Thanks, it was helpful and working for me 100%...

NOTE: The link provided for "SuperSU 2.66.zip" is not correct it refers to "SuperSU-2.76-STABLE-sprout.zip" which is an APK package can't be flashed from TWRP...

How do I root the Tecno W3?

Install VCOM drivers on your PC using https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-440.html
Download SuperSU 2.66.zip at https://hovatek.com/redirect.php?link=ht...t=download
Copy SuperSU.zip to both the phone’s SD card and internal storage
Download TWRP for Tecno W3 ported by Team Hovatek at https://hovatek.com/redirect.php?link=ht...t=download
Switch off the phone (still with battery inside)
Flash the TWRP recovery.img to the phone using SP Flash tool @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-159.html
Boot the phone into recovery mode using Volume up button + Power button
In TWRP, if you get a prompt asking you to swipe to allow TWRP modify the system partition then go ahead and swipe. To swipe, place your finger on the green circle then slide it to the right
In TWRP recovery, tap Install
Navigate to the location of the SuperSU.zip and select it
Swipe to confirm flashing of SuperSU.zip and wait till flashing is complete
Reboot the phone normally
Confirm Root by installing and running Root Checker @ https://hovatek.com/redirect.php?link=ht...heck&hl=en

Please check your load matches to your target which is to be downloaded.

Its either you're flashing incorrectly or yours is a different variant.
