The San Diego hacking topic - root progress etc.

Recommended Posts

glossywhite, id be happy to donate, but what past success/experience do you have with android, specifically the rooting ad exploit scene.

I wouldn't bother. Noone else will donate, but thank you. I'm bored of asking, noone can be that interested in the San Diego. Gonna pull my appeal offline next week, if I don't get any results. I have better things to do now.

It is really unfortunate that none are willing to part with a small amount of money to take a chance at getting root :(

If he fails, he fails, but it is a chance still, I donated a fiver, which is not alot of money really, I assumed others would, but it seems that none have.

I know you are good hacker glossywhite which is why I had no problem gambing a fiver, no big loss really is it.

Well if nobody donates now, I dont expect the five back, have a drink on me :)

Thank you. If only other people thought in such easy, simple terms. Cynicism will always ruin people.

I belive it was released in India. Don't quote me though.

I think its the Indian make as well, since xolo are an Indian company...

So there is a china version that is good, but finding a forum is going to be difficult, I am sure there will be one, and possibly someone here has already cracked this device. Anyone got any idea how I would go about finding chinese android forums ?

edit: is the lenova the same as OSD ? because it appears it has been rooted!

I am owning XOLO X900, it is in India, manufactured by Gigabytes, and Lava is just marketing the mobile in India. XOLO X900 is sim unlocked.

Are you in india? If so, is anyone working on root or cracking bootloader?

Your device is sim unlocked, did it come that way when purchased?

I have just bought a san diego, arriving tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing what it can do, should be a step up from my HTC Desire which I rooted and put cyanogenmod on. Be great if this phone can be rooted, I'll be keeping an eye on this topic with interest. Happy to help with testing if required.

Is this still being worked upon, i have quite alot of experience rooting the previously unrooted, and this looks like my ideal phone, considering getting one, Anyone know where to get one Cheap in the UK? Cex doesnt seem to have them (atleast not under a name i can find.)

CEX have one available on line and a few in stores http://uk.webuy.com/product.php?sku=SINTBRAYORAA

Has anyone tried flashing the San Diego with the Xolo update.

It looks like a stock Gingerbread and it would be nice to get rid of the orange bloatware

Do we have an x900 update? I thought the one mentioned previously was just a small update and not a whole rom? If we had a whole rom then it could possibly work, look at g300, you can use U8818 ics update on it.

That's the way I remember it jikobutsu - I think Paul found this update early on. Rather than being a full ROM it was just an update pack and wasn't helpful IIRC

I asked @OrangeHelpers on twitter a couple of days ago and they couldn't give a date, not even a vague one :angry: . By all means pester them some more!

I'm expecting a similar wait and on-going delays as I had waiting for orange to get their s*** together with the froyo update on my HTC Desire. It wasn't quick...

Anyone else finding that the San Diego camera is pile of steaming crap?

From what I read, Paul already has the Xolo X900 ICS rom, but it cannot be flashed to the phone.
