If you guys grabbed a MyPhone A818 from My|Phone’s Trade-in madness promo then that’s already a steal! Now you want to root it? Rooting allows you to maximize your use and make the most out of your Android smartphone so its not a bad decision. Reports say that a lot of MyPhone A818 users are able to root their handsets just by using SuperOneClick, seems just like rooting Alcatel One Touch 918N.
Here’s the instructions on how to root MyPhone A818 Duo:
Disclaimer: I am not responsible on whatever damage may happen on your device. Do this at your own risk. :P
First off, you need to install the Google USB Drivers. You can get that by installing Android SDK on your machine and browsing on the Extras section, from there you can install the needed drivers.
After that, disable your Anti-virus on your machine or other similar programs. This will mess up the rooting process as it deletes or blocks some files and processes of what we are trying to do.
Download and install SuperOneClick.
You can get it from these links:
Before you connect your A818 device on your PC, be sure to enable USB Debugging. You can check how it was done from my last post: Rooting LG Optimus L3. Or just refer to the image below:
^it may not be the same but that is the settings we are talking about here.
Then connect your device on your PC. Run the SuperOneClick app then click on the ROOT button that you can see.
^you should be seeing something like that on your screen. Reports say that the rooting process only takes 30 seconds to 1 minute.
That’s it! Enjoy your rooted MyPhone A818!
