  1. Stuck in bootloop after trying to root

    I was having the same issue yesterday. I was able to wipe data/ cache and restart from there. I'm not sure if it will work but you can try this. No need to plug your phone in yet. 1. Get into boot loader using power and both volume up and down. 2. When your in boot loader, press power + volume up. This should get you into the recovery. 3. Look for wipe data/ cache. And reboot after that.
  2. DROID X Rooted

    http://www.theidoctor.org/droid-x-root-tutorial/ Just thought i'd post up the tutorial!!! Thanks to the guys at Alldroid.org, you can now have froyo 2.2 for the Droid X. Here are the directions to root it. As is always the case with this sort of activity, you do this completely at your own risk. Theidoctor.org Is not responsible for any damage caused! Download is attached at the bottom, READ THE GUIDE! REMEMBER WHERE YOU SAW IT FIRST! (Run means type the command in quotes [but not the quotes] then press the Enter key) 1. Download the attached archive and expand it to a folder you can find (eg. c:\DroidXRoot_v2) 2. Set up ADB (Step-by-step guide for Windows Vista/7 HERE. <– USE THAT THREAD FOR ADB SUPPORT PLEASE.) 3. On the phone: Home, Menu Button, Settings, Applications, Development: Make sure the “USB debugging” option is enabled/checked. 4. Status bar, USB connection: Make sure “PC Mode” is selected. 5. Open a command prompt (Windows: Start, Run, “cmd”, OK; Linux: Terminal) 6. Run “adb devices”. If you don’t see your device listed under “List of devices attached”, return to step 2 and follow the link to setup ADB (use that topic for support) and return here when “adb devices” lists your X. 7. Run “CD c:\DroidXRoot” (or where ever you expanded the archive) 8. Run “adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk“ 9. Run “adb push su /sdcard/su“ 10. Run “adb push busybox /sdcard/busybox“ 11. Run “adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid“ 12. Run “adb shell“ 13. Run “cd sqlite_stmt_journals“ 14. Run “chmod 755 exploid“ 15. On your phone, navigate to a screen where you can switch wifi/bluetooth on/off easily (settings, or a home screen with a widget) 16. IMMEDIATELY after executing the next step, toggle wifi or bluetooth off and back on 17. Run “./exploid” and follow directions on screen. Once this completes you’ll be back at a shell prompt. 18. Run “rootshell“. You’ll be prompted for a password. 19. Type in password “secretlol” and press Enter then you are root! (You’ll know because your prompt will now be a “#” instead of “$”) 20. Run “cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk“ 21. Run “cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su“ 22. Run “cp /sdcard/busybox /system/bin/busybox“ 23. Run “chmod 4755 /system/bin/su“ 24. Run “chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox“ 25. Run “rm /system/bin/rootshell“ 26. Run “exit” to drop from root to a non-root user shell (on phone still) 27. Run “exit” to drop back to your machine command prompt (instead of phone) To Confirm root is established: 1. Run “adb shell“ 2. Run “su” (now you should see the # sign which indicates you are root) 3. Watch your screen so you can allow Superuser root access. You’re done! feel free to kill the bloat apps snd such. NOTE: It might be a smart idea to do “rm /system/bin/rootshell” after you have su and superuser in place as ANY program will have access to your root if you leave it (cause everyone will know the password) Credits * Sebastian Kramer for this blog post - http://c-skills.blogspot…07/android-trickery.html * Birdman – for editing Sebastians work for the droidx * [mbm] – for answering birdmans many questions while root was tried (and failed xD) Videos * Evidence of root: http://tiny.cc/DroidXRootProof * Video tutorial for root: http://tiny.cc/How2RootDroidXVideo DOWNLOAD: DROID X ROOT V2 PLEASE DONATE

  5. Need original firmware for i910

    Good stuff! i should be able to get that going soon.
  6. does anyone know where i can find one? the search keeps telling me to broaden my search of "original firmware" lol..... Im trying to sell the phone and the people want it with factory settings. I figure, i can just overwrite the custom roms and beta firmware with the original and let them do the normal upgrading. ist been a while since i have been on.
  7. yes im sure you need to... i dont think the cc20 rom is even under warranty. LINK you can find info on the cf03 release
  8. no problem! If you have any other info to add on there, let me know and i will update the pages... i have these posts on a couple other forums for people to get to.

MoDaCo ROM mirror (added by Paul): LINK Multiple Link Mirrors: http://sharebee.com/bd345218 *TIPS BEFORE STARTING* *Backup your data and do a hard reset to avoid any mishaps. *Make sure your phone is more than 50% charged. It does not take long to update the firmware, but if it dies in the middle of the install, it will not come back to life. *Be careful with overheating the battery, it will cause the phone to shut off as well. Do not plug the phone into the computer until you are told in step 7.
