Please help in rooting the alien dalvik as android apps needing root privilege could not function. Also wifi direct is highly needed to transfer large files from one handset to other.

I have done it following the instructions but it's not working at least in my case.

@partha9940: Did you try changing the settings in the app? I also use it and it works if you do the following:

  1. Go to the settings page (tool symbol in upper right corner)
  2. Click on security
  3. Click on automatic response
  4. Select allow

Now all new requests will be accepted without prompt, I think @coderus (the developer of the app) said that there is a problem with the prompt interaction between SFOS and Dalvik.

If you read the comments there are instructions how to use the app without using the accept without prompt app, which will give every android app root privileges.

I have tried everything that written over there but it didn't work. I think it's my ill fate tha's responsible for this situation..

Let me guess. You're sporting the Aqua Fish? The solution from coderus currently only works for Jolla Phone. Not Jolla C and not Aqua Fish.
