how to root an Orange SF once clockwork recovery img is installed

6 replies
Found 28th Nov 2010
OK want to try the froyo 2.2 ROM from here

android.modaco.com/con…rt/

but want to do a backup first with Titanium Backup

but Titanium Backup requires the phone to be rooted so I have downloaded and installed UniversalAndroot as discussed here

chrislowthian.co.uk/how…24/

because I have already installed the clockwork recovery img

I have run the UniversalAndroot app and superuser is installed but when I try to run Titanium backup it say the phone is not rooted!

any ideas folk

is there another way to root the phone without removing clockwork recovery?

thanks

EliTom

cheers shanecr

do I have to remove clockwork recovery or will this work alongside clockwork recovery

just was concerned thet this img would overwrite / remove the clockwork recovery img - as the ROMs I have downloaded require clockwork recovery to load them

EliTom

this shouldnt touch the clockwork mod as far as im aware.

you hinstalled busybox? do you have a superuser icon on the apps page?



busybox would not install

yes have superuser icon

but if I run ConnectBot to get a command line as local then type "su" I get permission denied !!!

so I guess it is not correctly rooted

any other ideas - thanks for the help so far BTW
