  4. Simultaneously press the buttons ' power ' and 'volume down ' until you feel a vibration.

  5. Your phone will reboot into recovery mode. ( Should be the OPPO recovery ! )

  6. Select ' Choose English ' & Install zip file

NOTE :

If you get this error message after processing ROOT -->> "Wmjan_Gms_4.3 does not install (installation failed)" then Flash this file by the same way that you have rooted your device.

[11-07-2014 UPDATE Thread] How to get ROOT with ColorOS v1.2.3i on X9076/X9077/X9007/X9006


Download :

1) Official Recovery Mod from Kedros[ (custom recoveries like CWM or TWRP stopped working on this build in X9076)

2) Oppo Root from KedrosOppo Root from Kedros (SuperSU 2.01 apears to be not working)


Steps by step to root:

1. Run fastboot mode on you phone and plug it to PC.

2. Flash recovery "Recovery Mod from Kedros" using prompt command like above 1.2.2i, but here with :

Code:
fastboot flash recovery x9077-official-recovery-mod.img

3. Do not turn off your phone, instead of this PRESS VOLUME DOWN + POWER and enter in new recovery.

4. Flash from new recovery "Oppo Root from Kedros" (flashing simillar to 1.2.2i rooting the phone)

5. Enjoy ! Your OPPO is rooted ! :)


Issue : SuperSU 2.01 doesn't work.

How is this different than rooting via CL and installing custom recovery like TWRP? Can you have both?

Disregard, i did not read the correctly (yes, foot in mouth!) :silly: I downloaded the optional file if Find7_ROOT4.3_bbs.oppo.cn.zip failed... Phone rooted: waiting for official CWM :laugh:

This package is signed such that it will flash in stock recovery.

If you install a custom recovery (which allows you to flash ZIPs signed with keys other than the manufacturer's) you may as well just flash SuperSU

Fun fact: Many ICS releases for the Samsing I9100, I777, and N7000 allowed flashing of ZIPs signed with testkeys using their stock recovery. So you could flash SuperSU on stock recovery with those devices/releases. :) Samsung's gingerbread and JB releases didn't allow this.

Does anyone know where one could find the Oppo stock recovery? I flashed TWRP on my 7a and would like to go back to Oppo's recovery so I can flash beta 2.0.

    has anyone try this on build number X9006_12_14_06_05 ? also what's the worst case scenario if this method failed?

    already tried and tested, works flawlessly

    Found out on another site it does work.
    Phew, that's a relief. Had my new phone a whole hour without root.... Longest that's ever been...:p:laugh:
    Also found that this file flashed through stock recovery gives you all the Google apps if you get the chinese variant, I believe the X9076 shouldn't require this... - www.megafileupload.com/en/file/540593/Find7-GMS4-3-bbs-oppo-cn-zip.html

    Thank you Suyi from Oppo forums for that...

    Now to find a custom recovery and start flashing......:D

    Never know, might be goodbye Samsung if this hits the right note, will now I'm not stuck using chinese app store with all tags in a language I can't read....

    Thx, Is the only difference the fact we don't have to use the computer to root?
