Introduction
Here's a one-click root method for the Oppo Find 5. You can find source here: https://code.google.com/p/android-casual/source/browse/#svn/trunk/GUI/src/SCRIPTS

The way this works is it will reboot your device into fastboot, boot a kernel, inject root and SuperSU(available on Android Market), set permissions, test itself and let you know if it passed or failed.

CASUAL also provides an unroot option to remove root permissions. This can also be done from within SuperSu.


Instructions
  • Open CASUAL with JAVA. Do you have Java?
  • Select which script you want (root or recovery_
  • Click the do-it button


All scripts in CASUAL are automated. Simply click the button and it will "do it". If you are a windows user, please ensure you are using proper drivers.

Thanks to Justin Case for whippin' up a unsecure kernel before I could do it.

About CASUAL
CASUAL stands for Cross-platform ADB Scripting, Univeral Android Loader. CASUAL jar files are a wrapper for the CASUAL scripting language. CASUAL allows rapid and accurate deployment of hacks and exploits. CASUAL allows for automatic updating of its scripts via pushes to the SVN server at android-casual.googlecode.com. While I expect no problems at all, if at any time a serious problem is detected with the script, i can flip a kill switch to shut CASUAL downand you will be brought to a support page.... most likely here. This is intended to add a level of security so that you know this will be safe.

Could you please confirm it will work in any Oppo Find 5? Or only in Oppo Find 5 with international firmware?

I've read you have Chinese version. Is that right? If so, what about Gapps? Does them run with no problem?

thanks for your hard work :)

but i have a problem:
I startet ubuntu from a CD and installed the libusb.
But there is no way the "Hack Pack" could recognize the x909.

USB-Debugging is on.

I also tried it in windows. I installed the adb driver for my x909 but the "Hack Pack" cannot recognize it either.

Do know where there could be a failure?

Thanks

Any plans for it's own forum?

BTW. How much did you spend on this thing, and from where? I'd like to get one as well... (If they release the sources, that is.)

In China, 2998 and 3298 yuans. Add reseller comission, sending, taxes....
Anyway, there will be an international version comercialized by Oppo in some weeks (prize unknown right now)

There may be an update which you need. I applied a manual update last week which made ADB work properly with all previous versions of ADB. You also need drivers. I don't know which ones yet.

think I'm going to wait for the Int'l launch before getting it... probably no warranty for those chinese versions bought on ebay(and ebay/chinese resellers - >$600... oppousa.com website says $500)

might want to put th emodel number (x909), helps for searching

@those who have the device, how is it? most youtube videos/reviews have the beta version of the phone, or are just walking advertisements, wondering how good the final retail version is

EDIT: some (full fledged) reviews that I can find

http://www.xda-developers.com/android/oppo-find-5-unboxed-the-xda-way-xda-developer-tv/

maybe xda will support it...

I'm hunting at oppo's chinese forums... apparently for their previous phones, they have an active community for updates / new ROMs(albeit mostly chinese/non-english speaking)

for me, I want a camera that rivals my Amaze 4G's

Thanks for your response.

Do you mean an update for the phone? Where did you get it? :)

Or an update for the computer? The installation of ubuntu is completly fresh. I just added the libusb and java to run the "Hack Pack".

Did ubuntu immediately recognize your Oppo Find 5 with only libusb installed additionally? Or what software do i need furthermore?

I would like to use the Gapps but if i install the play store from an apk, it just force closes all the time. (like every other gapp)

    If anyone on Windows is having problems... i have a potential solution. please try this.


    Download this file: http://d-h.st/em7
    rename "adbx-1031-stripped-windows.exe" to "adb.exe"
    open the CASUAL jar file with WinZip or equivalent.
    navigate to CASUAL/resources/ADB in the jar.
    Replace adb.exe with the downloaded "adb.exe"
    run CASUAL again.

    let me know if this works or not.

    International firmware released:
    http://www.oppoforums.com/threads/find-5-beta-firmware-x909en_13_130206.563/#post-10744

    I suppose, CASUAL also works with it, right?
