Default Guide: How to root the Flytouch 3

By Poweruser77

Hi all, I have made some tests on how to root the flytouch 3 and finally I found a solution. I'm going to share it here:

http://thebelv.altervista.org/Flytouch3/rooting/rooting_flytouch3.html

Please don't look at the poor graphics because I really have no time so I put everything into a word file and just exported it as a web page

Hope it helps anyway
Regards

From mutari:
Lets give thanks to Poweruser77.

I tried this method and it worked. I had to figure out an alternate way because the screens didn't come up in the order specified.
Once i figure out what i did, I'll post a step by step guide.

Here are the steps that worked for me:
1. LauncherPro
2. Menu
3. Add
4. Shortcuts
5. Activities
6. Settings
7. Development
8. Development, OK
9. Development, Check USB Debugging
10. z4root.1.3.0

SetCPU isn't going to work without an overclock kernel... so you either need to find a compatible kernel or no overclock for this device. Basically if you feel like playing with it look for one of the custom kernels (like Chevy's) that supports this ARM'ish processor.

Mixterz, in launcher pro the tutorial should say choose activities NOT shortcut. Go under activities then settings and you will find "Development"

ok, So now we have it rooted, Please tell me what can be done to improve this toy.
Will we be able to use Flash, live wallpaper, etc?

I'm a novice in this area. I read a lot about rooting the flytouch 3. What does it mean if a Flytouch is rooted and what's the advantage (and what are the risks)?

Welcome to the forum elge. Rooting is basically going to allow you to do a few things you couldn't otherwise, such as use titanium backup to backup your apps and data, or use metamorph to change your system icons. To put it simply you can get more out of your system because it's rooted. The biggest risk is bricking your tablet, or if you're not careful about the apps you install, you could install malware on your tablet and have to do a factory reset. You can still install malware without root but you're opening pandora's box basically. With Z4root, you can temporarily grant root access which is very nice and probably the best option until you get comfortable with everything. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

Factory reset is easy, just power off the tablet. Then power it back on holding power, menu and back(the big circle) wait a moment and you'll see a message indicating that you're in recovery mode and 5 minutes later you're back to factory.

Hi mr Smith, I tried Z4root but the app says I have to do usb debugging in settings/applications/development but on my flytouch I don't have the menu option development. Is there another way for usb debugging I also tried launcher pro but couldn't open that app. Please advice.

Elge. I posted in the root thread about this. But to answer your other question, after you download launcher pro, hit the home button. You'll be prompted with which launcher you'd like to use, choose launcher pro. Follow the rest of the instructions and bam you're rooted baby

Hi, I have a major problem. I already rooted my flytouch 3 using button savior, launcher pro and z4root with success. Finally I got it done. The button savior will give you the option to enable usb bugging. Anyways it froze last nite so I did a factory reset and all was good. Today it froze a little. For some odd reason, I went in and uninstalled launcher pro. Now the flytouch is messed up. I can power up and unlock but I can't do anything else. A message saying "Infomtic Home Launcher is not responding. Can you or anyone else out there help me to get it going again. I would greatly appreciate it very much. Thanks

Hi, I have a problem with the battery (draining very quickly), so I want to root my FlyTouch 3 and delete the battery stats.
But, is the root operation 100% safe?
I bought my tablet from China and I really don't want to screw it up completely.
I was thinking of using temporary root, delete stats file, go back to normal use (not rooted).
Is this 100% safe? In case of problems, is there a recovery procedure?

That procedure works for me...but I have Tims4e firmware installed...so I don't need to turn USB debugging on as the firmware roots the device anyway....the development tab missing is probably down to your firmware......

You can read all about the custom firmware here Hybrid ROM (rooted) and make your own mind up but apart from cutting edge niggles I doubt you will find anyone saying its worse that the default firmware!!

The tutorial at the top is correct. To get to development, whether you press the home screen to bring up the menu or bring it up from the menu button you have to hit add+shortcuts+activities+settings to get to development.

If you are not seeing it then maybe there is a version issue with Launcher Pro.

Hello Dears,

I did this procedure once, and worked. But recently i reseted my tablet, and now i can't find the Development by the Laucher Pro. What could be the problem? In case i've excluded the development archive, there is a way to recover, download, restore, or something useful?

Thanks for answering

Hi all, I have made some tests on how to root the flytouch 3 and finally I found a solution. I'm going to share it here:

http://thebelv.altervista.org/Flytouch3/rooting/rooting_flytouch3.html

Please don't look at the poor graphics because I really have no time so I put everything into a word file and just exported it as a web page

Hope it helps anyway
Regards

From mutari:
Lets give thanks to Poweruser77.

I tried this method and it worked. I had to figure out an alternate way because the screens didn't come up in the order specified.
Once i figure out what i did, I'll post a step by step guide.

Here are the steps that worked for me:
1. LauncherPro
2. Menu
3. Add
4. Shortcuts
5. Activities
6. Settings
7. Development
8. Development, OK
9. Development, Check USB Debugging
10. z4root.1.3.0
good afternoon, done all above but where do i find z4root? not in the market

Kinds Regards and thank you very much for your help

Hi all,

Before I try this, will this method work with the specs below?

Android Version: 2.3.3
Kernel Version: 2.6.35.7-infoTM suixing@fael #56
Build Number: GRI40

I think this root process was intended for 2.2, but my new tablet (I *think* is a FT 3, it has 1 tf slot) says 2.3.3

Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.
Oy.

Have you tried a different cable?... I'm afraid I have a Disco model, which does not have a OTG USB port, perhaps someone with one of the newer models that does have an OTG port can advise you if a driver is required......other than that, there are wifi apps as toscal says... or use a flash key to transfer files.

Getting the tablet identified on a PC is only half the battle, AFAIK there is no SAMBA client for Android, so the tablets' folders wont appear in Windows Explorer, and you wont be able to map a drive to the FT3...(but I stand ready to be corrected )

Default Hi there people please help me

I just got the flytouch3 disco. I am trying to root it. I get everything installed and then when I get to launch the z4root I pick perminate and the it reboots. After that everything is gone. My pro launcher my z4root. It's like I didn't do anything. So then I tried to go to market and just pick something and download it. After that I turn off the flytouch...turn it back on and go to apps and it's gone. It erases my apps after reboot. Wtf? Can someone please help a girl out. I'm new to all this and really have no idea what some of you are even talking about.....I'm getting it tho but I can't return this machine and it's making me mad!!!!!! Please help me

Many people have tablets that have suffered from this problem. There is a fix, READ THIS. I would suggest you don't bother with the first fix and go straight to the 'replace the internal tf card' once you have found, and downloaded some firmware for your tablet. As you have a Disco model i suggest you look at Tim's firmware HERE.. it is pre-rooted so no need to root it after installing it.

You could try just flashing Tims firmware without replacing the internal tf card as the card will get partitioned during the flashing....but it might just forget the changes when you re-boot, and even if it works, the problem may well return as the root cause of the problem is still there.....
