Important notice for all Toon2 users!

As of now we are stopping with the "free rooting" service for the Toon2.
The intention of this service was to have more developers join the community and that they could create more apps to lift the available apps in the ToonStore and to help us find more loop-holes in the Toon2's fimware and hardware.
Until now, no members with a rooted Toon2 brought in any apps for the ToonStore nor did they help us find more loopholes nor did they help us to improve our knowledge about the Toon2 in any way.

As always, there is a but...
There's still a chance that we might root your Toon2, you need to have an app created, submitted into the ToonStore and have an idea for improving that app or creating new apps.

Please contact us (TSC-team) of you have an app created+submitted and want to have your Toon2 rooted.

And to add to this, I will now reveal a part of the rooting process of a Toon 2!

Almost a year ago a few members of the forum were contacted by Eneco and Quby to test the new Toon 2. One reason for them was to have a few enthusiasts on their forum explaining the Toon 2 to the public but also to show how good they protected the new Toon 2 from being rooted.

Only one week after receiving the Toon 2 we (or actually I, but I don't want to have all credits...) managed to get root access to the Toon. You might have seen some of our posts with broken screens. But I can now tell you this was only another attempt to root a Toon on the hardware side. But...the Toon 2 rooting isn't done in hardware. The Toon 2 rooting is done using software only!

We kept this a secret for a few months to make sure our method was working for other Toon 2's also and give us time to modify all code (toonstore etc) for the Toon 2. Fun thing, three days after we succesfully rooted the Toon 2 a few members where invited at Quby's headquarters to do a Toon 2 - hack-a-toon. Hardest part was to act like we hadn't seen the Toon 2 before and didn't have root access 8)

But this is it for now. There is a specific reason why we can not reveal the method because when it is known it is so easy to fix by Eneco/Quby. And we want to make sure rooting the toon 2 is always possible, also in the future.

This also means we don't have a hardware root method yet. First of all, opening the Toon 2 is not for the weak minded. And second we haven't found the serial and/or jtag port yet on the Toon 2 (we stopped looking after we found the software method). If there are enthusiasts who want to boldy go where no one has gone before, go ahead and try to find another (software or hardware) rooting method.

Just a thought:
As you mention that the root process of a Toon2 is done by software only, assuming that both Toon1 and Toon2 share the same software (kernel/root image), doesn’t that mean that Toon1 can also be rooted the same way by software only?
If that is the case, it would same some time juggling with jtag cables etc....

From 5.0.4 the Toon1 is indeed on most part the same software as Toon2. Without revealing where we created the software hack, it is true that also the Toon1 can be rooted using the same method. However, juggling with jtag cables etc is so much easier on a Toon1 to root than using the software method.

This rooting method will not be released publicly, not for Toon2 and not for Toon1.
Using Serial and/or JTAG is the method that must be used for Toon1.

You mean Marcelr in Eindhoven? He does not root for others.
Only TheHogNL and TerrorSource(me) are doing that.
