Default How to root Medion P4501 md 98428 & Flash .zip files

Hi Guys,

I have an New Smartphone medion P4501 md 98428 This mobile is only released in Europe.
There is a custom rom on it based on cm10 4.1.2 jb but most of useful functions are gone & There is no Supported Recovery for this device Only Stock Recovery so we cant flash any zip at all.

If you do have Medionp4501 md 98428 and you did find any thing intresting share with us over here i tried alot of apps and stuff that i will share it with you guys.I tried alot of Z1 Apps like album and Walkman i pushed them in to system folder with Rwrr permission but the .Apk files wont work if you guys have Album app or other Z1 app that works on jb 4.1.2 odex rom do share with us.

I found an app Flash gordon that flashes .zip files on your device with out a custom recovery but it does not work all the time. Link here.


Request For developers:
So i am making this thread if any developers shows intrest in our device and want to help us to make cwm/twrp recovery.So that we also can enjoy a custom recovery and new features and apps its odex rom with Blocked boot loader.I manage to root it & thats all.

Caution
Before you do any thing in your System partition do know that Medion p4501 do not have any custom recovery so you can use stock recovery to backup data and others but it wont backup your system partition so you cant revert back to your stock rom !!!

1. Download Cydia Impactor to your desktop Windows Download Link here
2. Extract the package to your desktop
3. Run the Cydia Impactor tool
4. On your Android device, enable USB Debugging from Settings > Developer Options
5. Connect the device to a USB port on your computer
6. On Windows, you would need to have the USB drivers for your device installed. If not, you can also use the inbuilt Driver Scan
function in the tool to automatically construct and install a driver for your device
7. Click the Start buton, after making sure that # drop SuperSU su to /system/xbin/su is selected in the dropdown menu
8. Wait for the tool to do its thing
9. Once done, download and install SuperSU from the Play Store & Reboot your device.
10. Enjoy Root access on your Android device


OR

Use Kingo root to root Any Android device & Enjoy.

Followed the instruction and did everything like explained (enabled USB Debugging), but while the process is in action, I get the following message on my phone;
"Unfortunately, Payload has stopped."

On my PC I also get this error msg;
"_assert(stream.sgetn(static)cast<char *>(data), size) == size)"

The Cydia Impactor shows [stopping process].

Any idea what could be the cause for these errors to occur?

Thanks

Edit:
Did a reset of my device and got no errors anymore.
I think it's fixed.
Thank you very much.

I have an issue with 2 P4501's. The top few cm of the touchscreen registers taps, but doesnt correctly register tap & hold. Its like I release the touch immediately even though I keep my finger pressed down. Both my phones have the exact same issue, and its regardless of which app I run. Home screen, game or some touchscreen test app, they all do it.

Anyone else having this, and any chance for a fix?
