Got no idea right now... but you may do us a favor to find the Gen10 keys and extract firmware files first.

Assuming you got a Gen10 device and MicroSD card inserted.
From your ADB console could you please type the following:

dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0 of=/mnt/sdcard/first-64k.bin bs=512 count=128

Please post the resulting file here and i'll try to extract the keys for Gen10 and update the well known aos-tools.

I had a discussion there with trevd a few weeks ago

Thanks a lot in advance!!!

Best regards,

+1. I have just ordered it on Amazon (arriving late this week) but I see there is no dedicated session here in XDA for modding. Maybe it is early time... Hope to get possibility for root soon

Mmmmh... that's worse.
So they restricted the block devices for user access.
Guess we'll need a temporary root first.

We all used the 1 and 2 binaries for Gen9 without any research.
These had been developed by Paul O'Brien and AFAIK we have no further details about the procedure.
I guess he's using a bug in the kernel or similar to inject some code and get root permission.
See original thread again:
http://www.modaco.com/topic/347305-a...-root-phase-1/

This would be the way for Gen10 then as well.
Did anyone try if it works for Gen10?
Might be little risky though, because we got no background of what the binaries do exactely.

Anyway if we got temporary root first we could read first blocks form eMMC.
Then it would be easier to examine the parts of bootcode and look for similarites with Gen9.

As a second step we would need a procedure to flash unofficial SDE to the device.
Would give us the same comfort as on the Gen9 then.

I'll do a little research about Paul's rooting method, maybe it could be used for Gen10 without any mod.
If anyone got some insights on this, feel free to post it here

Regards,

That's awesome.
So basically Paul's method works for the Gen10 as well.

O.K., very nice!
So now you got a file first-64k.bin on your Micro-SD right?
Copy the file to your Host PC... by using adb or take out the card.
Zip that file and post it here.
I'll then try to extract the key.
If the key structure is similar to Gen9, then maybe tomorrow i'll try to tweak aos-tools to handle Gen10 files.
We could get some more insights then...

O.K., so there's some side effect.
Should be hopefully gone after reboot...
Please report!

Good luck!

Let's go for Gen10

Glad to hear that.
So there's some side effect. Remember the sound and restart issues on Gen9 wiht the root hack.
I guess it's similar here, but little different indeed

Cheers,
