Default Possible Root Thanks to @Andrew Andrax

"Hi.

I am relatively new to xda. I am not allowed to post replies. I also have the yolo phone and been looking for a way to root it since it has 32 bit architecture (x86). Below is a method that I havent tried coz it is for netbooks running android but since the phone has a similar architecture i assume it will work.

Other links are in the post from the link above. I would also appreciate it if you could post it in the forum. By the way, I would also appreciate it if you could tell me how i can be able to start replying to comments.

Kind regards, Andrew.

P.S: The above post to be done requires a linux environment such as a linux O.S like Ubuntu and the likes or installing Cygwin if you have Windows. But make sure that you install the Android SDK which has ADB."

Guys lets try this one out and give feedback. I am trying it out and will post back with the details!!!

Hi, i tried the method u put in the 2nd post to root my YOLO phone n it will not execute the 'psneuter' file it just brings an error.

i think that method does not apply to this phone.

i tried copying the method from MO,DA,CO on how to root the Orange San Diego which uses a similar chipset it didn't work, ditto with the RAZR I method.

I want to try the rooting method for the ASUS Fonepad as i feel it can work as it uses the same exact chipset as the YOLO.

Angry Rooted rooted rooted..

Read This Before you begin:
" If you brick / damage / change your device after root you can NOT revert back to Stock rom as there is no Custom Recovery has been ported and nor will be ported !!( device has been obsolated "
So think Twice Before you Root

Finally i found a way to root intel yolo aka xolo x500 or ANY OTHER x86 device..

it's exploit> Cydia Impactor..

Downloads
Root Tool
http://www.cydiaimpactor.com/
Drivers
http://software.intel.com/en-us/arti...ice-usb-driver

Method.
  1. Install Drivers..
  2. On your Phone Turn on Usb Debugging mode . (Settings>Advanced>Usb debugging )
  3. Extract Impactor.zip
  4. Run Impactor.exe
    **BACK UP YOUR ROM DUMP **
    Now copy and Paste this code in Impactor. ( See the Attachment..)

    Code:
    dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p8 of=/mnt/sdcard_ext/system.img
    This will generate System.img file of about 768MB in your /mnt/sdcard_ext ( I.e your Memory Card ..)
    Copy it to you PC or somewhere this might come in Handy someday..
    However i do NOT know anyway to flash this image on Bricked device !!
  5. Select to drop su.
  6. DOne..

The rest you have to do is just install your favorite super user manager,
Personally i use supersu..

If you have any problems,
SHOOT ME MAILS,
I DON'T FREQUENTLY LOG ON TO XDA / MODACO etc..
HERE IS MY MAIL ID:
cyberpunk.pc@gmail.com


A Thing or Two you might wanna know,
1: This is root exploit,
So if you delete superuser.apk and su binary, NO OEM can tell that your device was rooted or not..

2: THIS IS AN X86 device not ARM,
i.e.:
a> Some root tools which uses arm binaries wont work on device.
b>Filesystem structure is bit different on X86 than ARM , so THINK TWICE before you screw up anything.
c> If you are Linux user then NEVER rely on useless apks,
Old fashion way of Terminal is best..
DO NOT USE FOLLOWING SOFTWARE..
CHAINFIRE 3D and any other Chainfire applications .. (They are build for ARM devices.)
Recovery Softwares .. ( There are NO CWM or even STOCK rom available for this device ..)
This software are SURE to BRICK YOUR DEVICE...

.

I hope you enjoy my post..

Question Need APK

Although Xolo x500/ Intel Yolo are clones, the stock roms are different ,
Especially /system/app ..

In Xolo phones, Intel Wireless Display application is not provided, but YOLO does..

Can anybody upload that APK ?
Please upload with ODEX file if it exists.
