[Development] How to root Gionee Elife S Plus (Lollipop)

#1

[Image: How-to-root-Gionee-Elife-S-Plus.png]

The Gionee Elife S Plus is a 155 x 76.4 x 7.5 mm Android phone running on OS 5.1.1 (Lollipop), a Mediatek MT6753 Chipset, an Octa-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and a removable Li-Ion 3150 mAh battery. In this brief guide, I’ll be explaining how to flash Clockworkmod recovery to the Gionee Elife S Plus and root it easily.

How do I root the Gionee Elife S Plus?

Don’t panic. It’s just a normal warning you’ll get after rooting. Do not allow the phone to attempt any repairs.
If you wish to install an OTA update then unroot using https://blog.hovatek.com/how-to-unroot-a...ta-update/

Sir i have a problem with my gionee s plus. After a full wipe my phone stuck at “checking connection”. So i flashed with the firmware found in Hovatek. Since then i have invalid imei, i followed the tutorial using Camelephon since the mtk ingeneering method didn’t work. Now the imei shows something like this 5www3##www and 5www3##www*w28. Please help me how can i fix this issue

My gionee s plus is having a bug with its accessibility. Every time apps those asking for accessibility goes off after some time. It irks me to turn it on each and every time. Mainly like applockers, memory cleaners, anti viruses etc…like these apps are hard to use. Please help me to get any update or something else.
Is there any stock ROM available for gionee s plus to flash? I am interested in google’s official marshmallow ROM. Please help me ….waiting for your reply .

Hey Hovatek,

Fantastic work on that recovery, it’s a precious piece of work for our Gionee S Plus. Do you know the Gionee S Plus had an OTA update to Marshmallow yesterday? It’s great but the hovatek recovery unfortunately does not work on S Plus Marshmallow. Is it possible to upgrade it to work? I can’t use the phone till i have a recovery to root the phone, since in build.prop there’s some lines that include Statistics SMS sending, which pounds my Vodafone bill every day. Pls give some feedback. Thanks
