So,

I've bought an Samsung Galaxy S3 replica (read: fake, and i want only to root it no flash it):
Model number: S930
Android version: 4.0.3
Baseband version: DM_BASE_12A_W12.28_P1|sc8810_modem|07-13-2012 16:42:35
Kernel version: 2.6.35.7 [email protected] #3
Software version: T300_JYYS930_C3BOM_MLB_V6.6.5_20121105
Hardware version: 1.1.0
CPU: Spreadtrum

When I first plugged it my notebook (Win7 32bit) I've got in the device manager:

Other Devices
- Spreadtrum Phone
- Spreadtrum Phone
- Spreadtrum Phone


I'm trying to root it so I started my research, afts thousands of tests, I discoverd that

Other Devices
- Spreadtrum Phone >> Android Composite ADB Interface (driver instaled with Android SDK)
- Spreadtrum Phone >> SCI General U2S(AT) (COM3) (Google Search: Spreadtrum Drivers)
- Spreadtrum Phone >> SCI Vendor U2S(DIAG) (COM4) (Google Search: Spreadtrum Drivers)

So after all the yellow marks disappeard i've tried almost everything to root it:

- QQPhoneManeger for Android (which recognise the device like: Sprd S930 - allow me to access my "device root" but I can't change anything there, not even copy from it)
- UnlockRoot (which worked in my previous phone MTP65XX also an android replica)
- Odin
- PDA Net
- SparkyRoot
- Z4Root
- Poot-debug + Ministro II
- Instant-root
- Gingerbreak
- OneClickRoot
- SuperOneClick

And recently i've tried the DooMLoRD ROOT v18 - And I've only got:
adb is out of date. killing...
*daemon estarted succefully*

and nothing more, so i've went to search some more, and I've learned how to verify if adb recognise the device.
I added the C:\android-sdk\plataform-tools to my system path and tried the commands
adb devices
my answer was:
*daemon not runing. startin it now on port 5037*
*daemon started successfully*
List of devices attached:

....
Nothing, so i've tried
adb shell
my answer was:
error: device not found

So I re-checked all the drivers, unistalled and re-installed.
tried again same thing...

So now i'm stuck, all the solutions that i've fonund for the problem is now coverd

Is there any way to solve it? Or any way to root my device that isn't listed? Or any driver that's better for my device than the one in Android SDK?

Thanks in advance and sorry for the english.

UPDATE!!

Solved, yay!, view solutions below :)

hi guys

i got my friend samsung galaxy S3 clone
its working very well
but the thing
one micro SIM slot is there- not working or always no signal/no sim card
another one normal SIM slot- that one also not working (its showing no SIM No signal)

please help friends how fix this for more information screen shots has been attached





Hello!

I had the exact same phone model, and first of all, microsim slot isnt working, no need to try it, only regular sim.

Second , since your IMEI is still there and looks OK, im sorry to tell you that its a hardware problem 99%.

Hey, how do you make any changes without backingup everything? I've learned that backup is essential in the worst way, kinda like you but, even worse (in my opinion), thanks to that I don't even have this device any more.

But let's talk about your problem, even though I no longer have the devicemy backup still here, you must be luck, 'cause just the other day I was ceaning every file related to this device and must have skipped this one. I don't know if any of the apk (s) linked here are for your device, 'cause even if it is also a Samsung clone, it don't mean that have the same characteristics.

The "troublemaker" in my case was th "Playtalk" it is an app that I didn't even knew how to use, since when I tapped it the browser would open and show the website of the developer.

And again, I don't promise anything, there must be differences between our devices.

Good Luck.

excuse
because i see WaterLocker.apk
That is a app from china mobile.
Can you show me???
It do not work

Hi guys I've rooted this unit twice.

Hey I see new troubled posts here,

I've rooted this before using the Portuguese Method.

After months of using the phone, I accidentally bricked it by deleting a system app.

I had bought a new one. Same model.



I realized that the Portuguese Method is only PARTIAL ROOTING, that's why everybody is having a hard time with it.

So now I know the exact method of rooting it (this is a supplementary post to our earlier posts so please read it again)
1. Make sure device IDs are correct and recognizable (new ones have the certificates already)
2. Run ADB.exe
3. RUN DOOMLORD
3. RUN PORTUGUESE METHOD

-as you can see, you have to do both because it can't install BusyBox via Portuguese Method.

Hope this helps

Ur very welcome. Keep in mind u need a stable net connection. This is a route to take when u can't locate the drivers for your device. That's why u need the net.. And good luck. My sc8810 is now since retired. Lol

    thanks for highlighting the "Root Android 4.0 (Novo método) Atualizado x3") i have tried other methods but my internal Memory is Read only and they cant copy the Superuser apk and stuff .Can u please explain to me step by step the way you rooted yours because i think your phone is the same as mine .thanks in advance

    Well, I mainly followed what this post says (i'm sure you've done this, but just in case):

    1º: Download ADB Drivers (there's a link on the page, i cannot reproduce it here)
    2º: Extract everything somewhere
    3º: Connect your Android device with USB debugging mode enabled
    4º: Open your Device Manager (Control panel > Device Manager )
    5º: Right click your android device (surely there're three of them, in Other Devices as "Spreadtrum phone" ) and select "Update driver"
    6º: Select "Browse my computer for driver software". Then "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer". Then "Have Disk..." and you browse till you find where you have extracted the drivers of point 1.
    7º: Click in next
    8º: The driver gets installed

    After everything has installed correctly, reboot your computer just to make sure the driver was installed and loaded correctly.

    Place Hardware ID VID_xxxx in {user home}/.android/adb_usb.ini. (Take a look at the three or four first posts of the thread, H_Bler explains this there)

    You can check if everything worked correctly with the ADB tools. In a command prompt, type "adb devices" and it should show your device and its number.

    Gaining Root:

    Download the file Root.exe (it's at the beginning of the article)

    Make sure your device is connected with USB debugging mode enabled and open Root.exe
    Everything will follow to a command prompt with a message:
    "script root
    Se a lista de devices estiver vazia, o script nao vai funcionar...
    List of devices attached
    (O seu dispositivo terá que aparecer aqui em baixo)
    Deseja ter acesso root
    [n] Deixar para depois"

    Write "s", push enter and the root process will begin...

    After all that i got my device with root. I've to say that i had this done twice (dunno what failed at first, but everything went ok the second time), and i had it rooted.

    I don't know what more to say, that's everything I did, I hope it works for you.
