Quadrooter Qualcomm Exploit

Quadrooter Qualcomm Exploit

Quadrooter-vulnerability-affects-nearly-1-billion-Snapdragon-powered-Android-devices

QuadRooter sounds like another serious Android security exploit. One which can apparently allow a malicious app to gain root access on Qualcomm based Android phones and tablets, enabling the app to then do pretty much what it pleases. According to Check Point, the research group that discovered QuadRooter, up to 900 million Qualcomm Android devices could be affected. This exploit targets the Qualcomm drivers which is why it is specific to this hardware. As of the Augusts 1st security update Google has patched 3 of the 4 vulnerabilities and will patch the last one in the September 1st update. To keep your device safe from these bugs it is always bests to stay on top of your security updates. One of the best ways to protect your phone from malicious software is to only download apps from google play or trusted sources.

quadrooter-scanner

If you want to check and see if your device can possible be vulnerable to this threat then you can download and run QuadRooter Scanner by check pointPersonally I am hoping that a developer can figure out this exploit and use it to get many android users root access. I am sure someone can create a app that gets root then injects supersu and su binary into the device. If you are hoping for the same I recommend not updating to new security patches and give the developers some time to get devices root access. 

I wouldn’t be surprise to see this QuadRooter vulnerability implemented into Kingroot app some time soon, as it would make there app unstoppable on Android devices. What do you think about this bug please comment below and let me know.

RSD Lite for Mac and Linux

Screen Shot 2016-07-14 at 5.24.12 PM

So many people have asked me if RSD lite Program works on Mac or Linux and every time i have to tell them “Nope only windows”. I was on XDA developers and a user named Liboicl uploaded a awesome script that turns Motorola Firmware XML files into fastboot commands for a linux machine. After Downloading and checking it out I decided that I would also make it work on Mac and give it a little face lift. 🙂 NOTE This script also checks the MD5 of each file and compares them to the XML file list.

How to use RSD-FLASH.SH file on your Mac or Linux machines.

  1.  Download the RSD-Lite-Mac-Linux.zip here. scroll down the page a little
  2. Extract the zip to your desktop leaving you with a folders called RSD-Lite-Mac-Linux
  3. Download the Motorola Firmware you need from HERE or HERE then extract all files in firmware.zip to RSD-Lite-Mac-Linux folder.
  4. open a Terminal and CD to folder RSD-Lite-Mac-Linux
  5. Command to flash device is ./rsd-flash.sh [name of xml file you want to use]  EXAMPLES flashfile.xml or servicefile.xml
  6. press enter to start the flash from terminal
  7. watch for any errors. If no errors at the end of the script then press enter to reboot the device.

NOTE

Motorola devices must be in bootloader / AP fastboot mode to use this tool.

  1. Power off device
  2. hold volume down and power to boot the device into AP fastboot mode so that you can flash.

If you have a windows machine that is fine also as you can still use RSD lite form Motorola

So we finally have some official info on the new Motorola Moto Z coming to Verizon. Model is XT1650 and the code name is Griffin. I got my hands on some of the wallpapers and bootanimation if you would like to take a look at them along with a fully system dump if you want it, new apps maybe. 🙂 I am really liking the idea of moto Mods on this device and can’t wait to go pick one up and try it out. The downside to Moto Mods is that you will either have to keep the mod on your device all the time or carry them around with you which will be a pain so some, time will tell. Found out that the release date for Verizon is July 14th for preorder and the 19th to be in stores. cant wait to check this bad boy out its a big bummer that it is Verizon only right now.

Android 7.0 Nougat

Today Google Official unveiled the new Android 7.0 Nougat statue above. This is exciting news because it normally means that the official release of Android 7.0 firmware is just around the corner and Nexus device will be out of the preview stage on Android N. There also looks to be 2 new Nexus device coming from HTC this year code named MARLIN and SAILFISH. I havent seen anything official on them but look forward to there announcement as well. From what i have read looks like these device will be very similar with slightly different price points and specs. I really hope that HTC hits a home run with this years Nexus device. I think that it is going to be hard to top the Nexus 6p which is one solid device. Remember to check RootJunkysdl.com as soon as the new Nexus 7.0 official firmware gets released as I will be creating flash all files with wipe and no wipe options and repackaging the firmware to make it easy to install Nougat on your Nexus devices. I am sure i will also have a video on the process as well 🙂

Sony Xperia Bootloader Unlock Tutorial

Sony Xperia Bootloader Unlock Tutorial

unlockbootloader_phones

Sony just like many other manufacturers has there own Bootloader Unlock program.  This program is designed for Developers but can be used by anyone to get greater control over there Android device.  In most cases unlocking the bootloader on your Sony Xperia device will void the warranty. The best practice is to fully test the operation of your device before you unlock the bootloader. Most of the time when you unlock your bootloader it will wipe data factory reset the device so make sure you backup everything of importance before starting this process. Now that the WARNINGS are out of the way lets get into this tutorial.

Directions you will need to unlock the bootloader on your Sony Xperia device

Install the Android SDK or just the ADB and fastboot files extract the adb and fastboot files to a folder.

If you are on windows you may need the drivers for your device also and HERE is a great place to look for them

adb fastboot files

 

In your device, open the dialler and enter *#*#7378423#*#* to access the service menu.

Tap Service info > Configuration > Rooting Status. Check if Bootloader unlock allowed says Yes. Also write down your IMEI from this screen.

Screenshot_2016-06-05-06-05-13Screenshot_2016-06-05-06-05-24

Now that you have your files setup and your IMEI number written down you can go to the SONY DEVELOPER UNLOCK BOOTLOADER SITE

Select your Sony Xperia device from the list at the bottom of the site and click continue.

On the next page you need to enter your email address so that Sony can verify that you arent a bot and sent you a link with your unlock code.

Open your email account and look for email from Sony with this in it. “You have requested to unlock the boot loader of your Xperia™ device. To verify this, click the following link: Click Here To Proceed”

Once the website loads up you will need to enter your IMEI number that you wrote down earlier or dail *#06# from the phone dailer to view your IMEI number.

IMEI2

Once you submit your IMEI you will get the rest of the directions to unlock the bootloader like below.

sony commands

Now that you have the full directions from Sony its time to unlock the bootloader on your Xperia device.

These direction will be for windows but it is basically the same for mac and linux.

  1. Turn on developer Options on your device and enable adb debugging. outlined in picture above.
  2. Open your adb and fastboot folder. Then with your mouse right click and select open a command window here. Alternative is to open command prompt and CD to the adb and fastboot folder.
  3. Now enter this command ( adb devices ) in the command window. you should have a popup on the phone to allow adb from this computer. allow it
  4. run command ( adb devices ) again this time you should see your serial number followed by the word device. if you get this far it means that your drivers and adb are working properly.  See picture below

adbsss

5.  From here lets reboot the device to bootloader mode with command ( adb reboot bootloader ) or follow sonys lead by powering off the device then press the Volume up button at the same time as you connect the other end of the USB-cable.  Either method will reboot the device to bootloader mode.

6.  Now run command ( fastboot devices ) again this will return with your device serial number and say fastboot after it.

fastbootssss

7.  Finally we can send the Unlock command that we got from Sony. Mine is ( fastboot -i 0x0fce oem unlock 0xE30FD3E75A61F33C ) but yours will very.

8.  look at your phone and follow any directions that come up on the screen and then thats it your done.

Once the process has fully finished then you can send command ( fastboot reboot ) to boot the device back up again. First boot up will take much longer then normal, it could take as long as 10 minutes to boot up.

Now that you have unlocked your bootloader you can easily install custom roms with cool hacks and mods. Root access and using root apps is in your near future. If you want to learn more about your sony device check out some of my video tutorials HERE

Creating your first Android Icon Pack

Creating your first Android Icon Pack

app icon

Notiflux a youtube fan contacted me the other day to see if i would like some custom Icons to go with my RootJunky logo and colors. I told him, I would love it.  From there Notiflux created me some awesome icons using Gimp a photo editing program. You can also use programs like Paint.net and Adobe Photoshop which is my favorite. With these cool new icons in hand I had to take on the task of creating a Icon Pack App for them.

 

paint.net

Creating your first Android Icon Pack can be a little challenging but I hope that this post will help you along the way. One of the first things you need to do it download and install the Android SDK which is included in Android StudioAfter installing Android Studio you will need to update the Android SDK to get the latest version, check this post for help.  NOTE  I used Eclipse to build my apps as that is want i am use to but if you are just getting started it is highly recommend to use Android Studio. 

eclipse

Creating your first Android Icon Pack is really easy if you use Apex Icon Pack Sample as your template. This is really helpful in getting everything to need setup and running.  Open Android Studio or Eclipse and Import the Sample app. Once done you can go ahead and make some quick edits to it and have your own icon pack app.  While editing I have found it easier to look at the XML files instead of the Graphical layout or resource views, its is much more logical this way.

A couple really good recourse to help you in editing the Apex Icon Pack Sample can be found Here and Here. The main files that you will be editing are the files in folder RES and SRC the rest of these files can me left alone for the most part. You can put your edited Icons in the drawable-xhdpi folder. Once you have make all your edits you can either run the app on a connected phone over adb or you can export the app to a APK file and then install it on any device you want to.

It you have a day or to to read through all the this information and get a Icon Pack of your own, it can really be a lot of fun. Use your imagination and there is no telling what awesome things you might create. If you would like to Check out my Icon Pack that works with a bunch of Android home launchers like Apex and Nova click here and you can download it from the Google Play Store.

Extra Credit

Link to the files i used in my app can be found here, should be a great help if you need to compare some code like i did.
