Hi! Sorry for writing this guide in english, my german is quite bad. It would be great if someone had the time to translate this guide to german. WARNING! By following this guide you will gain root-privileges on your LOOX-device, however, your device will be reflashed in the process. This means that ALL your data that you have added since you started using the device will be lost. Be sure to backup anything that you don't already have a backup of. 1. Download the update-tool from Odys: http://www.odys.de/downloads/drivers/Odys_Loox_Update_0924.zip (152 M) 2. Download the guide from Odys: http://www.odys.de/downloads/drivers/Loox-Updateanleitung.pdf (174 K) 3. Download the customized system.img: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15640279/system.img (138 M) 4. Unzip the update-tool (downloaded in step 1). 5. Navigate to the folder rockdev/Image 6. Replace system.img with the customized system.img (downloaded in step 3) 7. Follow the instructions in the PDF to flash it over to your LOOX. 8. After the device has gone through the reboot-cycle, download the app Superuser from the Market. All done! The below is not necessary for rooting your LOOX, it's just a explanation how the modified system.img was made. How-to make your own rooted-image for flashing (Using ubuntu) You need the su-binary compiled for ARM (Superuser) Go to the Odys-site and download the Update. cd into rockdev/Image # For working with cramfs sudo apt-get install cramfsprogs # Unpack the image to a directory called system (or whatever you want) cramfsck -x system system.img # put su in the droids /bin cp /path/to/your/downloaded/su system/bin/su # grant permission to execute chmod 6755 system/bin/su # hand over all files to root sudo chown -R root:root system # all done, repack into a cramfs-image called (change system.img to something else if you prefer not to overwrite the original) mkcramfs system system.img Now you have a rooted system-image, remember to rename it to system.img before flashing it over to the device with the Odys-software (or change the path within the tool).
