Started: April 3 2013
Goal: To use the UHF transmitter on the Runbo-X5 Android phone as a SDR
Who: Ardillo
Active task: Getting root rights on device

Description

The Runbo X5 Android smartphone is a normal Android 4.0 phone with some strange features. The most important for users is that it is an IP-67 graded device which means it can be submersed in water and you can drive over it. It also has a built-in laser and Walkie Talkie. Wait.. a what? A Walkie Talkie, it works on the UHF band between 400-470 MHz. After reading this feature I was curious about the possibility's. Maybe we can use this to hack some KlikAanKlikUit systems or build a SDR-system with it. The Runbo has WiFi, Bluetooth and some other standard things as well.

Rooting

I followed this guide for unrooting the device. For rooting the device I first had to get adb working. Luckily nowadays Android gives you an ADT bundle for Linux. After unzipping the adb package is at the extract location in map Android/sdk/platform-tools. For listing all devices connected you have to execute command:

 ./adb devices </blockquote>

But instead of listing the devices I saw question marks. After so somehow the device wasn't recognized. I made an file /etc/udev/rules.d/50-android.rules en put the information below in it. I found the Vendor ID after running 'dmesg'.

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev" 

After that the device was recognized as 'Runbo' with the './adb devices' command.
