Nothing more than what you see on the forum at the moment. Custom ROMs are currently impossible due to the secure bootloader.

Anyone kow what these NVM files are ? Anything to do with sim lock? locks very similar to nvitem, could be for short.

If I remember right, nvitem was a file edited when the skate got sim unlock ?

Sorry got confused, the nvitem was to restore mac address: http://www.modaco.com/topic/348492-tutorial-get-your-mac-address-if-you-already-unlocked-now-up/

Are you French or Algerian? We cannot use a custom ROM like the RAZR i because we don't have an unlocked bootloader on the San Diego

People keep asking and the answer is the same: No.

The Motorola RAZR i is a completely different device to the Orange San Diego and the Xolo X900. And other Intel devices are different as well. All devices may show the bootloader version as SUNRISE something something but that doesn't mean that they are the same.

If you try and flash the RAZR i files to another phone then you'll break it. Don't do it.

The ONLY way to unlock our bootloaders is for Intel or Orange to provide us with the tools to do so. So far they haven't.

What are the chances of that happening? I've got the feeling that the Nexus 4 has killed our phone while it's just a fledgling, but then again I tend to get a bit cynical approaching Christmas.

If the manufacturers decide the same perhaps they'll just say sod it and release them?

If orange have any play in that, I am going with never rather than maybe :(

This is certainly the last orange device I get, they had a few one hit wonders, blade and skate, even then they wanted locked devices.

Orange do not care at all for android community, all they care about is how many customers are using their sim cards, device sale is a small part of it as what good is high sales if most of them devices are using another network because the device is easy to unlock, that equals money lost and little profit.

I agree with jikobutsu. Orange have nothing to gain (or lose either) by unlocking the bootloader. Maybe gain the goodwill of a few hundred like us. But it would require effort and expenditure (no matter how small) on their part when they're focused on 4G and iphones now.They've moved on.

I reckon they had a good deal with intel over the SD - intel got their chip to the market to see if it worked in the real world, notjust in the lab, orange got a good spec phone to sell at a cheap "own brand" price,so noneed toworry about pushing an unknown brand, and no major manufacturer put their reputation on the line. All orange were obliged to do was release ICS as originally promised - unlike the SF where it was just "maybe" for upgrading from Froyo to GB, it was left to the community to eventually crack that.

I've said on other threads and I'll say it again - if the SD was branded Samsung/Sony/HTC/Apple (!) whatever, then it would be a huge seller.Iit's an excellent phone. Not perfect, but, as a whole, as good as any out there.

Hi,

How do I unroot my phone?

My phone is being swapped tomorrow with a dodgy power button.

I would like to set it back to stock settings (no root, no sd card).

Is this possible?

I am running orange ics.

Thanks in advance.

John

Hi,

I am running the updated tool.

please run adbd-insecure and click the box then remove and reconnect usb then click to continue.

Not sure what to do here.

I have run through it and it now says failure already exists.

The phone is still rooted.

Cheers

Exactly as it says. Run adbd-insecure (the application that was installed to your phone) and check the box to enable insecure adb. Unplug USB, reconnect the continue the unroot.
