HOW TO ROOT M-ANY CHINESE AND ANDROID PHONES WITHOUT A PC

HOW TO ROOT MANY CHINESE AND OTHER ANDROID PHONES WITHOUT A PC

Rooting many android phones can be done easily on your mobile phone. This is because you can root it by simply downloading and installing a simple application called Framaroot on your phone.

Note: This method may not work for all devices and expliot used will vary based on the chip embedded in your phone.
See Compactibility list below.

To root you android phone you have to carry out the steps below.

STEPS TO FOLLOW
1. Go to SYSTEM SETTINGS - SECURITY and select "ALLOW UNKNOWN SOURCE.
2. Go to SYSTEM SETTINGS - DEVELOPER OPTION and select "USB DEBUGGING.
3. Click here to download Framaroot 1.8.0.apk.
4. Install Framaroot application and launch it.
5. Select SuperSu by clicking on it.
6. Select Boromir as exploit by clicking on it.
7. You would be prompted to reboot your phone.
8. Reboot your phone.
9. Congratulations your Tecno M3 is now rooted.

Launch SuperSU,  go to settings  and edit your SuperSU prompt settings. I recommend "always grant superuser access".
Enjoy your rooted phone. 

Possible case once application is launched
  • A popup saying "Your device seems not vulnerable to exploit included in Framaroot", in this case you can uninstall app
  • You seeing one or more exploit name, also click on one after you have selected an action and you will see one of the above messages

Possible case once exploit is launched
  • "Success  ... Superuser and su binary installed. You have to reboot your device"
  • "Failed  ... Exploit work but installation of Superuser and su binary have failed"
  • "Half-Success :-/ ... system partition is read-only, use local.prop trick. Reboot your device and use adb to see if it run as root", happen when the filesystem in use on system partition is a read only filesystem (ex: squashfs)
  • "Failed  ... Try another exploit if available"
