Objects have jagged edges, focus is blurry, colours washed out and noisy. Did some direct comparisons with desire and there was no competition. Desire hands down.

Just ordered one of these, but was wondering if the actual android rom that is on the device is x86 android ?

if so is it not possible to try and run the Superuser-3.1.3-x86-signed.zip available from the website:

http://androidsu.com/superuser/

if not then please dont bite me head off :-)

also has anyone tried the fastbooot command: fastboot oem unlock

From what I read, Paul already has the Xolo X900 ICS rom, but it cannot be flashed to the phone.

Is this rom stable ?? I mean what his sources said about its stability?

Amen to that, just hope it is soon, after seeing ICS on my G300, I just know how nice the OSD will be with it, and like you say, there maybe a chance of root with ics.

i'd be happy with a sim unlock just for now so i can use my existing giffgaff sim, might go to the orange shop to see what my chances are.

i know your supposed to be on orange for 3 month and then its £20 but its worth a try

Next month! So soon, surely not, at least for us poor souls on orange anyway, they will propably spend a few extra months oranging the crap out of it.

Also, I wonder when the xolo ics is released, maybe we could update with it ?

You could try superoneclick using the USB drivers installed by PDAnet.

http://junefabrics.com/android/download.php

IE. download and install PDAnet (above) letting it install it's own generic drivers choose 'other phones'. Then try running superoneclick.

This method worked for me when rooting a huaewi u8180 recently, where nothing else would play ball... (superoneclick would just hang).

I know this is an Intel and not ARM chipset but there has been reported success with another Intel Medfield phone using this tool (ie Lenovo K800) here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1685304&page=2

and obviously, that's slightly different hardware too.. but it could be worth another shot!! ;) Good luck! :)

I wondered if Intel are new to all this, there is a possibility they approached one of the android giants about locking bootloader and so maybe root exploit method for say a HTC would yield results. Probably talking a load of cod, but in the situation we are in here, I think all ideas count for something no matter how wacky they sound.

As has been noted above, an Intel device has been cracked so this is doable.

Can you imagine OSD overclocked to 1.8Ghz, show me one Android that would out perform it, considering it is already faster than most dual cores.

I dont know if this is relevant but all the exploits that i know off need sd-cards but the osd only has USB storage this could be what's preventing the exploits
