Hi,

So here it is. All in one tool to modify Sony Tablet S (/P/Xperia) in most important ways.

If you think about some new functions, which could be useful to add - feel free to propose.


If you want to keep this project alive - don't forget to donate,
its not mandatory, but greatly appreciated.

Condi presents... S.onyTablet.S [ALLinONE] tool :)
zdnet-sony_tablet_s1_side.jpg


[S.onyTablet.S features]:

MAIN MENU:
  1. [ICS-OK] Root device - doesn't need description. Added compatiblity for CHINA devices and new root method for ICS!
  2. [ICS-OK] Unroot device - this will delete su, busybox, superuser - all root things. Useful regarding warranty.
  3. [ICS-OK] Region changer - !! yes! one-click region changer, also changes additional build.prop
    values, in order to get correct ota-update on current old-region firmware. Available 29 regions. For S&P tabs only.
    Big THANK YOU to all the people, who helped, collection of regions is based on users values, in large part.
  4. [ICS-OK] Run ADB Shell - runs adb shell - terminal from pc. Just handy.
  5. [ICS-OK] Reboot device - just reboot.

    CUSTOM ROM AND FLASHING SUBMENU:
  6. [ICS-OK] Create decrypted update.zip - boom1 :) decrypt official OTA updates, and can make custom rom from it.
  7. [ICS-OK] Add root, "rescue-backdoor", init.d to decrypted zip - boom2 :)
    (in previous step it can be also made) - make custom rom with root and build.prop mod built-in.
    Now init.d also included! in v2.3 I've moved script into separate files\_custom_update_maker.bat - to be userfriendly,
    now you can make your own modifications, own custom rom based on AiO :)
  8. [ICS-OK] Sign decrypted custom-update.zip - boom3 :) signs modified update.
  9. [ICS-OK] Flash signed zip [auto/manual] - boom4 :)
    (before using sign your update) - WELCOME CUSTOM ROMS FLASHING!
  10. [ICS-OK] Flash signed zip [straight from recovery] - will work only on devices
    already-working with _hack_recovery.zip! and with recovery up to R1A. Handy in some situations.

    TWEAKS AND MODS SUBMENU:
  11. [ICS-OK] Install "rescue-backdoor" - anti-bootloop protection, gives opportunity to reflash current firmware
    if something goes wrong with modifying system things.
  12. [ICS-OK] Run OTA ZIP autodownloader - you've got to have "System Update" notification to use it.
    Make it if new OTA comes in, or after "rescue-backdoor".
  13. [ICS-OK] Toggle OTA system updates and notifications - you can disable annoying update notifications
    (after "rescue-backoor"). Also enable back.
  14. [ICS-OK] Install init.d support - just push your bash scripts to '/system/etc/init.d/' to get them autostart
    on device booting. Useful to get some modifications (for example other sdcard mounting).
  15. [ICS-OK] Install gps-fix mod - changes gps.conf with modded version to get better and faster signal.
  16. [ICS-OK] Fake as other device - fake your tab as one of four available (Acer A500, Motorola XOOM,
    Galaxy SII, Galaxy TAB) - to get more games/apps available in market :) To bring back original - run again.
  17. [ICS-OK] [init.d] script] Increase SD/extSD read speeds. - adds init.d script which automatically on boot changes cache value,
    to get better read speeds (idea by obicom, solution by brainmaster - read more here, thx guys!
  18. Add WiFi AD-HOC Support - As suggested - fully automatic adhoc enabler. HC only.
    Big thanks to zerod78 for the solution! To get back to original state - run again.
  19. [ICS-OK] Install latest [modded] Google Play Store - changes Google Store App to one,
    which is modded to unlimited access to apps and with removed countries restriction etc.
    Big thanks to Deeco7 and Team ICEmods for the modded apks! To get back to stock app - run again.
  20. [ICS-OK] Install latest PlayStation Mobile app. - Downloads latest PSM app from Sony, and installs it.
    Users who got problem with installing 'Account Manager' update from inside PSM can use modded Google Play Store,
    from above, to install it without problems :)
  21. [ICS-OK] Install "USB Mass Storage" support. - yes! for external sd, and also internal one!
    Can be easly turned on with two shortcuts on home screen :)
  22. [ICS-OK] Enable write permissions to SD. - reenable SD write permissions for all applications! No more FileTransfer-monopoly!
  23. [ICS-OK] Update OEM Apps. - some oem apps from latest JB release2 fw for Sony Tablet S owners!


    UPDATE CHECKER - new function, which checks on start (~2s) if there is a new version of ALLinONE!
    If there is new version - it opens official S.onyTablet.S webpage! Always stay up to date :D
    This option can be turned off - if you want to disable it just make empty file called "_offupdates" in "files" directory ;)

Its good to use S.onyTablet.S tool not too deep in directory structure,
unpack it in root of C:\S.onyTablet.S v6.0 for example ;)

[FAQ - frequently asked questions v1.0]:


If you have some questions, just ask, most common, usefull will be added here.


1. I don't know this, I don't know that! Grrrrr! That doesn't work!
Throw everything and help me NOW!

- Remember that all the project is free, everybody who works here, spends his own
free time. Its our hobby. We all have jobs, families, everyday duties. Nobody force
you to do anything. Appreciate all the work, read all you can before proceeding,
do not blame if something goes wrong. Of course feel free to post, but its good
to search for the solution, before doing that :) Most of the questions has already
been answered.


2. How can I know if my tablet is rootable?
- Just run AiO tool, and choose 'Root' function, it will gonna check in the beginning
if your device is rootable, if not - you will gonna see the statement.


3. When root for not-rootable (fw R6A+) devices will gonna be available?
- There is no ETA. When new exploit is going to be found, then of course
I will inform you about it, and it should included in future version of AiO tool.


4. I've successfully flashed 'custom prerooted ICS', there is SuperUser in apps,
but I don't have working root, why?

- If you have SuperUser, and /system/bin/tempsu binary, then most probably you used
SuperSU in 3.2.1. In AiO v2.7 there was no path check for SU binary.
Just use this small fix (path check included in AiO v2.8+).


5. I've flashed 'custom prerooted ICS', but I can't access Google Play Store (Market),
how to fix this?

- Just use modded Google Play Store, from AiO 'Tweaks and Mods' submenu,
choose standard one.


6. I've flashed 'custom prerooted ICS'. I want Honeycomb 3.2.1r2 back!
Can I downgrade my device from prerooted 4.03 to 3.2.1r2
?

- YES! In few simple steps:
1. Boot into RECOVERY;
2. Flash 3.2.1r2 update zip (removed from s.ony server - added mirror :) );
3. During flash tablet will reboot 3 or 4 times, with 'green dots' screen.
Just before last 3rd dot reboot you've got to hold VOL+ button,
to get to RECOVERY just after flashing complete! IMPORTANT!;
4. Wipe device;
5. DONE.

Wipe just after flash is very important, because if you will not gonna do this,
then it will be bootlooped in start animation, after wipe will boot correctly,
but after another reboot it will gonna boot again into ICS!
So if you will not gonna wipe just after flash, then just start all over again.


7. I've bricked my device! What can I do?
- As long as your 'region.zip' file is not damaged, then for 99% your tab can be fixed.
Firstable try to flash this: 3.2.1r2 firmware
if not works, then try this:
signed-nbx03_016-ota-120803071.zip,
in fot works, then try this:
signed-nbx03_001-ota-120803002.zip

In most cases it works. If it will fail then:
1. Boot into RECOVERY;
2. Try to flash the update again - it will fail - thats ok;
3. Wait for 2-3min to get adb available;
4. Use 'adb pull /tmp';
5. Post your recovery.log and region.prop files.


8. I've flashed 'custom prerooted ICS'. Now I get OTA update notifications,
is this normal?

- YES, its normal. In order to 'be safe' we need to have lower incremental value,
and thats why your device 'thinks' that there is a new firmware on the air.
DO NOT UPDATE. It will flash stock fw, no root, no way back.
You can disable ota notifications via AiO - tweaks&mods section.


9. I've flashed R5+ ICS firmware. I can't decrypt and flash custom updates!?
- From R5+ firmwares adb shell in recovery has been disabled.
It means that you can't use preroot/decrypt/flash AiO functions
in future fw releases.


10. Is there a way to update to R5+ and still be able to hack recovery?
- YES, in AiO v5.3 make custom prerooted firmware,
and choose to replace hidden.img in custom update.
It will prevent from recovery update = will remain hackable one.


11. I'm trying to root (new method). I still get ERROR INTENT 3?
- The script checks after getting all the permissions,
after every step the check is being made.
Most of the devices will be rooted after 2-3 try,
but some of them... not. What to do?
Just be patient. Some users got root on 1st run,
some reported that got root after ~30 tries :)

@Condi

I would like to ask for a new feature. Is it possible to disable the "Transfer" message when a sdcard is in the device and I reboot it?

With my "mount ext. sdcard into int. sdcard" trick, this message makes no sense and I guess I am not alone with this which.

Do you know what kind of service and app is responsible for? :confused:

-- Edit --

I guess it is the service -> package:com.sony.nfx.app.filetransfer

and the application -> /system/app/FileTransferApp.apk

man you disable that request on Transfer app go to setting of that app and disable :)

Hi,


So here it is. All in one tool to modify Sony Tablet S (P?) in most important ways.
From now on I will directly update 'S.onyTablet.S' tool with new features.
If you think about some new functions, which could be useful to add - feel free to propose.


Condi presents... S.onyTablet.S [ALLinONE] tool :)
zdnet-sony_tablet_s1_side.jpg


[S.onyTablet.S features]:
  1. Root device - doesn't need description.
  2. Unroot device - this will delete su, busybox, superuser - all root things. Useful regarding warranty.
  3. Install "rescue-backdoor" - anti-bootloop protection, gives opportunity to reflash current firmware
    if something goes wrong with modifying system things.
  4. Run OTA ZIP autodownloader - you've got to have "System Update" notification to use it.
    Make it if new OTA comes in, or after "rescue-backdoor".
  5. Toggle OTA system updates and notifications - you can disable annoying update notifications
    (after "rescue-backoor"). Also enable back.
  6. Install init.d support - just push your bash scripts to '/system/etc/init.d/' to get them autostart
    on device booting. Useful to get some modifications (for example other sdcard mounting).
  7. Run ADB Shell - runs adb shell - terminal from pc. Just handy.
  8. Reboot device - just reboot.



[Changelog]:

Code:
[25.02.12] v1.0 - initial release.

Great Job condi! Just a thought to possibly add for a future update. If your enable updates is already turned off you need to turn them on before running rescue back door. Otherwise you have to exit after the buld.prop has been lowered, turn on the updates, then re-run rescue back door lowering the build.prop once again. Not a big deal for me but might simplify the process if when the script runs for the rescue back door it automatically turns on the ota updates to avoid an additional step. Other than that this is an awesome all-in-one you have created and the ability to unroot is huge for warranty issues. Great job again Condi thank you!!

condi is on fire~ :D thanks for this awesome tool. Finally rooted my Japan STS set with this tool. And successfully ran option 3, 4, 5, 6.

Currently trying to run mount script at init.d. Still can't get the right timing though. Tested with sleep 75 and 120, still no go.

yep, I thought about it also, before 2am when I was finishing it, but I was too sleepy to get it working :D :D thanks for pointing out - I've got it already done in v1.1 version. Just want to add also condition for users, who have unrootable tabs - S.onyTablet.S v1.1 will recognize it and not go through all the futher script. It will also detect if its rooted or not device - in all other functions - 2-6.

---- v1.1 up.

Hi, maybe I've missed something.

After running successfully point 6 it was supposed to have my music in external sdcard available in Google music player?

    Hi,

    So here it is. All in one tool to modify Sony Tablet S (/P/Xperia) in most important ways.
    From now on I will directly update 'S.onyTablet.S' tool with new features.
    If you think about some new functions, which could be useful to add - feel free to propose.


    If you want to keep this project alive - don't forget to donate,
    its not mandatory, but greatly appreciated.

    HUGE THANKS to those that have already donated!



    Condi presents... S.onyTablet.S [ALLinONE] tool :)
    zdnet-sony_tablet_s1_side.jpg


    [S.onyTablet.S features]:

    MAIN MENU:
    1. [ICS-OK] Root device - doesn't need description. Added compatiblity for CHINA devices and new root method for ICS!
    2. [ICS-OK] Unroot device - this will delete su, busybox, superuser - all root things. Useful regarding warranty.
    3. [ICS-OK] Region changer - !! yes! one-click region changer, also changes additional build.prop
      values, in order to get correct ota-update on current old-region firmware. Available 29 regions. For S&P tabs only.
      Big THANK YOU to all the people, who helped, collection of regions is based on users values, in large part.
    4. [ICS-OK] Run ADB Shell - runs adb shell - terminal from pc. Just handy.
    5. [ICS-OK] Reboot device - just reboot.

      CUSTOM ROM AND FLASHING SUBMENU:
    6. [ICS-OK] Create decrypted update.zip - boom1 :) decrypt official OTA updates, and can make custom rom from it.
    7. [ICS-OK] Add root, "rescue-backdoor", init.d to decrypted zip - boom2 :)
      (in previous step it can be also made) - make custom rom with root and build.prop mod built-in.
      Now init.d also included! in v2.3 I've moved script into separate files\_custom_update_maker.bat - to be userfriendly,
      now you can make your own modifications, own custom rom based on AiO :)
    8. [ICS-OK] Sign decrypted custom-update.zip - boom3 :) signs modified update.
    9. [ICS-OK] Flash signed zip [auto/manual] - boom4 :)
      (before using sign your update) - WELCOME CUSTOM ROMS FLASHING!
    10. [ICS-OK] Flash signed zip [straight from recovery] - will work only on devices
      already-working with _hack_recovery.zip! and with recovery up to R1A. Handy in some situations.

      TWEAKS AND MODS SUBMENU:
    11. [ICS-OK] Install "rescue-backdoor" - anti-bootloop protection, gives opportunity to reflash current firmware
      if something goes wrong with modifying system things.
    12. [ICS-OK] Run OTA ZIP autodownloader - you've got to have "System Update" notification to use it.
      Make it if new OTA comes in, or after "rescue-backdoor".
    13. [ICS-OK] Toggle OTA system updates and notifications - you can disable annoying update notifications
      (after "rescue-backoor"). Also enable back.
    14. [ICS-OK] Install init.d support - just push your bash scripts to '/system/etc/init.d/' to get them autostart
      on device booting. Useful to get some modifications (for example other sdcard mounting).
    15. [ICS-OK] Install gps-fix mod - changes gps.conf with modded version to get better and faster signal.
    16. [ICS-OK] Fake as other device - fake your tab as one of four available (Acer A500, Motorola XOOM,
      Galaxy SII, Galaxy TAB) - to get more games/apps available in market :) To bring back original - run again.
    17. [ICS-OK] [init.d] script] Increase SD/extSD read speeds. - adds init.d script which automatically on boot changes cache value,
      to get better read speeds (idea by obicom, solution by brainmaster - read more here, thx guys!
    18. Add WiFi AD-HOC Support - As suggested - fully automatic adhoc enabler. HC only.
      Big thanks to zerod78 for the solution! To get back to original state - run again.
    19. [ICS-OK] Install latest [modded] Google Play Store - changes Google Store App to one,
      which is modded to unlimited access to apps and with removed countries restriction etc.
      Big thanks to Deeco7 and Team ICEmods for the modded apks! To get back to stock app - run again.
    20. [ICS-OK] Install latest PlayStation Mobile app. - Downloads latest PSM app from Sony, and installs it.
      Users who got problem with installing 'Account Manager' update from inside PSM can use modded Google Play Store,
      from above, to install it without problems :)
    21. [ICS-OK] Install "USB Mass Storage" support. - yes! for external sd, and also internal one!
      Can be easly turned on with two shortcuts on home screen :)
    22. [ICS-OK] Enable write permissions to SD. - reenable SD write permissions for all applications! No more FileTransfer-monopoly!
    23. [ICS-OK] Update OEM Apps. - some oem apps from latest JB release2 fw for Sony Tablet S owners!


      UPDATE CHECKER - new function, which checks on start (~2s) if there is a new version of ALLinONE!
      If there is new version - it opens official S.onyTablet.S webpage! Always stay up to date :D
      This option can be turned off - if you want to disable it just make empty file called "_offupdates" in "files" directory ;)

    Its good to use S.onyTablet.S tool not too deep in directory structure,
    unpack it in root of C:\S.onyTablet.S v6.0 for example ;)

    [FAQ - frequently asked questions v1.0]:


    If you have some questions, just ask, most common, usefull will be added here.


    1. I don't know this, I don't know that! Grrrrr! That doesn't work!
    Throw everything and help me NOW!

    - Remember that all the project is free, everybody who works here, spends his own
    free time. Its our hobby. We all have jobs, families, everyday duties. Nobody force
    you to do anything. Appreciate all the work, read all you can before proceeding,
    do not blame if something goes wrong. Of course feel free to post, but its good
    to search for the solution, before doing that :) Most of the questions has already
    been answered.


    2. How can I know if my tablet is rootable?
    - Just run AiO tool, and choose 'Root' function, it will gonna check in the beginning
    if your device is rootable, if not - you will gonna see the statement.


    3. When root for not-rootable (fw R6A+) devices will gonna be available?
    - There is no ETA. When new exploit is going to be found, then of course
    I will inform you about it, and it should included in future version of AiO tool.


    4. I've successfully flashed 'custom prerooted ICS', there is SuperUser in apps,
    but I don't have working root, why?

    - If you have SuperUser, and /system/bin/tempsu binary, then most probably you used
    SuperSU in 3.2.1. In AiO v2.7 there was no path check for SU binary.
    Just use this small fix (path check included in AiO v2.8+).


    5. I've flashed 'custom prerooted ICS', but I can't access Google Play Store (Market),
    how to fix this?

    - Just use modded Google Play Store, from AiO 'Tweaks and Mods' submenu,
    choose standard one.


    6. I've flashed 'custom prerooted ICS'. I want Honeycomb 3.2.1r2 back!
    Can I downgrade my device from prerooted 4.03 to 3.2.1r2
    ?

    - YES! In few simple steps:
    1. Boot into RECOVERY;
    2. Flash 3.2.1r2 update zip (removed from s.ony server - added mirror :) );
    3. During flash tablet will reboot 3 or 4 times, with 'green dots' screen.
    Just before last 3rd dot reboot you've got to hold VOL+ button,
    to get to RECOVERY just after flashing complete! IMPORTANT!;
    4. Wipe device;
    5. DONE.

    Wipe just after flash is very important, because if you will not gonna do this,
    then it will be bootlooped in start animation, after wipe will boot correctly,
    but after another reboot it will gonna boot again into ICS!
    So if you will not gonna wipe just after flash, then just start all over again.


    7. I've bricked my device! What can I do?
    - As long as your 'region.zip' file is not damaged, then for 99% your tab can be fixed.
    Firstable try to flash this: 3.2.1r2 firmware
    if not works, then try this:
    signed-nbx03_016-ota-120803071.zip,
    in fot works, then try this:
    signed-nbx03_001-ota-120803002.zip

    In most cases it works. If it will fail then:
    1. Boot into RECOVERY;
    2. Try to flash the update again - it will fail - thats ok;
    3. Wait for 2-3min to get adb available;
    4. Use 'adb pull /tmp';
    5. Post your recovery.log and region.prop files.


    8. I've flashed 'custom prerooted ICS'. Now I get OTA update notifications,
    is this normal?

    - YES, its normal. In order to 'be safe' we need to have lower incremental value,
    and thats why your device 'thinks' that there is a new firmware on the air.
    DO NOT UPDATE. It will flash stock fw, no root, no way back.
    You can disable ota notifications via AiO - tweaks&mods section.


    9. I've flashed R5+ ICS firmware. I can't decrypt and flash custom updates!?
    - From R5+ firmwares adb shell in recovery has been disabled.
    It means that you can't use preroot/decrypt/flash AiO functions
    in future fw releases.


    10. Is there a way to update to R5+ and still be able to hack recovery?
    - YES, in AiO v5.3 make custom prerooted firmware,
    and choose to replace hidden.img in custom update.
    It will prevent from recovery update = will remain hackable one.


    11. I'm trying to root (new method). I still get ERROR INTENT 3?
    - The script checks after getting all the permissions,
    after every step the check is being made.
    Most of the devices will be rooted after 2-3 try,
    but some of them... not. What to do?
    Just be patient. Some users got root on 1st run,
    some reported that got root after ~30 tries :)

    The AIO may be helpful but it's far from perfect, with incorrect messages ("su missing" when adb drivers or just the device wasn't found) and missing crucial information like "reboot your device by holding vol+ etc etc etc IF AFTER A WHILE YOU ARE STILL STUCK HERE, CHECK THE DEVICE MANAGER FOR MISSING DRIVERS"
    Nobody force you to use it, you can always do everything manually,
    no need of AiO, thats a PERFECT SOLUTION.

    I've included a lot of verifications in AiO,
    but for God's sake - don't blame AiO&me for that you had incorrect drivers.

    Anyway, thank you for your program, but you should spend your time for the next update to fix the output and making it more troubleshot friendly. I mean, the root failed (because the hacked mtp driver that was included in the program's files wasn't automatically installed) and AIO's output was success?!?!
    I can't make it more user friendly. It needs some experience,
    if its not user friendly for you, then again - don't use it.

    And no - I'm not gonna spend my time on fixing what you've suggested.
    Most likely I'll spend my time with my wife.

    Good night.
