I can't remove these:


--- UpdaterSolution.apk
--- SocialExt.apk
--- Service-MultiSNS.apk
--- GenieWidget.apk

It says they can't be removed. I couldn't remount System/app (not sure how I can go into folders), but I did remount /System and it didn't work.

I used RootExplorer, turns out they were mounted, but for some reason ES File Explorer still couldn't delete them. RootExplorer on the other hand deleted them with ease.

Thank you.

There's root setting in ES File Explorer, maybe you can enable it and "enable mount / and /system as rw" option and try again.

I tried to downgrade like it says in the 1st post and it wo'nt go through. it always says update failed.

I think your missing a step. cause we are not suposed to be able to downgrade so it has to be some trick to it, and whats explained its just too straight forward I think.

It fails but you should be able to boot into recovery and reset to factory defaults to get it to boot :)

no no,

nothing happens, it just says unpacking but the pink bar doesn't move and sometimes it just says update failed right off the bat with a yellow warning sign.


just so I can recreate your environment, wich boot and recovery do you use when downgrading? stock 2.3.5 from 28/12?

@That-Guy:

Could you please write a mini-review of the official 2.3.5 U8800?

How are the camera/ video camera (does it include improved Adreno 205 drivers), overclocking (is it possible), locked bootloader (is that a real problem for the future) and so on. Your notes of using official 2.3.5 for couple of weeks.

I am currently running Geno CM 7.1-u8800, but I am considering upgrading to official 2.3.5 per your instructions.

I would like to give the official 2.3.5 ROM a shot.
However, I got this device with MIUI installed.

In order to install the official ROM, I should first downgrade to 2.2.2 and then start with the Rooting step at the beginning of the tutorial?
About step 2 of the downgrade proces (Extract the "dload" folder and copy it (along with its contents) to the ROOT of the SD Card), should I extract it to the internal or external SD card?

Can anybody re-upload/mirror SuperOneClick v2.3.3 please...? Multiupload doesn't work, and I just upgraded to official Gingerbread. Nice guide there, mate. :D

Edit: Mediafire link will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. :)
