    Anyone can help me?

    I need to unlook/root a Motorla Motoroi XT720 that was purchased in South Korea.

    Firmware Version 2.0.1 S/W Version STSKT_N_79.11.31R Kernal Version 2.6.29-omapai

    The specs are:

    Firmware Version 2.0.1
    S/W Version STSKT_N_79.11.31R

    Really need a solution or some advise to find a solution

    did you try flashing the xt701 firmware on it? The specs of both phones are similar enough that it might work.

    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.

    I have not had any luck with this just yet. I am still looking. I could not find the XT701 firmware but I did find this site:

    But I am unsure iof this is the firmware needed to unlock/root the phone.

    Lets keep on looking and asking !!!!

    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.

    HI Noose475,

    With the release of the unlocked version in Germany and UK this month I am hoping to get an update that I can use to unlock the Korean version.

    How have you been going to find an unlock ( file?

    I actually bought one of theose Unlock code generator codes from an unlock service but it didnt work becaus ethe Korean verison blocks this functionality.

    Any ideas?

    hey Leeman,

    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.

    Helo Noose,

    Thanks for the info, yes I know about the reset to factory settings functionality, it is the same for other Motorla phones.

    Bascially the phone is locked down to SKTelecom. The only way around this is to source a new file that will root the phone and remove the SKTelecom country lock.

    The functionality is avaialble and some bright sparks in Korea should have this, maybe an sales agent for SKTelecom.

    As mentioned, the phone is being released in Europe shortly and I am hoping to source the correct or SBF files from there.

    Keep in touch.

    Rooting your phone means you have a privilege to edit system files. just like jailbreak on iphone, it you can do almost anything you want on your phone. But! very very risky, so be careful
