Samsung Epic 4G Root Already Available; How to do it yourself? Easy!

August 30, 2010, By Alex Ion

Although only hours away from its official launch on Sprint tomorrow, we’re hearing that the Samsung Epic 4G fell into the hands of a developer who managed to root it in a jiffy. According to the guy, rooting the Epic 4G is just as simple as it is for the Captivate, the Vibrant, or the regular Galaxy S you’ve played with.

So how exactly do you root the Samsung Epic 4G? First you buy the phone from Sprint or Amazon tomorrow and then you follow the instructions below. Remember, that method requires adb commands:

Download this file
http://evo4g.me/downloads/evo-root.zip

Run these commands thru adb
adb push c:downloadsrageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp
adb shell
chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
cd /data/local/tmp
./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin

Exit out of the adb shell, and type adb shell again. This time it should drop you to # instead of $.

If it goes back to $, run the exploit again,
cd /data/local/tmp
./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin

And exit out of adb and then adb shell again to see if it’s #

If it doesnt work the first time, repeat 4-5 times and let us know. It should work!

So have any of you rooted your Epic 4G? Does it work?
