If this is true, the question is, if it is possible to flash a version TNBST_4_0A.1F.XXXXX onto my device and if so, how?

I'm not sure if this is relevant, but do you all have usb debugging enabled?

My turn to try :

XT230 - Android 2.3.6
Kernel : 2.6.38.6+ buildsrv@lxdex2 #1
Build number : 0A.1F.49
Flex : WE_Orange_France_v33_0803_FLEXTNBST
Baseband : 76XXU-USMEKOLYM-109806-8859
Software : TNBST_4_0A.1F.49RPSB

I got all the drivers and all.
Debugging is enable (however it seems irrelevant).

Bootloader menu is obtain with the power + vol down + cam combinaison, adb reboot-bootloader give a normal reboot (which is odd I agree).

However, when trying :
Code:
fastboot boot recovery.img
I get the :
Code:
<waiting for device>
and nothing happens as in slanche2 #418 post.

As I have a TNBST_4_0A.1F.XXXXX software version, it seems not to be linked with root-possibility as suggested in post #420.

However all of this give hope for a root possibility !

Good job everyone ! But still work to do !

Hi all
This is for Ubuntu users like me manual for root from davis15. I post all the message to me:
Quote:
davis15 :

First you should follow this tutorial to install adb and fastboot shell: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/08/insta...oid-tools.html
Once done download these files:http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...1&d=1356776196
I decompress in the personal folder (“/ home / tuusuario”), you copy the update.zip file to the root of your sd card.
You open a terminal, you’re going to the directory where you unzipped the files (“cd / home / tuusuario /”), the following commands and commandments, adb reboot-bootloader, this command will restart and your motorola os recovery menu appears, when this happens commandments this command in the terminal, fastboot boot recovery.img.
Os recovery menu appears with three options, you will move with the arrow keys and sound You select with the camera button, you choose the second option “Install zip from sd .. (second option) -> choose zip from sdc (seek the update.zip file) -> … choose … -> Yes – Install -> Reboot -> back “

Once you’ve rebooted and the phone will have rooteado, I hope you succeed, I would make a video. I’ve performed in ubuntu, but if you have another linux distribution is similar process in windows tambiéns and can do but I can help because I do not use, if anyone here is able and wants to make a tuto for that system and publish here to tell me.
I will try this tomorrow.

Special thanks and coder011 for his huge and great work!!!

Well, it is among the first thing I've done only after I was sure all the drivers are installed! Including fastboot ones... or whatever they are called...
thing is this method seems to work only on some builds/ versions...

i was applying a few of them at one time to save my time xd ] )
0. Copy update.zip to /sdcard/
1. You need to boot into fastboot (NOT RECOVERY, F A S T B O O T ). You can use:
a)
Code:
adb reboot-bootloader
or
b)turn off the phone, then hold POWER+VOL UP+VOL DOWN for 5-10 sec.
2. Now you need to use fastboot. use:
Code:
fastboot boot recovery.img
3.Now CWM TOUCH will boot. There is small problem, it doesn't look as it should, some options are somewhere else etc.
But it works! In normal CWM Recovery i was unable to choose any option, but there everything "works" And you should use
keys on your phone ( POWER to execute, vol. keys to move ), not screen to choose things ( it crashed once when i was using screen )
4. Install zip from sd..(second option)-->choose zip from sdc..)--> ...choose...--> Yes - Install --> Reboot --> back

For commands in [.code] marker you need to use cmd. I hope it will work for you guys You are doing everything on your own so if something dont work its not my fault.
If you want to repost it somewhere, please, just write who invented it You should also thanks coder011 becourse he extracted the recovery.img from defy mini which was very helpful
Enjoy
It really works!! Thanks a lot, man! I've been following this thread for some months, and now I registered in this forum just to thank leos0 and to say that it really works.

For all the other n00bs (like me), this is exactly what I've done (just more step-by-step instructions to the same things leos0 described):

1. Downloaded the zip file that was attached to the post quoted above ("root_xt320.zip").

2. Extracted the "update.zip" file into the phone's SDcard folder (I did this by connecting the phone to the pc in the "mass storage mode".

3. Extracted all the other files from the "update.zip" file into a folder on my pc.

4. Connected the phone to the pc. NOT in the mass storage mode. Actually, I turned the USB debugging ON (settings -> applications -> development -> USB debugging), but I don't know if this makes any difference whatsoever.

5. Opened the command line (I'm using Windows Vista, btw): start menu -> cmd.exe.

6. In the command line, went to the folder where the previously extracted file adb.exe was.

7. typed adb reboot-bootloader

Note: I'm pretty sure the steps 5, 6 and 7 can be substituted by booting the phone with the VOL+ and VOL- buttons pressed, as leos0 described (I've already done that), so it's a matter of choice.

8. The phone booted in the fastboot mode (in the screen there was a menu for me to choose between recovery mode, reboot system and something else. I DIDN'T CHOOSE ANY OF THOSE OPTIONS, since I was already in the fastboot mode.

9. Next, I typed fastboot boot recovery.img (in the cmd, of course. NOT in the phone).

10. The phone entered this weird-looking menu just like leos0 described. Using the VOL+ and VOL- buttons to navigate and POWER to choose, I selected the second option ("Install zip from sd").

11. In the next screen, I navigated down untill I reached the "update.zip" file that was previously extracted to the sdcard folder. Pressed POWER button to select it. Then I selected "Yes - install".

12. Some installation screens appeared. After that, something else appeared, and this was not described by leos0: it was kind of a confirmation screen, but since the menu looked weird and too zoomed in, I couldn't read it properly. Anyway, it was something related to "fixing the root", or something... I had 2 options: "NO" and "YES, FIX ROOT".

13. Fearing for my life, I chose "YES, FIX ROOT", and then it said the procedure was done. I went back in the menu, and chose to reboot the phone.

14. It didn't actually reboot, though. It just turned off. I turned it on again (still connected to the pc, but I'm pretty sure that's not necessary), installed the Root Checker app from the PlayStore and BAM! I was roooot!

My phone details:

Model: XT320
Android version: 2.3.6
Kernel version: 2.6.38.6+ buildsrv@Ixdex2 #1
Build number: 07.1F.0F
Flex version: LATAM_Claro_Brazil_v19_0312_FLEXTNBST
Software version: TNBST_4_07.1F.0FRPS

Thanks for everybody that kept this thread going for so long, and with so little hope. And thanks for leos0 for making my phone usefull again!

Good job everyone ! But still work to do !
It's possible that there's a subset of TNBST_4_0A.1F.XXXXX versions that are unrootable. The sample size for my assumption is far from sufficient and it's still possible that it's a statistical irregularity.

-----------
I indeed made sure that USB debugging was enabled. If it wasn't that first adb command wouldn't even reboot the phone, would it?

For what it's worth, it would be incredible helpful if everybody who tries to root their phone will post exactly what software version their phone has and what button-combo takes the phone into FASTBOOT mode.

Question How to uninstall bloatware and so...

As I posted earlier today, I got root! Yay! So I install Titanium Backup, etc., etc.... Problem is: I don't seem to be able to uninstall anything, which was exactly why I wanted to root my TX320 in the first place...

In Titanium Backup, as well as in App2SD, when I try to uninstall an app, it says "Failed to locate the apk file"

Any ideas of what's going on and how to solve it?

Thanks!
