  • Francisco Reyes Oviedo

    This works only if you guys have the MAY 23 firmware if you already updated to the one from JULY 23 you cant root the phone,the only way to do this is to downgrade with KDZ flasher using a firmware from the date i wrote.

    • http://www.androidteen.com/ androidteen

      Thanks for the clarification.

  • Francisco Reyes Oviedo

    download the firmware from official page:

  • Yoloswag

    So if i want to root my phone i have to wait for a farmaroot’s new version or do i have to downgrade my frimware?

    • http://www.androidteen.com/ androidteen

      Most probably yes, you need to downgrade to previous firmware to root. Else, we will provide the root method once it is available.

    • Francisco Reyes Oviedo
