Cool ZTE V793 rooted
rooted my zte v793 successfully

i used the SP Flash tool to obtain scatter file and use that file to modify CWM from zte blade using MTK Droid tools. Then i flash the recovery image to the phone using SPF tool.

then using CWM, i flashed Root_Superuser_3.1.3_Busybox_1.20.2-Update1-signed.zip to the phone.

Then i use Link2SD and partitioned my sdcard to offload files from the meagre 100MB limitation

i will put the detailed procedure and the customised CWM for v793 if that's needed so you don't have to mess around with those files.

thanks

edit: I also in need of usb driver for this phone because whenever I switch off phone for Flash tool, my XP laptop always ask for drivers of which I don't have.

Thank you in advance. I'll wait for your files and guidance to do it.

RE: [Q] How to Root ZTE V793
Dear all,
my method ultimately becomes obselete now. to root, you can just use one of these 2 methods:
1. Ishuaji
2. e-root

the supersu included is in chinese, so you might need to flash CWM to change to english supersu.

as for flashing CWM, you can find tutorials using Mobileuncle.

thanks!

First, disclaimer:
WE TAKE NO CREDIT FOR ANY WORK THAT COMES ASSOCIATED WITH THESE BUILDS UNLESS SPECIFIED OTHERWISE. THANKS FOR KEEPING THINGS OPEN!

All the files needed are in this google drive folder:

Detail of files:
Quote:

1. zte_mtk6573_drivers_cdc+vcom+adb_v1.1136.0.zip
USB VCOM driver. needed when you want to flash the phone (This is when you strip the battery off the phone and connect it to USB). this driver is unsigned, so for win8 users, pls google how to install unsigned drivers.

2. SP Flash Tool v3.1216.05.7z

Flashing tool. you need this to flash the custom CWM attached.

3. MT6575_Android_scatter.txt

Device-specific memory map. we need this to tell SP flash tool where to put the custom CWM when flashing.

4. ZTE-V793_130615__recovery_130802-123951.img
Custom CWM generated from my phone (ZTE V793) bought from Happy Mobile (DiGi) under SKMM package.
DISCLAIMER: this is generated from my phone's settings and intended only for my phone's usage. I will not be responsible for any damage caused by your act of flashing this file onto your phone.

I successfully generated the file using the tutorial from a russian site


also an xda tutorial here

You can generate your own CWM using tutorials above, but if you agree with the disclaimer, you can use the custom recovery attached. With no warranties, of course.

5. Root_Superuser_3.1.3_Busybox_1.20.2-Update1-signed.zip
The rooting tool to be installed by our custom CWM to the phone to obtain root

Method:
Quote:

This can be divided into several process:
1. Download all related files
2. Install Driver
3. Flash custom CWM
4. Install Root & Busybox zip file using CWM


1. Download all related files

Pretty self explanatory. Download and extract all files.

First, download and install USB Driver:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/f7...ZTE+Driver.rar

2. Install Driver
We need 2 drivers to be installed:
- ZTE_Handset_USB_Driver.exe
- JoinMe_for_Android.exe

the Joinme driver is needed when flashing custom CWM. However, it didn't work for me. so I installed zte_mtk6573_drivers_cdc+vcom+adb_v1.1136.0.zip manually. To install it, remove battery from phone, connect to usb. Wait for computer to start searching for drivers, select Browse for drivers and select the vcom drivers downloaded.

3. Flash custom CWM
1. Open Flash_tool.exe from SP Flash Tool v3.1216.05 folder extracted earlier.
2. Click "Scatter-loading". Select "MT6575_Android_scatter.txt" that you downloaded earlier.

7. Now you're done flashing, it's time to boot into CWM. Unplug the phone from USB. Put on battery. Press Vol+ & Power Button simultaneously. When ZTE logo appear, RELEASE ALL BUTTON.

8. Let's hope you boot straight into CWM

If you have this, then CONGRATULATIONS! you are now a step away from root!

4. Install Root & Busybox zip file using CWM
1. Copy the "Root_Superuser_3.1.3_Busybox_1.20.2-Update1-signed.zip" onto the root of SD Card on your phone as normally you would (I wouldn't elaborate since this is android 101 knowledge)

2. Boot into Clockworkmod (CWM) recovery. To do this, turn off your phone normally. 5 seconds after the phone vibrates (fully off), press volume up (vol+) and power button. Wait until ZTE logo appears, then release both buttons.

If you do this correctly, you will see "CWM v 5.5.0.4 for ZTE V"

to navigate, use volume up (vol+) & volume down (vol-). to select, use power button.

3. Select "install zip from SD CARD" > "Choose zip from sdcard" > Look for "Root_Superuser_3.1.3_Busybox_1.20.2-Update1-signed.zip". REMEMBER: Navigate using volume button, select using power button.

then, confirm by selecting "Yes - Install Root_Superuser_" and pressing power button.

when completed, go back to main menu and select reboot.

if nothing goes wrong, you will see SuperUser and busybox icon in your App drawer.


UPDATE:
12082013 - finished 4th item - install root & busybox
todo - revise SP Flash tool version
