Rooting Tinji S3 MT6577 Part 1

Rooting Tinji S3 MT6577 Part 1


Things required

MediaTek USB VCOM drivers
TinjiS3Root.zip
SP Flash Tool v3.1222.00.7z
USB data cable
and ofcourse the Tinji s3 mobile ;)

This is my 4shared folder you will find all the necessary files for this tutorial.

Ok here is the tutorial how to do.

Step 1.
We need to install mediatek drivers
this can be done in two ways
1.Manually installing
2.Downloading and Installing PDANet from here

1.Manually installing

Right Click on My Computer,
Select “Manage”
Select “Device Mangager”
Connect your mobile(without battery) to PC with USB cable
It will present as “MT65XX Preloader” with a yellow color exclamation mark under folder of Port or Other device
Right click this “Mtk65xx Preloader” do it quick! (ps: XP system MT65xx ports fleeting, Win7 system will flash all the time. What we need to do is to capture it , then right-click, if the capture fails, disconnect the mobile, reconnect it again)
Select “Update driver”)
Choose “Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)” and “Next”
Choose “Browse”
Choose the right folder according to your computer system, if your OS is win 7 choose “win7”, XP os select “2K_XP_COM “ , Vista os choose “Visa” . Then click “yes”
Click “ Next”
Click “Finish”. Unplug the phone
Congratulations! Install driver successfully !!

2.Using PDANet

Just download the appropriate os version and install the PDAnet with mobile switched on and connected to pc via USB cable.


Make sure you have installed properly (Dont worry about the numbers like com7 etc it may vary in your system).




Step 2. (And this same guide can be used to flash recovery, stock rom etc)
Download SP Flash Tool v3.1222.00.7z from above link and extract in your computer
Download TinjiS3Root.zip and extract in your computer
Now power off your phone and remove the battery and don't connect it to pc now.
Now Open up SP Flash Tool, you should have something like this


Load the scatter file (MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc.txt) for your device and ignore any message that may appear.



And now click download and select "yes" for the warning.

Now connect your phone via USB and quickly put the battery and you will some process will keep going. Don't do anything until its 100% completed and see a green symbol.




After you see that green symbol you are done.

Now your mobile will be rooted.

Next part will be coming soon adding recovery and installing custom-rom...



Attention: Please follow the instructions carefully. I will not take any responsibility on whatever may happen with your phone.

    1. I am afraid you had chosen the wrong files which are not meant for tinji s3 instead you used hapai-x710d-mtk657... so anyways you can still flash a custom rom Download this file http://5198.ru/files/H640_77v01.01b06.rar and follow to
      and do the above steps making sure all the files are selected from scatter file ok?

  4. Thank you very much. You are performing an excellent work. Please, keep on it and many people, besides me will be thankful to you.
    I have a problem with the noise while calling. I hear the person on the other side, but they do not hear me. Instead they hear a rather unpleasant noise regardless on whether the external speaker of my phone is on or off.
    I have tested all the tricks suggested in the xda-developers forum (my nick is quiquesaiz) and some others on my own. For instance:
    I have tested all the ROM that I know about. At this moment I am using the german firmware, but I also have tested the taiwan v02 and vip v03 and ZBear - Tinji i9300 v.1.2.a that I found in an italian forum.
    I have entered into the test menu and tested the speaker and the loopback among speaker and microphone.
    I have entered into the engineer menu and tried to modify the audio parameters both in the normal mode and in the speech enhancement. However, I do not have a complete set of values for all those parameters. For instance, you give values for sph (except for level 0) but not for media or mic and you say nothing about speech enhancement. I think that it would be worth to prepare a short tutorial including the values of all those parameters, and even better, find out what configuration file contains all those setting and uploading a working copy.
    So far, nothing seems to work for me, so that any help provided will be more tyhan welcomed.
    Thank you again

  5. or may be you might have faulty hardware or serious bug even after trying all the ways..its better to send the device to seller and get it solved ...

    ReplyDelete
  6. Thank you for your quick reply. Of course, that would be the best way to solve the problem. however, I live in Spain and the phone came from Hong Kong so that even if the seller honored the warranty (and I have serious doubts about that), it would be complicated and expensive to send it back and forth. If it is a hardware problem I will be in troubles unless I find a local shop that could try to repair if.
    Thank you again.
