This would not have been possible without the tools provided by aZuZu and the help provided by jerpelea!!!

THANK YOU GUYS!


[ Screenshots ]




[ Requirements ]
  1. any working ROM with recovery
    [best situation is to flash stock 2.1 se rom root it and install recovery using latest flashtool]
  2. flashtool
  3. FTF bundle posted below
  4. Recovery image posted below


[ Features ]
  1. Stock SE 2.3.3 ROM
  2. prerooted (superuser files pre-installed, busybox pre-installed)
  3. xRecovery-0.3 (GBready) recovery (all known issues related to recovery are fixed in this version)


[ Important Links Before u Begin ]
  1. Flashtool
  2. [FLASHTOOL GUIDE] HOW TO for n00bies


[ How To ]

*FOLLOW THE STEPS PRECISELY ELSE U WILL GET STUCK*
  1. download the ftf bundle & compressed recovery image from linnks below
  2. extract the contents of the recovery image to a folder on desktop
  3. u will get a folder with 4 files as shown below:
  4. connect device to PC and mount sdcard
  5. copy that extrated folder to /sdcard/xrecovery/backup/
  6. so final path to folder & files should look like:
    • /sdcard/xrecovery/backup/prerooted_X10i_3.0.1.G.0.75_fixed_rec/cache.img
    • /sdcard/xrecovery/backup/prerooted_X10i_3.0.1.G.0.75_fixed_rec/data.img
    • /sdcard/xrecovery/backup/prerooted_X10i_3.0.1.G.0.75_fixed_rec/nandroid.md5
    • /sdcard/xrecovery/backup/prerooted_X10i_3.0.1.G.0.75_fixed_rec/system.img
  7. once copying is finished unmount sdcard and disconnect cable
  8. reboot into recovery and restore this backup
  9. AFTER RESTORE IS DONE DO NOT REBOOT
  10. directly remove battery and wait for few minutes (since we dont have power off in recovery this is crude way to do it)
  11. now start flashtool and connect X10 in flash mode and flash the ftf bundle provided below
  12. after flashing is complete just restart device and enjoy prerooted X10 SE 2.3.3 GB!!!


[ Info ]
  • if u get adb push errors to /system then anantshri has a solution: check here
  • NO-KNOWN root exploit was used! all the info on how to do this is already there in the threads i had created earlier and of-course using some ingenuous thinking ... u can check my sig for the links to those threads...
  • files prepared from following FTF file posted in flashtool thread:
