Phone Gionee elife e3 development - root, cwm , roms , nadroid backup explained in detail



Gionee Elife E3 is a Mobile made by a chinese Handset manufacturer Gionee , It is just 7.9mm thick and has a gorgeous display.
So in this Thread I will be discussing :-


READ AND FOLLOW THE WHOLE PROCEDURE..! ITS IMPORTANT

1. How to Root Gionee Elife E3
2. How to Flash CWM
3. Compatible Roms with Gionee Elife E3
4. How To Flash Custom Roms
5 . Difference Between Indian & Chinese Gionee Elife E3
6. Firmware You should Flash to install Custom Roms



Lets Start With - How to identify which Gionee Elife E3 Firmware You Are Currently Using .
Go into Setting >> System Update and Click on Update Firmware Button . If u notice anything there written in chinese or if u have the button of the System update in a circular Form then your elife e3 has the Chinese Firmware , otherwise u have The Indian Firmware


Ok so now you identified which firmware u have. (Identifying which firmware u have will come in handy later on)

Lets Start Rooting of the Phone

ROOTING OF GIONEE ELIFE E3 (CHINESE AND INDIAN) -
