Default Guide: HOW TO ROOT O+ / 8.7 OPLUS

Phone Specs:
Hardware : MT6575
Model : O+_8.7_Android
Build number : Oplus_A100ALPS.GB2.MP.V2
Build date UTC : 20120706-085741
Android v : 2.3.6
Baseband v: MAUI.11AMD.W11.50.SP.V13.P1, 2012/04/27 18:49
Kernel v : 2.6.35.7 (queen@xyw2) (gcc version 4.4.3 (GCC) ) #1 Fri Jul 6 16:56:36 CST 2012


Rooted via unsecured boot.img
and successfully flashed ClockWorkMod Recovery.

We need to modify the stock boot.img of the phone because it is "impossible" to root the device that has "ro.secure=1" setting in the boot.img , that is the reason why we need to modify the stock boot.img to have an "ro.secure=0"

If you are able to flash the modified boot.img to the phone.
ANY ROOTING METHOD will do, like
superoneclick, unlock me, or any exploit that uses ZergRush

take note that O+8.7 is MT6575

just follow instructions here if you want how to modify your own stock boot.img

Im not responsible for any damage that may be incured. im just sharing. I hope you understand.


The Easy Way:
If you want to use my modified boot.img. follow the succeeding instructions.
...
If you already have other versions of the softwares that are provided. Please Do not use them.
Use only provided software versions given to avoid conflict.
...
1) Download MTKXX_preloader_driver from attachment and install.[IMPORTANT]

2) Download boot.rar extract it and make sure you have boot.img file

3) Download MT6573_Android_scatter.txt
*As you can see, the scatter file is for MT6573, just ignore this, the important thing is the contents inside the file.

4) Using SP_Flash_Tool_v2.1134.00 load first the scatter file provided.

5) From the checkbox below, choose boot and browse for the boot.img provided.
*Make sure you selected the boot.img that is provided or else your phone might end up in a boot loop.

6) make sure to enable debugging mode in your mobile then turn it OFF.

7) Click download and plug in your O+ 8.7 to PC.

8) Then wait for download until you see the green circle.

9) Reboot phone

10) try SuperOneClick v2.3.3 ShortFuse.zip, or any rooting tool you are comfortable with.

Default Additional Information

If you have troubled with the USB driver for your device download this and extract it. Put in the place where you can easily find it.
On your computer go to device manager and look for the USB device that have yellow exclamation point.
Right click it and update, choose browse and look for your previously downloaded USB driver and install it.

Default OPLUS 7.1 Tab

Has anyone tried rooting their OPlus Tab 7.1? Mine's new so I'm still reluctant to do it. Will definitely ruin the warranty.

Just need to know if someone has successfully done that so I can root mine once the warranty is expired.

Thumbs up WORKING

Just rooted my phone yesterday...

What I did is that I just follow those given steps stated above but you really have to be careful because it might not work properly..

it is said in the step #6 that you must enable usb debugging to do this you have to go to:

SETTINGS >> APPLICATION >> DEVELOPMENT >> USB DEBUGGING (enable) and TURN OFF YOUR MOBILE PHONE.

step #7 Click DOWNLOAD FIRST and wait for the message in the bottom right said: PLEASE INSERT USB CABLE you will be given a 14sec time so you really have to insert the cable fast. After this step you will see the yellow bar to download and after that you will see the green box for successful confirmation.

try to reboot your phone and turn it on.

after this you can now root your phone but I suggest you use the SuperOneClick v2.3.3 ShortFuse.zip.

(z4root and universal androot is not applicable. I tried this 2 kind of root apps already.)

Just ENABLE USB DEBUGGING, insert your USB CABLE to the computer.

Download superoneclick from any site make sure to extract the files open it and you will see an ANDROID ICON with superoneclick.exe run the application then a box will appear.

Go to ADVANCE and click SEARCH DRIVERS then the USB DRIVER for O+ 8.7 will automatically download.

After that go to basic then click ROOT SHELL or SHELL ROOT. Then, click the ROOT. Systems from your mobile device will be seen. Wait for the box to be shown saying that your phone is successfully rooted. If you are in doubt you can do it again, repeating the same steps but don't repeat for the usb driver to download.

Reboot your phone. Turn it on and you will see superuser downloaded to your system application. If your still in doubt if your phone is rooted or not download ROOT CHECKER in your phone. Install the apps, run it and click the CHECK NOW. ROOTED will be shown in the status section.


Congratulations! Your phone is rooted!



If your not 100% sure of rooting your phone try to keep this for future use after the warranty of your phone expires.
