Step 2 : PREPARING YOUR COMPUTER FOR ROOTING

ok what I did was....


I backed up my whole system with xrecovery
Updated my phone with SEUS, naturally lost all the roots and app2sd and all
than I used this thing and got my phone rooted
installed xrecovery again
booted my phone and xrecovery worked

enough proof for me to check the root

time to go back, I just did a restore and I was back at step 1

do u have app2sd enabled?
if yes

than first create partitions in the new sdcard
than have a bck up in xrecovery
copy the xrecovery folder from the old sdcard to the new one
run xrecovery
do a restore

i think it should work

Thank you! (And now, just one question - should I change form 8GB class 2 to 4GB class 4 SD? -I mean, would it make a noticeable difference? )

Unfortunately this method doesn't work. I've made backup on one card,and tried to restore on other (partitioned),but all it does is hang on first SE logo...guess I'll be staying on my class 2 card for now.

uninstall app2sd
now remove your card and place the new card
now place the app2sd files in your new card
and run the script again
after app2sd is successful
let it reboot
if rebooting is successful than do a restore

ohh great this thing is freaking awesome. tested & worked on my Xperia x8 with 2.1 update 1. One thing i would like to tell you guys is that download the superoneclick which has been mentioned in this thread. first i tried with the latest superoneclick (v1.5.5) in sdk forums which doesnt works. It gets into a infinite loop.

@ Suhel - I must say a great work indeed. In fact all ur posts are informative in such simple language. Thanks.
I am a newbie to "Rooting" and Android in general. Have been reading forums for quite some time to understand things. I just have few questions (might be silly ones). Though I do have some idea, but still needed to be sure of.
1. If I need to go back to Stock SE 2.1, Can I just repair through PC Companion or SEUS?
2. Whats the best way to remove stock apps after rooting? Root explorer? Is deleting them equivalent to clean uninstalling?
3. What should be the class of memory card ideally to be used for app2sd? And which brand?
Thanks again

1. Yes :-)
2. Titanium backup pro can be used
3. Well any class will do, but the more higher your class the more smoother your phone will be. I've been using 8gb class 4 Sandisk :-)

Thanks for the appreciation :-)

Default Please help - doesnt work:(

I have problem. SuperOneClick stopped at "waiting for device" and nothing was happen. I wait 10 minutes, try few times, and nothing.

I install the x8 drivers before I start root

some ideas?

guys sorry for the newbie question. I just had my X8 yesterday and had it updated to Eclair 2.1 (build number 2.0.1.A.0.47) and I want to maximize my Android phone.

Im seeing a lot about this "root" thing (super noob here) and im really not sure what this is for. Sorry if this is on the wrong thread. Need your advise guys.
