For those looking to root their UMi Super, the first step is to install TWRP custom recovery on the UMi Super. The process contains quite a few steps, but most of them take just a few seconds.

If it looks daunting, don’t worry, take each step one by one and you’ll come through with a rooted UMi Super within just a few minutes.

1. Download

KNOWLEDGE POINT about scatter files. Click here to read

NOTE: A scatter file is what tells SP Flash Tool where to flash various parts of the firmware on your phone’s EMMC.

This scatter came from 2016-06-16 UMi Super ROM. If you’re on a different ROM, it’s extremely unlikely the recovery.img location will change, but there’s always a slim possibility of it.

If you’re at all in doubt, download the ROM that you’re currently on if you don’t already have it downloaded, and use the scatter from that.

2. Install MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 preloader drivers

If you don’t already have MTK Preloader Drivers installed, we’ll go through that step now. NOTE: If you get an unsigned driver error and can’t continue with the driver install, then go to step #3. NOTE: Use #1 pack or #2 pack. Do not need to use both.

If MTK MediaTek preloader vcom driver pack #1, click here
  • Open the MTK adb vcom auto install driver pack #1 in WinRAR / unZip
  • No need to extract, double click DriverInstall.exe or installdrv64.exe for x64 bit Windows
  • Allow any permission requests
  • At the end you should see something like this
If MTK MediaTek preloader vcom driver pack #2, click here
  • Open the MTK MediaTek auto vcom driver install pack #2, and go to Win7_WinXP folder for 7 / XP, or Win8 folder for Windows 8 / Windows 10.
  • No need to extract, double click DriverInstall.exe
  • Allow any permission requests
  • When you see “Windows can’t verify the publisher of this driver software”, click “Install this driver software anyway”
  • At the end you should see something like this

3. Turn off driver signature enforcement

Do this step if:

  • You don’t already have MediaTek preloader drivers installed

and

  • Getting error from Windows telling you drivers are unsigned and can’t be installed with pack #1 or pack #2
Click for disable driver signature enforcement guide

To install preloader drivers, some users of 64-Bit Windows may need to disable Driver Signature Verification / Enforcement. This quick procedure will have you up and modding your phone in no time.

  1. Hold SHIFT while left-clicking restart. It’s the same for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.
    disable-driver-enforcement-1
  2. Your computer will reboot and give you various options. Select “Troubleshoot”.
    disable-driver-enforcement-2
  3. Choose “Advanced options”.
    disable-driver-enforcement-7
  4. Choose “Startup settings”.
    disable-driver-enforcement-3
  5. Select “Restart”.
  6. Select “Disable driver signature enforcement”.
    disable-driver-enforcement-6

Your computer will now reboot into a mode which will allow you to install unsigned drivers, which is covered in the next steps.

Now go back to step #2 and install the MTK Preloader Drivers (GizBeat source)

4. Install and run SP Flash Tool

  • After downloading the latest SP Flash Tool, extract it to a directory where you’ll know where it’s at.
  • Go to the extracted folder.
  • Right-click ‘flash_tool.exe’ and ‘Run as administrator’

5. Load the UMi Super scatter

  • If you haven’t already done so, extract the UMi Super TWRP and root pack to a folder where you’ll know where it’s at.
  • Select ‘scatter-loading’ from upper-right of SP Flash Tools.
  • Navigate to the folder that you extracted the UMi Super TWRP pack to
  • Select ‘MT6755_Android_scatter.txt’
  • A checklist of different parts of the ROM should then show in the bottom portion of SP Flash Tools.

6. Select the UMi Super TWRP custom recovery

  • If anything is selected besides ‘recovery.img’, deselect them all except ‘recovery.img’
  • Double click the ‘recovery.img’ line in MTK SP Flash Tool (see video at 02:00)
  • direct SP Flash Tool to the previously extracted UMi Super TWRP (‘recovery.img’ in the UMi Super TWRP pack)

7. Flash UMi Super TWRP

  • Make sure the phone is disconnected from PC and that your phone is powered off.
  • Make sure the box noted in the image above says ‘Download Only’
  • Select ‘download’ from the top of SP Flash Tools.
  • Connect USB cable to phone. Within a few seconds you should see a red bar come up. Wait a few more seconds and the flash should begin.
  • It will all be over in just a few seconds, at which point you should see a dialog from SP Flash Tools telling you the flash is complete.flash-okay-sp-flash-tool

8. Boot into UMi Super TWRP recovery and root

  • Disconnect your UMi Super from the PC.
  • Hold VolumeUp+Power until you see the UMi Super logo show, then release Power, but continue holding VolumeUp until you see the UMi Super booted into TWRP.
  • Flash / Install SuperSU.zip from the UMi Super Root pack.

Done! Good job. You now have TWRP and a rooted UMi Super MT6755.
