I want to install cm 7 or better 10 on my phone. I know cm 10 requires that the bootloader is unlocked, which it is not.
It has turned out to be a very difficult task and I have not succeeded.
Another user on this forum has made a big effort to get cm on my phone. That is why I know how to root the phone and set usb debugging and allow other software sources.
I have got this software at hand
s1tool, gingerdx v0.31, X8_E15_2.1.1.C.0.0_generic.ftf, cwm.
Furthermore I have been using recoverx from google play.
Nothing worked. Gingerdx never starts, I have tried to let the phone boot for 20 minutes several times.
I also tried the paid wotanserver dot com option in order to get the phone's bootloader unlocked. That also failed, because when I ran the wontanserver software on a windows 7 hp computer, I could not login to wotanserver and execute the bootloader unlocking. Wotanserver could not provide further instructions, and I got a refund.
I am informed about the 11w36 issue, that is why I have not tried to unlock the bootloader using s1tool. If there if new information about how to unlock the bootloader I would very much like to get it?
If you know a working 10usd paid option to unlock the bootloader, please tell me?
I have also in parts read posts about testpoints to unlock the bootloader, but no post has come to a conclusion whether it can be done?
Failing can be related to me not installing correctly or there is some error about the phone.
