Did you install the drivers in the drivers directory?



Yes it but it has some strangeness, but in apps it works fine, i tested in gangstar mv, and angry birds and will now test it in some fps's like nova modern combat and brothers in arms 2. In the browser it doesn't work, in opera mini - works.
yeah i always thought it should be mentioned in the original instructions. you need get the flashtool dialog box up, and press ok the second the green light goes on on the x10, or else the connection will just cause the x10 to reboot normally

are there any plans to bring out a Linux version of this?

i realise it may be a big job, but i find it ironic that i require a Windows PC to update my linux Based phone. i run ubuntu and my housemate is a mac fan.

can anyone point me in the right direction? i would really love to have MT on my phone but cant get near a Windows PC that has the right permissions to do this.

Regards,

Have you tried running it under Wine or PlayOnLinux? I know that the program runs under PlayonLinux, but haven't tested communication yet.

Default FlashTool to be used for rooting only?

I'm a bit confused after reading through many threads. Hopefully someone can tell me if I've got the following right:

I'm running an original 2.0.A.0.504, on a X10. What I want to have is the Eminence ROM. What I now believe I have to do:

step 1. Root my X10 (got it a few days ago, so no userdata issues)
step 2. Backup APN (telecom settings) data, so I will be able to make phone calls and use internet/3G/HDSPA afterwards
step 3. continue as this guy says. (oops, not allowed to post links yet, but it is post number 2059098 on androidforums dot com.

My questions:
1. Can I use the FlashTool to do nothing but root my X10 (step 1)? It looks like the most convenient tool around. I understand that i must first install (and use) SEUS (sony ericson update service) to provide the right drivers.
2. If yes, is it unrootable?
3. Am I correct when I think that you cannot use this tool to flash custom roms like Eminence because they are not 'signed'?

Thanks for all your help.

Default Flashtool looks to work but nothing done

Hi there!

After some research in several posts, I tried the new flashtool 0.2.3 on my X10 Mini Pro U20a, but after the whole process when I reboot my X10, it has nothing done. do I am doing something wrong? my steps are:

turn off my phone
Run Flashtool
Connect button>x10mini pro
press back key
plug the USB
green light gets on,
Flash button with>X10a_2_0_2_A_0_24 Generic
then it says:

But after the restart nothing has been done
My Xperia is still with its branded firmware android 1.6

Any clue guys?

Thanks in advance.
