Step 2: Enable Unknown Sources & USB debugging in Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Unknown Sources & Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB Debugging
Step 3: Power down device.
Step 4: In FlashTool select aZuZu_Kernel_DownGrade or use this one with FlashTool you already have >>> Kernel downgrade <<<

This method this will not wipe ur existing data.

How to check do you have all needed drivers?

1. Check is phone visible in FlashTool after upgrade and before root process.
2. In command prompt type command adb devices
If response is:
List of devices attached

and not :
List of devices attached
device ?????????????????????
Then you need to upgrade drivers.


Drivers UpGrade

Plug phone and in Control Panel / System / Device Manager remove semc drivers. UnPlug / RePlug phone it will start search for new drivers if you have follow first red typed text it should find new drivers and install them. And phone should be visible with FlashTool.


+10000000 to DooMLoRD for rewritting tutorial. Dude your tutorials rulz! :D :D

OR

Watch on youtube >>>
<<< +100000000 silveraero. Good work!

FOR INSTALLING RECOVERY

Mine with hybrid xRecovery --> FlashTool 0.2.9.1 with Z xRecovery 0.3-GBReady ( Thanks Z ) & updated X10 drivers
OR
DooMLoRD's pure patched --> FlashTool_0.2.9.1-GBready_root_xRec

Watch on youtube >>>
<<< +100000000 silveraero. Good work!

OR

Also you can follow all this in picture & video version by DooMLoRD.

Another +10000000 to DooMLoRD. Thanks dude!

LAST WARNING FOR ALL PEOPLE --- DO NOT USE OPTIMIZE FUNCTION IN FLASHTOOL AFTER UPGRADE. BECOUSE OPTIMIZE FUNCTION USES PRE-BUILD BUILD.PROP FILE FROM ANDROID 2.1 AND IT WILL BREAK YOUR OS BOOTING. BUT IF YOU HAVE INSTALL XRECOVERY AND THEN DONE OPTIMIZE U CAN TRY USE THIS >> FlashTool_Optimize_FiX_xRecovery << OR un-tested method using batch script >> FlashTool_Optimize_FiX_Manual <<.

So this method needs few more test so any good soul for testing here is method..

Tools needed:

1. FlashTool
2. Kernel DownGrade
3. Kernel UpGrade

Step 1. Flash -- Kernel downgrade ... [ Leave FlashTool running]
Step 2. Wait till you see any info in FlashTool, then click root.
After root reboot is done, enter flash mode. and
Step 3. Flash -- Kernel upgrade. Power on your phone and phone will be rooted.

Enjoy!

P.S.
If you can't enter in flash mode after reboot use DooMLoRD method called "pull out batery" :D :D :D
HAHA!!!
Nice work dude!

it works!

and looking at the files posted by aZuZu i can tell u that this will work on ALL BRANDED/GENERIC/REGIONAL 2.3.3 GB FWs... provided that the kernel.sin file remains same (which it will for all 3.0.1.G.0.75 FW)...

but the steps are not correct ;)

u need to do this:

FOR ROOTING

  1. make sure u are on stock 2.3.3 FW
  2. enable Unknown Sources & USB debugging in Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Unknown Sources & Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB Debugging
  3. power down device
  4. Flash -- Kernel downgrade ... [ Leave FlashTool running] --
  5. remove usb cable
  6. Power on device
  7. immediately connect usb cable
  8. Wait till you see any info in FlashTool, then click root.
  9. After root reboot is done
  10. pull out battery and wait for few mins
  11. enter flash mode. and
  12. Flash -- Kernel upgrade.
  13. Power on your phone and phone will be rooted.

@aZuZu
great work aZuZu

now u can remove the [REQUEST] & [TESTING] tags ;)

Hi everybody!
First of all thanks for the big effort :)

Can anyone please tell me if once this root procedure has been successfully completed it will be now possible to install xRecovery 0.3 as usual (the same of 2.1)?

Many thanks! :)

will come in handy when uk generic rolls out.

Apparently each regions frimware is optimised for that particular region.
uk generic is already out mate, i flashed 10 mins ago


SO IS THIS METHOD CONFIRMED WORKING THEN? ALSO KERNEL UPGRADE PACKAGE IS A ZIP FILE, CAN I JUST RENAME TO FTF? WILL THAT WORK?

POSTED A MODIFIED FLASHTOOL PACKAGE FOR EASY RECOVERY INSTALLATION

[How-To] Rooting & Installing Recovery on X10 Official SE GB [Picture Guide]



FOLLOWING IS OLD INFO! NO LONGER NEEDED



be sure that u are using rooted stock FW... if u dont know how then read this: FOR ROOTING




FOR INSTALLING RECOVERY

how to install recovery based on this:

u can either wait for Flashtool to be updated OR do the following:

  1. download xRecovery-0.3_GBready.zip from z's thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=859571

  2. [OPTIONAL] if u dont have ADB then u can download minimal adb from: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=13430042&postcount=25

  3. extract the GBready xRecovery to c:\

  4. run the following to push the recovery files to temporary directory (/data/local/tmp/)

    Code:
    adb push c:\xRecovery-0.3_GBready\system\bin\chargemon /data/local/tmp/.
    
    adb push c:\xRecovery-0.3_GBready\system\bin\charger /data/local/tmp/.
    
    adb push c:\xRecovery-0.3_GBready\system\xbin\sh /data/local/tmp/.
    
    adb push c:\xRecovery-0.3_GBready\system\xbin\xrecovery.tar /data/local/tmp/.
  5. remount /system using adb shell (keep screen active/unlocked to accept/allow the Superuser request)

    Code:
    adb shell
    su
    busybox mount -o remount,rw /system
  6. now copy the files to correct location & correct the permissions (within the adb shell from above step)

    Code:
    cp /data/local/tmp/chargemon /system/bin/.
    cp /data/local/tmp/charger /system/bin/.
    cp /data/local/tmp/sh /system/xbin/.
    cp /data/local/tmp/xrecovery.tar /system/xbin/.
    chmod 0755 /system/bin/chargemon
    chmod 0755 /system/bin/charger
    chmod 0755 /system/xbin/sh
    chmod 0755 /system/xbin/xrecovery.tar
  7. done now reboot and enjoy full rooted stock rom with recovery :)


Trouble-shooting:

incase adb server doesnt start try the following-
  • try rebooting PC
  • exit flashtool and other adb requiring services!
  • preferably exit antivirus & close all other apps

DOOMORD's GUIDE ON FIRST PAGE IS THE WAY TO GO, WORKING 100%.

ALSO GUYS, for me the UPGRADE PACKAGE downloaded as a file for some reason, just rename it as .ftf and put in firmware folder in flashtool along with downgrade file.

WOO THANKS AZUZU, YOU ROCK.

I WONDER IF ARC USERS CAN TAKE THIS METHOD?? YOU HAVE AN ARC DONT YOU DOOMLORD???
