How to check do you have all needed drivers?

1. Check is phone visible in FlashTool after upgrade and before root process.
2. In command prompt type command adb devices
If response is:
List of devices attached

and not :
List of devices attached
device ?????????????????????
Then you need to upgrade drivers.


Drivers UpGrade

Plug phone and in Control Panel / System / Device Manager remove semc drivers. UnPlug / RePlug phone it will start search for new drivers if you have follow first red typed text it should find new drivers and install them. And phone should be visible with FlashTool.


+10000000 to DooMLoRD for rewritting tutorial. Dude your tutorials rulz!

OR

Watch on youtube >>> <<< +100000000 silveraero. Good work!

FOR INSTALLING RECOVERY

Mine with hybrid xRecovery --> FlashTool 0.2.9.1 with Z xRecovery 0.3-GBReady ( Thanks Z ) & updated X10 drivers
OR
DooMLoRD's pure patched --> FlashTool_0.2.9.1-GBready_root_xRec

Watch on youtube >>> <<< +100000000 silveraero. Good work!

OR

Also you can follow all this in picture & video version by DooMLoRD.

Another +10000000 to DooMLoRD. Thanks dude!

LAST WARNING FOR ALL PEOPLE --- DO NOT USE OPTIMIZE FUNCTION IN FLASHTOOL AFTER UPGRADE. BECOUSE OPTIMIZE FUNCTION USES PRE-BUILD BUILD.PROP FILE FROM ANDROID 2.1 AND IT WILL BREAK YOUR OS BOOTING. BUT IF YOU HAVE INSTALL XRECOVERY AND THEN DONE OPTIMIZE U CAN TRY USE THIS >> FlashTool_Optimize_FiX_xRecovery << OR un-tested method using batch script >> FlashTool_Optimize_FiX_Manual <<.

P.S.
If you can't enter in flash mode after reboot use DooMLoRD method called "pull out batery"

HAHA!!!

it works!

and looking at the files posted by aZuZu i can tell u that this will work on ALL BRANDED/GENERIC/REGIONAL 2.3.3 GB FWs... provided that the kernel.sin file remains same (which it will for all 3.0.1.G.0.75 FW)...

but the steps are not correct

u need to do this:

FOR ROOTING
  1. make sure u are on stock 2.3.3 FW
  2. enable Unknown Sources & USB debugging in Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Unknown Sources & Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB Debugging
  3. power down device
  4. Flash -- Kernel downgrade ... [ Leave FlashTool running] --
  5. remove usb cable
  6. Power on device
  7. immediately connect usb cable
  8. Wait till you see any info in FlashTool, then click root.
  9. After root reboot is done
  10. pull out battery and wait for few mins
  11. enter flash mode. and
  12. Flash -- Kernel upgrade.
  13. Power on your phone and phone will be rooted.

@aZuZu
great work aZuZu

now u can remove the [REQUEST] & [TESTING] tags

Will come in handy when UK Generic rolls out.

Apparently each regions frimware is optimised for that particular region.

Hi everybody!
First of all thanks for the big effort

Can anyone please tell me if once this root procedure has been successfully completed it will be now possible to install xRecovery 0.3 as usual (the same of 2.1)?

Many thanks!
