Hey guys I read this on Xperia Play forums...

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1312859

Has anyone tried it on stock x10 gingerbread firmware?

Its basically a new exploit (zergRush) by the Revolutionary Team...

Can anyone test it? (My x10 is still in service center :p )

Hi doom,

Sometimes other fw dont match on other countries so i guess this is very usefull to others.

And im talking about radio signal (network).

network is related to baseband and as far as i know we only have one provided by SE. 71

Baseband and firmware i guess. Or maybe i am wrong. But On my experience ive tried using other fw and my signal was low, change back to fw of my country and viola got a full bar on my network. ( tested on the same spot ). Or maybe just a lucky glitch.

    just curious but what difference is this method from the guide/method currently used?

    simple... one click root!!!


    this way is using cmd the other way is using flash tool?!

    Sent from my X10 using XDA App


    it works and is now implemented in FlashTool :)

    UPDATE

    added v4 of toolkit, with newest zergRush binary (21 Nov 2011) and few corrections/additions to script

    the script will now:
    1. check/correct temporary directory
    2. verify if there is adequate free space on /system, if enough free space is not found >6MB then the script will delete Google Maps (Maps.apk) [thanks to ChainFire for the tip in MobileODIN ;) ], u can later install latest Google Maps from Market...

    this toolkit should now work on ZTE Warp...

    this may not work on the newest firmwares released by device vendors...


    if ur device is already rooted dont bother with this... if the devices is not yet rooted please try it out and kindly report if it worked for ur device...

    Works on SGS2 conformed by a former x10 user
    He was looking to root his SGS2 and was unable coz he didn't like the flashing kernels in CF-ROOT so this helped him

    cool :)
