rooting

Rooting works with baidu root, version 2.4.6 (at the moment available only in Chinese). I tried framaroot and towelroot, none of them worked.
The root is permanent and stays after a reboot.
After rooting install SuperSU instead of the Chinese root Permission program. Then you can remove all the Chinese programs (one of them displays Chinese ads in the status bar).



installing custom recovery and ROM

Connect the phone to your computer and install adb and fastboot
apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot

Test the connection by running adb shell, you should get a shell on your phone. The first problem is that several tools for installing a recovery recognize the recovery as TWRP, but cannot update it or install the correct recovery. # fastboot flash recovery recovery.img sending 'recovery' (9542 KB)... OKAY [ 0.337s] writing 'recovery'... FAILED (remote: partition 'recovery' not support flash) finished. total time: 0.346s The only solution that worked for me was installing the recovery.img by hand on the phone itself. But a recent custom recovery is needed to install the custom ROM, wipe the dalvik cache and other things. # fastboot update Cyanogen-VX.zip archive does not contain 'android-info.txt' archive does not contain 'android-product.txt' error: update package has no android-info.txt or android-product.txt reboot to bootloader adb reboot bootloader when the phone has booted into fastboot unlock the bootloader (I don't know if this is really necessary, please give feedback) fastboot oem unlock and follow the instructions on the screen (so obviously it was locked before and unlocking was successful) connect to the phone adb shell become root su Download the TWRP archive from the linked page on .... and extract the recovery.img). Next get the recovery.img for TWRP to the phone. On one of the pages I found on the net they use adb push recovery.img /destination-folder/ but for me this did not work, because when becoming root with su I could not read the contents of the folders where I could push the file to. So the quick and easy way for me was to download the recovery.img from a server after becoming root wget http://my.server/recovery.img This way I had the file in a directory that I could access. Then write the recovery.img directly to the necessary device (you are root, you can write anywhere, but you should know what you are doing!) dd if=recovery.img of=/dev/recovery If that is successful you just made it. Now you have installed TWRP. reboot recovery If everything worked you should get into the TWRP recovery you just installed. Now you can flash the ROM that you have copied to your SD-card, wipe all necessary memories/caches and enjoy your new ROM.

Some remarks regarding flashing a new firmware To get to the recovery menu: Press Volume after turning the phone on, this will directly take you to the recovery menu. Find a nice ROM on needrom.com, I downloaded the latest official. fastboot flash boot boot.img sending 'boot' (4254 KB)... OKAY [ 0.174s] writing 'boot'... OKAY [ 0.483s] finished. total time: 0.657s fastboot flash recovery recovery.img sending 'recovery' (4926 KB)... OKAY [ 0.198s] writing 'recovery'... FAILED (remote: partition 'recovery' not support flash) finished. total time: 0.203s
