[TUT] [MTK] How to install CWMR on MTK devices!
How to SUCESSFULLY root and flash CWMR on MediaTek (MTK) devices!
By: Yume Kiblitz
MTK devices. Don't ya love em? Theres something about the smell of
cheap chinese impostor phones (Or as I like to say...phonies *gets shot*)...
ANYWAY, This is a guide showing how to do all that stuff I mentioned 6 lines up!
WARNING! - YOU MUST HAVE USB DEBUGGING ENABLED AND ALLOW THE INSTALLATION OF UNKNOWN APPS!
PHASE ONE: Downloading!
I've collected the proper tools all over the internet for you and bundled them into a zip file! How nice am I right?
Download and extract the attached files.
PHASE TWO: Rooting!
Extracted? Good. Now install SRS One Click Root, run the program, click on smart root, follow the programs instructions
and then come back to me...okay? OKAY!? Note: My phone was vulnerable to the Gandalf exploit, yours may be different.
PHASE TWO POINT ONE: Verify your root!
This is fairly simple, look at the debug window of SRS One Click. At the bottom there should be a confirmation of root access!
If not...then you dont have root access and you must find another meathod before continuing
PHASE THREE: BACK, BACK, BACK IT UP!
Go into the Tools folder, now go into the MTK Droid Tools folder and run the program.
Head over to the "root, backup, and recovery tab" and at the very bottom
of the program, click on the ROOT button, this will ask your phone for root permissions, so you wil have to tap the grant button on
your phone. After that click the backup button at the top of the program and wait for it to finish backing up your ROM. Now that
everything is backed up, go on and click the bubble "To choose the boot.img file" and now click the "Recovery and Boot" button right
next to it. A folder dialog box should pop up. At this point click on the "backups" folder and then click the folder inside of that.
If you have more then one folder identify your phone by looking at the folder names. Look for a folder with the name and model of the phone
youre working on. Anyway, after you're in that folderjust click on the file named "boot.img", there should be only one file named that
in your folder, if there is more then one, delete that folder, re-backup your phone, and then retry these steps.
PHASE THREE POINT ONE: Installing CWMR! (Clockworkmod Recovery)
After you click the "boot.img" file there will be a dialog box asking if it should make a CWM recovery, click yes (Obviously). After
that, there will be 2 more dialogs, click yes to both of them. The last box will ask is you want to reboot into recovery, you can choose
yes or no, it wont matter bacause CWMR is installed to your phone now!
