I gave in and flashed the xolo ics update so I could root the phone again.
However I seem to have run into a small problem when trying to apply the 270 dpi mod.
At first when I ran it I got - unable to chmod system/default/prop (or something like that) but then the phone rebooted, but nothing had changed.
Then I ran it again and I got - cannot stat C:\SanDiego\tools\dpi\270\' : No such file or directory, but it's definitely there in the c drive.
I also tried to adjust the default.prop file on the phone as I noticed it has an entry for the lcd setting, but changing it to 270 doesn't work, it changes back to 240 on rebooting the phone.
The phone is rooted, I've enabled the internal sd card, used the deodex xolo ics (option 17) and then enabled both sd cards (option 14)
Any ideas as to why it's not working ? and can I change the file on the phone ? I'm sure I saw something similar to this problem, but I can't seem to find it.
Edit : -
Okay tried to get the dpi mod to work again, no dice.
The exact errors are - cannot stat 'C:\SanDiego\tools\dpi\270\' : No such file or directory (again the dpi files are in the sandiego folder on the c drive)
Unable to chmod /system/default.prop: No such file or directory
This one is a little puzzling as there is no default.prop file in the system folder, at least there wasn't when I checked with root browser, or ES file explorer.
The default.prop file is in the same folder as android.fstab, charger, init, init.goldfish.rc and various others, does this mean it's in the wrong place ?
Edit (2) : - I've also noticed that any changes I make to system files on the phone (using one of the text editors) don't stick after reboot, I've tried moving the default.prop to /system and renaming the other one, but the change doesn;t stick, I've tried changing the file permissions as well, but again on reboot they don't stick, so it would seem that even though I have super user access (root) I don't really, as I can't make permanent changes ?
I've had similar issues (a while ago now) on linux, it's usually a permissions thing some where along the lines.
