General Information


  • rooting information (courtesy of mdmd):

    since the xcover root guide is still very empty I wanted to let the people know, that it works with zergRush. I used DooMLoRD_v3_ROOT-zergRush-busybox-su.zip from

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=784296&stc=1&d=1321435 888


    - The zip contains a windows runme.bat; since I am linux-only I executed the commands therein step-by-step from the cmd line, which was a good thing since:
    - the upload of SuperUser.apk to /system/app fails, because: No space left on device.... which is actually true. Pushing this apk to /data/app worked and does hopefully not reduce its functionality
