    Bro, Thanx, Very Well

  • RonC

    Thanks, for your clear instructions! I would like very much to root my phone, using your method!

    Since there are so many phones and Android/Linux versions in circulation, I will give hardware/software details under the same name, in the my next post — to avoid confusing this one, with my question.

    OK, so far — I have done this, quoted from your directions: “Step #1:
    Download Root Explorer. and install Root Explorer to your phone.”

    RootExplorer is now on my SD card (T-card, or whatever), in a directory called ‘Downloads’. But, when I tap it, to select it, the installation aborts with the error message, “Parse Error – There is a problem parsing the package. [OK]

    I have downloaded from your link twice, same result. I have changed the extension to .zip, and now 7zip uncompresses it just fine, without indicating it’s corrupted.

    Could you please check the download, on your end, and see if you can duplicate what I see?

    I’m an Android/Linux ‘noob’ so please advise if I could be doing something else to make the file install — without seeing that error message.

    • Ammar Rashad

      Thank you for trying to root your phone using our tutorial.

      Please try downloading the root explorer from this path.

        __________________________________________________________________________

        Thanks for going to the trouble of doing this but, sorry, it still gives a parsing error and aborts before loading.

        I have installed a couple of other apps from Google Play, and these ‘went in’ without error messages. Is it possible that this version of RootExplorer wants to see a more recent Android? Please look down to Post #6, for what I just discovered, about my version number.

      • Alan Akehurst

        You my friend are a complete champion! I have tried tirelessly for months to find a way to root my spreadtrum…I had completely given up and i took one last look today and bang…in 5 minutes my phone was rooted thanks to you!! I really appreciate your detailed instructions and the work you put in for uploading this!! thanks a million

      • Agustina

        Muchas gracias, me ha funcionado a la primera.

    • Ammar Rashad

      Root Explorer is only needed to install English Version of superuser to your device.. You can root your device without installing root explorer. If you can use the Chinese version of the superuser then its ok it will not effect your root process.

  • RonC

    Post #2:
    My ‘About phone’ listing is practically identical to yours, but with a few exceptions, as follows:
    Post #2
    Android version: 4.1.2 (yours, 4.1.0)
    Software version: 6820_2.3.5_c913_jhm_e08_wqvga_4p_v03 (yours, 4.1.0_ … _dfd_notv_…)

    Other details:
    ‘M-Horse 9500 Mini 3.5 Android 4.1.1* SC6820 1.0GHz Smartphone Android Phone with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 2.0MP Camera, Capacitive Touch’ (*’About’ shows v4.1.2)

    Hope this will be helpful to others who are following your directions.

    • Ammar Rashad

      I would say you that i have tried this method personally on Android 4.1.0 and 4.1.2 using this method. Just try it.

      • RonC

        Post #2.1
        On your phone, the number following 6820 (line, Software version) is 4.1.0, same as your Jelly Bean version. This sounds good.

        But, on my phone, the number in the same location, same line, is 2.3.5. If I’m correct, isn’t this the final version number for Ice Cream Sandwich?

        Is this coincidence, or does this suggest something ‘funny’ is going on? And, I don’t mean funny, as in ha-ha … :-(

        Based on your experience, is there any concern? I ask, because I’ve heard the Android version 2.x.x series needs a different rooting method, from the 4.x.x series.

        Is the version number given in ‘Android version’ correct, nearly always, or could there be an exception? Just making sure … :-|

        • Ammar Rashad

          Looks like its showing fake android version.
          Basically you are having 2.3.5 and its showing you 4.1.2
          You can edit your build.prop to make it show different android version in about phone.

            Post #2.2

            Two questions, please:

            1) Would you advise I use a third way, to check for sure, to confirm it’s _really_ v2.3.5? I ask only because right now, it’s showing two choices. Or, from what you know of Android, does what’s in the ‘Software Version’ line take precedence over the ‘Android Version’ number?

            2) If there’s no doubt after seeing the ‘Software Version’ line, and you think it’s _really_ v2.3.5, and if I follow these directions, will it a) just ‘not work’ — and leave me with an ‘unrooted’ phone, or, b) maybe cause some damage?

            What would you do if you saw this on one of your phones, but still wanted to root it?

            You’re the expert here — what do you advise?

  • RonC

    Post #3
    About my Post #1, I checked to make sure the filename was ‘exactly’ _RootExplorer.apk_ — and it is.

    A search shows the name may make a difference, something I didn’t know.

    In Post #2, I notice my Android version number is slightly different than yours. Could this be causing a problem?

    If you have no other ideas, would it be the path of least resistance to suggest a ‘second-choice app’ for a root-capable file manager?

  • RonC

    Post #4
    M-Horse has already installed a file manager in my device: ES File Explorer. Since you’re recommending a root-capable file manager, I looked into this utility’s Context Menu, to see what was there.

    Under ‘Other Settings’ I’m finding this: Root settings – Read, Write as Root privileges.

    Then going down one level, below that, we have check boxes for: Root Explorer (only for rooted devices); Up to Root (Enable up to root directory); Mount File System (Mount /./ system as writable); Backup System App (Backup system app before uninstall).

    Is _ES File Explorer_ adequate, so I could just use this utility, instead of the one that won’t install? Or, should I install something more capable, now, before following more directions?

    • Ammar Rashad

      ES File Explorer works as Root File Manager but it also require a Root Explorer installed on your device.

      If downloading root explorer from other link doesnt work then, Ask me i can suggest you some other method.

  • RonC

    Post #5

    Ammar, please don’t take any time on #2.2, unless you see something new, that I’m missing.

    I loaded this site in the phone’s browser:
    http://whatismyandroidversion.com/
    and that page displays the OS as _Jelly Bean v4.1.2,_ the same as the advertised specs.

    I’m beginning to suspect, what I see in _Software version_ may be the firmware version, and the operating system version. Tomorrow I’ll follow your suggestion, to download _RootExplorer_ from the second link you gave, and see if I can then go to the next step.

  • RonC

    Post #6

    With reference to Post #2.2:
    Reference to Ammar’s post of September 16, 2013
    I have just confirmed what you wrote here is correct, and 2.3.5 must be Android, not firmware, version number.

    I found a third way of confirming the my phone’s true Android version. The Easter Egg opens to show an image identical to this —
    http://i.crackedcdn.com/phpimages/article/2/5/8/161258.jpg?v=1. I am sure the Easter Egg is coded into the OS and so would be very difficult/impossible to ‘fake’.

    Now the second question, repeated here from Post 2.2, is very relevant.

    “2) If … you think it’s _really_ v2.3.5, and if I follow these directions, will it a) just ‘not work’ — and leave me with an ‘unrooted’ phone, or, b) maybe cause some damage?”

    New Question: Assuming you’ve ever rooted v2.3.5, do you recommend I use some different method? I realize the method you describe is for v4.1.x, not what I have.

    I think you will say ‘yes’ — but I’m the ‘Android Noob’ here, so if you would suggest I do something else, that will be appreciated.

    If you could just name, or give a link for whatever you think is the best method for v2.3.5, that will be enough — no directions necessary.

    • Ammar Rashad

      Just give this method a try. If you are not going to get succeed, I will be making a diffrent tutorial which is going to work.

    • RonC

      OK, thanks for offering to help with rooting Gingerbread.

      How about if I next get the USB driver, or drivers, working for the devices that appear in Device Manager, when I turn on Debugging Mode.

      Under Other Devices, Device Manager lists Spreadtrum phone on three consecutive lines, all with an exclamation point in front. All normal so far? I wasn’t expecting three devices … there’s only one line under Portable Devices, and that devices, and that is working, with a driver from the operating system being automatically (and correctly) applied.

      The three Spreadtrum lines are OK and as expected? Will they all work after manually installing the same driver on each? I made some earlier attempts to do this, but Device Manager says it doesn’t see a valid driver when I do this.

      I’ll start trying drivers according to your directions and see if I have better luck, this time.

      • Ammar Rashad

        Open rootmaster while your phone is connected to PC.
        If it shows you a green sign its mean your phone is compatible to root with rootmaster if it shows red sign it mean that your phone is not compatible.. And if it doesn’t detects any phone then you have not installed drivers correctly.

  • RonC

    Post #7

    Progress –

    RootMaster was installed.
    Spreadtrum Sci USB2Serial driver version 1.4.4.8 installed –
    By running Install.bat (I am wondering if the .exe is better?)

    Now following your directions, I see a new device near the top of the list in Device Manager:
    Android Device -> ROMaster Composite ADB Interface.

    OK, RootMaster is now showing a display (almost) identical to your figure for Step #4:

    (circle-check-mark)
    ?? SPHS ROOT [string of Chinese characters (another longer string, of the same)]

    These are strings are not the ‘blocky’ symbols in your diagram #4, but ‘real’ Chinese characters — probably OK?

    The bottom edge of the last RootMaster screen (with the check-mark) does _not_ have a button labeled ‘Root’ (your figure #4 does) but only a green button, with Chinese characters.

    I assume this means ‘Finish’ or ‘Close’, so I clicked the green button, hoping this will terminate the utility.

    There are still two identical entries in Device Manager, each named as follows:

    [!] Other devices -> Spreadtrum phone

    The devices on these two lines will not accept a driver, if I use the same directory (with the folder from your driver-download link) that worked for the first. (?)Will this lead to problems later on — or should I just ignore it?(?)

    =>> OK, what next? <<==

    I don't know if I should go ahead with the next step (#5), since we now know that I have a _different_ Android version on my phone, than you do.

    Bear in mind — the parsing error has prevented installation of the RootExplorer utility (several times, using both of the downloads you gave).

    • Ammar Rashad

      If you have successfully rooted it. And you are having a Chinese Version SuperUser then use it. As you are unable to get rootexplorer. It have the same functionality as English Version Super User.

      • RonC

        Yes, you are correct. I now have an icon named ‘Superuser’ on the Desktop.

        But I am confused about why you call this is a Chinese version: when I click this Icon, there are a few Chinese character on the flashscreen — but this is visible for less than a second.

        After that, everything is in English, as copied below —

        Superuser (Rooted)
        Permission | Log
        System optimize
        Upgraded
        Clean up systemic Application
        Root management

        Is there a ‘Chinese version’ somewhere else? Am I clicking the wrong Icon??

        • RonC

          Question, on the last item of the Superuser menu, that reads as follows:

          RootManagement >
          rootmanager

          When I click the word ‘RootManagement’, it brings up a page that displays the following:

          < Root
          ______________________________________

          (!)
          The application of is not authorized.

          We have only a white, blank page with a circled exclamation point, followed by the above line of text. What could be 'not authorized' — since everything indicates I am now running as 'root'??

          Is this normal operation for this utility? Any comments on what I see will be appreciated!

  • RonC

    Correction — I now see a RootMaster screen 100% identical to your illustration for Step #4.

    I clicked the single green button, the screen reloaded once or maybe twice, and I now have the white/clear background [Root] button, with the green {Chinese characters] to its right.

    You didn’t say to do anything with the [Root] button, so instead of clicking on that, I’m just just going to close that window with the [X] in its upper-right corner.

    OK, thanks for all this, so far. What do I do next?

    • Ammar Rashad

      I’m glad that you have rooted your phone.. If you are have problems with SuperUser. Don’t follow the Step #5. And use the Chinese version of the superuser. As i am also using chineese app.

        OK sorry for the confusion.
        You’re saying, that icon, Superuser, _is_ the ‘Chinese version’ — even though the app it opens is fully translated into English. I thought I was supposed to be looking for an app of that name, that had _only Chinese characters_ in it, my mistake.

        If this is right, then this question is solved.

  • Nitin

    I have followed all the procedures the phone showed a right green sign (means phone rooted) then i installed Root Explorer and everything went as you have shown, then i installed superuser.Apk now when i am opening superuser (will be called SU herein after) it shows under Apps, “No apps in list”

    Now since i wanted to delete few preloaded applications i went to Root Explorer and from there /system/app and selected the app and copied the same to SD card and then deleted the facebook.apk file, the file was deleted but i was unable to move it to sd card moreover i was surprised to see taht after deleting a file of 3.5MB not even a 1MB was added to free space ??? i want lots of free space what should i do ??? pl. help and yes one most important thing this is my 1st Android phone so i am absolutely fresher to all this, hence pl. tell in detail and with snap shots as you’ve done earlier

    • Ammar Rashad

      If you have successfully rooted your phone then goto root explorer system/app long-press the application which you want to delete. A menu will open and you can delete the application.

      You should Mount R/W before deleting any app from this step.

  • Nitin

    Rashad Bhai i have rechecked it by connecting it with the computer and running that chinese root programme it showed a right mark in a circle in white colour, it showed my mobile with green screen againg with right mark and my phone’s name SKING i just closed the program as everything is in chinese which is unable to understand, what do you mean by “you should mount R/W before deleting any app from this step”

    earlier i long pressed facebook and it gave options copy, move delete etc i tried to move it to sd card but it did not worked so i deleted it the application size was 3.5MB and even after deleting it i could not see my sapce increased in phone it is still showing that same memory low message and no addition to free space have been noted i deleted youtube and facebook both, kindly help

    • Ammar Rashad

      I’m glad that you have rooted your phone.. If you are have problems with SuperUser. Don’t follow the Step #5. And use the Chinese version of the superuser.

  • Nitin

    i want to increase both teh RAM and internal memory of this phone but i am trying link2sd and it says /data/sdext2 mount not found kindly help or suggest me a better and simple way to increase the RAM and internal memory of the phone by sharing it through external micro SD card

  • Nitin

    i have downloaded link2sd but it says root access denied ?? how come root access is denied when i have already rooted my phone ??

    • Ammar Rashad

      I will do a tutorial for u in the coming days for increasing internal memory and ram. Till then keep checking the blog.

  • Nitin

    i already deleted teh other super user that was there, i gues it was teh chinese super user, but even if it was there understanding chinese language was impossible, now my first question can i reinstall the chinese SU which gaot installed during rooting ?? will it have english language ?? and how to install it and use it

  • Nitin

    kindly clarify in detail the Step #2:

    “Install Drivers for your Phone.”

    i have downloaded the driver on my desktop but i am unable to install in on my phone, this is what i did :

    Computer> Properties> Device-Manager> Other-Devices> Spreadtrum Phone> (Here i can see 02 Spreadtrum Phones with exactly same name) Right Click> Update Driver Software> Browse> C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\Spreadtrum Sci USB2Serial driver version 1.4.4.8> Next>

    a new window pops up which says : windows could not find driver software for your device.

    Tried again n again but same result :( kindly help

  • Nitin

    A funny thing happened last night i was trying with all the procedures and available in the market and it blocked the incoming calls on my mobile i could make outgoing calls but was not receiving any calls, then in the afternoon i pressed “Factory Data Reset” the FB and Youtube applications are not there now, i thought that i might have lost the root as well so i reconnected to root my phone but surprisingly it showed my phone rooted with the right sign :) hence now i am retrying the whole thing may be it may work now, hence pl. clarify step #2

  • RonC

    Now that I know I’m running the right app — or, the Superuser app that’s completely translated into English is the ‘Chinese version’ — so we’re talking about the same utility, could we once again take a look at this? I’m assuming the RootManagement menu selection is important, and something I have to use? Or, not??

    • Ammar Rashad

      Just reroot it everything will be fine.. I am still using chineese version..

      When you are asked for a root access just click right button like in the step # 5.

    • RonC

      OK, thanks! Let me put this together to make sure I understand:

      RonC wrote:
      ” I’m assuming the RootManagement menu selection is important, and something I have to use? Or, not??”
      Ammar implied:
      Yes, it is important to make this functional and you can do this, as follows.
      Ammar wrote:
      “Just reroot it [go back and run RootMaster again] and everything will be fine. … When you are asked for root access in Step #5, click the red-border button [on the right side].

      However, in Step #5, before the red-border button is clicked, the directions say, “Disconnect your phone from the computer. Now open RootExplorer. …”

      The way it reads, the red-border button must be running in RootExplorer?

      Bear in mind — _a parsing error has prevented installation of the RootExplorer utility_ … . Since I can’t install this utility, the direction to ‘now open’ it … could be difficult-to-impossible, if I follow your thought?

      I think … did you offer to give an alternative to RootExplorer? And, then could I complete Step #5? Please clarify, if I’m misunderstanding.

        Ammar wrote:

        but, also on September 20, 2013
        “If you are have problems with SuperUser. Don’t follow the Step #5.”

        Sorry, I am confused. What is the ‘other method’? Is that simply ommitting trying to install RootExplorer, and then disregarding the first September 20 post, above?

        By the way, on the Step #4 screen, which button is pressed to terminate the program, at that point? ‘Root’ or the one to its right? Or none of the above, use the ‘X’ in the window’s upper right corner? I’m of course assuming it makes a difference, to exit correctly …

        • RonC

          OK, in reading through the Comments once again, I think Ammar is saying to repeat the steps to root, but stop at the end of Step #4, since Step #5 assumes the app that gives a parsing error installed successfully, and one cannot run that which has not been/cannot be installed.

          I still do not see the correct method of getting out of the final window where Ammar says ‘Voila! you’re done!’. There’s a running program on the system at this point that has to be terminated or exited, usually done by clicking a button, but both of the buttons are labeled entirely, or partly, in Chinese characters — so, how to choose which one?

  • Nitin

    Drivers are not getting installed on my phone :( what to do ???

    • Ammar Rashad

      LOL :P You have to install drivers on your computer for your phone :P Not on your Phone :) Use PDAnet drivers if probem not solved search for your phone’s driver on the internet.

      • Nitin

        :p :D i already told you i am new to all this stuff :P hahahahaha rofl

      • Nitin

    Windows 7 Issue -> Better on Windows XP

    Dear Ammar, you are such a genius man!!! It works just as you said.
    I was over a week trying to Root that phone… Thanks a lot!!

    Just a comment about the propoer drivers for the phone: I’ve downloaded and installed tons of drivers, and after much pain, could establish an ADB with the phone, but always remain some unrecognized devices under Windows 7, and other Rooting Methods fail over the ADB too. I´ve tried on 32 and 64 bits, with different results, but always not fully recognized and well installed.

    The solution: Install a Windows XP on a Virtual Machine (with Oracle Virtual Box), then install the Extension Pack, and in the Virtual Machine enable USB driver, and USB 2.0 (EHCI), and finally set up a new filter, without any restriction. That way, when you plug your phone in, the Oracle VM takes the control and the drivers could be installed in the guest OS.
    The drivers that work for are refered as “Spreadtrum Sci USB2Serial driver version 1.4.4.8″ you can Google they. I ran the Install.bat that comes with the package, and had some error and failure report, but then, whene de New Hardware Found comes up, pointed to the folder containing the Drivers, over an over again (actually are 5 or 6 devices recognized) and it works just fine.

    Sorry for this comment level… I know this could be some noob, and my english is so bad too; but I only wish to contribute after being so helped by you! Thanks again!!

  • RonC

    Sorry, but the answer to this must be somewhere, where I can’t see it! Do you mind trying once again? The question is now in the last line in this post.

    We have only a white, blank page with a circled exclamation point, followed by the above line of text. What could be 'not authorized' — since everything indicates I am now running as 'root'??

    Question: Is this normal operation for this utility? Any comments on what I see will be appreciated!

  • Erhan T.

    Thanks for your good instruction. I rooted my device clearly. But i want to ask you a question. How can i change the imei number?

    • Ammar Rashad

      Thank You :) You can’t change your phone’s IMEI number untill you replace its motherboard.

  • Collins

    I really appreciate it

    • Ammar Rashad

      Thank You :)

    My last question appears to have resolved itself. Not sure why, but it looks normal now, and that refers to:
    ________________________________________________________________________
    Question, on the last item of the Superuser menu, that looks like this:

    RootManagement >
    rootmanager

    Formerly, hen I click the word ‘RootManagement’, it brings up a page that displays the following:

    < Root
    ________________________________________________________________________

    The above 'blank page' is now filled with text choices, and the cryptic error message (authorized? authorized by whom, or by what?) is gone and now there are are the names of three apps (or possibly, their installers) that were giving me installation problems. I say, 'installers' because at least two of these apps Failed to completelyinstall.

    The formerly blank page now lists: CacheMate for Root Users; Busybox Installer and BusyBox Free. Clicking on each name now gives a bar with three buttons: Allow; Interactice; Refuse.

    I've no idea what the buttons let you do, but this is better that a blank screen with an untelligible error message and now I'll have to research what each selection does.

  • John

    Thanks Ammar, I have rooted my phone but i did not do any back up of apps before deleting.
    also root explorer did not install on my phone so i copied superuser to my SD and installed it to my phone. Though is working, the icon of super user is blue and the green one does not seem to be functioning.

    Also How can i install a 4.0.4 OS on my phone, and other apps.

  • Gabriel Moura

    bie.

  • Mauricio

    Thank you Ammar Rashad your method worked perfectly for my hpsd on hsdroid ( spreadtrum 6820)

    I didn´t use the Superuser.apk you suggested. Instead I´ve use the chinese version at first and then installed an updated version of ES File Explorer which has root capabilities and I recommend.
    Thanks again
    Mauricio.

    PD some user wants me to give him a copy of this phone´s firmware How can I do that?
    Thanks

  • Atik_Rana

    Thanks for nicr directions. I have rooted my phone as u instructed,it was successfull and also superuser worked. but somehow my pull down menu,signal bar icons and call alert display gone. but other functions working properly. I just cant see who is calling and no recive and end options,just the phone rings. during incoming call i can access any menu options and application but just cant recive calls. cant see network signal bars,pull down menu,date,time on my desktop. I have tried to unroot for sever times using rootkeeper,supersu,ginger unroot and rooted,factory setting default. But nothing worked.

    whatever i do superuser comes back of its own and still my phone malfunctioning.

    I hav also checked firstboot(every useless steps),all pass. I dont have any backup.

    plz help me out if you can.

  • Maria

    i have a question can we install cyanogenmod in spreatrum SC6820?

    • Ammar Rashad

      No the Spreadtrum devices are not officially listed :)

  • ravi kishore

    thanks bro.it’s working.

  • Wachjohn

    Dear Ammar,
    Thank you for this nice article. I followed it and deleted the chinese superuser, but the english I installed did not work, as it was not granted root access. Root explorer worked well though. I went through the process again, and rootmaster updated to a newer version. Root checker confirms I have root access, but superuser can still not get root access. Root explorer navigates, but has lost the ability to read/write. What do you think I should do next?
    ———–
    An update on this. After trying several times, I was finally able to completely root my phone. I am still using the Chinese Superuser, and it is working fine.
    Thank you for all your help

    • http://www.thetechnosquad.com/ Ammar Rashad

      Hello,

      Thank you for appreciating my tutorial :) When you install the English version of Superuser make sure you copy the bin/su files to your phone. I am using the Chinese version of superuser.

      • Wachjohn

        Thanks. In what folder do I copy the bin/su files? Now that root explorer has lost read/write functionality, will this be possible? How can I get back this functionality for root explorer?
        Thank you for all your help

        • http://www.thetechnosquad.com/ Ammar Rashad

          Re-root it to get the access. I think you should use Chinese version.

          • Wachjohn

            I have factory reset the phone, then gone through the whole process again. Root explorer still cannot read/write, but when I use Root Checker it confirms I have root. Root Explorer did not prompt me for root permission, so it must be using the former status. Rootmaster has also installed an application in my phone which I don’t know, as it is all in Chinese. This is for the updated rootmaster, since the one which you gave the link to did not install anything. Do you know which program this is, or I should just uninstall it? It seems to be necessary for the rooting process, since every time I uninstall and go through the process rootmaster installs it again. On the hand, do you know where I can get a copy of the Chinese Superuser? Maybe if I install it it will grant root access to other applications?
