Here is a step by step method for to root the Zen ultrafone 701HD.
I've Tested it on my own Phone....It Works..

This is just a compilation of the resources already available on various threads in XDA..
All credits to the original developers...

I take DO NOT responsibility for any damages - It worked on my phone, no reason it should
not work on the other 701HDs out there..

STEP 1 - ACTIVATE DEVELOPER OPTIONS ON YOUR PHONE:-

Go to the Settings menu

Scroll down and tap on the About Phone button

Scroll down until you see Build number and tap on that repeatedly

After tapping the Build number button a few times it says " you are now a developer!"

You have successfully activated Developer Options.

Now go to developer options and activate USB Debugging


STEP 2 - INSTALL PHONE DRIVERS

Connect your phone to your computer via USB.

Go to control panel -> device manager after a few minutes

Right click on Zen Ultrafone and update drivers ... required drivers are attached below.

Your device manager should not normally have any unrecognized hardware after this step. ( see attached Image).

The"Android Composite ADB Interface" MUST be listed by now... if not recheck your steps again.

Disconnect and restart your phone and your computer and make sure it stays that way.

STEP 3 - TIME TO ROOT!!

Extract the files in the archive Zen 701HD.rar in any place convenient.

Open the extracted folder.

Right click on the file Run.bat and choose "Run As Administrator"

Connect your phone Via USB now if not yet connected.

Follow the on screen instructions... (next to none.. so not explained)

Do NOT disconnect your phone during the process

Enjoy your Rooted phone!!

OP, nice job helping people out there. But, it's Q&A section and it's likely that people will be more helped if you make that guide in Miscellaneous Android Development Section.

More people will find it there because they will look for it there only. :)

Just request a mod to move the guide in that section. :victory:

I was not allowed to post in the development sections initially.......
The tutorial for CWM will surely come up there...
How do I request a MOD to shift this thread there??

Darn it

Don't know why zen guys want to tarnish the already almost non existent reputation of theirs.

Impressed by my phone a friend ordered the 701 HD and it turns out defective. the same dreaded line on display !

Somehow even my reputation is at stake now among friends

    Vijay , kruga please check from pics is my adb drivers are installed properly or not coz in
    device manager its showing
    ...Android ADB interface (yellow sign)
    ...HTC Android interface

    But in MTK Droid tool its showing 'ultrafone 701HD' Properly.

    Sent from my ultrafone 701HD using XDA Premium 4 mobile app

    According to the image attached here, your device got detected fine.
    In the second image, it is showing two devices list. Do this, uninstall both and connect the phone and update drivers. Not necessary though.

    Now, to work with MTK driod tools, you need to click ROOT (to backup complete ROM).

    Confused? Let me know what you want to do?

    Well, I didn't want to root... but GPS is a problem here and for me that is very important... TTF is highly volatile... so rooted... GPS has improved but still not happy when I see a Galaxy models getting locks under 15 secs...

    After rooting I have installed all usual apps TB, XPrivacy, Rebooter, SetCpu, Greenify, GravityBox etc.

    EDIT: My battery levels have become erratic after rooting... 100 to 80 is like 10 mins with little usage.

    ---------- Post added at 06:23 AM ---------- Previous post was at 06:20 AM ----------



    Thanks, Can you tell me what exactly is meant by "GPS fixed". Are you using a custom gps.conf file or is this something else?

    no build.conf tweak.... replaced GPS libraries from a zte rom.... and added a debugging line to build.prop ....
    this was done in the stock zen v7 ROM only .... had no effect on the custom Roms...
