http://whiteboard.ping.se/Android/Rooting (for unlocking the boot.img)
A Chaina re-branned phone
A fastboot mode
A useless recovery mode
A locked boot.img (thats why even chmod or simply pushing a su will not root the phone)
A IMEI number(which if you mess up after flashing,you will not get any radio signals)
1)First Unlock the Boot IMG
Before you proceed I will strongly recommend to download the tutorial guide ppt that you will find in Recent Activity list at the top of this post
You need to tamper permission after extracting the boot.img for this.No worry guys i have already done that for you .Just download the below file
Unsecured Boot Image
Now a bit critical part,read carefully .This unlocked image needed to be flashed to your device.For that you need research download and firmware pac file.
Download this to files from the below links
PAC versions & Tools Download
(pac file,driver,research download all included)
Download this drivers and install,after successfull installtion you will have(under device manager)
2.two COM ports
If any of this having yellow sign it will not work.
Open research download
click on first button and load pac file
click on second button change baudrate to 115200,in calibration tab uncheck all.
For BOOT_IMG option browse and select the unlockedboot.img that you downloaded now.
plugin the usb cable(DON'T plugin the phone now)
click on play button
PRESS & HOLD VOLUME UP KEY and insert the usb cable,don't release the key.
Download should starts within 3 secs.If it doesn't then check the drivers carefully or reply to this thread with failures.
Once done unplug your phone and remove battery for 3 second
Reinsert battery and restart your phone.
YES!! you have successfully unlocked the boot.img
First thing you should do before any tweaking and twisting save your back!!.Install CMW using the below method straight away and save your back.
1.Download .andriod.zip,extract it and save it under C:\Users\<computer name>\<paste it here>
2.From your phone got to application-->developer option-->enable usb debugging
3.Now plugin your phone through micro usb cable.
4.Download this zip ,extract and place in under c:/<paste it here>
5.Open a command prompt type
cd C:\Android Multi tool C:\Android Multi tool>fastboot devices 20080823 fastboot
C:\Android Multi tool>fastboot flash recovery recovery.img sending 'recovery' (10240 KB)... OKAY [ 10.487s] writing 'recovery'... OKAY [ 3.425s] finished. total time: 13.918s
OK now . I have done the 1st step n my phone is working fine with a new boot image . But then my internet is not working Wi-fi is working good but mobile data isn't working at all
Also I don't know anything about the command prompt so I am unable to do the 2nd step ...
Can anyone help me here please .
I tried to do the 3rd step but it shows signature error - verification failed ...
Help me please ...
Everything went well.. but Can't Mount SD Card in ClockWorkMod Recovery... The Model of the phone is A65 Bolt . It is not A65 smarty, so initially when I had flashed v2 rom the phone went dead. After flashing V4 the phone is working. But CWM recovery says..E: can't mount /sd card
download this insecure boot.img
and donload this rom
this is bolt rom generally i didnt got any problem in netwroking but when i tried to install busybox and fixing init.d then my edge wasnt working
and this rom is also have a good battry backup so just use this and follow the same steps you will be rooted
if you have problem in rooting then after flashing the device with insecure boot.img you can also use unlock root
