How to root WITHOUT downgrading

How to Root WITHOUT Downgrading


1) Download miniadb_tbolt2.zip from here: mini-adb_tbolt2.zip
md5: ef01f616471673d3eeb71b4cac4b8118


2) Set up adb
-Extract miniadb_tbolt2.zip and place the unzipped folder onto the root of your C\ drive on your PC
-Open a command window. Windows 7, click on start bubble, type "command" in the search box. A small black window should open up.


3) Download DHD Downgrade folder 


4) Open the DHDDowngrade.zip file, then the folder contained inside of it. Transfer "Fre3vo" into the tbolt2 folder with adb/fastboot. (ignore the rest of the files in DHDDongrade, fre3vo is the only one you need)


5) In your command window: change to the tbolt2 directory by typing:
cd c:\mini-adb_tbolt2 (your promt should change to c:\mini-adb_tbolt2>)
*note that in the next few steps,anything in bold type is an adb command. you can directly copy from this window,and paste into your command window to eliminate typos.


6) Enable usb debugging, plug in your phone via usb. Select "charge only" mode.


7) Make sure adb is seeing your phone: 
adb devices (should return your serial number)


8) Enter the commands from your link,one at a time,hit enter after each:


adb push fre3vo /data/local/tmp


adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/fre3vo


adb shell /data/local/tmp/fre3vo -debug -start F0000000 -end FFFFFFFF


9) Make sure it worked. when you see "exploiting device" then your command prompt again:
adb shell (if your prompt changes to a # youre good to go) 


10) Run Revolutionary again. This time it will work really fast. You can have it install clockwork if you wish to use that recovery.


11) Flash the superuser 3.07 files linked on Revolutionary's info page




Here's what you'll see in the command window (red are my inputs, blue are just additional comments):
