I second that... The original thread is very technical and not a simple user guide for most out there.


Or better still - those who have it upload the zip containing the relevant files (including the flasher folder) and upload to a shared site!

I second that... The original thread is very technical and not a simple user guide for most out there.

It's a technical process which isn't simple. Step by step instructions have been given, it can't be made much more simple than it already is. Rooting/flashing firmware in this way isn't for everyone, and you should be under no illusions about that.

To be honest, if you can't understand those instructions, my suggestion is to hang tight for the Orange update, which shouldn't be too much longer now. I wouldn't try and botch your way through something you don't understand, especially if it means potentially bricking your phone.

Even if it does work, you can kiss goodbye to any warranty you currently hold, even if it's a hardware failure. The time will come soon where Orange will stop blindly replacing phones, and start repairing them, at which point, they'll see the non-orange firmware and you'll be up a certain creak without a paddle.

But I don't blame you for being tempted. I know I am. If I can get through this weekend, I know I'll make it! :)

Hi,
It is quite strange, I tried several times to download the ICS usb update from LOXO support site, but each time the size of the Zip is different. Also, none of the different files I tried worked (I previously updated to 2.137 without issue).
Do someone has the original ICS update.zip file you used ?

Thanks,

Don't be shocked if it doesn't work. Google's tests do include checking for security exploits. Given it only got tested a week ago, it wouldn't shock me if even the most up to date methods were patched.

I guess it depends how on the ball Google and xolo are...

This exploit is too new. Also, it would require changes in aosp seen as it's related to adb.

No, it won't.

Unless you have a reliable source that says otherwise?
