How to Root any Chinese Android running Android 4.0 ICS/4.1 JB

Here’s an easy to follow tutorial on how to root any Chinese Android device you got there. It uses the rooting script Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry, which you can find at XDA. This is confirmed working for any MediaTek MT6577 devices running Android 4.0 or up, even devices with the dual core Qualcomm S4 procie can be rooted by this as long as it is on Android 4.x.

I first tested it on rooting a Cherry Mobile Titan, and it works. On this tutorial, I had used the method on my HDC Galaxy Note 2.

First, you need to properly install the ADB drivers. To do that, you must download and install first an app called Moborobo. Link here.

After installing the app, on your phone, enable USB Debugging by going to Settings > Development.

Connect your device and open the Moborobo app. Moborobo will attempt to install the necessary drivers. Just allow it to do the changes on your computer and if it succeed, you’ll see something like this:

Moborobo can read your connected Android device

You can now exit Moborbo. Be sure to close it completely and not just minimize it on the system tray.

Download this file. Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v18_2.7z

It is the rooting script. Extract it anywhere. You’ll something like this:

Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v18_2.7z

Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v18_2.7z

Execute the RunMe.bat file if you are on Windows. A command prompt will open.

Just enter 1 as your option. It will now do its task. You’ll now see something like this on your device. Click restore and wait for the process to finish.

While on the command prompt window, you’ll see this:

Your device will restart, and if you see the SUPER SU icon on your apps drawer it means that you had successfully rooted the phone.

It is really easy on these Android 4.x devices now. I just posted this so I can just use this as reference for the queries on how to root such Chinese-made Android smartphones. While on lower version of Android, such as 2.3.6 Gingerbread, its a bit tricky as it needs some hacking with the boot.img if the SuperOneClick or UnlockRoot doesnt works. We’ll cover that up on the next update.

As they say, rooting voids the warranty but it depends on where did you buy your Android phone. Root only when you think you really have to and already know why you need to do that. On the other note, this process isnt risky and there is nothing to fear in case you messed up with the steps. Still, do this at your own risk.
