mopgawka - Did you get the correct mtdblock number. The file would set the system dir as r/w to enable you. The mtdblock number is the number directly after the text mtdblock, in the image below it is 0.

Another question was there an error after the "Getting ROOT rights" text? This was the bit that caused me the most issues.

x10man - Yes it is just basically a batch file. If you want to port to linux then go ahead :)

how did you root your phone? I also don't have a script called "rootsh". also you can check if you are rooted with "id". many ppl like me are just rooted after entering the shell :)
also it's better to use "su" when calling commands that have to be done by root: "su - -c 'mount xyz' "

also don't forget the "*" if you check for keyboard inputs :) (there are people that may miss the key they wanted to push .D)

good luck.

Finnaly! Thank you! Would love to see cwm being imported in the slades kernel, that way we never have to deal with broken files!

Yeah I just noticed that i left rootsh in there. Was just something I was playing with.

One thing I hate is Permission Denied error's with adb... Oh fun.

In linux we used to set the mount point to a variable and then issuing the r/w command. I don't know how you can do this trick in windows.

Code:
mtd=mount | grep system | awk '{print $1}'
echo "Mounting /system rw"
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 $mtd /system

The question about the mount point isnt in the newer version. It just assumes that the system mtdblock is 0.

If it causes a problem in the future I may change it back to selecting the mtdblock number but from all the times I have tried the mtdblock on the x10 mini pro has always been 0.

In windows the answer is just saved as a variable that you assign to the question.

I tried to fix permissions but it's been doing that for almost an hour now... Is that normal, to take that long? Should I remove the battery?

EDIT: Forget it, after looong time waiting, it's finished :)

EDIT 2: It erased all my preferences! Is that supposed to happen?

    I have never had to fix permissions myself so I don't know the process it uses. You could try in the CWM thread where they should be able to help you. Link is http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1106146

    Sorry

    quangnhut123 - I don't have that version of CWM and the CWM thread only has r3. If you have r5 then could you give me the files please and will update it.
