It does however have Wi-Fi Direct which seems to have replaced it although I'm only just reading up on it.

Sim lock is nothing to do with what rom you are running, hence why when you get sim unlock, it persists even if you flash new rom. So there should be no problem with that, all orange will want is your IME number, which is not effected by changing roms. :)

Not necessary.

After a bit of deliberation, I decided "ah to hell with it" and took the plunge. I upgraded direct from Orange GB to Xolo ICS with absolutely no problems at all. You will still have all the Orange apps doing it this way, but whether that is a good thing depends on whether or not you use them.

First impressions, this thing is very fast and smooth. It was already fast and smooth of course, but it now just seems to be more so. You lose a little functionality on the camera, as there are less options to fiddle with, but I can confirm the much mentioned clicking when recording video in HD with autofocus is now gone, and is it just me, does picture quality seem very slightly better on HD recording?. Stills look much the same, although selecting Vivid improves colour saturation and pictures are now really very good outdoors in bright light.

Got an OSD today and i'm ready to play with it :)

So if i understand correctly i can flash the ICS update without having to flash the GB update first ?

And is it safe to root yet or is it still experimental ?

I dont want to bury this phone in the garden just yet :P

Yes you can get ICS straight from the orange ROM by following my guide. Root is safe, but there have been problems so I would not recommend it yet.

I think the flashing screen is because of busybox in the root flasher it needs to be replaced with the one in the /sbin folder someone with a rooted fone could get it

you can use root explorer an go to /sbin copy busybox to your internal sdcard then connect to oc for upload

what I did was just copyed it from /sbin to system/xbin and changed the permission to


owner x x x
group x o x
others x o x

Yeah I was thinking of doing the root exploit again, but with my original system busybox in place of one in root exploit folder, and also replacing the superuser apk and binary with the x86 version, should sort it out maybe ?

And also as you advised using system busybox in xbin, I did this and root is still good. Edited by jikobutsu
