GIONEE M2
Iam totally new & curious about cons. & pron.of rooting & flashing. I want to know which will help me to have required features in my phone with least risk either rooting or flashing------------
01. Some sites say that it supports full OTG (pen drive support) which is disabled in it. I don't know wether it is true or not. If it is true than how to unlock this feature.
02. Its original 4.2.2 along with bloatwares consumes about 550 ram this makes a trouble to me for multi processing in it.
03. Is custom ROM for android phones are developed on basis on of hardware or is similar to windows for pc & laptops. Like using any windows OS and after that installing audio,video,graphics,connectivity,Bluetooth,etc drivers for it according to hardware.
04. In my phone bloatwares also asking for update thus going to increase my phone's RAM
acordding to mefew cons are
1. Some of componet may not work properly due to rom problem or due to improper installation.

Xposed Framework works fine on the rooted Gionee M2.

While several modules (like Xprivacy) work, GravityBox via Xposed download fc's, use the GravityBox Apk instead

As for M2 Stock ROM, I suggest take a backup of your own phone ROM, there is little chance that Gionee will make stock ROM's available for M2 (a very new device) anytime soon.

For other Gionee ROM's (stock) external sites like androidXDA have a few ROM's for download but none for M2

There are no custom ROM's for M2, if you want a smoother/cleaner experience try uninstalling some bloatware and change the DPI using an Xposed module.

hi, I have the custom rom for gionee m2 which I backed up at the first place when I bought the phone. If any one need it please email me. I would be happy to help and provide.
email: [email protected]
You will need a CWM to use it. I have the CWM too.
Thank you.

WhatsAPP update zip

That's what I thought updated firmware. Thanks. And sad about whatsapp plus. This is the first time I have ever heard or experienced it :(

Which is the most stable custom rom, because I tried AOSP and front camera was not working.

To use WhatsApp in stock Rom, I tried to install it into framework. And it is working.

Check it out :good::
Here is a Update.zip file flashable through any CWM based recovery.

You can keep it in the SD card and rename it to update.zip if needed :laugh:.

Please Help Me to Root Gionee M2 (8GB) running On 4.4.2

Respected Sir,
I want to root Gionee M2 (8GB) running On 4.4.2. I`ve tried Vroot, towelroot, but failed. Previously I had root access on 4.2.2.
Please help me to gain root access.

Ok, I solved this after rummaging through various Threads.....pls find a detailed guide in this post by me on rooting the newer lot of M2 phones, including KITKAT upgraded phones. (mine is KitKat too)

The Gionee M2 has a MT6582 Mediatek chipset.

ROOT:

The best way to root this is to use Framaroot, Barahir exploit.
Although the Framaroot page on XDA does not list this as a compatible device (yet) it works really well.
All credits for Framaroot go to alephzain : here

BACKUP ROM WITH MTKTOOLS:
Download the awesome MTK Droid Root & Tools by rua1 from here
There are many detailed tutorials for using the actual tool ( I used v2.5.3) with detailed pictures etc., I wont reproduce them here, but before you read and follow the tutorials, make sure, your phone is rooted, you have the ADB drivers for your MT6582 chipset and the microsd card you put inside your phone is formatted inside the phone otherwise the backup will throw an error

Create & Install CWM:
Dev rua1's MTKTOOLS can also create a CWM image automatically from the boot.img that is created in the above step. There are detailed tutorials already available on many sites that show step by step how to do this. Installing CWM is up to you, either via Mobile Uncle Tools from the playstore (recommended) and the freshly minted CWM image or via SP Flash Tools using the Backup of ROM created with MTKTOOLS


Bro, thanks for gathering this here. Unfortunately, rooting through Framaroot seems to no longer work (Barahir, Faramir or Boromir). I did some research and put together this guide. It will be useful to everyone if this can be included in the OP. Thanks,

    The Gionee M2 has a MT6582 Mediatek chipset.

    Follow the Gionee guide on their site for upgrading to KitKat, before you start the process, replace the recovery.img file in the ROM file you downloaded and extracted and replace it with a CWM or Carliv touch recovery file that works for the JB versions, this will give you a custom recovery (power button + up key when booting)

    The 800Mb+ KitKat ROM update file has about 300mb of pure bloatware, unknown games etc. :(

    ROOT:
    Enable USB debugging
    Download SuperSU from the playstore (we will use it to replace the chinese SU file later)
    Download RootMaster (google it), this is an apk file probably made by the same chinese dev's who made Vroot
    Make sure wifi is on, run RootMaster, all text is chinese, but the press to root button is english, it works, if it doesnt the first time try again (dont press anything else, it has a ton of crapware)
    It should prompt that your phone is rooted, give it some time, it actually downloads a chinese version of SU
    Now run SuperSU, it will replace the chinese version with the familiar english SuperSU ( although the chinese SU app with the lion emblem and chinese text will still be on your phone)
    I recommend doing a full factory reset at this stage and using a root uninstaller app to remove all traces of this chinese RootMaster SU


    Xposed Framework:
    The amigo system resources interferes with Xposed you can still get it to install the framework by first installing the Xposed apk and then going to the settings of the Xposed installer and checking the box "Disable resources API", this will mean GravityBox WILL fail.

    -------------------------------------------------------
    Framaroot Doesn't work anymore
    The best way to root this is to use Framaroot, Barahir exploit.
    Although the Framaroot page on XDA does not list this as a compatible device (yet) it works really well.
    All credits for Framaroot go to alephzain : here

    This still works

    Stable roms are "Fly UI", "Canvas", "Xperia UI" and "axer". Till yet I've not faced any problem in this roms so you can flash any from above roms. Right now I'm using canvas rom and it works fantastic with xposed and it's modules. Before this, was using fly ui and it's also awesome and very smooth.
