Hi,

Are there any public instructions available on how to root the Gionee S9 device?

Thanks in advance for any information!

What's the Build Number and do you have the firmware? Will need the stock recovery (and scatter file if available)

Amigo OS 3.5.6 (S9 release version)

Screenshot attached.

I have not tried to extract any partitions from the device.

Download the scatter file for your chipset @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-12724.html
get the values for start and length for revovery and boot from the scatter file
Using those values and the guide @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-526.html , readback both boot.img and recovery.img individually.
Skip the MTK droid tool part as you already have a scatter file.
Once done, upload the boot.img, recovery.img and scatter file

Note:

linear_start_addr = physical_start_addr = start
partition_size = length

I think the instructions are very clear. However, I cannot get the drivers to work (see attached screenshot). I have disabled the signed driver requirement in win10. So I really hope someone else is able to provide the image files.

Don't worry about the code 10 error. That's quite normal and doesn't mean the drivers wont work.
