    FEW THINGS I'D LIKE TO SAY BEFORE TYPING ANY FURTHER

    #1 : THIS IS STRAIGHT AWAY FROM THE XDA FORUMS. I'LL BE DIRECTLY QUOTING THEIR TEXT HOWEVER THE RED TEXT IN THE QUOTES ARE MY LESSONS WHICH I LEARNT AFTER 6HOURS OF TRYING TO ROOT
    #2 : I'VE JUST SEGREGATED THE WORKING WAY CUZ THERE ARE LOTS OF PAGES THERE
    #3 : IF YOU ARE NOT SURE, DON'T DO IT. IF YOU DECIDE TO DO IT "BACKUP YOUR DATA"
    #4 : I'M POSTING ONLY THE INTERNAL BOOT METHOD
    #5 : I'VE USED NON-GUI VERSION OF BIN4RY FLASH TOOL IF GUI VERSION WORKS FOR YOU THAT'S GREAT
    #6 : USE YOUR BRAIN. DO IT ON YOUR OWN RISK. IF YOU DO ANY HARM TO YOUR FONE ITS NOT MY FAULT
    #7 SEUS ROCKS :D


    Things you'll need

    SEUS (basically your life saver)

    X8 Android 2.1-rus
    X8 Android 1.6
    Modified Image (x8.img)
    Data.img

    Bin4ry Flash tool

    GUI version
    NON GUI VERSION


    STEPS : 1 - Back to 1.6

    STEPS : 2 - Root your phone (basically the 1.6)

    http://androidforums.com/x8-all-things-root/213237-root-unroot-x8-1-6-detailed-explanation.html

    STEPS : 3 - The Real "TRICKY" Stuff

    copy the x8.img file to your sd card root directory

    download ext.rar extract it to your sd card root too

    STEPS : 4 - FLASH TO 2.1

    Copy Paste (If it asks to replace than do it) the 2.1 files to the new folder which you previously created

    Now press Flash. The Tool will show you all firmwares which are stored in the FlasherFolder.

    Before you press "OK" connect your Phone in flashmode and THEN PRESS OK!

    ------------------------------END-------------------------------------

    If all done correctly you'll have a rooted eclair. the phone might be slow for the few first few minutes but it works well henceforth

    For APP2SD Read the post #3

    -----------------------------BACK DOOR ESCAPE-------------------

    If you do anything wrong your phone wont boot at all and will keep on rebooting
    Don't worry.
    Just take off your battery.
    Plug it back in
    Open SEUS follow the instructions

    THE TRICKY PART (I HATE IT)

    1. Open Regedit
    2. press Ctrl+F
    3. Type in Vid_0fce&Pid_adde
    4. Keep hitting next till you find something like this "Device Instance REG_SZ USB\Vid_0fce&Pid_adde\5&29c6398c&0&2"
    5. Copy the last digits i.e. 5&.....&2 (you may have different id)
    6. now if you go to the flasher folder you'll have a file named DEVICEID.txt
    7. paste those digits there and save it

    RUNNING THE X10FLASHER.BAT file

    double click it

    type 2 and hit enter

    type n and hit enter

    select the one you've

    THE FINALE :

    after you enter the last choice it will start searching the phone
    switch off your phone
    press the back button & plug in your usb

    it will detect and start to flash

    APP2SD (AGAIN FROM XDA)

    CREATE PARTITIONS

    SD card partitioning - XDA-Developers

    thanks to Blitz for this explanation





    THE PROCESS

    Connect your phone to your pc and mount the sd card.

    Extract all the file from app2sd2.1.zip (ATTACHED) to the root of your sd card.

    Make sure to unmount the sd card before continue the next step.

    i did feel an improvement after jit my phone, quadrant score around 500+ now n games loading quicker imo..

    i did read somewhere tht jit improves in gaming, but not so much on daily use..

    n also, after jit, when my phone on heavy load, it will restart itself automatically, thts a cons for me now tho lol

    Ok, I just read this tut. From what I understand, the methods are the same, just that in the complex one you install the x8 2.1 image via busybox (not unyaffs) and the given x8 2.1 image is different (at least by theme). :) :) So basically there are 2 different steps to take (3 vs 3-7), not 2 different methods.
  22. suhel28

    suhel28 Well-Known Member

    no they are two methods

    1. busybox method
    2. unyaffs method

    both can't be interchanged

    busybox steps wont work with unyaffs
    and vice versa

    f that, the root is whats imp lol

    Help me!
    App2sd is not working for me. Phone rooted. 2.1. xRecovery working. After installing app2sd, when I start it, it says that my sd card is not prepared. So I prepare with it. Reboot. Starting app2sd. It says the same. All over again.

    So I repartitioned with that mini program for windows from xda manual.
    Installed app2sd by adb. I think worked good. /data/apk/ shows me folder in my sd card. But app2sd still want to repartition my sd. Titanium does not show app2sd partition. Apps from market stops at "preparing to install"...

    What is wrong? I was installing on fresh 2.1 after rooting.
  25. suhel28

    suhel28 Well-Known Member

    before partitioning you need to format your card...
    and if you install app2sd properly it will show folder /system/sd/app
