Rooting Tecno F7 by sfiea: 2:33pm On Jun 04, 2013
I insist I won't pay cool2012 a kobo.
All rooting system known to me hasn't worked.
But I have set up a committee, I can assure you we are on top of it. This phone is too awesome not to root.

Unless cool2012 repent... I disown him for now. I can always show my appreciation...

We can do this, yes we can.

sfi_ea: After much reading & discuss with great minds like Hollaslyd, you're very right @SeunPayne, the ro_security is locked, I will be back tomorrow and do hope Hollaslyd would have done the magic, if not, we're both on this. This baby is too awesome not to root.

For those version 1.0.14 isn't working, please use this version.

kingzoul: @sfi_ea
Here's the link for Eroot v1.3.3

or the complete package here (https://www.dropbox.com/s/3jolon9l8bj1u5o/Tecno%20F7%20Root%20Tools.rar)

Happy Rooting

This worked like a charm! (For those with restore issues)

Confirmed you had your version, it was coincidental we three ( my humble self, Hollaslyd & u) were working on the same project same minute & hour of the night. Cheers.

HOLLASLYD: to root this mt6577 thats got its bootloaders locked, you can either do that through a oneclick package or extract the boot.img and modify to remove security.
now here is what goes easy for you all.
1= must have a pc
2= must have a working internet connectivity
3= must have adb installed
4= must enable usb debugging
5= must root grin grin

download pda.net from google
install it when prompted for device type, press other
and you are good to connet as adb device
download ERoot-10.14.exe
extract with 7zip or winrar
run the ERoot-10.14.exe
ensure you have internet connectivity to enable eroot install 11mb of additional data
ignore the chinese language
enable usb debugging on your device by going to settings/ development option/ usb debugging
plug your device into the pc through the mini usb cable
now the ERoot will show a root button once it detects device
press root.
in 10 secs you are rooted.
look at your phone's homescreen you will find superuser.
once you have super user, reboot device manually and enjoy

Pls this thread should be dedicated to the subject matter only, thank you.
Re: Rooting Tecno F7 by sfiea: 7:35pm On Jun 04, 2013
I noticed my laptop detects 4 Google android devices, two ok (I.e. no issue/error icon attached) while the other two are with issues. I am not with my laptop as I write, I have downloaded the three drivers from this site

Google USB Driver
MTK OEM Drivers for F7 (I belief this OEM driver is the needed driver, still searching for this file, maybe calcare guys can help.)
MT6577 USB VCOM Drivers :


Will try & update the other two with each downloaded drivers, to see which one works. My belief is that d drivers are not complete or some files installed by moborobo or pda* are not for F7. If you noticed, moborobo shows a preview of F7 life view but can't display device, will ask you to refresh till infinity or contact...

Will b back this weekend and hopeful this will work even with Root with Restore by Bin4ry v17 to v30, they will work
Re: Rooting Tecno F7 by DahtDopeBoi(m): 9:16pm On Jun 04, 2013

Why can't We just behave like adults? You have the option to wait till It's everywhere which We all know it will soon be or pay to have the info now. I can tell you that rooting the f7 is more complicated than We are used to because the nand is locked. cube no beef because I understand you. I don't support you but I understand. now please the rest of use should be patient. And stop beefing. It's not by force.
