I just got this new phone. Can anyone give me working links and genuine tutorials on ROOT Procedures, TWRP and Custom ROM for UMIDIGI C2. Custom ROM is my biggest need. Thanks in advance for help.

I also have a C2 purchased for my son for xmas that I should have checked before buying if it was rootable as it has too much bloatware on it that I'd like to remove but can't as classed as system packages.

I've googled the web and not found anyone who has rooted one yet so hoping one of the excellent developers on here will have a go as its a nice phone, well spec'd and priced and suruprised given its been out since around June it hasn't been rooted yet.

I haven't yet and did download all the tools to my onedrive (work and home) unfortunatly my work antivirus system picked up dumpimage.exe as a risk and quaratined it although suspect thats a false positive or purely picked up due to the nature of the tool https://www.symantec.com/security_re...6-99&vid=24060

May have a try this evening although I'm not sure if once rooted its best to put the latest vanilla android on it (if possible) or just use the power of root to remove all the preinstalled 'system' crap?

Hmmm.. First option seems easier..?

I had a go but despite adb reboot bootloader working (after enable Developer USB Debug and OEM Boot) I could't get fastboot oem unlock to work.

I've little experience of Android devices as my own mobile is an iPhone 6S which jailbroken on iOS 9.x and despite Jailbreaks of iOS being few and far between, when they do come they seem to be a lot easier to perform that most android roots which I'd have thought by the very nature of android's 'open' nature shouldn't really be as difficult with so many steps as they appear to be.

I think I'll need a better guide as the one mark332 posted with the root image (thanks Mark332...if it works), does seem a little generic and possibly untested?

Allthough I have rooted myself all my previous mobile phones, (Jiayou, ZTE, Xiaomi), nevetherless I agree, guide probably is not tested.. I guess we have to be patient, expecting some better.. From the other side C2 seems to be a good phone but so annoying because of bloatware..
There are some poor informations here https://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=836202&st=320 but even with translator hard to understand.
