7) Reboot the phone

8) Got root?

Rather yes than no. But in the worst case you will need to reflash a firmware. Latest public available version is XXLD8 (April), but yours I8160NELE1 is a bit newer (May).

What is your kernel version? (see in Settings -> About phone)
For XXLD8 firmware it's:
Code:
2.6.35.7-I8160XXLD8-CL1100997

Bocko92, definetly yes. It will work.

casidus, xzero2, who knows... Eventually, it can't hardbrick your phone. But in case of any issues, the only available firmware to rollback is I8160XXLD8. If your phone is sim-locked, i don't know what will happen when you flash a non-carrier firmware on it.

upd: A custom flash counter is there:

Hi,

I tried this way to make root my i8160, and runs ok!!
I have :
PDA I8160BGLE2
CSC I8160XECLE2

From Spain

My question is:
I tried to overlock the cpu using SetCPU, but I can't increase the speed more tha 800 MHZ
Anyone knows how I can increase up to 1Ghz?

Thanks

Tried it, got stuck in a boot loop. Any suggestions?

EDIT:

Ok, so managed to boot up with the custom kernal, but recovery mode won't find the update_su.zip file on the sd card.

Its probably "locked". We need a modified kernel that "unlock" higher frequencies. Maybe antsm is capable of doing it, if he buy this phone.
