Good that you got it to reupdate. However I have another question. if /dev/block/mmcblk0p18 is the recovery partition of the element, what do you think the chances are of the original posts' CWM working with ICS and the chances of dd working to write the recovery? Pantech seems to have hobbled the element's fastboot, so I don't know if they did the same to ddcould any one here upload a copy of the recovery for ICS, as i lost my backup and currently have a bad image flashed to it. the command down below executed form adb shell or term emulator will make a file called recovery.img on your sdcard.
<br /> dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18 of=/sdcard/recovery.img<br />
its ok now i got it to reupdate
I use this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.noshufou.android.su&hl=enI managed to root the pantech element (with ics) using instructions here (http://pastebin.com/HyEyzHJw) all root apps work perfectly (root explorer, titanium, etc...) but they never actually ask permission to superuser.apk... they simply all have root access... can someone please post the superuser.apk that is working with the tablet...? thank you!
Titanium does not detect superuser apk (I think it is normal because it also does not show up when using titanium on all of my other android devices) anyway...removed superuser manually and thru settings after removing data... and installed from market again and again and again, even tried the other superuser app from the market, and no way, it never asks for permission... I really think my issue has to do with the su binary I uploaded to the tablet during the rooting process... can anyone provide a su binary?Try to uninstall superuser, both from data and from system using titanium backup, reboot your tablet and install it from the play store. Don't worry the su is still on your system, so deleting superuser is not gonna take root from your tablet. After installing Superuser, use it for update the su executable. Don't forget to check the superuser settings to see if you granted automatic roots rights to the applications without notifying you.
The old way of rooting doesn't work anymore. Read a couple of posts above yours for the new way.Quick question, I'm hoping someone will point me in the right directions. My element has already been updated to ICS from the download on PanTech website, I am following the directions and am getting the following message when trying to root.
fastboot flash recovery cwm-126.96.36.199-pororo.img
sending 'recovery' (5784 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.406s]
FAILED (remote: Not Support !!)
finished. total time 0.414s
Any help would be greatly appreciated, is this possibly because I upgraded to ICS first?
I've rooted my element. And now trying to flash google now on ics. However, without working cwm, i don't seem to be able to flash google now. Any other recovery suggestions? Most of google now zip files require cwm recovery though.
