if you had root before, could you open superuser if it's still there and check it's installed correctly please. Just want to know if it still works.

Nope... Superuser has gone. Although i did a fresh install of ICS to try out the update , thats wiped it no doubt

And when the update ran it said updating 62 apps .. dont ask me which one :P

Might as well mention the changes which are mostly the same as I've seen in test roms:

Google Chrome x86 now pre-installed
Face Unlock now native x86 code for better performance
Updates to the Java virtual machine subsystem - unknown what changes though
Bookmark sync for both Chrome and the stock Android browser
Updates to Webcore and Stagefright libs. Most likely bug fixes.
System apps and framework files updated

So really a bit meh in terms of updates. Obviously just a load of bug fixing with the side effect of breaking the root exploit.

BTW I bet root has been lost due to permissions being altered. Nothing in the scripts is deleting Superuser unless the boot.img has been updated to delete the apk on boot?

If it is then there are ways around that.. renaming the superuser apk and installing the su binary somewhere else then symlinking. In theory anyway.. may need to speak to ChainsDD about this.. (the Superuser guy)

Yep. Superuser uses 06755 permissions so the script is changing this. Something like an OTA root keeper app would probably resolve this as it'll move the superuser binary somewhere else on the system but keeping it's permissions so it can be run again after update and moved back to it's original postition.

So that would be: Xolo ICS update > Root > OTA rootkeeper > update OTA > OTA rootkeeper restore.. and fingers crossed you still have working superuser.

The exploit that allowed you to install superuser in the first place will have gone but you should - in theory - still have working superuser so you still have root. And the insecure ADB app will still work.

Means faffing around though. I'd love to do it myself but.. grrr Orange y u slow at repairing. :(

Unless you can flash the original Xolo ICS zip back then you're just going to have to be patient.

Wait before updating anyway.. the update doesn't do anything important for us. Jelly Bean is the one thing we want

Well it's mainly security updates in the new update OTA. Oh and the inclusion of Chrome (which you can get from the Play Store) and native Intel libs for Face Unlock to make things quicker (never used it anyway).

The only interesting things would be to see if they fixed whatever problem Social Gallery had that was causing such high battery usage.

Still, it's rather impressive that updates are being pushed out for the device even if they are small. We know Intel have Jelly Bean running on these devices so fingers crossed that Xolo or even Orange decide to give us a nice Christmas gift.

It was mentioned on another thread that it would be "before the end of the year", so fingers crossed you are right...

Then again, we have seen deadlines come and go before...
