Hi
Right now I am about to buy a Orange San Diego but right now is the root process stable? Or do I have to install a Rom first because I am a complete noob.if someone can make a guide on how to do this because I don't want to brick this phone

Also does the SD card work because I am a gamer

Root is fine, as is sd slot. Look at AIO tool

Hi,

Can't get anything to work.

Can't get root to work adbd is not giving me the option to tick the box and superuser doesn't see any apps or seem to do anything.

I can't flash the orange ICS (option 2 I think) or downgrade (32). Nothing seems to work with this warranty swappout phone.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Does anyone look at these pages any more?

Cheers
John

It would also help if you could state what exactly you have on the phone now and what it is you're trying to achieve.
And as you can see from the most recent posts this forum is still active.

Hi,

I am running the original orange ICS.

I am trying to root and enable the sdcard slot.

The tool worked on my previous OSD but after having it replaced with a faulty power button the tool no longer works.

I'm concerned with changing it to xolo as I wounldnt be able to return it under warranty if I had another problem.

Is it now only the xolo thats rootable?

If I go for xolo can I switch back to an earlier version of the orange ICS without doing the update?

What is the difference between the xolo and the orange ics (apart from rootability)

Cheers
John

No, Orange is rootable too, you've probably got the small patch installed that needs removing first. Use the downgrade option in the tool. It actually installs the Xolo original ICS rom, don't let it update OTA.
I would use the auto-aio-xolo.bat file which you'll find in C:\SanDiego\tools which will flash Xolo rom(again ;) ), root, debrand, enable SD card(you have to have a card inserted) and deodex all in one(excellent work once again from Ricky).
You can always flash the Orange logo after the fact if it bothers you.
The only differences between Xolo and Orange are the bloatware that once rooted usually gets deleted anyway, the stock roms are exactly the same..

Edit :- oh, and Orange roms use orange notifications(obviously), the Xolo ones are a pale blue. Once deodexed you can use the themes developed by
jikobutsu.

Well still not getting anywhere.

I have run the tool and the batch file.

It does reboot the phone most of the time but I am getting a lot of read only file system messages and a lot of failed for remounts and copying files.

Not sure where I am going wrong but nohing seems to work.

Cheers

Are you sure you've ticked both boxes in adbd unsecure(presuming you've got that far)?
Try copying the Xolo.zip(299MB) to your root and go to settings > about phone > update then update from usb storage.

Edit :- that'll give you a basic Xolo ICS(don't accept any updates OTA!!!), then you can use the tool to root, enable SD card and flash the ORANGE Logo if you want.

Thanks I will give that a try. Do you have a link for xolo.zip?

I have copied adbd to the sdcard and run it from there but I don't get the tickboxs and says it needs super user.

When I run the tool it says its copied adbd to data/temp/something but I can't find the file on the phone. What is the full path?

I also get a blue android with androidboot over it with a green stationary line under it.

Eventually (about 20min) I gave up waiting and powered down/up the phone.

Another thing is live wallpaper is lost everytime I power down the phone. Don't know if that is significant?

Thanks for all your help.
John

What can I say you guys are awesome.

Ran the update.zip....xolo

adbd and super user worked as they should and the boxes were ticked :)

From there plane sailing. Rooted, sd cards and orange logo!

Can anyone recommend a laucher. I like nova but the live wallpaper loss is getting a bit annoying but I like that you can get more icons on the screen and add more pages.

Many thanks.
John

I use Apex which is compiled for ICS and up specifically, it's really slick. I used to use Go on my SF but I've found it to be slowly sinking under the weight of all the extra apps and widgets you can add nowadays.
