Laugh X8 2.1 Root Add-On'S :D

IN ORDER TO RUN ADB COMMANDS IN CMD COPY
[ADB.EXE,
AdbWinApi.dll & AdbWinUsbApi.dll]

FROM YOUR SUPERONECLICK FOLDER TO YOUR
/WINDOWS/SYSTEM32



Basically 1.6 root was of no use

2.1 gives you really the benefits of your rooted phone

things it offers (thanks to the xda masters)
  1. Xrecovery
  2. App2sd
  3. JIT
  4. THEMES
  5. and many more (I know but they are quite risky, I need to try them first)

Quote:
I have no time to write my own way am just copy pasting things sorry but am no genius am just the risk taker who uses his phone as guinea pig to experiment the new mods in the xda forums and if successful posts here lol
  1. XRECOVERY - THE BEST THING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOUR PHONE

    Quote:
    [/CENTER]

    XRECOVERY DOWNLOAD

    How?
    Press BACK button few times right after white SE logo appears.


    Controls:
    Use VOLUME-UP and VOLUME-DOWN to browse, HOME to select, BACK to go back.


    Features:
    • ADB root shell
    • Reboot
    • Install update.zip from SD Card
    • Factory reset (full wipe)
    • Wipe cache partition
    • Install custom zip
    • Backup and Restore
    • Partition tools
      • Mount/unmount partitions
      • Format partitions
      • Mount as USB Storage
    • Advanced options
      • Wipe Dalvik cache
      • Wipe battery stats
      • Fix permissions for apps (FC fix)


    Manual Installation:
    - Download and unpack the recovery package
    - use Root Explorer to remount /system rw
    - copy the content of the package (3 files) into /system/bin folder


    This recovery WILL be used to flash custom roms easily.
    Quote:
    NOTES :

    #1 USE THE BUSYBOX VERSION AVAILABLE IN THE ZIP FILE, OTHER THAN THAT IT WONT WORK
    #2 AFTER YOU COPY THOSE THREE FILES YOU NEED TO SET PERMISSIONS

    THE METHOD TO DO THAT IS
    -> TAP & HOLD THE FILES INDIVIDUALLY ONE BY ONE AND CHOOSE PERMISSIONS AND TICK ALL THE OPTIONS OVER THERE


    #3 BACK UP AS SOON AS YOU SUCCESSFULLY RUN IT

    SHOULD YOU MESS UP YOUR PHONE YOU CAN USE BACKUP&RESTORE AND YOUR PHONE WILL BE BACK TO THE LAST BACKEDUP STATE... NO MORE WORRIES ABOUT FIRMWARE FLASHING VIA PC
  2. APP2SD - NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE ITS GREATNESS

    Root 2.1 *Complex* :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8G94qerkSX4&feature=related



    can u see that 174mb and I've like so many apps installed :P
  3. JIT - BOOST UR PHONE SPEED


    DOWNLOAD THIS

    STEP 1 - >

    Run -> Cmd

    type
    Quote:
    cd c:\
    type in this code
    Quote:
    adb pull /system/build.prop build.prop

    this will copy the build.prop to C:\
    PS : MAKE AN EXTRA COPY OF THIS FILE YOU'LL NEED IT LATER

    STEP 2 - >
    edit the build.prop (with help of notepad)


    find and change this:

    Quote:
    dalvik.vm.heapsize=30m
    debug.sf.hw=1
    at the end of the whole mess (yes it is):

    Quote:
    dalvik.vm.execution-mode=int:jit
    save the changes..

    STEP 3 - >

    now extract the downloaded file to SDCARD

    Quote:
    sdcard/JiT-toggle-0.1
    FOLLOW THESE STEPS

    after that you must copy and overwrite the mod built.prop (the one which you added and edited) to folder
    Quote:
    /sdcard/JiT-toggle-0.1/vmlibsv2
    and the original build.prop to
    Quote:
    /sdcard/JiT-toggle-0.1/vmlibs_stock
    LAST STEP

    enable JIT

    run->cmd
    type adb shell
    type su

    Quote:
    cd /sdcard/JiT-toggle-0.1
    sh enable_jit.sh


    and your phone will reboot with JIT enable.

    if you want to disable JIT
    Code:

    type adb shell
    type su

    Quote:
    cd /sdcard/JiT-toggle-0.1
    sh disable_jit.sh

when you type su it should show #

if it isn't than the following maybe the possibilities...

1.you haven't rooted your phone.
2. you don't have superuser installed on your phone
3. you didn't allow superuser permissions for your adb (usually when you type su a popup will appear on your phone asking permissions)

check if the folder you've extracted on your SDCARD has the same file name as the one you've typed in cmd

Partition is required as if you don't do it... your card won't mount as usb storage... the pc will recognize whole of your card as system storage :-)

Hm,I still need some help regarding
this procedure though...
Sorry,bear with me and treat me as
completely mobile illiterate!

For Apps2SD I need to do the following:

1.Format the SD Card using the PC.
2.Create Partitions.
How many? What sizes?
Which partition should I use for which use?
Should I use for example a GB for apps
and the rest 14 GB for SD storage?
3.Can I use xRecovery to create those partitions?

Thank you in advance!

1. ok, I did it by phone settings
2. 2 partitions:
a: a FAT32 - regular SD card
b: a ex2 partition, recognized by linox(&android)
3. Don't think so. Better use
SD card partitioning - XDA-Developers

Just be patient and read carefully. You can always reflash the x8 2.1 rooted image if something is wrong. Or you can make a xRecovery backup

W T F ?!? 40 min for an aswer?

LOL Just kidding!

Well,I m making partitions using MiniTool s Partition software.

The files that were already on the SD Card should be copied back to the first new FAT32 partition right?
Also the same goes for the apps2Sd script file?

@Suhel:

Nope, I just have a lot of patience and will . And let's not forget about the help you gave us.

@Blitz:

Yes. And remember that nothing from your former card is important. It creates it's necessary files by itself. Only copy music, pictures an whatever you know is important.

The ext2 partition you won't be able to see in windows. It's ok.

How about 5 min anwer?

Just did the JIT bit...
How do we know its enabled 100%?
Btw,its taking forever for the phone to boot...

PS.Suhel,thats the same for me! My first android forum right after I got this X8!
Also I must say that its really a better community than the XDA one.
Even though the devs are all over there cooking roms and all,
its still a MUCH MUCH cleaner forum here...

You'll have this problem for few boots...

For jit download Quadrant and run benchmark test...

Your CPU score should be around 500

You might have done something wrong. best solution - Flash your phone using Bi4ary flasher to 1.6 or by using SEUS.


After Rooting your phone, install Xrecovery and backup your device before you proceed to install JIT or app2sd.

bout xrecovery: sorry for these beginner's questions:

1. where can i find root explorer, in the market?
2. how do you "remount /system rw"?
3. how do you do this: "#1 USE THE BUSYBOX VERSION AVAILABLE IN THE ZIP FILE, OTHER THAN THAT IT WONT WORK
#2 AFTER YOU COPY THOSE THREE FILES YOU NEED TO SET PERMISSIONS

THE METHOD TO DO THAT IS
-> TAP & HOLD THE FILES INDIVIDUALLY ONE BY ONE AND CHOOSE PERMISSIONS AND TICK ALL THE OPTIONS OVER THERE

"

thanks for all the patience....


edit: got it already! working perfectly! my remaining problem now is jit.....since my phone froze the first time i try to jit it, i had to reflash! now im having second thoughts of continuing with the jit....

since i was able to backup successfully using xrecovery, if my jit attempt fails again, can i restore the previous state of my phone without reflashing?

1. Root explorer is a paid application in the market. There are some sites where you can download them for free but i will not recommend them until you or your parents doesn't have a credit card or paid applications isn't available in your country(you are from Philippines right?) .

2. If u use root explorer, "mount RW or RO" option will be at the top of the application itself.3. After mounting system/bin folder as RW copy those three files to system/bin.. Another busybox version will already be there in system/bin u need to replace it with the busybox version wic comes with this package. YOU JUST HAVE TO COPY AND REPLACE THE FILES.

Regarding JIT - if u want JIT, enable it. if u dont want them, disable it

I know this sounds stupid, but just a clarification: in the tutorial, jit should be enabled and disabled afterwards? does it mean that it's good for one time execution and everything goes well already? or should it be kept enabled forever to enjoy its benefits?

thanks for patiently answering.....

Nothing like that.. Just enable JIT and leave it that way. In the future if u feel u dont want JIT then open cmd and type those disable codes.

successfully jit'd my phone! got quadrant score of 521 (way better than 460+ before jit was installed!).........my mistake before was i disabled jit (i thought it was part of the process...lol) that's why my phone froze at the SE logo (but it really froze after disabling jit....many those at xda expreienced the same....maybe there's a bug somewhere there?)

thanks lokesh for patiently answering my queries!

What's the difference when using JIT and not using it? I'm still on 1.6 root and it's quite fast enough for me right now. How much fast can it be? lol

First of all, 2.1 is visibly faster than 1.6. Second, Jit increases performance in cpu demanding apps by at least 20%. I don't know what quadrand scores are based on, but Linpack checks computer processing power in mflops/s. And Linpack shows a bigger increase. Especialy on the 2nd-3rd run.

i have a question about the add ons, should i install all the add ons on you post? or i can select which one i need?

i just rooted x8 with the latest super 1 click on your thread, super user is installed

i tried to skip xrecovery and apps2sd and tried JiT first but i cant make it work.

i did this
run > cmd > cd c:\
c:\ adb pull /system/build.prop build.prop - but error it is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable command or batch file

i must not skip xrecovery > app2sd > before jit?

noob here

you have to make sure you have the android SDK tool installed...that has the adb shell file in the same directory that you want to use it.

I think I found a bug...somewhere with these addons...you must have your SD card inside your phone in order for your phone to boot...is it because Jit enabling has to be done on the SD card?

is there any prerequisite programs before doing this JiT? just what imp said? i don't have the SDK tool yet installed, is this thing got to do something?

so what i did was run > type cmd > im in command prompt now > cd c:\ to return to c:

c:\adb pull /system/build.prop build.prop

then error message appear "adb is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable command or batch file"

if you've downloaded the super one click thing you will notice three files in it

AdbWinUsbApi.dll
AdbWinApi.dll
adb.exe


copy all of them in a new folder say "adb" and place it anywhere say you placed it in c:\

now go to cmd

cd c:\adb

adb pull /system/build.prop build.prop

i hope this works
