    Hello,

    As expected the 101 XS is quite easy to root. Please note that this method of exploitation has been around for some time.

    Go to some ADB shell:

    ---*---
    rm /data/misc/smb/fusesmb.conf
    ln -s /data/local.prop /data/misc/smb/fusesmb.conf
    ---*---

    Then reboot the device.

    ADB shell again:

    ---*---
    echo "ro.kernel.qemu=1" > /data/local.prop
    ---*---

    After another reboot ADB shell will drop You right into a #root shell.

    Don t forget to clean up (rm /data/local.prop; rm /data/misc/smb/fusesmb.conf) afterwards !


    nice day,


    meimei

    For those who dont know:

    On the Archos 101 XS "/system" is stored in some SQUASHFS which can be found within "androidmerged.squashfs.secure".

    So it is not possible to simply remount /system rw and copy the "su" binary !!!

    this isnt that easy.

    * first You need to extract kernel and cpio from kernel file
    * then You need to re-flash it to "sde" and enable sde menu

    * afterwards .. You could hopefully flash a rooted firmware with added su and some modified storage

    somebody has to do the job ...
