Hi all!

So i finished the Root.
(Many thanks to bitluni for dumping the fota path)

At this very moment you cannot apply the root to all devices.
For now we are not able to downgrade with X10flash tool, thats why the root is only applyable if you are on the right software version.
I'm working on this problem!

So first download please the main root package:
http://rapidshare.com/files/409979297/Root-v1.rar

Then you can download the fota.package for you (more will come):

If you are currently on Firmware 37 VFE-1-8:
http://rapidshare.com/files/409979325/VFE-18-37.rar

If you are currently on Firmware 36 WORLD-1-8:
http://rapidshare.com/files/409989811/World-1-8-36.rar

If you are currently on Firmware 38 WORLD-1-8:
http://rapidshare.com/files/409989990/World-1-8-38.rar

If you downloaded main package and Fota.package please extract both!
You have to copy the fota.pkg file into the Fota Folder which is located in the Root Folder!

Howto:
Please enable USB-Debugging in your phone and connect the usb-cradle.
Run the "RootME.bat" it will guide you through the process!

Regards
Bin4ry

is it possible to just change the version info in the .package
to make it compatible with other versions?

nice work tanks lot

if the fotas are just diffs.. how about
gaining root with a fixed one by you
making complete copy of the rooted system
and build a complete fullcustom fota containing all complete files :)
this should work for any version

If you execute the "RootMe.bat", after Step2 you'll see the full debug menu in the phone to select "update from SDCard". You can run the process safely, if the phone isn't in the right version it just won't work, but you won't break/brick anything (just tried) :D:D

Hi guys

Great work Bin4ry :-D. Thanks a lot.

Now I have one question. When i look to my phone info i have this :

Model no. : U20i
Firmware version : 1.6
Kernel : 2.6.29 ([email protected] #1)
Built number : 1.1.A.0.8

That's not the versions where you are talking about with the 37 or 38.

Why is this so different. can i use the root files for the 38?

The problem is that my root bases on the OTA update . So it updates from a specified version to a another one.
You can only use this ATM while you are on this special Version SE released the OTA for!

But as i said another user here had gained root too, his version works on all versions, because he had used a exploit to gain root :)

Of course i will get this thread updated too!

Actually, I've already published the exploid method for X10 mini on the Czech android forum on Thursday ;)
(http://androidforum.cz/root-na-x10-mini-t6061.html)
Congrats to Bin4ry anyway!

Like i wrote! Very nice :) But nobody knew it :p
It's always better to have 2 rooting methods. your one works like a charm too, but it can be fixed easily with new kernel (better said it is fixed in new kernel :/ )

So for now its VERY GOOD :)

Thanks for this too and Grats to you too :)

Confirmed, downgrade to 1.0.A.1.36 and rooting doesn't work... let's try the exploid method! :)

Thanks Bin4ry and Kalbadan, let's keep the work up!! :)

Sorry for the noob question... now that we have root, is there any chance to get a recovery like JFK's,Amor-Ra's, etc. in HTC? (I come from a G1:D )
