http://www.modaco.co...r-37mb-updated/

I tried that without success,maybe because mine was the 58MB update? I'll just use it as it is for the moment, thanks for the post though :)

it happened to me the same problem, after a failed update, my screen had become black, then changed color, blue, purple, white ....

So I followed the instructions mentioned at the beginning of the post.

I plugged in my OSD on my TV via HDMI, then select display in the parameters of the cursor, it facilitates the work blind.

the provision is not the same between the phone and the television, but you soon realize after several manipulations.

the goal is to enter the identifier for the wifi! and the harder it is to type on a black screen watching the cursor on the television, it's not easy, I took 1 hour to succeed! to put my username.

I found a trick, you place your finger on a clear area then you drag the character and once you type to select, that I found with perceverance.

then go to OTA update and validate!

and after 5 minutes to reboot my phone and surprise!! it showed the same thing that at the television, and I was very happy!!!

a great relief!!!

So Courage must be meticulous and patient!!

your phone is not dead!!

sorry for my anglish , i'm french men !!!

Step to get it work without HDMI TV.

1st - get the vnc server for android HERE https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/41618135/com.vmlite.vncserver-104-v1.0.4.apk

2nd - adb install vnc..blabla..apk

3rd - start the vnc server gui via this

adb shell "am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -n com.vmlite.vncserver/.MainActivity"

4th - start the vnc server

adb shell /data/data/com.vmlite.vncserver/files/vmlitevncserver&

wait til you see something like "Listening for HTTP connections on TCP port 5801" (if not just repeat step 4)

then

adb forward tcp:5801 tcp:5801

adb forward tcp:5901 tcp:5901

Finally open your browser enter this localhost:5801

You should see

Welcome to VNC Viewer

the click on the Java version (make sure you hv java install on your PC)

when asking for password just put 1234 then click ok.

Now you should see you phone desktop and able for you to perform the update without HDMI TV.

Once you running update just let it be for 5mins you should back to normal again. (If with HDMI you should able to see the upgrading process in fastboot mode)

To stop the vnc server

adb shell "/data/data/com.vmlite.vncserver/files/vmlitevncserver --stop

PS ... still looking the way to get back to root for 37mb OTA update.. :angry:

Nice work! Just do one thing...

People without the app installed will not be able to install it blindly...coz that is near impossible so modify ricky's tool to push and install the app that is if people manage to unlock screen blindly

Did u miss the adb install apk line?

This would only work if wifi was enabled before too. Easier with Hdmi cable

Xolo x900: I was fiddling with the phone and clicked on "Update over OTA" - phone is having ICS with the recent update. Not sure what happened but the display is gone. Am able to (a) see the droid boot when the phone is connected to PC using HDMI cable; (B) During normal booting - seen through the PC I can pull the notification screen but am unable to see the "Home screen" of the phone. I tried updating through Update.zip but to of no avail. Question is: I have taken back up of the entire USB in my PC. Can I do a factory reset ? If I do that will the Xolo get bricked ?

Thanks for the help, folks.

By update.zip I'm presuming you mean the Xolo ICS rom(299MB in size) in which case you tried flashing the original ICS rom over a later patched version which is intended to block the root exploit.

You need to read this entire thread and follow the suggestions to get back to a patched Xolo ICS build that is no longer rootable.

Thanks, bluemoonrising. So far no further updates and I have gone through the 4 pages of this thread and the entire 9 pages of another thread on this topic. It appears that without the 12 mb update, I would have to make a trip to one of the service centers of Xolo, which is something I want to avoid. What if I were to opt for Wipe / Factory Reset or Wipe Partition ? I have taken a full back up of the entire SD card on my system.

Any thoughts?

Wipe / Factory Reset or Wipe Partition will have no effect I'm afraid. They seem to have done a really good job of plugging the exploit. The best you can hope for is an updated working phone but without root.

Guide for those who have updated with the 12mb update and wanna provide root access to certain applications:-

**********I don't take any responsibility for you hard bricking your phone************************

What do you need?

x900/osd, hdmi cable,hdtv, ricky's aio tool and some patience.

Step 1- install all those applications to whom you wanna give root access

Step 2- flash xolo update.zip ie brick your phone intentionally....make sure your hdmi connection works or you wont be able to fix your phone.

Step 3-connect your phone and tv like i have done in the above posts

Step 4-Connect your phone to your laptop also...end task any adb process and run sandiego.bat

Step 5-Root the phone like this->attachicon.gif27052013438.jpgattachicon.gif27052013439.jpg after reboot,your phone is rooted..

Step 6-Grant root access to all the apps you want...do this now coz you wont be able to do this after you fix the screen. like->attachicon.gif27052013443.jpg

Step 7-Install the 37mb update via ota to get your screen back and remove root...but wait a second the apps that you granted superuser access can still access superuser.....yippie!

Repeat if you want to add new apps as superuser.....

***Please note***-don not touch the superuser app after this process or you'll mess it up and have to do it again....and don't delete any superuser or you wont be able to add it again till you repeat the process

You can also change logo's remove branding and then update via ota....hope it works for you :-)

Cheers!

I followed these steps and was able to successfully root my x900,as i dont have access to HDMI-in TV,i was using VMserver.before rooting i was able to see my screen on laptop via VMserver,but after rooting,on connecting all i get is a black screen.I tried unlocking the  screen blindly on vmserver and it worked.Can anyone guide me here?

Simple and Fast way to get your phone back to normal, if you have Problem of Screen Flasing Diff colours after flasing it with update.zip

 

Things You need : -

58 mb patch, you can download from here   http://darael.tpchq.org/SanDiego/updatezips/58MiB-patch/xolo/update.zip

A hdmi cable with a supported Screen

 

Steps :-

If u have flashed ur phone with the original update.zip 299mb, just download the 58mb patch from the above link and copy it in ur root folder.

use the hdmi cable and do a upgrade from storage via settings and after 5 mins u will have ur phone back to normal.

 

If u have any problem or error during update of 58mb zip file reboot ur phone and clear ur cache and data ... dont worry this will not delete the update.zip file from ur system !
