Okay here comes FIRST ROOT for X10

It was done by Jerpelea, biktor_gj and Bin4ry!

Thanks go out to : ( No meaning of order )
McKebapp for Hosting the private Forum
Goroh_Kun for providing the flasher

Also to:
linshi[at]pdaclub.pl
ssjowowo
theonlyq
not.implemented.yet
marylandcookie
Balsat


This is Idiot proof in 3 steps (thanks Jerpelea for that )


Preparation:
Be sure that you have Seus installed and your phone was detected in Flashmod by Seus!
This is essential, because SEUS installes the drivers and the DeviceID gets written in Registry!


Look also in Posts 2-6 for additional informations



Files to download:

New Root (2/3 Step) Version download:


If you want update to R2BA026 download the files from post #4 -> Link
The guide stays the same!

This is automatic DeviceID Finder. Please extract it into step1 folder (this is folder where X10flash.bat is located) and overwrite Files. This will detect the DeviceID automatically and saves it to DeviceID.txt

Step5 R2 FIX & Market Fix: 06.07.2010
Rapidshare:
http://rapidshare.com/files/405375196/step5.rar.html



Step 0
Extract the file to a desired folder!
Please extract it to a folder without spaces.
For example:
C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Rooting is not good!
Better:
C:\Rooting\

If you are running a 64-Bit System you should have downloaded the additional file!
Please extract it and copy the "DevID"-folder in "Step1"-Folder AND in "X10a"-Folder! Just overwrite the existing files!

Step 1
Now you must run the first flash Process.
To do it just run the file: "1_downgrade_flash.cmd".
It will give you a screen like this:


If you see that you have to connect your X10 in Flashmode now!
Connecting in flashmode is easy:
Shutdown your phone -> Connect USB Cable TO PHONE -> Push and HOLD the Back-Button -> CONNECT USB Cable to PC.
If you see the green LED in the upper right corner you are in Flashmode!
Now quick press ENTER (you have ~5sec until X10 boots up and leaves flashmode)

If you done everything right you should see a lot of commands running in your Dosbox. It will look like this:


You have to wait a few minutes until you get this Message:



Congrats! Now you completed Step1! Please disconnect phone from PC an take your Battery out for ~5 sec.

Step 2

First startup the Phone and activate USB-Debugging:
Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB Debugging!
This looks like this:



Now execute the file named: "2_root_system.cmd" !
After you executed you should the this :


If you got a Error your USB-Debug mode doesnt work well. You have to reinstall new Pc-Companion! (Best is that you install thisone which your phone offers you)

If this step worked you should see this Screen at your phone after a few seconds:

run step 2 and select "update from sdcard" on phone. Be patient and don't push the button again! It will take a few seconds!

After it's done you should see this screens at your phone:





All you have to do now is wait until this finishes. The phone seems to restart 4-5 times.
If everything is done your phone will bootup automatically!

Now after your phone rebooted, please check again if USB-Debugging is still active!
If it's active you have to switch back to the open Command Prompt windows and Push any key to finish the step! This will install the rest of the software including the su and superuser.apk!
It will look like this if the step runs well:


Congrats you have finished step2!
If you have a X10i you are done here!

Step 3 - X10a Only!
Okay now you have to complete the conversion from X10i to X10a!
For this is step3!
To do it please run the file named: "3_patch_X10a_only.cmd"
After the copying is done you will see a similar window as in step1. It will tell you that you should connect your X10 in flashmode!
Please do it like in step 1. Connect the phone an press any button. The process will flash the baseband of X10a R2!

Now you are done
Congrats!


Thank to ghidda for the nice pictures


So this is easy and first root for X10!

Errors of X10Flash:

INFO: start
java.io.IOException: Unable to open channel, GetLastError=0
at com.sonyericsson.cs.usbflashnative.impl.USBFlashNa tiveImpl.openChannel(Native Method)

If you get this error you have added WRONG device ID. Maybe you have not only ONE in registry. Try finding another one!
If all don't work. Please install SEUS one time and this far SEUS wants you to connect XPERIA in flashmode.
After this is done you should find your Device ID! (Because SEUS found it and installed drivers! )



There is another Erro regarded to 32bit and 64bit Systems!
If you got this Error, please uninstall Java -> Reboot
Download Sun JRE 32bit -> install -> Reboot.

Now you should be fine.

Some things to know...

WARNING: If your phone starts rebooting, doing strange things, or gets stucked in the middle of firmware update or rooting process, check if the back of the phone or the battery is overheated.
I found on my phone, when internal battery temp is above 38ēC, the phone starts rebooting when there's a lot of network traffic or when the cpu is working hard (when it boots, when updating firmware or when installing a lot of applications in parallel). If you see this behaviour, first turn off your phone, take out the battery, and let it cool down. After a few minutes try again. Or, if you can not wait, put it in fron of an air conditioner and repeat the operation :P
(not joking, where I live there are 30-36ēC these days and my last root attempt required my car's air conditioner blowing up at 16ēC. After 7 tries all crashing, this last time the process went smoothly).

You can check battery temperature by launching Dialer application and typing: *#*#4636#*#* and then on the menu, tap on battery information.

Applications that aren't _absolutely_ required:
I have done a bit of cleaning in this last rom. So far everything is working fine, no problems with audio of any kind, freezing or strange behaviour. These are the applications I have removed from /system/app:
Code:
AndroidQuadrapop.apk
EManual.apk

Feel free to try for yourself, but before you do a 'rm', I would advise you to do a folder inside of system/app, and simply move all you don't want there. For example:
mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock2 /system
cd system/app
mkdir Temp
mv mediascape* Temp/

After you checked there aren't any problems, simply do rm -rf Temp.

P.S.: Mediascape is NOT required to correct audio routing between speaker & headphones. This problem was caused by differences on the kernel module that controls audio routing and the newer baseband. With last root version you shouldn't have any problems using Android's original Music app.

Regards!

First of all...THANK YOU GUYS. Secondly, if I am on a X10a should I skip step3.bat?

EDITED: Now that its been a few days, just wanted to edit this post and emphasize that everything is running great on my X10a. Never thought I'd see the day where this thing was rooted! Nicely done.

For X10a skip step 3 or exchange files with files from X10a Firmware

I update the first post later!
