Lets root this thing.

    I bought a coolpad, I know.

    So anyways...

    I've seen a supposed guide for the 5860e to root but it does not work. Besides that it's in Chinese.
    dashidotcom
    I installed the adb drivers from Coolpad's website.
    coolpadamericasdotcom

    I tried SuperOneClick v2_3_3 just for giggles, no joy. I'm assuming it has some sort of hidden bootloader. The computer (win7) does not detect the phone to load a driver in recovery. Just can't grasp that one can someone explain? In any case there does not seem to be anything to support rooting or unlocking it anywhere. I also tried various gingerbreak versions.

    I emailed Coolpad's support and got the following response.
    Hey, it was worth a shot.

    Just want to share what I've found.

    One update.
    I followed a post that explained I had the wrong driver loaded. The solution was to manually select the drivers in google's android sdk to update the coolpad stock drivers. Sure enough, fastboot can be accessed but it's locked of course. oem unlock does not work, error message is oem unlock failed <remote failure>. So back to square one.

    On another note,
    I asked for a rom dump.

    Can't say I didn't try. ;)

    Run "ls -l /dev" and past the output somewhere and I'll tell you if it even has a chance of working.

    the pune has already said what needs to be done to check. Run ls -l /dev and give him to output. You can do with with a terminal emulator, or adb.

    Nope, Poot won't work on that one. It has to be a snapdragon chip and qualcomm kernel with lots of /dev/msm* thingies.

    has the stock rom been released yet? im sure if we remove some of the locks on it and put it in an update.img we could confuse the program in installing superuser and unlocking the fastboot, etc etc etc. Possible?

    I just got this phone and have found zero about rooting this thing. I use to develop a bit for the LG Optimus M when I had that phone. There were alot of us working on stuff for that particular model. Is anyone interested in helping me get this thing rooted?

    Things I've discovered thus far:
    I couldn't get a key combination to boot into a factory recovery but I did manage to get some sort of recovery screen using adb.

    Code (Text):
    1. adb reboot recovery
    There are no menus, it simply shows the android guy with the yellow triangle exclamation point. I would assume it checks for some sort of update.zip on the root of the sdcard...but I could be wrong.

    If you hold the volume down key and power it on it says:
    Code (Text):
    1. entering lte rf test mode....
    then a simple white screen with test that says "Calibrating, please wait....".
    I waited.
    It never finished whatever it was doing as I removed the battery and rebooted it with no ill effect.

    If you hold the volume up key and power on it says:
    Code (Text):
    1. ======Enter VIA USB======
    I can only assume this is referring to recovery mode which I already covered.

    I've went to Coolpad's American support page and requested the source for the current android build as it should be released under GPL but I doubt that will get anywhere unless others also request this.

    Any help, feedback, or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Reppard

    UPDATE:

    To get into recovery press and hold volume up and volume down. Then press and hold the power button. Once you see the droid press the Home button to reveal the menu. Can't flash anything from this yet as it fails verification. We will need a custom recovery. If we can get fastboot working for this phone then we can get a dump of the recovery and possible a whole rom dump!

    Just want to let you know I am watching this thread. I do not have the knowhow to actually hack phones, I'm one of those guys that roots phones and installs custom ROMs on them for kicks. I've had my share of Android devices, but like I said, I'm not a dev...

    I just want to show some love for this thread and any devs working on it at this point. here I go with my cheerleading flag. Rah rah. xD

    Glad someone is getting around to doing it.

    Yeah, I bought it because of the larger screen (I actually have a reason for this: I'm high partial legally blind, bigger screen is easier to see)

    I suffered on processor power, quality of screen, and tried to take the Coolpad back to MetroPCS for a full refund, but I was two minutes over the maximum talk time, and the guy wouldn't do it.

    Uh...

    RAH RAH RAH!

    :p

    Have you tried gingerbreak?

    Pretty sure gingerbreak doesnt work. I tried the zergberg exploit which was built from gingerbreak.
  18. reppard

    reppard Well-Known Member

    Don't know how much I'll be able to do. I haven't seen a exploit for 2.3.7 yet. I'm going to download the source to gingerbreak and see if I can make some sense of it and maybe tweak it a bit.

    I at least am certainly glad that attention (even if a little) is being brought to this device. From what I understand this device did not get very good reviews, mainly because of what you lose in hardware. I hope there is something that can be done to at least root it and get Clockworkmod working on it.

    Good luck guys! :D

    Edit:

    Reppard I also had an Optimus M with Cyanogenmod 7. I sold it to a friend because he loved how much better the phone preformed with that ROM. He loves it. :)
