Root the Dell Streak 7 that came with HoneyComb 3.2 Native It is done ... have Rooted my Dell Streak... I did have to modify the way it was done from the instructions on XDA due to issues with SuperUser7, but Will Provide links to what I used instead..
Followed a good portion of the instructions From XDAdevelopers Props to several folks but mostly to EwanG for their easy to follow instructions link at the bottom of the post.
******Warning ... this could brick your
1) this is just me ... but I would down load these file on the Dell Streak 7 directly and use ES File Explore to copy them to the root of the internal SD card (internal memory) ... Download the Fastboot+ADB.zip file for Clockwork Mod 188.8.131.52 from the XDA Developers thread
**** If you have problems with Superuser7.zip Like I will show later.. use the following files they worked for me but..... YMMV only worked for me .. might not for you!!!****
Eclair / Froyo / Gingerbread / Honeycomb / IceCreamSandwich (2.1 – 4.0.3)
Kudoo's to ChainsDD
2) Download the Clockwork mod 184.108.40.206 file from the XDA Developers thread or from:
3) Go into Settings->Applications on the Dell Streak 7 and turn on "Run Applications from Unknown Sources"
4) Go to Development Settings and select "USB Debugging"
5) Unpack the Fastboot+ADB file into a directory on your computer where you can find it again
I put this on my c:\dellroot so I could find it easily enough even when using command line.
6) Attach the Streak to your PC, and copy the "Drivers.zip" file from the root directory of the Streak (/sdcard) to the same directory where you unpacked the Fastboot file ***Ok here is where I ran in to the first problem.. Win XP would also not mount the Dell Streak 7 in usb mass storage so I had to use my MacBook Pro and Android File Transfer to get this part done. :(
7) Turn off your Streak after you have copied this file, and disconnect it from the PC
8) Unpack the drivers.zip file and find the "Setup.MSI" file. Execute this file to install the drivers you will need
9) Put your Streak into Fastboot mode - i.e. turn it off, then turn it on by pressing the Power button while holding the Vol DOWN (-) at the same time. This can take up to 20 seconds
10) You will get some red text followed by a white line saying something about Fastboot USB downloading is active
11) Connect the streak to the PC now, and it should install an Android ADB driver. Depending on what you have already setup you may get some drivers installed successfully, and some not. In general if you've been following this guide, you'll be ok (FYI on my Dell D620 I know its old but It took like 10 min to get the drivers and stuff installed all the while it killed my usb mouse and keyboard while it was installing the drivers. Every thing came back and worked just fine but .. want you to know it took for ever on winxp.)
12) Open a command line for the folder where you have fastboot and your recovery image (ClockWorkMod) - in windows navigate to the folder, and hold the shift key while right clicking *** did not do this ... not sure what they were trying to accomplish..*** Prior to doing this I put the S&_3.2-220.127.116.11.img in the same folder as the Win32 files. So everything was in the same directory.. Remember I am Using WinXP Pro so yours may be a bit different. Mine is c:\dellroot\Win32
If I have to tell you this .... You really may want to re-think doing any of this ... but here goes.
to get a command prompt click on start > Run > type in "cmd" (with out the quotes)
This will get you a classic dos (not really dos, but for our purposes that works) command line.
Type in "cd .." with out the quotes and return you may have to do this a few times to get to the root of the c drive till you get to just c:\
Then you want to "cd dellroot" or what ever directory you used.
13) On the command line type the following:
fastboot -i 0x413C flash recovery recovery.img (where recovery.img is the ClockworkMod or other recovery file)
If you did everything right then you should see.
14) On the command line type the following:
fastboot -i 0x413C reboot
15) Your device should now reboot
16) To get it to reboot into CWM, turn the Streak off, and then turn it on again while holding the Power Button and Volume UP (+) at the same time. This may take up to 30 seconds
From here you would follow the normal CWM options to install just the root files (Superuser7 for one example) or install a custom ROM.
Ok here is where I ran in to troubles.. with the Superuser7.zip file
TheManii over and XDA says to do the following
Copy superuser.zip to SD card
Reboot into streakmod
Select "update from update.zip"
Navigate to superuser.zip
Hehehe... not so simple for us that don't develop all the time..
After you use the Power and + to get in to the recovery you will get this
Use the volume buttons to navigate to #2 Software Upgrade via update.pkg on SD card
And press the power button to select it.
once you are in the CWM recovery use the volume buttons to navigate to the install zip from sdcard. (this means internal memory .. not the physical SD card if you have one that will show up as SD card2)
then choose zip from internal sdcard
Then Chose Superuser7.zip
Then confirm the install
If you are lucky everything went fine and just select go back till you find the reboot and select it and your are rooted...
If you get
