In this post i will explain and demonstrate how simple it is to play with our phones with this incredible tool provided by Androxyde and Bin4ry.

1. ROOT ACCESS

1.6 and 2.1 android version
To gain root acces it`s quite easy. Just have to do this:
1. On your phone check "debbuging mode" on Setting > Applications > Development
2. Plug you USB cable
3. Open your flashtool and click on Root box
4. Wait a few seconds and your phone will rebbot
5. Voilá ;)

2.3 android version

Check THIS thread at XDA or ADVERTISING SPAM video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqh1wWwoTbw&feature=player_embedded


3. CLEAN SE JUNK

Now this is where it can get tricky. Remember this: DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING! On next post i will provide a list of witch apps you can delete. without messing your phone.

1. On your phone check "debbuging mode" on Setting > Applications > Development
2. Plug you USB cable
3. Open your flashtool and click on Clean box. If you can`t do that press on Ask Root Perms before.
4. Now from the new window you just have to choose witch apps you want to install/remove. It can`t be more simplier ;)

NOTE: If you don`t want to loose the possibility of the phone automatically acquire APN settings, please remove ReadyToRun file from the top right window (it will remove by default).
Also install a home replacement before you delete SE Home Launcher


5. Once you're done just press on the OK button.

info: All chages you made here will affect how system will work. All apps will be instaled/removed on system/app folder. The only way you can remove files from here is by using thridparty apps (like TitaniumBackup) or this tool.

4. CUSTOMIZE

This is another great option of this tool. With this you can install all your *.apk files in just one click. To do that:

1. Copy your *.apk to FlashTool > custom > apps
2. On your phone check "debbuging mode" on Setting > Applications > Development
3. Plug you USB cable
4. Press Customize button on flashtool
5. That´s it...dificult, hã? :)

5. OPTIMIZE

What does this do? Simple. Install JIT on your phone ;)
And what the hell is JIT? See THIS

In another words. On stock rom you`ll get 450 (more or less) and after applying this you`ll get 650 (more or less) on bechmark tests.

1. On your phone check "debbuging mode" on Setting > Applications > Development
2. Plug you USB cable
3. Press Optimize button on flashtool
4. Your phonne will reboot

6. ADVANCED MENU

From here you can do some tweaks on your phone.
Install xRecovery from zdzihu to install/backup rom´s and more
Play with build.prop :) - be carefull with this!!! for some tweaks see THIS post

note: If you had any issues with xRecovery (X10 HD) please go HERE and download xRecovery-0.2-X10HD-release.apk fix by zdzihu.
