Rooting Tinji S3 MT6577 Part 1
MediaTek USB VCOM drivers
SP Flash Tool v3.1222.00.7z
USB data cable
and ofcourse the Tinji s3 mobile ;)
This is my 4shared folder you will find all the necessary files for this tutorial.
Ok here is the tutorial how to do.
We need to install mediatek drivers
this can be done in two ways
2.Downloading and Installing PDANet from here
Right Click on My Computer,
Select “Device Mangager”
Connect your mobile(without battery) to PC with USB cable
It will present as “MT65XX Preloader” with a yellow color exclamation mark under folder of Port or Other device
Right click this “Mtk65xx Preloader” do it quick! (ps: XP system MT65xx ports fleeting, Win7 system will flash all the time. What we need to do is to capture it , then right-click, if the capture fails, disconnect the mobile, reconnect it again)
Select “Update driver”)
Choose “Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)” and “Next”
Choose the right folder according to your computer system, if your OS is win 7 choose “win7”, XP os select “2K_XP_COM “ , Vista os choose “Visa” . Then click “yes”
Click “ Next”
Click “Finish”. Unplug the phone
Congratulations! Install driver successfully !!
Just download the appropriate os version and install the PDAnet with mobile switched on and connected to pc via USB cable.
Make sure you have installed properly (Dont worry about the numbers like com7 etc it may vary in your system).
Step 2. (And this same guide can be used to flash recovery, stock rom etc)
Download SP Flash Tool v3.1222.00.7z from above link and extract in your computer
Download TinjiS3Root.zip and extract in your computer
Now power off your phone and remove the battery and don't connect it to pc now.
Now Open up SP Flash Tool, you should have something like this
Load the scatter file (MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc.txt) for your device and ignore any message that may appear.
And now click download and select "yes" for the warning.
After you see that green symbol you are done.
Now your mobile will be rooted.
Next part will be coming soon adding recovery and installing custom-rom...
Attention: Please follow the instructions carefully. I will not take any responsibility on whatever may happen with your phone.
