for some reason my phone has been in a boot loop all day. i read somewhere that this could be due to getting out of the wifi range and then rebooting, which i think happened. in anycase, i am now stuck in a boot loop. ive been doing a lot of researching on how to recover from this, but i basically gave up. i am resorting to restoring to factory settings. BUT before i do this, i wanted to backup my data from the internal storage. i need to pull from the /data/data folder but i need to be rooted in order to to that because that folder does not have read permissions... i tried doing this all day but with no success. i followed the following guide on rooting this phone:
How To: ROOT your Droid Charge
specifically this section:
i got through the CWM part, but i am now stuck in the root explorer part... since i cant boot i cant actually set any permissions for the folders through root explorer... is there a way of doing it through the command prompt?If you are on the latest build (FP1) and you just want to root and stay on Stock, without losing user data, follow these steps:
**Note: To keep stock recovery from overwriting CWM you'll need to make an edit to a system file. If you are uncomfortable with this, you might want to skip this step and go to the next section.**
1. Boot in to CWM recovery, use the quick primer instructions above if you're new to this (Note: You should already have installed CWM as instructed above)
2. Select "mounts" menu then mount/system. If the option says unmount/system then you are good to go.
3. Select "install zip from sdcard" then "choose zip from sdcard"
4. Find and install the Superuser zip.
5. Select “Reboot” option.
6. Get root explorer (or similar, such as ES or Astro) from the Market/Play Store. Make sure you mount as R/W (in root explorer, there's a button at the top)
7. Navigate to system, etc and locate the file "install-recovery.sh" and either delete it, or rename it to "install-recovery.sh.bak"
8. You will now have to go back and use Odin and install cwm once again (follow steps above as you did the first time)
9. Reboot phone.
10. You're done. You now have a rooted phone and you can install an app (we recommend Titanium Backup) to freeze and/or remove bloatware.
also, whenever i do:
i get this: '$  segmentation fault su'
in other words i cant get '#' to show up. am i doing something wrong?
any help in the matter will be greatly appreciated!!
