YOU ARE A GOD !!! How on earth could you possibly do that so quickly ?
Yeah, let's use it to rock it \o/
Any chance you could make a version with Ro.secure=1? Does this break anything essential? We apparently need it for sky go to function.
Chainfire for President :D
One beer donated!
Thx for the great work!
and then there was root..
Thanks Andrew Dodd. Not sure I really use that! (i.e., a terminal?) Would prefer to use Sky Go!
+James King I may make a ro.secure=1 version later tonight or tomorrow - no promises, though. +Andrew Dodd Not really, it just makes it slightly less convenient.... you have to use "su" and "adb remount" doesn't work (use: adb shell -> su -> mount -o rw,remount /system -> ... any other root commands ... -> exit -> exit). Just a little different.
That would be great +Chainfire - thanks for all you do :)
For me, not having ro.secure=0 is a pain in the butt... But I guess I can just fix that myself. Do you know where that setting is parsed? It might be possible to make an alteration elsewhere that gives the best of both worlds.
+Andrew Dodd I'm afraid I don't even know what your question means! I just know this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=23399899&highlight=ro+secure#post23399899
Anychance someone could post a link to download the Rom in question ?
+Andrew Dodd Unfortunately the setting has to be "baked" into the kernel at this time. But I can make two versions ...
I just started looking at the source for adbd - might be possible to hack it up to ignore ro.secure and provide "insecure" privileges anyway... https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_system_core/blob/ics/adb/adb.c#L874 - maybe a project for Wednesday.
That's actually a great idea! Don't forget to let it use /sbin/sh instead of /system/bin/sh if it doesn't already.
EDIT: Can't believe I never thought of this. Modifying code now :)
Code modified... there'll be an update to CF-Root for LPQ tomorrow, after I fix some other problems (or at least try to). It will have ro.secure=1, and have patched adbd :)
Wow. Sounds like that is an awesome solution to this... problem with Sky Go, and hopefully other items :)
Just a quick FYI - I am now on official LPQ ROM, with official LPQ kernel, rooted, and with SuperSU installed. I've hidden root, using SuperSU, and I can run Sky Go. Fantastic. Now I just hope I can use a Chainfire Kernel and get the same functionality with Sky Go!
guys.. i want to flash LPQ rom using mobile odin.. can i flash cf-root at the same time?
orait thank you..
+Chainfire I was using CF-Root for official LPQ with SuperSU but I noticed some lags on boot. It seems that SuperSU is a little to slow on auto-grant root for some apps like SetCPU or LBE Privacy Guard. Did anyone else notice something like this?
Is it possible to uninstall SuperSU and install SU instead? SU on LPH didn't make problems on boot.
HI CHAHINFIRE I M SO DESPARETE MY SGS2 FULL BRICKED I DID THE JTAG 2 TIMES AGAIN AND AGAIND COMES TO BRICKED .I LIVED THIS STORY MY G.TAB 7 BUT YOUR SGT BOOTLOADER PATCHED RESCUED ME PLS HELP ME ABOUT TAHT
+Chainfire if we select the LPQ stock rom in mobile odin.. the kernel part already have file... so i just tap at open file again and select the cfroot to replace the kernel then start flashing?
ho ho got the answer in the thread.. just replace the kernel with cfroot kernel...
Yes, it is as easy as it looks ;)
CF-Root for LPQ has been updated to v5.4. SD issue fixed (?), ro.secure=1, patched ADB, newer SuperSU. http://download.chainfire.eu/152/CF-Root/SGS2/CF-Root-SGS2_XX_XEO_LPQ-PROPER-v5.4-CWM5.zip
