    Ive been at it all day but i cant get my phone to root, ive tried tons of rootprograms but they all failed and the 2 that were actually tested with my phone also didnt work (shuame and SRS tooL) it is always unable to make backups or copy stuff and i never get the screen restore on my phone screen, my phone is connected in debugging mode.

    It runs android 4.1.2 and i can dl apps from the playstore.

    If any1 could help me with this i would be grateful :)

  5. You can try Unlockroot . I was able to root mine with it.
    Hope it helps.

    Something to bare in mind as this is a generic rooting tool, so when trying to root counterfeit iPhones, or pretty much counterfeit anything. It's very often an unknown and you're taking a big chance. Three things could happen:

    1) It roots it successfully, and you're happy.
    2) It doesn't work at all, and you're not so happy.
    3) It irreparably corrupts and bricks your phone, and you're extremely unhappy.

    Use at your own risk!!

    I have a similar problem - bought an ALPS iPhone 5 MTK 6589 from China, a lovely phone but am not able to install the Google Play Store - Any help will be a great news.

    I have been able to successfully root this phone with SP Flash tool. If anyone is still interested, I can find the link to the tutorial. (its pretty complex).

    Hi guys, I have the same device. How were you able to install the USB drivers? Because when I plugged in my device it detects as "Unknown Device" in the USB Category. I've tried a bunch of MTK 65xx drivers, ADB drivers, Install from disk (.inf file), even tried Pda.Net but still can't install the usb drivers.
