    One Click Root for the Cricket Samsung Galaxy Indulge


    k0nane


    's thread from Android Forums is copied below. This was originally developed for the MetroPCS version, but we have confirmed that it works with the Cricket version as well.

    Remember that this will void your warranty.

    One Click Root for the Samsung Galaxy Indulge
    Fully working, includes Superuser



    About

    Greetings, Indulge users! After quite a bit of troubleshooting, poking around, and a few logcats, INC and I have got a full root package for you. There were several roadblocks along the way, most importantly that something appears to be interfering with the install of Superuser specifically, whether by signature or by package name.

    We've bypassed that. Included in this package is a modified, recompiled, resigned version of Superuser, along with a matching recompiled su binary. This has been tested on three devices, and is guaranteed to work.


    How To Install

    This package will automagically install the su binary, Superuser, and an updated Busybox to your device. To use it:

    1. Extract the contents of the zip to a folder
    2. Put your device in USB Debugging mode (Settings > Applications > Development)
    3. Connect your device to USB and install drivers
    4. Double-click run.bat

    And that's it! You'll be rooted.


    Downloads
    We do not use file hosts with waiting times!


    FAQ

    Q: My antivirus thinks this is a virus!
    A: What your AV is detecting is Rage Against The Cage, the exploit that's used to root your phone. It's an Android exploit, and cannot harm your PC. Turn your AV off.

    Q: My phone is connected, but it says it's not!
    A: Make sure your device is in USB Debugging mode.


    Credits


    • Silvist: generous donation of remote access time during the development process
    • noobnl, Firon, joeykrim: Original one-click batch file for Epic 4G
    • And of course, all of my fellow Illegitimus Non Carborundum members for their continued support.

    Donations


    This and any other INC productions are not, and will never be donationware. However, I and INC have put several late nights into this - and it's only the beginning! Your generosity - if you feel like showing it - is deeply appreciated! Note: Please PM me (remember he is from AndroidForums and not MCF) if you donate! Thanks!

    Hi. N00b here. I just had a quick question regarding this link for rooting the Samsung Indulge. I see it was posted on June 11 and it is now Nov. 17. Is this still the most up to date and correct info on rooting an Indulge? I just got one yesterday and came up off of a little over four hundred dollars and the thought of something going wrong with a root makes my stomach hurt. I just want to be sure that this info is not out of date already. Thanks.

    I am trying to Root Samsung Galaxy Indulge, but it will not let me, is there a block on it? It says the page file is invalid, and i have followed everything step by step, but it just will not work.

    Have you recieved an answer to your question?? Because I JUST signed up here and i'm trying to root my Galaxy Indulge from Metro PCS but I need to know about the "updated" root option thing (the root or UNroot). I wanna be able to UNroot it later. You know?

    Rooting (Android OS)

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    For the method of cloning plants, see
    Cutting (plant)


    .









    Phones like the
    Galaxy Nexus


    , part of the
    Google Nexus


    series, are designed to allow root access
    [1]





    Rooting is a process allowing users of
    mobile phones


    ,
    tablet PCs


    , and other devices running the
    Android operating system


    to attain
    privileged control


    (known as "
    root access


    ") within Android's subsystem. Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that
    carriers


    and hardware manufacturers put on some devices, resulting in the ability to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized
    apps


    that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user. Rooting is analogous to
    jailbreaking


    devices running the Apple
    iOS operating system


    or the Sony
    PlayStation 3


    . On Android, rooting can also facilitate the complete removal and replacement of the device's operating system.
    As Android was derived from the
    Linux


    kernel, rooting an Android device is similar in practice to accessing administrative permissions on Linux or any other Unix-like computer such as
    FreeBSD


    or
    OS X


    .
    [
    edit


    ] Description


    Most devices running Android must be rooted in order to install custom versions of the Android system such as
    CyanogenMod


    . The stock configuration (unrooted), user-installed applications do not have direct access to the flash memory chip on the device and are not able to replace or modify the operating system itself. Rooting is also necessary for certain applications and widgets that require additional system and hardware rights such as rebooting the phone, certain backup utilities, and other access to other hardware such as status LEDs. Rooting is also needed to disable or remove manufacturer-installed applications such as
    City ID


    . Rooting the phone typically also includes installing an application called Superuser that supervises which applications are granted root rights.
    In contrast to
    iOS jailbreaking


    , rooting is not needed to run applications not distributed by the official Android Market (sometimes referred to as "
    sideloading


    "). However some
    carriers


    , like
    AT&T


    , prevent the installation of applications not on the
    Android Market


    in
    firmware


    ,
    [2]


    although the new
    Samsung Infuse 4G


    from
    AT&T


    allows running applications not downloaded from the market.
    [3]



    As of 2012 the Amazon
    Kindle Fire


    is locked to the Amazon app store instead of the Android market, and other vendors of Android devices may lock to other sources in the future. Access to alternate apps may require rooting but is not always necessary. As an example, for the Kindle fire it is possible to load the "easy installer" app from the Amazon app store and then use it to "sideload" apps from any source.
    [
    edit


    ] Risks


    One of the potential downsides to rooting is some phone makers consider it to be "modifying" the phone, which may void the warranty. However, if the phone is un-rooted before the user tries to use his or her warranty, there is no easy way for the warranty provider to know that the phone was previously rooted. There is also the potential risk of
    bricking


    the device while attempting to root the device. The term "
    bricking


    " is used to describe a device which has had its software modified improperly to the point where it is no longer functioning.
    [4]


    This term gets its name from the fact that, once bricked, a device will assume the functionality of a
    brick


    . Some humorously refer to this as "Paperweight Mode."
    [
    edit


    ] Process


    The process of rooting varies widely by device. It usually includes
    exploiting


    a security weakness in the firmware shipped from the factory. For example, shortly after the
    T-Mobile G1


    was released it was quickly discovered that anything typed using the keyboard was being interpreted as a command in a privileged (root) shell. Although Google quickly released a patch to fix this, a signed image of the old firmware was leaked giving people the ability to downgrade and use the original exploit to gain root access. Once this exploit is found, a custom recovery image that does not check the
    digital signature


    of a firmware update package can be flashed. In turn, using the custom recovery, a modified firmware update can be installed that typically includes the utilities (for example the Superuser app) needed to run apps as root.
    The
    Google-branded


    Android devices, the
    Nexus One


    ,
    Nexus S


    and the
    Galaxy Nexus


    , can have their boot-loaders unlocked by simply running the command "fastboot oem unlock" from a computer connected to the device while it is in boot-loader mode.
    [5]


    After accepting a warning the boot-loader will be unlocked so that a new system image can be written directly to flash without the need for an exploit.
    Recently,
    Motorola


    ,
    LG Electronics


    and
    HTC Corporation


    have added security features to their devices at the hardware level in an attempt to prevent retail Android devices from being rooted. For instance, the
    Motorola Droid X


    has a security boot-loader that will put the phone in "recovery mode" if unsigned firmware is loaded onto the device.
    [
    edit


    ] Industry reaction


    Until recently, the response of tablet and smartphone manufacturers and mobile carriers has typically been unsupportive of third-party firmware development. Manufacturers had expressed concern about improper functioning of devices running unofficial software
    [6]


    and related support costs. Moreover, firmware such as CyanogenMod sometimes offers features for which carriers would otherwise charge a premium (e.g.,
    tethering


    ). As a result, technical obstacles such as locked
    bootloaders


    and restricted access to root permissions have commonly been introduced in many devices. For example, in late December 2011,
    Barnes and Noble


    and
    Amazon.com, Inc.


    began pushing automatic,
    over-the-air


    firmware updates, 1.4.1 to
    Nook Tablets


    and 6.2.1 to
    Kindle Fires


    , that removed users' ability to gain root access to the devices. The Nook Tablet 1.4.1 update also removed users' ability to
    sideload


    apps from sources other than the official Barnes and Noble app store (without
    modding


    ).
    [7]



    [8]



    However, as community-developed software has grown popular,
    [9]



    [10]


    and following a statement by the Librarian of Congress (US) that permits the use of "jailbreaking" mobile devices,
    [11]


    manufacturers and carriers have softened their position regarding CyanogenMod and other unofficial firmware distributions, with some, including
    HTC


    ,
    [12]



    Samsung


    ,
    [13]



    Motorola



    [14]


    and
    Sony Ericsson


    ,
    [15]


    even actively providing support and encouraging development.
    In 2011, the need to circumvent hardware restrictions to install unofficial firmware lessened as an increasing number of devices shipped with unlocked or unlockable
    bootloaders


    , similar to the
    Nexus


    series of phones. Device manufacturer
    HTC


    has announced that it would support aftermarket software developers by making the bootloaders of all new devices unlockable.
    [6]



    [
    edit


    ] Legality


    [
    edit


    ] United States




    On July 26, 2010, the U.S. Copyright office announced a new exemption making it officially legal
    [16]


    to root a device and run unauthorized third-party applications, as well as the ability to
    unlock any cell phone for use on multiple carriers


    .

    Your anti virus programming is probably deleting the files. False detection as a virus since it's an exploit. Just a guess.
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    Sorry... mind reading machine is broken. I can't seem to visualize what anti virus software you have. I guess I won't be able to help you when it comes back online either. If it's not Symantec End Point Protection, then I don't have it installed.

    Google is your friend though. With a little input it can solve your problem. Please don't fill the forum with one liners because you haven't searched.

    EDIT: I understand this reply might seem rude, but you can see why I had to add something onto the forum to combine one liner replies. Your post prior to your last was actually 3 posts over time. You were bumping your post because no one had a response for you.

    Norton: right click on the icon, click disable antivirus.
    AVG: Open interface, tools, advanced settings, resident shield, disable.
    Avast: Right click, disable.
    Kasperski: look up avast.
    MS essentials: open, settings, real time protection, take the check mark off.

    Seriously, as Chris said, Google is the best friend for super simple questions like that. Forum is a great place to ask questions, but some common sense won't hurt.
    If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?
