Default Rooting UMX u670c android 2.3.6

Been searching for weeks, not been able to find a root that would work

Phone is umx u670c

Where I live, android phones are highly limited with what works and what don't.

This was the only phone we could find that would work with a prepaid system like net 10.

Took 2 hours on the phone with them to get it to even work. I live in a little rural town with 329 people lol. Country living and I love it.

What I like to know is if there is a safe way to root this phone so I can loose some bloat.

What I have tried

Superoneclick

Oneclickroot

Gingerbreak

Rooted

Any help would be great, thanks.

I don't think you'll be able to. Seems they're out of business.

UMX was just an importer, the phone itself is Chinese and of unknown manufacture. Which basically means it's almost impossible to find rooting information for it. And if the suggested rooting tools and drivers don't work, that's pretty much it.

I had the UMX model MAX, from Public Mobile, small carrier only in Montréal and Toronto, in Canada.

The UMX seems to be the distributor, as the manufacturer is Teleepoch, and the model is PMI920. This is Android 2.3.6 in CDMA/EvDo revA. type phone

don't waste your time or loose your money to tried to reach UMX... I've tried by email, even by phone, and guest what? The voicemail of Mr.UMX is FULL, goodbye!

When you press 0 for the operator, same thing, voice mail is full is you get flushed! no email back from UMX or Teleepoch.

However, I find the driver, don't know if will works on your model. both in 32 & 64 bits version.

good luck!

Thanks for the drivers. So far no luck, curious if you pull it off.

If you manage to root is successfully, please do share HOW you did it.

Some detail on a safe way would be great , carrier is net10.

Net 10

strait talk

Both are selling this phone like hot cakes. Good price when money is so tight.

hey guys... was just skimming through... i had a very similar phone with public mobile.. it was called the umx max and it was a piece of crap... it was manifactured by teleepoch in china and distributed by umx... the model numner from umx was the mxe 670

SMART PHONE - UMX

umx will offer no support what so ever i must have emailed them 20 timesand then the phone gave out on me for the second time and i switched to an other phone... is this your phone? you can get adb to work with pdanet, it has universal adb drivers and maybe from there you can try pulling your recovery img and build a clockwork recovery using the builder website:

Recovery Builder

and then once you have the cwm recovery you can try the "adb reboot bootloader" command and once in bootloader mode try the "fastboot flash recovery c:\recovery.img" (note that the cwm recovery you made has to be named recovery.img and place in the root of your c: drive).
then type "fastboot reboot" and push and hold vol up immediately and cwm recovery should pop up... figure the keys out...

then flash the superuser installer:

http://downloads.noshufou.netdna-cdn.com/superuser/Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed.zip

if everything goes well you should be rooted....

pm me if you have any questions because i don't thing i will be passing thru here again..... good luck

I made a big mistake... i wont delete this because there is still very useful info in here but this wont work because you need root to pull your recovery with adb..... sorry guys..

I have tried several different xploits that exist myself with zero luck so far on this phone too, it really could use a root with such a low internal memory.

Default may be helpful

I would like to point out that by installing ES file explorer apk from the market on this phone I am able to browse the internal memory now, and now possibly transfer the factory stuff over to my pc maybe it will be possible to get a ball rolling with that, if anyone out there has experience with creating a root method etc. lemme know if their is something I can extract from the internal storage that would help at least I can get into the root folder with es vs using adb in shell I cannot even enter the folder

Default okay is this what i need?

Okay I have found one file that seems to be interesting to me the platform.xml file and i am thinking this is what needs to be edited to give a root based off of what I am reading within however I am not sure how to set it manually from this point for instance...this is what is contained within and I can apparently read and write to this file.

EDIT: Cannot save it once edited.
