HOW TO ROOT OR INSTALL PLAY STORE/GAPPS: (download the necessary files here)
- Turn on USB debugging in the phone, connect phone with PC via USB
- The first thing to do is to flash a custom recovery to the phone
- Download and unzip TWRP-Recovery.rar on the PC - unzip into some normal folders, remove Chinese text from folder names to avoid problems!
- Run "recovery.bat" on the PC (if it is called "刷recovery.bat" I recommend to rename it to just "recovery.bat" (the phone has to be on and connected to the PC) - this should flash the custom recovery to the phone via adb - you may get a popup on the phones screen, where you have to "Allow this computer", then press enter 2-3 times in the command prompt that popped up on your PC with some Chinese text, and the phone will then reboot itself into first FASTBOOT (and display some text) and then into the recovery.
(if you have the correct scatter file, you can also just flash the recovery.img with SP Flash Tool).
- Download, and copy the zip to the phone (do not unzip it).
- Startup TWRP Recovery on the phone (power off, hold power button plus volume up at the same time in the beginning)
- With TWRP Recovery (the buttons will have Chinese text, but everything is like the normal TWRP) or another custom recovery flash the for ROOT (the "Install" button is the first box in TWRP).
- Or if you want the Play Store/Gapps, install instead the (do not unzip).
- To install a ROM it is the same procedure, just instead choose the ROM zip file. A wipe/cache and factory reset is recommended after flashing a new ROM.
- Reboot, and the phone should now be rooted/have the Play Store installed.
