Root of EVOLVEO ANDROID BOX H4 Quad Core multimedia center



  • Hi,
    I was having trouble installing SuperSU on this device.
    With adb over ethernet I was able to use su, but installing using the embedding method https://su.chainfire.eu/#embed-exploit failed.
    unzip was where the script did not expect it (/system/xbin/unzip) and boot partition wasn't in any by-name subfolder (only in /dev/block/boot)

    Here is what I needed to do (in adb shell):

    su
    mount -o remount,rw /system
    mount -o remount,rw /
    mkdir /tmp
    mkdir /dev/block/by-name
    ln -s /dev/block/boot /dev/block/by-name/boot
    ln -s /system/xbin/unzip /sbin/unzip
    unzip /path/to/supersu.zip META-INF/com/google/android/* -d /tmp
    sh /tmp/META-INF/com/google/android/update-binary dummy 1 /path/to/supersu.zip
    

    then it was successful.

    It would be nice if the update_binary script was ready for these different locations
