Hy

I receive my Orange San Diego tomorrow and would like to know if custom ROM can launch like RAZR i ?

I see hardware is very similar but i don't know if software for RAZR i can use for San Diego .

It's just because i see unlocked bootloader :D on the RAZR i .

Thanks

Are you French or Algerian? We cannot use a custom ROM like the RAZR i because we don't have an unlocked bootloader on the San Diego

People keep asking and the answer is the same: No.

The Motorola RAZR i is a completely different device to the Orange San Diego and the Xolo X900. And other Intel devices are different as well. All devices may show the bootloader version as SUNRISE something something but that doesn't mean that they are the same.

If you try and flash the RAZR i files to another phone then you'll break it. Don't do it.

The ONLY way to unlock our bootloaders is for Intel or Orange to provide us with the tools to do so. So far they haven't.

What are the chances of that happening? I've got the feeling that the Nexus 4 has killed our phone while it's just a fledgling, but then again I tend to get a bit cynical approaching Christmas.
If the manufacturers decide the same perhaps they'll just say sod it and release them?

If orange have any play in that, I am going with never rather than maybe :(

This is certainly the last orange device I get, they had a few one hit wonders, blade and skate, even then they wanted locked devices.

Orange do not care at all for android community, all they care about is how many customers are using their sim cards, device sale is a small part of it as what good is high sales if most of them devices are using another network because the device is easy to unlock, that equals money lost and little profit.

I agree with jikobutsu. Orange have nothing to gain (or lose either) by unlocking the bootloader. Maybe gain the goodwill of a few hundred like us. But it would require effort and expenditure (no matter how small) on their part when they're focused on 4G and iphones now.They've moved on.
I reckon they had a good deal with intel over the SD - intel got their chip to the market to see if it worked in the real world, notjust in the lab, orange got a good spec phone to sell at a cheap "own brand" price,so noneed toworry about pushing an unknown brand, and no major manufacturer put their reputation on the line. All orange were obliged to do was release ICS as originally promised - unlike the SF where it was just "maybe" for upgrading from Froyo to GB, it was left to the community to eventually crack that.

I've said on other threads and I'll say it again - if the SD was branded Samsung/Sony/HTC/Apple (!) whatever, then it would be a huge seller.Iit's an excellent phone. Not perfect, but, as a whole, as good as any out there.

Hi,

How do I unroot my phone?

My phone is being swapped tomorrow with a dodgy power button.

I would like to set it back to stock settings (no root, no sd card).

Is this possible?

I am running orange ics.

Thanks in advance.
John

Hi,

I am running the updated tool.

when I choose 8 unroot I get he message

please run adbd-insecure and click the box then remove and reconnect usb then click to continue.

Not sure what to do here.

I have run through it and it now says failure already exists.

The phone is still rooted.

Cheers

Exactly as it says. Run adbd-insecure (the application that was installed to your phone) and check the box to enable insecure adb. Unplug USB, reconnect the continue the unroot.

Thanks. However, this is the Xolo ICS update, which is already known about.

I'm guessing this is just another way to root an unpatched phone. I'm also presuming it won't work at all with a patched rom?

Treat with caution if you need your phone and don't have an alternative.

As per this post, it is in fact possible to mostly regain root after applying the 58MB patch - although this requires either advance planning or a willingness to revert temporarily from the patched ROM to stock ICS.  I say "mostly" because eu.chainfire.adbd won't patch adbd, presumably because it was updated in the patch and the delta it contains wouldn't apply cleanly any more.

 

EDIT -- for anyone who doesn't know, eu.chainfire.adbd is the "insecure adbd" app used as part of the AIO tools process

 

FURTHER EDIT:  In the case of one already having updated with the 58MB patch, the process also requires either a willingness to work blind or the necessary hardware for HDMI display, because reverting to stock ICS will mess the screen up until one applies the patch again.

 

STILL MORE EDITS WOO: Regaining root properly turns out to be as simple as copying su and busybox to /system/bin as well as /system/xbin.  Some of the things we're used to having from the AIO toolkit will bootloop the phone - the only one I've found so far is the "both SD cards" option, but I haven't tried much yet.  Go careful.  Note that there are two ways out of such a bootloop and both involve reverting to stock ICS (fastboot and having the update.zip already on the USB storage).  That said, it's not so much of a pain this time if you've left /config/reroot intact, because you can use the exact same technique to apply the 58MiB patch (if you grabbed it from /cache/fota - it's a .bin file but it's still a ZIP archive) without caring about having HDMI output, and then redo the reroot.

Hello, guys,

I tried to install android 4.0. But now I don't have access to recovery/fastboot or firmware. I just see for a moment in Device Manager "MEDFIELD" and that's all. While bootting, my phone has colorful strapes from purple to gray, but nothing happening. How can I recover phone? Do you know or have any suggestions? How can I enter fastboot? 

 

P.S. Long-press Power + Volup buttons don't help, neither do "fastboot devices" or "fastboot continue". They don't recognize my phone :'C
