Hey all, I figured this would be another good place attract attention to our hunt for a dev to root our phone. Someone had mentioned Paul from here in regards to rooting so please join in the post and hopefully we can get the phone rooted asap. People have also been suggesting buying a phone for the dev with the bounty now... As I see it unless a proven chef posts on a thread this is a requirement I would be hesitant. But, if Paul or some other dev does ask for this I am willing to help with this. I dont know too much about paypal but I know its easy to get an X10 at any store in Ottawa, Canada and shipping would probably be cheaper within North America). And I did see Paul saying he likes the white one (thats what I got and it shouldnt be a problem to get another one from rogers). I will pm him to join in the thread, got my fingers crossed ;).

Oh and I don't think there's a need to repost your donation amounts, just a nod of support.

If anyone has any thoughts or ideas please post them.

Well done gavriel18. Spread the word around. The more threads on Android forums, the more likely someone with the knowhow will get involved.
I got an X10 for my wife anyway so getting root wasn't part of my purchasing decision. Getting root would be a pleasant addition. :huh:

I'm sure you can root the phone, Paul. :huh:

Could you correct and compile this:

From Bin4ry on xda developers

"So ...
working since yesterday has brought this:
http://rapidshare.co.../tardis.tar.bz2

The problem is after compiling the program crashes with a segmentation fault.
Is someone here with good c-coding skills to correct the code please? I HOPE it should give us root after correcting my mistake oO

Hang on in there a bit, Paul is just working on the Legend and Desire Root followed by a Rom for them, once that is done I'm sure he will look at the X10- he wouldn't have got one otherwise.

Paul comes to rescue again, very soon: :P

@PaulOBrien: Now have a mountain of files and docs for the X10! Root looks possible (albeit unconventional) given time and the right tools.
