root-mtk6589-hero-h7500+Note, the general process will be the same for most MTK phones, however do NOT use a scatter or recovery that isn’t made specifically for your phone. The recoveries included are for Hero H7500+/Zopo ZP800H/Zopo ZP810/Zopo ZP950H and exact clones of these phones. I’ve also written a newer post here

NOTE: We now have an updated thread on how to create TWRP custom recovery for the newer SoC China phones such as MT6735 MT6753, MT6755. This method does not require root. Please see the thread linked here. If you’ve got an older phone with MT65xx type SoC, you can continue on with this tutorial.

I take no responsibility for whatever evil may come to your phone from attempting to follow this procedure.

The theory behind rooting isn’t complicated. What we’re doing is replacing the stock recovery image with one that will allow us to inject rooting privileges.

What you’ll need:

Quick and dirty instructions at the forum

Extended root tutorial

What to do:

  1.  Extract the 2 downloads to a clean folder
  2.  Copy the superuser zip to your phone’s SD card
  3.  Navigate to MTK6589 ADB driver folder and Run install_driver.exe  regardless of whether you have 64 bit Windows or not, this is what you should run to install the driver. Running the other .exe does nothing. You should get a confirmation message saying the drivers installed successfully.
  4. To make sure the drivers have been installed and are properly recognizing your phone, plug your phone into the USB and open device manager on your PC. Confirm at the top of device manager you see “Android Phone” > “Android ADB”.
  5. Run flash_tool.exe from the previously extracted flash tools folder
  6. On the right side of the Flash Tool, you’ll see “scatter loading”. Click that box and navigate to and select the scatter file in ‘CWM and scatter’ folder from the previously extracted zip. Now in the bottom half of Flash Tool, you should see ‘Recovery’ checked and pointing to the CWM ‘recovery.img’ in the ‘CWM and scatter’ folder.
  7. Unplug your phone from the PC and turn it off. Some recommend a battery pull for a few seconds, but it wasn’t a step I took.
  8. In Flash Tools, at the top click the “Download” box. A warning will come up saying not all boxes are checked. Click ‘Yes’.
  9. Now you’re at the point of no return. Plug your phone back into USB. You’ll see the % bar at the bottom of Flash Tools increasing in different colors. At the end you’ll see a green circle in the middle of the screen confirming all has been completed successfully. Shouldn’t take more than a few seconds.
  10. Now boot into recovery by holding UPVolume and the powerbutton. Hold them until you see the dead Android bot, then hit the power button. Your recovery should be blue. That means you’re in CWM.
  11. Select update from SD in CWM recovery
  12. Navigate with the volume buttons to the previously copied superuser zip and select it with the power button
  13. Navigate to ‘Yes’ and select with the power button
  14. Bam, it will install superuser. You are now rooted.
  15. Reboot and search “root checker” on google play. There are several. Assuming all went well, you will see a dialog asking for root privileges. Alternatively, run whatever software you know requires root access and it will request root access if all went well.

Please post a comment here, or even better – join the forum and let us know how it worked out for you. I will try to answer any questions you might have as well.
