    Thanks for the good tutorial! I've been waiting for a long time for a good method/tutorial for rooting my S5690 Xcover.Thank you very much,will try it tomorrow!


    Rooted my Xcover using this method without problems.Rooting is done very quickly.
    To access the Xcover's recovery menu you have to press: VOL UP + HOME + POWER.

    Ok. Thanks for the quick reply :) I just wanted to know if anything inside it is updated or not besides the supported models. You're doing a good job ;) Keep it up!

    I would like to ask a question. Does this method of rooting modify something in my ROM?
    I would like to know because my phone is brand new and it's in warranty and I would like to keep it as stock as possible,besides the rooting of course :)

    Ok i'm rooted but only half way.
    I'm only r/o in root explore I have tried this method so many times both root
    and unroot. un roots ok and no errors during root; comes to the end and says complete sucess etc.
    Here,is what i have tried so far
    zergRush -> failure
    DooMLoRD_v 3 and 4 and
    xdx forum on x cover s5690 root
    My phone runs the following :
    baseband: S5690XXKL1
    kernel: official.alkon@androide #23
    version number: GINGERBREAD.XXKL1
    bootloader: Android System Recovery <3e>

    I don't want to use kies /odin3 /superonclick as these methods bricked my last x cover .

    I have read of a script clean up on other forms but dont know how to apply it as i'm not a programer . Rooting this phone with the above firmware seems to be a problem .
    The sd update seems to be the simplest method I have com across.
    Hope you have a fix for this I do respect the good work from programmers .

    Works very easy. But is it possible to move facebook and other none system based applications to sd-card?
    Have tried SD Maid, App 2 SD, and 1 tap Cleaner.
    But still in a way the phone use the internal memory to the apps that lies on the sd-card. Now I have only 14 MB left on internal memory (getting a warning).

    Anyone who knows how to fix this, pleas help me!

    An example of a none system based application: Facebook.
    The program is located on sd-card but it seams that some part of the application is stored on the internal memory (when it is not running), which is a problem for me because my total internal memory is not to great; only a total of 165.16 MB, and the most of it is used for the system.
    It is not possible to move the hole program to sd-card, why? Any fixes to this problem?:adore:

    Have also cleared cache-storage and other temporary data.

    / Very grateful for this root method, thanks.
    / Thanks in advice

    Now everything is fixed for Xcover it should work on all models

    Root is just the start you need to make external partition on your SD card and install Link2SD

    baseband: S5690XXLA2

    I'm total n00b in phonehacking and rooting so I'm propably missing something really obvious here.

    I'm having a lot of issues rooting:
    Superoneclick returns klogctl operation not permitted and fails the root.
    I've downloaded the and files and transferred them on my sd card. When I try to get in the recovery mode (vol up + home + power) I end up in boot loop. If I press (vol down + home + power) I end up in "odin mode" and the phone does nothing.

    Android version: 2.3.6
    Baseband: 5690XXLG3
    Kernel: official.alkon@androide #6
    Build number: GINGERBREAD.XXLG3

    Thanks in advance
