DUMP PARTITIONS OF YOUR DEVICE
If you wish to dump the partitions of your device to .img files then follow this guide:
IMPORTANT HARDWARE KEY COMBOS
Recovery Mode: Volume Up + Power
This is conventional recovery mode.
Xolo-custom Test Mode: Volume Down + Power
This is a Custom Hardware testing mode by Xolo which is used by Xolo service centre employees to debug any issues in hardware.
Fastboot Mode: To enter this mode, hold down VOLUME UP + VOLUME DOWN together and then insert USB cable (plugged in your PC) and your phone will automatically startup and will be in fastboot mode (There will be a Xolo Logo on the screen). We're lucky to have fastboot mode in our device unlike any custom protocol like ODIN in Samsung.
- Can we get CyanogenMod or any custom firmware (source-built)?
NO. As of yet, Xolo has not released kernel source code of Q1000 Opus2 which is a must to get source-built ROMs on our device. I have sent a request to Xolo-Care to provide kernel source code but they don't care to reply. The history says that Xolo has been unfavorable to developers (don't provide kernel source).
- Is our Stock ROM built on AOSP open-master?
NO. Xolo has used CAF kernel and added a lot of custom apps (to system partition) which is of course, not AOSP.
- Can we use Xposed Modules?
YES. Our Stock ROM is close to AOSP (no heavy themeing like Samsung Touchwiz), so yes.
- Which GPU and Chipset are we running?
Xolo (on it's website) advertises that our device has Adreno 302 GPU but I'm pretty confused of SoC on this device because apps like: CPU-Z show that we are running Adreno 305 unlike advertised. Moreover, pdadb specs and some apps like: Antutu CPU master show that we are running on msm8212 but when I see the build.prop, it's ro.build.platform=msm8610. What I believe is, our device is an msm8610 with an exceptionally new range of quad-cores (exceptionally because msm8610 is dual-core) with an Adreno 305 GPU like some of new mid-range HTC devices come with.
- Where's KitKat update?
It may be very soon that we'll be getting KitKat update because its predecessor: Xolo Q1000 Opus already got KitKat (which was originally launched with Android 4.2 JellyBean). We have much wider scope for updates now as our device comes with android 4.3 out of the box and is newly launched (in July 2014).
