Does adb detect your phone when you run adb devices?

if you need a scatter file compatible with SPft, then you need download an SP flashable rom for your build OR dump the firmware of your device in scatter file format using Wwr_tool or a hardware box / dongle such as CM2

OK.. If I'm reading thus correctly, I should get a SP flash able rom n then extract the scatter file from it and then put in the same folder with the recovery
and then using it to install a custom recovery for my phone. You should know my phone is not rooted, it's because I want to root it that's why I'm installing a recovery.

check the first post in this thread, SPft is not needed OR better still you can root using the guide @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-21427.html

OK I'll try this way. Can I use another Camon Cx air'so build number?


RE: How to root the Tecno Camon CX Air - J3rry1 - 04-17-2018

Can you just port a recovery for my TECNO Cx build number ( CXAir-H3713A-N-17207V139)? So I can use SPFL. I understand that tool better.
