Back on topic, all htc phones used to have the serial port shared with the handsfree/usb plug, does anybody know where is the serial port for this phone is? I'd need a full dmesg and check what the bootloader says through serial when it starts... That's how haykuro found a hole for 32A Magic..
Funny given the fact it was my idea to open this thread in the first place...
By the way, I said that because it would make it easier to be able to root the device and have a chance of getting a bootloader with less restrictions, but hey, if you don't care...perfectly fine for me, I really don't care what you do think either.

I know nothing when it comes to rooting, but I do know Android is linux, and the X10 runs kernel 2.6.29, I found an exploit for this kernel but I don't know if it's possible to use on our Android OS??
Here's the link, hope it helps in some way......
Here's one more:
From balsat -
I'm messing around with a 2.6.29 exploit for the HTC tattoo, it might work on the X10 if they haven't closed the hole.
I uploaded the m7 file to /data/local/bin with "adb push m7 /data/local/bin/m7" opened a shell on the phone with "adb shell" changed the permissions with "adb chmod 755 /data/local/bin/m7" and started the exploit with "cd /data/local/bin" "while `true` ; do /data/local/bin/m7; done" after a while i got this output :
usage: reboot [-n] [-p] [rebootcommand]

But i still got NO root, id tell me :
uid=2000(shell) gid=2000(shell) groups=1003(graphics),1004(input),1007(log),1011(a db),1015(sdcard_rw),3001(net_bt_admin),3002(net_bt ),3003(inet)
And it somehow ****s with the PATH :
ls: not found
$ Cannot set process group (Operation not permitted) at 225
Maybe a hardcore coder can change the program so it will work!?
This exploit cannot be used because the X10 linux kernel is patched.
I downloaded the X10 kernel sources from the SE web site and I checked the ptrace.c file in the kernel folder. Unfortunately, it is patched.
However, because SE provides the X10 kernel source code, we can easily check if an exploit can be used or not.
