| On 31, Jul 2013 | How To

Looking for a tutorial on how to root MyPhone A818i Duo? Well, finally! The rooting procedure for A818i Duo smartphone is now available, Thanks to Mr. Louie Ocampo – member of Pinoy tech forum – Phcorner.net. Well, I’ll give all credits to him & to Phcorner as well. Good jod!

Few months ago, we’ve posted an article about on how to root MyPhone A818 Slim Duo and a818 Slim Duo CWM rooting procedure, However! There are A818i Duo users always asking if these two procedures are the same process  for  their A818i Duo phone.

I must say that they are different, the A818 Slim Duo have a MT6573 that using MT6573_Android_scatter.txt and this is not compatible for A818i Duo while the A818i Duo is compatible to MTK6575. Well, not sure about that, please correct me if I’m wrong. Let’s proceed to the step-by-step procedures.

Files Needed:

  • MTK6575 driver – link | Mirror – link
  • MTK DROID Root and Tools – link | Mirror – link

Instructions:

  • Download first the MTK6575 driver and install it into your PC. (Make sure that you choose the right driver compatible for your Windows OS).
  • Once the driver is installed, go to this link, download the file provided in that site. (Follow the screenshot below).

  • Then install the file. How? See the images below.

  • After the installation, We need to enable the USB debugging. How? Go to settings > application > development and check/enable the USB debugging.
  • Connect your phone to your PC, enable USB connection to your phone then you’ll see a model of your phone (A818I DUO) appearing at the upper left of Ishuaji root tool. Follow the image below to gain root access to your phone.

  • After that, this window has come.

  • Then your phone will reboot three times but the important is don’t try to disconnect your phone to PC

  • After the rooting process, you will notice that your window will back in to the start, this time, you may now disconnect your phone from PC.
  • Open your phone, you will see the Chinese app installed but don’t worry about on this app, this is not a virus and it’s superuser  app in a Chinese character. Try to download root checker in playstore to check if your phone now is rooted.

Follow this step to gain root shell, superuser english version, mobile uncle tools, busybox and root explorer.

  • Download the MTK DROID Root and Tools (link provided above).
  • Unzip the file and run the MTKDROIDTOOL.EXE.
  • Connect your phone, make sure the USB debugging and USB connection are enabled, after that follow the image provided below (Note: Make sure the phone is ON)

      Sir, hindi ko alam kung paano i-install yung driver. Wala namang exe file duon sa driver file na binigay niyo kaya pumunta ako sa device manager at inupdate ko lang yung driver ng phone ko through “searching through for drivers on my computer”. May nahanap naman computer ko. Tinanong pa ako ng PC kung sure daw ba ako na dapat ko install yun kasi hindi raw verifiable ang author/source. I confirmed it at ngayon, updated na raw. Sinunod ko na yung mga step pero hindi natapos yung pagroot. Nawala yung page na may green bar nung hindi pa nangangalahati at bumalik yung page sa Home. Yun yung time na biglang may nag-pop out sa desktop ko na isa pang chinese app na ang logo ay isang colorful na bilog. So inulit ko na lang ulit. Ganun ulit nangyari. Hinintay ko baka part talaga ng process pero wala na talaga nangyayari. Ngayon, kung anu-anong app ang na-install sa phone ko. In-uninstall ko naman lahat… pero may isang app na ang size ay around 500Kb at ang logo ay isang gray hashtag na hindi pwede i-delete through “manage apps” at hindi talaga ito nawawala! Nabawasan din yung phone ko ng lagpas 10Mb at di ko alam bakit. Gusto ko magroot dahil gusto ko magsave ng internal memory space pero ngayon, hindi na nga gumana yung pagroot, nabawasan pa lalo internal memory ko. Tapos, everytime na mag-i-install ako ng App mula sa google play, laging may nag-po-pop out na window na may tatlong choices na hindi ko naman maintindihan kasi chinese. “ROOT” lang yung word na naiintindihan ko sa pop-out window na yun. Ngayon, sinubukan ko i-factory reset, pero nandun pa rin yung mystery App na yun at kulang pa rin internal memory ko.

      Ano ba ang dapat ko gawin? Ulitin ko ba process? Dahil ba ito sa hindi ko pag-install ng driver ng tama? Wala kasing instructions na maayos sa kung papaano i-install iyon. Nung chineck ko yung device manager, updated na talaga yung driver ko.

      Ito ang masasabi ko sa guide na ito: This isn’t a guide for dummies :(

      Pero ito pa lang ang guide na meron… at may mga nagsabing gumana naman daw sa kanila. :(

      Patulong, please! :)

      May way ba para ibalik na lang yung phone ko sa dati? :)

    Sir ask lang po. May mali po ba sa paginstall sa first step? Pagka-extract ko po, ni-right click ko po yung usb2ser_2kXP since XP po OS ng pc ko and 32-bit sya. Nagtataka lang po ako dahil ganto po ang lumalabas sakin sa halip na A818i Duo na lalabas sa upper left corner. Thanks po

  • jet

    Sir, hindi ko alam kung paano i-install yung driver. Wala namang exe file duon sa driver file na binigay niyo kaya pumunta ako sa device manager at inupdate ko lang yung driver ng phone ko through browsing. Updated naman daw. Ginawa ko na lahat ng step pero hindi natapos yung pagroot. Nawala yung page na may green bar nung hindi pa nangangalahati at bumalik yung page sa Home. So inulit ko na lang ulit. Ganun ulit nangyari. Hinintay ko baka part talaga ng process pero hindi talaga siya part. Ngayon, kung anu-anong app ang nainstall sa phone ko. In-uninstall ko naman lahat… pero may isang app na ang size ay around 500Kb at ang logo ay isang gray hashtag na hindi nawawala! Nabawasan din yung phone ko ng lagpas 10Mb at di ko alam bakit.

    Pero ito pa lang ang guide na meron… at may mga nagsabing gumana naman daw sa kanila. :(

    Ngayon patulong naman. Please! :)
    Kung may way para bumalik na lang sa dating state niya, paturo na rin please. :)

      make sure compatible yung usb drivers mo sa computer mo and yup sa device manager mo sya iinstall, pag po na detect na ng Ishuaji root tool yung brand ng phone mo ibig sabihin ok na yung usb drivers nya, at para dun sa rooting process pag successful na yung process nya may lalabas na dun sa phone mo na chinese apps kasama na dun yung superuser, mobile uncle tools, busybox and root explorer lahat po yun naka chinese ang pangalan, ngayon syaka naman tayo gagamit ng MTK DROID Root para gawin silang english version nasa taas lang po yung tutorial then pag ok na lahat syaka ka makakapag bura ng mga di mo kailangan na apps using root explorer. Hope magkaigi na phone mo then sana meron pa mapadaan para makatulong.

    • francel200

      yung USB driver po sa device manager mo sya iinstall, try mong iconnect yung phone po via USB cable bago mo iinstall. yung ibang gagamitin na files naman double click mo lang sila para ma-install
