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adb is out of date.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 :)

whoriesg capture

did you run the adb.exe before executing the root.exe (should be all in C:/..)? u dont need to create a system image and u cant do that without rooting your phone.

my device wasnt recognized by the pc either, only if i click 'manage files' from the USB options on the phone. but it will only take me as far as the contents of the SD card. for managing files, i use an FTP server (adding a network on your PC) via ES Folder app...

you mentioned swapping internal storage... are you thinking of using RAM EXPANDER? this wont work for cheap microSDs, it will but it will also shorten the lifespan of your microSD... u will have to purchase the legit expensive ones 16GB and/or 32GB from a known dealer/supplier for microSD strength and durability (due to constant reading and writing).

my wife's microSD started getting some errors after using RAM EXPANDER via the partiotined microSD.

i dont know how else i could help you as i don't see what's in front of your screen. try rereading the steps again from the start, maybe u just missed a tinsy little detail...

My device has been recognized already by downloading sdk files. i tried to open adb.exe by double clicking it and open the root.exe by also double clicking it. was that the right way? i copied the adb.exe files from the sdk folder that i have downloaded to make sure that my device has the same adb.

before that steps i tried some rooting tools such as srs one root and etc. those requires me to select restore pop up message on my device. however my device doesn't prompt a pop up message saying to restore my device. this cheap tab is driving me nuts. it only has 180mb internal storage and i bought 16gb sd which became useless because internal storage still consume some application space. i think of rooting the device to at least get a chance of eliminating internal storage to consume space. i tried to set the local storage to install to sd by adb shell.
and yet no changes.

if there's any option that you can do for me, it will be appreciated.

doomlord did not complete correctly

Great!! Glad it worked!!
But just please press the THANKS button, it's much better :D

Using your information I was able to get ADB to recognize my phone. When I ran DoomLord there were error on the last couple commands as shown in this image of the output attached. Is there a way for me to correct this?

Binary method

I'm a novice at this. I searched on that method and there is a warning that you should not use any backup/restore with CWM and the bigger problem is my phone doesn't seem to go into recovery mode when you power on holding the volume up and home buttons with the power on button. I've attached the specs of my phone.

Thank you for your prompt response.

I´ve got the same problem. Can´t root using z4root, DoomLord, unlock root, etc. My phone specs:

Model: GT-N9300 (White)
Android Version: 4.0.3
Baseband: DM_BASE_12A_W12.43|sc6820_modem
Kernel version: 2.6.35.7
Software Version: 6820_2.3.5_C909_hteng_s2_en_v04
Hardware Version: 1.1.0

adb detects the device but tools can´t root it. X-Ray says the phone has no known vulnerabilities.

please help me, i had an android phone here with a model A11 and got a problem about too many pattern attempts which need to be signed in by my google account, but it denies my valid username and password, but I can log the account through desktop. I don't have also any option on recovery mode to wipe its data. So I search about spreadtrum phones thread and I saw this. I already install the driver and it shows on the device manager, the problem is when I execute the procedure from H_Bler, my phone just stock on waiting on device. Don't know how to execute it. please help.

Not so useless app

Becareful, one or more of the apps you unstalled isn't so useless, it hapend with me once.
I removed all the apps tha I thought that were useless, some of them I didn't even know what to do with, and when I rebooted the screen woudn't stop blinking, I had to re install the apps one by one using ESexplorer's root tool installer function (through out the blikns) and reboot the device at every re-installation.

I don't know if is the same case, but for what i've read looks very similar.

Try it and see if it works.

Good Luck.

You sure like to live on the edge, LoL

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.

    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.
