Yes you can get ICS straight from the orange ROM by following my guide. Root is safe, but there have been problems so I would not recommend it yet.


mmm too late ... I did it...

I think the flashing screen is because of busybox in the root flasher it needs to be replaced with the one in the /sbin folder someone with a rooted fone could get it

you can use root explorer an go to /sbin copy busybox to your internal sdcard then connect to oc for upload

what I did was just copyed it from /sbin to system/xbin and changed the permission to


owner x x x
group x o x
others x o x

Yeah I was thinking of doing the root exploit again, but with my original system busybox in place of one in root exploit folder, and also replacing the superuser apk and binary with the x86 version, should sort it out maybe ?

And also as you advised using system busybox in xbin, I did this and root is still good.

If we have the update.zip on sd card, and something goes wrong, we should still be able to go into recovery and flash. What about the flasher tool, could that flash the ics update if someone gets into a serious brick situation ?

Not worried about those bloat apps, I am thinking if I mess about to much as I often like too with every device, and now even more so as I have been root deprived for a while now. :lol:
Although I am a lot more nervous with no CWM so probably wont be to silly.

Oh, never noticed as all those apps are frozen with rom toolbox, sod it, I getting rid to then lol.
I noticed that social gallery is running even though frozen, and it always seems to be near the top in battery stats :wacko: But as it is stock gallery, I am thinking it could be linked to camera, just like contacts & phone apk are linked.

I know I could delete half those system apps, done it many times before, but in this case with no clockworkmod, I feel not so brave :lol:

I simply set the Xolo apps to DISABLE in Manage Apps and have no requests to register on rebooting.
