Root for X10 mini (pro)

This hack http://c-skills.blogspot.com/2010/07/android-trickery.html is almost universal.
I've compiled and tested a version for X10 mini.
Download: exploid_x10mini.zip
- download and extract the archive...

You will need ADB from Android SDK and USB drivers for X10 mini (part of Sony Ericsson PC Companion).
Enable USB debugging on the phone in Settings>Applications>Development and connect the phone to PC via USB.
Add the Power Control widget to your active widgets on the phone, so you can quickly turn off and on the wi-fi function.
From the command line (on windows it's cmd.exe):
cd c:\exploid_x10mini (or another folder where you've extracted the files from exploid_x10mini.zip)
adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk
adb push su /sdcard/su
adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid
adb push busybox /sqlite_stmt_journals/busybox
adb shell
cd sqlite_stmt_journals
chmod 755 exploid
chmod 755 busybox

Immediately after the next command, you will need to disable and enable the wi-fi using the power widget on the phone:
./exploid
then run:
rootshell
enter password rootnow
prompt will change to # - now we have root
./busybox cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/
./busybox cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/
./busybox cp busybox /system/bin/
chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
rm /system/bin/rootshell
exit
- out of rootshell
exit - out of adb shell

Verification:
When you run the abd shell again and issue su command, the Superuser.apk will run on the phone and will ask whether to allow the root permissions...

EDIT: your possible questions might be already answered on the XDA forum.

I guess that your help was one of the reasons I matched. Your support and inspiration kept me going. If my schoolmate didn’t recommend me to buy Informal essay, I wouldn’t have graded university with A+.

Good article, and a pretty fantastic showcase... I think should be opportunity for someone to vote on particular comments. For example These crew are respectable research papers writing company on the planet. They delivered the essays to me on time. I will eternally buy Informal Essay from this company.

It is obvious that university students don't have got big amounts of cash to spend for academic writing. This is a stuff to become embarrassed. It can be simpler to Buy Essays. Moreover, it can be a superb way to save cash!

answer this topic

It takes very long time to reach a writing skillfulness. But in some situations, some guys have no time.

Some time before, I did need to buy a car for my firm but I didn't earn enough cash and couldn't buy something. Thank heaven my mother suggested to take the credit loans from banks. Thus, I did that and was satisfied with my collateral loan.

ROOTING XPERIA X10 MINI PRO

Im using sony ericsson xperia x10 mini pro, i want to root my device and when i try to use the above cmd line arguments it shows adb is not valid command... currently im using android 2.1. please help me out to root my device

ADB not found! = Set the Path in Windows

1. Install the Android SDK.
2. Locate the ADB executable ( should be in "SDK/platform-tools" dir )
3. Add the Path found in #2 to the Windows environment.
4. Reboot your computer.

adb push exploid

adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid
adb push busybox /sqlite_stmt_journals/busybox "adb: permission denied" - somebody please help me, it keeps denying everything

Tips and Tricks

This seems like it works well for a lot of people. Do we have verification of this working with 2.1 phones also, or just 1.6? I am in the $ shell and when I try to run < rootshell > I get a "permission denied" before I have a chance to enter a password. I tried running < rootshell > with an argument < -p > to include password but that did not work.

Any tips and tricks out there to get this to function on a 2.1 phone? I think the 2.1 update must have changed something?

Thanks all!

rootshell & password

finally it works to the line who i must type "./exploid" ... after this it works nothing ... note : the adb is locatet in ...\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\ !!!

i use a xperia x10 mini pro - android 2.1

if i type rootshell - the answer is the same : "rootshell: permission denied"

plz help me ... i want to delete these "FUCKING APPS" who's installed by Sony Ericsson ... like facebook, playnow, timescape, office suite, peggle, youtube, etc ... also i want to install WeTravel so i need to install Java on the fone ... otherwise it will not work ... thanks.

Android 1.6 or 2.1

It worked for me with Android 1.6, but after the SonyEricsson update I lost root privileges.
Now I doesn't work with 2.1. This could be the problem.

PATH ...

Change your path ... in my case: SET PATH=C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools;%PATH%

Shame - not working for me on

Shame - not working for me on 2.1

Worked perfectly... just a few things

FYI...

Do not mount the SD Card to the PC that way you won't be able to copy the files to the SD Card. You would be able to perform the first steps even if you mounted the SD Card to the PC but not the further steps where you need to copy from the SD Card to the phone's memory.

I successfully rooted my phone... I really hope you can to =]

thanks a bunch

thanks man =D
I've finally rooted my X10 mini pro 1.6
worked perfectly fine , but first it looked a bit confusing .
And if any1 gets the permission error , you should try to disable/enable USB debugging !

im using win.7 (64)
my phone is xperia x10 mini pro (u20i)
i have SE PC compan.
i have all the drivers
i have all the files
all the files are on the phone and in the right plase
i kno how to use cmd ;P

ok i got most of it so far i just har a problem with "./exploid"

"Immediately after the next command, you will need to disable and enable the wi-fi using the power widget on the phone:
./exploid
then run:
rootshell
enter password rootnow
prompt will change to # - now we have root"

ok i am stucked at "./exploid" because it never makes the file "rootshell" so when i type rootshell it says "rootshell: permition denied"
and i've tryed to type "./rootshell" instead to se if that worked.. it only said "./rootshell: not found"

i would like to get a detailed explernation to how i can fix this problem.

HELP update

hey how do you update the android to 2.1 from 1.6 on x10 mini pro??

Doesn't work for 2.1.

For 1.6 this method is great. For the recent 2.1 update you'll have to look for SuperOneClickv1.5.1.zip, for rooting your telephone. Works fine for me ;-).

Real solution

Problem after reboot

Hey man,

I have some problem, I followed this tutorial http://www.xperiax10.net/2010/08/09/exploid-root-method-for-xperia-x10-t... and I got root. But after i reboot my Xperia X10, the command su has gone. When I digit su in adb shell, this message arrive (su: unknown user root). I tried to repeat all the steps, but didn't work again. I have a Xperia X10a, and I need some help.

How do I make my X10 visible for adb?

I never had any problems connecting to my Nexus One, but I can't communicate with my X10 using the same USB cable, same computer (Linux BTW), and same software. I've turned on developer mode in the application settings on the X10 but I can't get it to talk to the X10. I can see

S: Manufacturer=Sony Ericsson
S: Product=Sony Ericsson USB Device

in /proc/bus/usb/devices, but trying to communicate with it I only get:

adb -d shell
error: device not found

Re: got it

I had not turned USB debugging properly on. Now it works and I can upload my own applications.

would just like to say...

the above worked (perfectly on the third or fourth try).

big problem

how can we install apps on SD CARD on x10 mini pro?

doesn't make sense to me

I can only get to

c:\exploid_x10mini

and then I can't get any further. I'm not sure if I have ADB from Android SDK running in the way I should. I don't know what it's supposed to be like

when I try to enter
adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk
it says it is not recognized

thanks

Full path

try to enter full path as c:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk-windows\tools\adb Superuser.apk /sdcard/Supersuser.apk
follow this each time! i know its hectic! but worked for me!

Su --> Permission Denied

It's done. I already complete the first tutorial... But in test (typing su) i got the message PERMISSION DENIED.
I already try the suggest sollutions: Turn Wi-fi on/off... change the type of conection (charge or files)...
What should I do to get root access?
I want to uninstall factory apps!! =S

thanks! *-*................. MARK

already charge only.

I have already turn x10 mini pro to charge only mode, and the SDcard is free for the mini pro. But when I type "adb devices", but the stuff didn't show on the devices list. I have no idea for that. Please help me....=_=!

re: already charge only.

The sequence must be strictly adhered to; i.e., before connecting the phone to the PC, PC Companion must be running, phone must already be in debug mode. Then connect the devices and select "charge only". Otherwise, the ADB device from PC Companion won't be called up. Anyway, if the phone has enough memory, I guess you can just push everything to "sqlite_stmt_journals" and not worry about the "charge only" step.
