[ How To ]

*FOLLOW THE STEPS PRECISELY ELSE U WILL GET STUCK*

  1. download the ftf bundle & compressed recovery image from linnks below
  2. extract the contents of the recovery image to a folder on desktop
  3. u will get a folder with 4 files as shown below:
    folderconents2.jpg
  4. connect device to PC and mount sdcard
  5. copy that extrated folder to /sdcard/xrecovery/backup/
  6. so final path to folder & files should look like:
    • /sdcard/xrecovery/backup/prerooted_X10i_3.0.1.G.0.75_fixed_rec/cache.img
    • /sdcard/xrecovery/backup/prerooted_X10i_3.0.1.G.0.75_fixed_rec/data.img
    • /sdcard/xrecovery/backup/prerooted_X10i_3.0.1.G.0.75_fixed_rec/nandroid.md5
    • /sdcard/xrecovery/backup/prerooted_X10i_3.0.1.G.0.75_fixed_rec/system.img
  7. once copying is finished unmount sdcard and disconnect cable
  8. reboot into recovery and restore this backup
  9. AFTER RESTORE IS DONE DO NOT REBOOT
  10. directly remove battery and wait for few minutes (since we dont have power off in recovery this is crude way to do it)
  11. now start flashtool and connect X10 in flash mode and flash the ftf bundle provided below
  12. after flashing is complete just restart device and enjoy prerooted X10 SE 2.3.3 GB!!!

Just download the latest flashtool, connect your phone and press root , after that your phone will restart then ask root perms from flashtool again and install xrecovery through flashtool again.

Thats all good luck

    FT/xRec Flashable GB Update

    Here we go guys,

    1. Download the Gingerbread zip here: X10i_Official_GB_Rooted_006.zip
    2. Put it on your SD Card, boot into recovery, and flash it.
    4. DO NOT REBOOT FROM RECOVERY, pull your battery out
    5. Fire up FlashTool and flash this: X10i_3.0.1.G.0.75_Baseband and Kernel Update.ftf
    6. Turn your rooted, zipaligned, and busyboxed Gingerbread X10 on.

    NOTICE: I've only done very preliminary testing on this, and don't know what bugs you'll run into, but I can say that the permissions are all set (manually AND by script at install-time) and it's much smoother than the original release.

    Have fun
