MTK6580A Leagoo M5 TWRP download and MTK6580A Leagoo M5 root

This guide will help you install TWRP and root MTK6580A Leagoo M5, the first step is to install TWRP custom recovery on the MTK6580A Leagoo M5. 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 MTK6580A Leagoo M5 within just a few minutes.

1. Download

(click) What's a scatter file?

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

2. Install MediaTek MTK6580A MT6580A 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)

  • 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’
