XOLO X1000 was believed to be root protected. Not anymore, follow the below steps to get it rooted.
As far as i know its the only rooting method available, so if anyone has knowledge of other rooting method pls share as it might help in further development.
Here is a screenshot from X1000-

Help!!!

Hey, I have a small problem.. I used a root app called Soft Keyz and now both my notification bar and soft keys are missing.. I did a little research and realized that it has to do with a borked systemui.apk. So could you please give me your systemui.apk by any chance? I'm kinda screwed here without the soft keys.. Appreciate if you could get back to me soon.. Thanks :)

Yup sure.
Im uploading both systemUI.apk and systemUi.odex. You might need to replace both. And remember to correct permissions.

Hey, how do you unroot? (As it is the Xolo Customer Care Sucks, so the warranty is really important..)

Only method known yet is to flash stock firmware from here.

And Xolo wont help if we have a software issue. Software is supplied by intel and xolo supplies it. Colo engineers also seem to be novice.
I luckily had an opportunity to meet their software manager. I asked him if he could provide a unlocked bootloader, he was unaware of what a bootloader is. They only distrubute OTA Updates.

Yeah, I had a similar experience about their engineers. They mentioned to me too, that the Bootloader is not in their hands.. Well, that's what happens when you try a budget company. All we can hope for is updates, now..

I was all set to buy the Galaxy Grand Quattro but i thought I'd try Xolo, for the Processor and the beautiful screen.. Guess I should've stuck to my instincts :p

Anyway, thanks for the files.. Everything's back to normal now.. Cheers.. :D

How did that happen?

Follow this to flash.

Hey, did you confirm that this technique works?

---------- Post added at 11:55 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:28 PM ----------

Guys! Now that we finally rooted the phone, let's try doing the one thing that can make our devices fulfill their worth.. That is finding a way to run windows 7 or Windows 8 on the phone. I'm not talking about wp7 or wp8 but the actual windows.. The phone has an x86 processot. So why can't this be done?! 2Ghz and 1GB ought to be enough for a smooth experience.. Guys, please try to work on this..

IT doesnt seem fake either

Hey, did you confirm that this technique works?

@shawnkenneth No i didnt. But it works acc to users of some other forum. I dont have the link now, will post as soon as i find it.

Best of Luck :D

Edit:- The root procedure they posted was fake. And a comment said it worked. So im a bit suspicious about it. I would recommend you to do some research and go ahead.
And ill be mostly free by 1st dec. So will check it out.

Edit:-U can download the rom and check if its correct

Well, I downloaded the ROM and all I found was an .nbo file.. I don't think it's a ROM (They're mostly zip files right?) Tell me if it's usable or not, when you're free of course..

Thats shocking!! Install this. What does it say?

Edit: Supersu doesnt work for many phones, dont rely on that! Use Super user. BusyBox works fine on mine. Just check if you haven't set Automatic response=Deny in Super user->settings->security.

Edit: Busybox screenshot.
