Root finally achieved on CAT B15Q.

I tried all the simple methods, none worked.

I used PDAnet USB drivers.

To achieve root, I made a recovery using the CWM method with SP Flash Tool V5.1408.00 following this guide
chinaphonearena.com/forum/Thread-Tutorial-Ultimate-no-root-backup-CWM-MT6582-MT6592-MT6589-MT6589T-MT6577-MT6595

Recovery was patched using MTK Droid tools. However, SP Flash Tool V5 would not flash the phone with the patched Recovery and Boot files, so for that I used SP Flash Tool V3.1332.0sn187. Then root using MTK Droid tools - Superuser (SuperSU failed). Also useful was this guide
chinaphonearena.com/forum/Thread-Tutorial-How-to-build-CWM-and-root-Bedove-X21-MTK6577-and-other-MTK-phones

Note: When plugging phone in for flashing (this is done with the phone OFF), put battery in, plug cable into phone, hold volume down button when you plug the USB cable into the computer.

Checking with a root checker, it told me I did not have full root access, even though Superuser appeared to be working, I only had temporary root.

I then used Root Genius, which finally achieved full root.

A bit of messing around, but worth it.

Yes, a detailed tutorial how to successful rooting a Cat B15Q would be greatly appreciated.
I've tried with towelroot, but app says phone is not compatible.
Newest chinese version from RootGenius is 1.9.6, but international version is only 1.8.7 from
march 2014. Has anybody tried successfully with one of the versions?

Roor genius didn't work for me. Left my phone in wierd state (screen flickering during call). Had to do factory reset after my root tries.

i hope this thread wont die, there isnt much information on the web on how to root the b15q.

has anyone found some good links, or some in any way useful info that they could post here?

i really hope this will turn out better than with the b15, where after half a year there was still nothing reliable

thanks in advance

Can you tell us which version of RootGenius you used? Chinese 1.9.6, or older international version 1.8.7 from march 2014 ? Or another else?

For info: I have tried to contact as672 for more details, but no answer until today.
