1) MtkDroidTools v253

2) SP Flash Tool v5.1352.01

3) UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.94.zip

==================

first you need to make sure that # "adb devices" detect your phone...
(need to install proper drivers)

--- Installing "PdaNetA4150.exe" & "GN_MTK_USBDriver(Factory)_V1.1.0_1" may help you with adb driver


then try the following link to generate CWM for gionee s5.5 using MtkDroidTools & SP Flash Tool

.... After generating the cwm recovery for your phone...just flash recovery
with the newly generated cwm, using "sp flash" tool"

Finally boot into cwm recovery and flash the "SuperSu 1.94 zip" from internal storage..


Best of luck... ( take backup and any wrong step can brick your phone)
Thank you so much for this guide but I am stuck on the SIXTH STEP of generating CWM.
But you seem much tech savvy!

So Please PLEASE generate a CWM file and post it!
Mine is a Indian version and I guess yours generated CWM will work just fine!

I just rooted my Allview X2 Soul with Shuame tool Root-Genius and working perfect. It's very easy to use just download, activate usb debugging mode and press a button. So you can try it on your phones.

Thumbs up Gionee Elife S5.5 - Playstore crash issue

Does anybody know how to root the phone? Will Vroot also work (it is supposed to work on the elife e7 which has the same custom rom, amigo 2.0, I think).

Really struggling because many dialogs are in Chinese although I set the language to english...

Btw. one chinese guy told me the phone can be rooted using a chinese application named 大师 - however I have no clue where to even start with this...

Hay CoolKiller, if you are still struglling with the playstore issue and dont wanna root your phone just for the PlayStore bug, then you need to Hard reset your device. you can do so if you have KitKat update installed. Coz, after KitKat update, the older PlayStore APK would display errors or crash at times. its recomended for your to hard reset the device adter update.

No need to ROOT the device just to fix PlayStore crash issue. Do let me know your thoughts on this.

I am planning to buy this device next week. Just 2 queries for the Indian buyers out here>

Will the battery last for a day with wifi and moderate usage?
Is Google Play store installed? and if Gmail works well enough (heard that it force closes) ?

Thanks in advance

Hello

Do you have any idea if it works on Allview X2 Soul (basically same specs but customised android for allview company ....)
I have play store. I'm more interested in root, cwm and installing other ROM (I would prefer 4.4.2 from GIONEE) ..

Best regards
