    Nothings wrong with the current way,but why just having only 1 way to root the phone? I thought we are here to experiment instead of staying on the same old method the whole time..maybe there are easier ways to root, and if someone says that this method works,then it IS much easier to root the o4x hd.

    Well devving and modding can really only go so far with a locked bootloader. And the thing is that, no one is that crazy to try out other things without completely knowing what they're doing or what they're getting into. Yah we want to try other methods, but why risk your $500+ investment with only a 50/50 chance of working/not working, when you can use the other method with 100% chance to work?

    To get it to work I had unplugged the usb at boot and reconnected right away, seems to have done the trick.

    I have a p880g as well and i got mount error...

    I can't believe it, so this method works??? This should be made sticky in dev-section then I think...

    thanks for you feedback all...

    Good! A pity that the most O4x users aren't willing to try out new things...

    A question: I'm getting permission denied when the script tries to remount with r/w rights...I already tried to disconnect and connect the USB cable during the reboot, but without success...what am I missing?

    Try to root it with "Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v15".

    Here you can see how it works... Its in portuguese but you'll understand, I think...
    (select HD and full screen)

    Brazilian 10C has some bug that doesn't allow us to root. I have 10C Brazil, profyler has and we have the same error. We (Me, profyler and RuedasLocas) have already tryed 2 methods in this firmware, but all of them were without sucess.
