No official Quby rooting for Toon2

Postby TheHogNL » Mon Aug 27, 2018 4:30 pm

Hi all,
Recently I managed to get my hands on a 2nd hand Toon2 from marktplaats. I wanted to see if I could adapt some custom apps to the Toon2 and therefore I need the Toon2 to be rooted.
I asked Quby for an official rooted toon2. With a toon1 that is possible. They ask you to send in your toon1, they will then root it in their office and send it back a few weeks later. You are left with a Toon with your own password but without any working VPN and therefore no apps which need connection to the service center.

The answer from Quby:
"Quby ondersteunt het rooten van Toon2 displays helaas niet. Dit is onder andere omdat het rooten van Toon2 veiligheidsrisico’s met zich meebrengt."
roughly translates to
"Quby does not support rooting of the Toon2 display. This is because of security risks involved with rooting the Toon2."

So that's it. No root access to the Toon2 using the official method. The security risks probably involve some hidden security features which they don't want you to know.

That means that the game is on... (if it wasn't already on). The first 2nd hand Toon2's appear on the marktplaats and it is only a matter of time before the first rooted toon2 are in the field.

Maybe that will change when Toon 2 can be rooted...

I completely missed that one.
There are still no plans for a public guide? I'm up for making a video once again, if you can provide me with a Toon2 and the rooting details.

Nope, not in the foreseeable future. If you intend to contribute to developing for toon2, guys from the TSC will be happy to root your toon2 for you. See this post:

I am still rocking with the Toon 1, but I am planning to create a solaredge app for the Toon so that you can view the stats on your Toon itself.

Maybe I'll buy a Toon2 when they are available and are a little cheaper.

Thanks!
