    Is it possible to gain root by using adb to push su file into system/bin or x bin from an already rooted rom then installing the su app that was with that same su file to begin with then open su app open preferences and search and let it upgrade the binary files then we should have root but no recovery am i close to being right or what?

    So You're Trying To Push A Superuser.apk File From An Already Rooted Android Device To A System Folder And Update The SU Binary On The Coolpad And Gain Root Access. I Dont Think That'll Work
    The Coolpad Needs An Exploit That Will Root It, But I Think You And Try And See What Will Happen.

    No when i made roms for admire sometimes i would take the su file from an old roms
    xbin or bin and put it in my roms xbin or bin then take the su app that was in that same rom and install it in system apps and because the su file was in the bin or xbin the su app would find it and it would be rooted automatically but since your from the admire think of it just like the 2.3.6. Root zip we had to install remember? then we had to "update anyway" and it wiould create root do you remember that?

    you cant write to the system folder without root.
    you cant fake a OEM's key.
    You cant flash an update.zip without it being signed.

    Once you get root you can put su and superuser wherever you like, enjoy the irony? cuz that is how it all works :/
