    This is basically a rooting guide where I am going to tell you how to root Android phone and most importantly How to Root Mediatek Device. This guide works on any Mediatek Device (hopefully). I don’t know about the very latest Helio devices but this works for most of the other Mediatek chipsets. I strongly recommend you to go for a NANDROID backup as well as complete data backup and also please have all of your stock boot image, system image, bootloader images if any and be ready with a backup plan to execute if you endup with a bricked phone and also read the DISCLAIMER carefully. Before proceeding for the root process do some research on your own about the risks involved in Rooting a device if you are doing it for the first time. Don’t do this in hurry and make sure that you have at least 1 hour of time to spend with this rooting process.

    DISCLAIMER:
    Installing Custom ROM may require your phone’s bootloader to be UNLOCKED, which may VOID WARRANTY. Sometimes if not handled carefully then it may permanently damage your phone and prevent from BOOT. Understand that you are the only person making changes to the device. In case of any damage or any kind of loss as a consequence of this installation, Neither the Developer nor we can be held responsible.
