Hi All,
I just wanted to ask if Rooting in Oppo a3s (Model: CPH1803) is possible.
I'm afraid to try rooting it because I haven't found any Rooting tutorials in YouTube and Google. I think it's because this was a new release. Sorry about my English grammar I hope you understand it.

I hope someone OPPO a3s user whom successfully rooting this Model will notice this thread.
Thank you for the help.

Rooting Oppo A3s is technically ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE if we're just gonna talk in the current resources that users have, which is ADB and OTA Support.

Oppo A3s doesn't have sources, fastboot binaries, edl mode. i can do the job if it just have what i needed. porting is irrelevant in this job btw. so mostly building/compiling is needed.

nevertheless, Debloating and Adopt process is present in which you can increase free ram (technically, by debloating - debloating will uninstall all unnecessary system apps making cpu load and ram usage lower than normal rate) and free storage (adopt SD Card as Internal). so yea, have fun finding root in this device for nothing. oppo gives more security but well yea most of us here needs root (actually not me).

I am not responsible for your damaged phones, everything you do, do it yourself and bear full responsibility for yourself.

Hi.
I want to warn you about the fact that you yourself can find resources where they allegedly talk about how you can successfully get root rights using applications such as King root and the like. Do not get fooled by this nonsense. King root and others like them, which can be put on the device with an ordinary apk file, are not able to give root rights to this phone. Anyway, the same King root only supports android up to version 5. It is possible to get root with its help on the 6 android, but not on many devices. But on Android 7 and above, using it will get the root, in principle, is not possible.
The problem is not even that we have a locked bootloader (without which it is not possible to install tvrp, patched boot, and possibly root), but there is no possibility to use fastboot mode. And without this mode, the bootloader cannot be unlocked. The "craftsmen" from ORRO removed the fastboot executive files from the phone, and thereby deprived the ability to use fastboot mode to further unlock the bootloader.
But I found one article supposedly solving this problem. Its essence is that through the regular recovery menu (which is called by pressing the power and volume buttons down on the phone off), a certain archive is flashed and thereby enabling the fastboot oem unlock command to be activated via fastboot, which unlocks the bootloader.
So, as I have not seen real reviews on this subject, and considering that the phone was recently purchased (although it’s used, it’s in good condition), I’m afraid to do these manipulations with the bootloader.

    I tried but Oppo A3s won't even let to open that Kingrôot App.

    Know how to unlock BootLoader first.
