PRS-T1 Root

Hi,

I have never rooted an Android device before, and cannot understand the google-translated instructions here: http://translate.google.com/translat...hp%3Ft%3D21458. Has anyone written out instructions in English?

Specifically, I am following the "without MS Windows" instructions (on a Mac). It just doesn't seem to work, but that could be because I am misreading the instructions. For example, exactly which files do we have to copy, where? Also, I don't understand what "sync" in step 5 means, nor exactly when I should press Home and Menu, nor what it means to "include reader".

I hope someone can help me out! I'm really excited to try out these new android things.

Thanks!

Also, if this is not the right forum for discussion of rooting the Sony Reader, please let me know where I could find a more appropriate place to ask my questions. Thanks!

Thanks for your reply. However, as I mentioned, I actually don't understand the directions, since they are translated from Russain. I have tried following the "without MS Windows" directions, and either they don't work, or I am doing it incorrectly. Can someone help? (The specific problems are in my original message.)

Hi there,

In generall I disagree with Ashjuk, but in this particular case I'm with him

But in case you want to make you unhappy:
Copy "PRS-T1 Updater.package" and the two folders "tmp" and "update" (to be found in the folder sdcard) to your T1 (root folder, what ever shows up in Finder on your Mac)

Regarding 5) I'm not used to Mac but

should be clear. For Windows I would translate it to Safe-Disconnect removeable media. Do whatever you do to safely eject a removeable media.

Hold MENU and HOME buttons pressed while restarting "Hold down 5 seconds after the screen appeared Opening book."

B) find a friend with a Windows Box and run the root-package form there

But once again if you are not knowing what you are doing consider Ashjuk,
and use the T1 the way it was designed, and read.....
