How To Root Tecno n3 Android Phone

How to root Tecno n3 android phone.


WARNING: ROOTING YOUR PHONE WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY
ROOTING your phone is a proccess to gain "control" over your device, just like in the PC world getting an administrator rights. There are ups and downs in this process. For you to understand fully, you can search the google about rooting an android device. Then if you decide to Root your phone, then, it is your own choice. Do not blame me or anyone if something happen to your device while performing this method. Read the instruction carefully make sure you understand what you are doing and what will you do.
This warning means you are compromising your phone's security and warranty.

To gain root access, you have to perform the root method by installing POOT apk and MINISTRO II apk.
Download: Poot Tecno n3
Download: Ministro II library(from Google play store)
To ROOT your TECNO N3 is simple
Just install POOT apk to internal memory and run the apps. it will require you to install MINISTRO II, you'll get -error like "update minstro library", just update through google play store.
Then proceed again to the next step. After installing and updating all the libraries of QT, your phone will automatically reboot(or reboot manually)
You'll get two buttons
1. "press here to poot"
2. "built in root check
Click on the first button to poot and wait till you have 3 buttons
, That means you are now rooted.
You can now complete the process by downloading super user application from the play store

  6. If phone vibrate n goes blank try this steps.
    1- enable usb debuging
    2- change location of install app to fone memory.
    3- uninstall pook and ministro
    4-reboot N3 and reinstall pook and ministro II
    5-Make sure you have internet connection so as to update ministro binary
    6-restart your N3 after the update
    7-unmount sdcard and run pook
    8-select the 1st option and wait. if pook display install superuser then u hv sucessfully root your N3.
    If phone vibrate n goes blank then remove battery n put it back. power the fone, as soon as it shows instaling sdcard quickly run pook and n press the first option.

    ReplyDelete
  7. ok I it works now. I just ignore the not properly rooted result by rootchecker and installed superuser and that was it. Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  8. still not working...!!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Make sure you have super user installed
    And if you get an error log like :"A demon materialized while pooting.Error code:87
    su binary was not written
    you need to restart your device"
    Reboot and keep trying
    Good luck.

  10. Thanx, it finally worked, patience is indeed a virtue.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I find it difficult to access my internal memory using the file explorer and ES explorer or even when it is connected to the laptop.I only can access the external sd. Hence cannot copy POOT file to it.
    Pls help

    ReplyDelete
  12. I guess this info is totally unique.
    click this link here now

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thanks it worked. so can i move the poot, ministro and superuser to the sd card. Will it affect anything?

    ReplyDelete
  14. so now that we can root N3. lets try and see if we can install custom roms!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yeah you can uninstall only poot and ministro

    ReplyDelete
  16. D anyone of you has stock rom for N3?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Am I doomed? No luck for me, despite factory reset and countless reboots. Not really countless, about 50 reboots so far, still getting su binary was not written.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Coincidence or not, I kept getting "su binary was not written" until I removed one of the 2 sim cards. Once I removed one of the SIM cards and used only the other, then I get this sublime message : "I think I am root, therefore I am root".

    Anyway, patience is a virtue.

    Googling about Nandroid backup now ...

    FAILED (remote: flash write failure)
    in fastboot… would you be having a solution to it or try running the commands in the link below to get the system.img from the phone from this link then upload them maybe to dropbox

    http://www.twobitcoder.com/?p=102

    or if you can, create a custom recovery with the instructions given in the link it will be great
    Really waiting for a response, thanks in advance

    You'll need to get the system.img file so that you can flash it via fastboot. Get someone with a rooted phone and do as the following link suggests

  90. Thanks for share this post I also share with you something hope you like my post. Keep your proof of purchase - Nokia and Samsung offer 24 month manufacturers warranty on their handsets, but reduced warranty times on accessories. Do not attempt a DIY repair. If a phone shows evidence that it has been dismantled the warranty will be void. Don’t get liquid or moisture near your phone. FoneFix are unable to repair liquid damage phones. Regularly back up your data – During the repair process, any data stored on the handset will be lost. We therefore recommend that you regularly back up any content to a PC or memory card. Contacts can also be saved to the sim card. Physical damage such as cracked LCD is not covered by the manufacturers warranty and will be subject to a chargeable repair.
