Just quick update,

I have managed to flash my device to Xolo 2.3.7 and then updated to Xolo ICS (after taking my heart into my mouth)!!

So far I'm a happy bunny, ICS works well, it's fast and mainly bloat free (found 3 apps Xolo care, Social Gallery & Kepplr).

On reboot it's showing about 660mb free.

Chrome works well and fast.

BBC iplayer via the Dolphin browser after setting the user agent to desktop works very well.

You will need to set the region correctly to set the date/time/keyboard etc.

The only issue I had which I resolved was with the gps/google maps. Once I agreed to consent to google knowing where I was and rebooting the phone all appears to be good.

I will report back any Issues but if anyone want to know anything please feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer.

Can you upload the relevant zip file that you used, as some are reporting issues with, and some bullet points on how you did it.

Bits to take note of are

hi as you read iv flashed my osd with the xolo update all is working eg camera wifi internet wifi bluetooth

as always if you follow this guide you do as your own risk i or modaco will not take responsibility if you brick your phone
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


step (1)is to download the update here is the link http://www.xolo.in/s...iles/update.zip

step (2) is to use winrar or 7zip to open the update and you will see a file called recovery.bin extreact it to desktop

step (3) is to download flasher from my post

step (4) next extract flasher folder form flasher.zip and move to c:/

sped (5) is to move recovery.bin to flasher folder

step (6) is to move the update.zip flasher folder

step (7) is to open the flasher and select an option

step (8) is to go into setting and reset phone only if flashing xolo update

You need to be in fastboot mode to flash the recovery, that is why you get waiting for device, because either you are trying to flash recovery from booted device or adb drivers are not installed: http://api.viglink.c..._10639388059031

connect phone to pc and mount the sdcard move the update.zip to the root of you sdcard.

then turn off phone hold vol - hold the power button untill you see the boot screen.

it will boot into fastboot then connect to pc click the flasher. bat it will begin to flash once done let phone boot once
if it dint reboot hold power button.

then shut phone down this time hold the vol+ and then hold the power button untill you see the boot screen then let go of power it will boot into recovery.

next move with vol -+ so press vol - and highlight the one that says update from sdcard
then tap the camera then highlight the one that says update.zip then tap the camera it will install the update one done let the phone boot then reset from setting


The flasher.bat is now called flasher logo.bat and you need to select option 1.

Ensure you disable any firewewall programs when you run the flash logo.bat

When running the flash logo.bat it is working even though it appears nothing is happening on the screen- so be patient, don't kill the program.

When doing the second part of holding the power and vol+ it when to the same screen as power and vol-. When at the recovery screen i pressed and held power and vol+ and it when into the screen that allowed you to install the update.zip it talks about.

Hope this is of some help

Hi all,


I was wondering if flashing directly the update.zip (ICS) from Orange's 2.3.7 with rickywyatt's guide would work ? In fact I can't find Xolo's Gingerbread anymore.

Thx

Is this not Xolo's one you are looking for to go from Orange 2.3.7 to Xolo 2.3.7 ?

mainly bloat free (found 3 apps Xolo care, Social Gallery & Kepplr).

At least you should be able to disable those now.

Thanks for your reply, but this is the same link when you go to their website, it's said that this ICS Rom...(299 Mb, I think XOLO Gingerbread is 259 Mb, I'm I wrong ?)

If you still have your 235 mb download, could you please upload it on Mediafire (other users like me haven't debranded their OSD before).

Yes, that seems to be the ICS update. Has anyone tried flashing it using the above method yet?

And does anyone still have the old 2.3.7 zip?
