I'm on my tablet now so I can finally post the link properly. If that thread doesn't have what you need in full, it should at least have enough info to help you search for a better explanation.

Oh, thanks. It can be seen from the browser, not from tapatalk, that's why I couldn't see the link.

Yeah, I've read this already, but it's an old thread and it doesn't work on KitKat because there's no void.fstab file in system/etc/ on KitKat roms

Poop, sorry, I'm still on Jelly Bean. There'll be a page on here somewhere.

[G4S/L(1+4)] How to Root & CWM/TWRP
Hello Everyone,
I`m a user of JIAYU G4S/L(1+4).
The Complication is "G4SL-20140422-120615" (default version when I got it).

I would like to get root and make a backup image with CWM or TWRP for burn to another rom from needrom.com .
Then I have some questions. Plz give me sm advices.
or plz introduce me some good tutorial for this model G4S/L in ENGLISH.

my questions are below....

Q1. How to get root with this model G4S/L(1+4)?
I tried to get root with sm toolz, so now it seems to be rooted on the screen. (I checked it with an application with my G4S/L.)
But sth wrong. The MK Droid Tool cannot recognized that it is ROOTed. ( the color of Icon is still YELLOW )
and [ROOT] button is refused to get it by sth.
So now I think it is not real rooted and I can`t get the backup.
Q2. Should I get suitable ROM from internet for my model, exactly G4S/L?
Can I burn the rom for G4S(2+8) (not for G4S/L(1+4) ) after rooted?
or should I get the ROM for G4S/L(1+4)?
Q3. How to install any custom recovery tool (CWM/TWRP) ?
I cannot go to the bootloader of this one.
I`ve read an article on web about mtk6592 series doesn`t has Bootloader.
Additionally I cannot go to the recovery mode, either.
So I failed to install any tools.
Plz help me to enjoy with this smartphone!!

thanks,

thanks,

If you have the April ROM, do you have Jelly Bean? If so, look under settings/security and you should see a superuser switch. If so, you already had root without doing anything.

Is there a Miui ROM for the G4S? The ROMs which are available on needromm seem to be not continued.


Kind regards

Thanks re-msg, Ouzo!

Can I ask you what the April ROM is?
My rom is default, "G4SL-20140422-120615". Is this the April ROM?

Then yes, it is there the setting the "Super User Switch" in settings/security and I enabled it.
But I tried to check it with Root Explorer then refused, "It is not rooted!".
So I thought it is not rooted and use tool to get it.

Should I try it after factory reset??

The date of the ROM is in the title...

G4SL - the phone
2014 - the year of the build
04 - the month
22 - the day

OK, if you have the super user option in settings/security, then you had root from the very beginning, you just had to turn it on. I mention this in the opening post.

I am unfamiliar with the tool you used to root it, hopefully if you perform a factory reset it will remove it and nothing will be reinstalled afterwards. If you do a factory reset, don't forget to back up any data that you need first.

Update: Turns out it does...Homemade OTG cables rock...
