I got a new x10 from Best Buy Mobile as a loaner phone, running 1.6 on AT&T fresh out of the box. followed the ATT thread to go to 2.1 using flash tool.
I have tried nearly everything to root it, flash tool tells me phone should be rooted after reboot, it isnt, X10root.apk fails, superoneclick fails (maybe adb related & not sure why.. had adb path set up properly and shows device id, but says protocol error?), z4root doesnt even get temp root.

Im on generic 2.1 x10a , this wall all done on my win 7 64 bit laptop. I will try via adb on my computer at work running win xp later today, but the root .apks should have rooted, I dont understand why.

I will post a log for you guys to check out, Im not a n00b, but not an expert either.

I may have the phone for a week or a month, while my other LCD is repaired.
Thanks everyone!

Go for root !

I just want to flash a gingerbread ROM of course, but I will need xrecovery right? which isnt installing without root.

Unless its possible for me to flash a new rooted rom without xrecovery, I uppose that will work although it might be dangerous.

I'll post back as soon as I can.

use the latest version of superoneclick and make sure you have USB debugging enabled


if you have rooted with flash tool you do not need to do anything else it will be rooted you dont need x10root or other one click apk apps as flash tool rooted your phone

test it with a tool that requires root such as adfree or terminal emulator

i already tried the newest SOC, no dice.

ill try the older one too.

I think it may have to do with the drivers, it looks like regular drivers dont work, Im installing the SE developer ones.

but that doesnt really explain why z4root didnt work, and universal androot fails too.

thanks guys. this is killing me.

what firmware are you using on your phone(under about phone) !?

and try the 1.5.5 version make sure when you run it you have USB debugging enabled! (under settings /applications/development ) you may also want to make sure you have UNKNOWN SOURCES checked!


z4 and universal will no longer work after the first version of 2.1! so dont bother with those!

you could also try the root tool that comes with the lastest flashtool

make sure when you root you choose 'connect phone' and not mount for usb storage mode!

2.1-update 1
build 2.1.a.0.435
2.6.29 [email protected] #1
x10a

this is beginning to p1ss me off, I think it must be a driver/adb issue, i did the fix for 64 bit, and now Im on xp and still cant connect to daemon when i say adb devices in cmd. I have the latests drivers, maybe i need to install older ones, maybe these have security?

also what are the signfiles.bat ,etc on my sdcard, they look SE signing tools , like they verify signature, etc.

also tried downloading the new rooting method for 2.1, rootme.tar, but server is unavailable.

yahhhhh! this is nuts!

Best way to root, install Xrecovery and JIT enable your phone is via Flash Tool. I'm on AT&T too, and found it rather simple.

Follow the guide found here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1012380

Make sure you have installed java on your computer.
Also, do not mount your SD card. While your phone is on, connect your phone via usb and hit root once your phone is recognized.

I'm not sure if this is necessary for rooting but for flashing purposes you need to connect your phone via pc companion or SEUS. Check to see if you have the latest firmware and set your phone up to flash new firmware. The computer will install flash drivers onto your computer. You don't have to install the latest AT&T firmware if there is one. You just want to have those flash drivers on your PC.

Hope this helps!
