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.

Hi and thanks for this....
I just updated my phone to Android 2.1 and tried this without success...

With Android 1.6 it works perfect!....

/andreas

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 ;-).

The only way to root the phone. After all in these days all phones have at least 2.1 android. Thank you Anonymous

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

How come i cant get this to work? It even says "superuser.apk" OK and then 3 secs after it says "Device not rooted, FAILED"

McAfee found a Trojan horse "Exploit-Generic.src" in the ZIP file above...

i found his virus in your mam xD

Same here. McAfee removed a trojan.

Getting Permission denied on running the rootshell command!!
Help me plzzzzz.....

Never to do the FIRST COMMAND, I have the PC Conp. E ADB SDK.

ok basic things first
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.
many many thanks to the person who will guide me through this problem

same prob here :s anyone a solution for this?

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 !

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 =]

Shame - not working for me on 2.1

why this thing happened?i am using windows xp and xperia x10 mini pro 2.1 please help me... i am a newbies thanx in advance.. :)

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

I no understan if no live see u do that ,can u help me sand me vdeo proses to do that..pleace help me..

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.

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.

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!

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

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

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.

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.
