Thanks for your reply. NO I ahve not done this yet. Can you recommend a suotable firmware version for the XT701?
and also, what do you thionk is the risk/chance of bricking this phone?
The south Korean SKTelecom has really locked down this phone. I ahd an argumanet over several emails that should supply me with the unlock procedure xonsidering I bought it outright and their sales staff said it would work with my non-korean SIM.
let me know how if you complete your quest on the motoroi. i've been searching as well but found nothing. i'm out here in s. korea. love the phone. been loading droid apps and it seems to work very well thus far.
lets keep looking. hopefully we will find more motoroi users. the u.s. is suppose to be getting the motoroi as well. so hopefully this will help us. found out the processor is between 600mhz and can be overclocked over 1 ghz. i wanted to root it just for this. if i find out anything i will post.
I'm more of a newbie on this whole unlocking business. Been looking around and researching when I have time. I recently had to visit the motorla center here in korea to get my motoroi right. the tech said my phone had a virus,,,was a bit of a shocker.
I'm trying to overclock my phone,,,and so far it seems to need a rooting process in order to do so.
I will post on anything I discover.
just out of curioustiy,,,do you know about the power off. when you power on holding down the button next to the camera causes the phone to go into the yellow triangle on the screen. from there either the up volume (more likely) or the volume down button simutaniously with the camer button puts you into a reboot stage. it takes a few try's for the second part. this is the same thing as going into "settings" into "privacy" and "factory data reset" BUT there are OTHER OPTIONS listed if you do the whole button thing. you might want to check out. don't forget to back up your phone's info and stuff. i did the button thing twice after watching the korean motorola tech guy do it.
currently going to be relocating to another city here in korea,,,think i might try to make some friends in the motorola tech department in the next city to see if i could get some useful info from them. i let you know if i find anything. if they are cool enough,,,i'll also ask them about your unblocking situation as well.
for now lets keep looking and i'll try to get some info after my move.
Guys i've just registered this forum to inform that korean motoroi xt720 is rootable. i've successfully rooted my phone, and overclocked it. if anybody wants to know how, let me know. have a nice day
i have recently bought a milestone xt720. To be honest to you, i even don't know what the meaning of rooting and unlocking a phone is. so would you please first explain it to me and then tell me how to root my phone.
A: users with stock 2.1 can proceed to step 1 in instructions.
B: users with stock SBF korean 2.2 rom , need to flash stock 2.1 and goto step 1
C: Users with previous release of my beta with OpenRecovery you should just do Factory Reset, and a restore of the new nandroid backup included in the download link, and goto step 8.
1. root it (SuperOneClick ) - included with zip
2. install OpenRecovery , use included apk.
3. reboot phone once
4. copy the folder "nandroid" to root directory of your sdcard.
5. Make sure sdcard is not attached to pc using "mass storage share" to pc.
6. Run OpenRecovery app and "install Recovery".
7. Press Boot recovery
8. restore the backup "stock221"
9. wipe / factory reset in OpenRecovery
But after flashing this EU rom on Korean motoroi Auto rotation feature, FM radio not working any more.
I want to know if i flash back the Korean stock rom on the phone after unlocking will it bring back the lock?
