Hi guys I noticed a 58 mb update today. As I am rooted I can't install it. Could anyone please check it out and see if there are any improvements or changes?

I have a 35mb one on Xolo, downloading now. Feedback soon

Movies and books are installed, keyboard seems better and so does dictionary. Baseband and kernel have changed too

Yes if fixes the dictionary issue, which was throwing errors even for simple words, I needed to use a 4.2 keyboard port (which I may stick with as I like the stock swiping more than Swype or Swiftkey).

GPS Status took 12s for a lock, but one reading doesn't tell you much. Mind you by comparison my Nexus S took 4 seconds, and God knows when I last used the GPS on that. :)

Not likely, as any fixes would be added into JB rather than released for ICS

FWIW the build date for the latest update is 28th May. So some development is likely still going on even if it's not the 4.1 that we want, and that Intel demoed last year.

Btw if I installed this update after rooting will my phone work properly? I haven't deodexed or anything. Just rooted it and deleted social gallery. Any tips/advice?
Heating issues Gps lock network signal loss issues seems to be fixed after the three updates post the original ICS

I am ready to give up root :-D just afraid if the phone bricks after installing over root

Hypothesis:

 

Regaining root after installing this (58mb) patch should be possible, but would require some savvy and a certain amount of preparation.

 

Suggested method:  Before installing the update, copy su somewhere useful but unlikely to be erased by the patch.  Ensure it retains its ownership and the necessary permissions to be useful.  Update.  Use adb, or any other means of your choice, to become root by way of the copy of su.  Remount /system read-write using newfound root powers.  Read the root_me script and repeat the necessary parts.

 

I'll test this at some point.  Possibly tonight, but probably not, so if anyone feels the urge to pre-empt me, go right ahead.  We know it's possible to "update" back to stock ICS, so it shouldn't be too much of an issue if it doesn't work.

I have to say you're a braver man than me ;)

 

I didn't think it was possible to go back to a stock 4.0.1 from the 58MB patch? Does the patch not block the exploit used to gain root?

Well (and yes, it's me; turned out I had an older account and that was why I couldn't use my preferred name. It's slightly complicated. Just ignore it), it's certainly possible to go from the orange-branded ROM with the 58MB patch to the stock Xolo ROM, and thereby regain the possibility of rooting the phone, just by "updating" from "external" storage (id est, update.zip). I'm assuming this holds true for the equivalent patch on the Xolo ROM. I'm about to try what I described in my last post (just waiting for an adb backup to complete), so I'll let you know the results.

Alas, no joy. My copy (which I made in /system/wbin, wbin being an empty folder I'd created for the job) was changed to root.root, 0644 - and the original in /system/xbin, while it retained its global execute permissions, was stripped of its SUID bit. Still, it seemed worth a try. Maybe dumping a copy in /config instead of /system would work. That seems to be the only other persistent storage not mounted nosuid, so I guess it's worth trying another cycle. I'll be back.
