    Researched for a couple days on rooting my X2 and ended up using Pete's one click which deleted the user directory :blink:. Did a factory reset, however, it did not restore the directory. Any advice on how I can restore this?


    Thanks

    you need to SBF, factory reset only deletes user data
    never had that problem, with pete's, or even heard that happening

    use [TOOL] ezSBF DX2 plus zerg root tool

    edit: 2.3.5 update (412 build) http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1391824
    1 SBF, with ezSBF disk
    2 update, if you want
    download from link move to root dir of sd card should be named update.zip
    3 root with zerg from ezSBF disk

    yes, recovery is for wiping cache/data and update.zip
    press both volume buttons to continue

    to SBF you needto be in RSD protocol support, press volume up while powering phone on
    it will just say "Starting RSD protocol support" thats it

    start RSD Lite or ezSBF

    edit: I haven't found a way out of RSD support, when not flashing SBF, have to pull battery
    if flashing SBF phone reboots when done

    error status 7, means you flashed wrong update or SBF, i think

    phone needs to be in RSD protocol support the flash SBF
    what file where you using, what system version is your phone on ie 1.3.412

    edit: you were still trying to install update 1.3.412 right?
    you need to SBF first, if you did, you may need to redownload 1.3.412 or compare md5 checksum

    System version is 1.3.380.

    Think I have to use 2.3.4 SBF before updating to 2.3.5 since X2 is stuck somewhere between root and stock. Even though I don't have SU permissions it still uses my custom boot screen leftover from rooting before doing factory reset.

    yes, factory reset may not, remove custom boot
    but SBF should, I would SBF again, wiping data before and after from Android Recovery

    did you use RSD Lite or ezSBF

    Tried ezSBF but it won't boot from USB. Not exactly clear on how RSD lite works.

    Flashing stock 2.3.4 worked great. Installing 2.3.5 from sd card seems to work; haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary yet.

    Rooting w/ zergRush says "system cannot find the specified path." Computer refuses to boot from USB drive so cannot access ezSBF, using zerg from windows desktop.


    *And phone isn't connecting to wifi or satellite.

    I got same thing that's why I used ezSBF's root

    how did you put ezSBF on usb drive?

    did you use a F-key to boot from usb drive?

    may need to change, boot order, in bios
