Default 101 XS root

Hello,

As expected the 101 XS is quite easy to root. Please note that this method of exploitation has been around for some time.

Go to some ADB shell:

---*---
rm /data/misc/smb/fusesmb.conf
ln -s /data/local.prop /data/misc/smb/fusesmb.conf
---*---

Then reboot the device.

ADB shell again:

---*---
echo "ro.kernel.qemu=1" > /data/local.prop
---*---

After another reboot ADB shell will drop You right into a #root shell.

Don t forget to clean up (rm /data/local.prop; rm /data/misc/smb/fusesmb.conf) afterwards !


nice day,


meimei

For those who dont know:

On the Archos 101 XS "/system" is stored in some SQUASHFS which can be found within "androidmerged.squashfs.secure".

So it is not possible to simply remount /system rw and copy the "su" binary !!!

this isnt that easy.

* first You need to extract kernel and cpio from kernel file
* then You need to re-flash it to "sde" and enable sde menu

* afterwards .. You could hopefully flash a rooted firmware with added su and some modified storage

somebody has to do the job ...
