Finally i found a way to root intel yolo aka xolo x500 or ANY OTHER x86 device..
it's exploit> Cydia Impactor
- Install Drivers..
- On your Phone Turn on Usb Debugging mode . (Settings>Advanced>Usb debugging )
- Extract Impactor.zip
- Run Impactor.exe
**BACK UP YOUR ROM DUMP **
Now copy and Paste this code in Impactor. ( See the Attachment..)
This will generate System.img file of about 768MB in your /mnt/sdcard_ext ( I.e your Memory Card ..)
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p8 of=/mnt/sdcard_ext/system.img
Copy it to you PC or somewhere this might come in Handy someday..
- Select to drop su.
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:
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,
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..
