Hello awesome XDA community?
I was hoping to find info on upgrading this model to Oreo and information on getting root access also?
Apologies if this is the wrong area to post this in.



Thank you ...

The only thing keeping me from buying this phone is first the price and second the fact that it will never get an update. Battery life looks really good.

Right now, I am working on getting TWRP to install and porting Android N to the X1.
Next, I will then work on getting TWRP to run on the X2 and then try to port oreo.

I am using my X2 as my daily driver so I can't mess it up yet.

Since the X2 is the only phone with a nose, developing out software for the VOC sensor is also something I am exploring.

Yes, I am liking this phone. On the whole, I am very happy with it

What's great: I finally have a phone with a battery that does not run out. I average 30 to 40 percent battery drain in my daily use. Whereas for my old phone...I'd have to charge it after 8 hours of regular use. It's built like a brick - really solid construction. Supposedly waterproof but I have not tested that. 6G of memory and 128 G of storage. I can load a ton of apps on there and open a lot of them. 2 sims. It works on T-mobile in the US but it works on damn near every band in the world so I can use it when I travel. Reception is decent. Bluetooth behaves with all my peripherals. You can record 4k video using the Opencamera app. It has an FM radio you can use with headphones. The VOC sensor works.

What sucks: They made the back out of glass. I am afraid that if I drop it it will crack. So I covered mine with heavy sign vinyl to protect it. Audio volume is a bit low through the audio jack. The dual lense camera is kind of gimicky and the default app is not that great. It gives the background a kind of dreamy look...but that feature in the default camera app is a little hard to use.

I'm thinking of buying this phone for use in Canada on the Telus network and for world travel/work. It will be replacing my HTC one M9. I need something water prof that is reliable and will connect most places world wide. Also need a good camera and a good GPS and i love the floating cover. Dose anyone know if the model from chinavision includes the floating cover? Also are there any issues with the phone to consider before buying?

How secure is the floating case? is it likely to fall off if dropped from a boat?

Thanks a lot. I so wanted to get this phone but I need an above average to pretty good camera and good GPS for work. I may still get it if the price goes down a little.

Getting this phone on Monday. I played around with the 64 GB version and I really like it.

Surprised there is not more interest in it. It has to be one of the best (if not the best) rugged phones out there.
And having some extra sensors and a big battery is really a plus in the field.

reading up on installing TWRP and Magisk on this phone, but not having much luck so far.

They have MIL-STD-810G , so not sure why this would crack? Wouldn't that mean that certification would be worthless?

Just to be sure, what kind of heavy sign vinyl did you protect it with?

I was going for this phone to prevent to get additional protection, but now you have me worried.

I have read of one or two back glass screens cracking, I've also read that as per AGM the phone is still waterproof and dust proof with the back panel cracked. I think the mil spec is still good for the operation and gust of the phone just not the ascetic rear panel glass. I will be putting a layer of clear vinyl tape on my rear panel to help prevent a crack
