The San Diego hacking topic - root progress etc.

Recommended Posts

That was one point I really stressed when I ranted at them :P

Hopefully they'll take some notice of us... :/

they probably will, its just if they try and lock down the phone further, or help us

Ics was ready 1st may, well we all know what patching they are doing, screwing up things for us. I have never heard of this kind of anit-android stuff. They go completely against the open source nature of android. Lock bootloader, fair enough, but to go to ends of earth to ensure no hack will work, seems like a personal attack on android.lol

I think they're trying to prove the security that they're capable of implementing. A 100% secure phone is A good selling point for corporate customers - think a business buying 500 devices on the basis of there secure nature. These first phones are them showing what they can do as far as securing a device goes. A test run to see how well they've done. Just my thoughts though, might be that they're just bastards

What is worrying here is, what if they start sharing their anti-modding techniques with other manufacturers? Then the android community will be an endangered species!

Also, it is now becoming clear, that they are spying on us here to gather information, everything rickywyatt has tried, they have looked into and sealed even more.

What is their problem man! Is it some game/challenge to them to beat the hackers, like a trophy? As said above by scuzbucket, The security of the device is their main concern, could be for the fact this device and any intel device is not intended for hackers, but businesses etc who need that security.

If so there will be a huge backlash like against HTC and sensible companies will not do it.

I think we can safely say Orange is not a sensible company :P

Have you tried pushing busybox to data/tmp/local and then mounting system with busybox?

Instead of

 ln -s /data/local.prop /data/local/tmp
Try
ln -s /data /data/local/tmp[/code]

I'm not sure whether it would make a difference though..

Do you have access to adb in recovery mode?

Instead of using tmp you could possibly use the folder where the recovery log is dumped to symbolic link the data partition to.
