[Development] How to root Tecno Camon C9

#1
(This post was last modified: 06-20-2017, 03:06 PM by hovatek. )

[Image: Hovatek-How-to-root-Tecno-Camon-C9.jpg]

The Tecno Camon C9 is yet another addition to Tecno’s collection of smartphones. This phone runs on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) making it still unsupported by our favorite one-click root apks (at the moment). By popular demand, Team Hovatek has come out with this rooting guide for Tecno C9 users.

How can I root my Tecno Camon C9?

There are two main steps:
  • Unlocking the Bootloader of the Tecno Camon C9
  • Flashing the Hovatek TWRP recovery.img and SuperSU.zip
Procedure
Code:
fastboot boot recovery.img
  • The phone should automatically boot into TWRP recovery mode
  • In TWRP, if you get a prompt asking you to swipe to allow modification of the System partition, tap KEEP READ ONLY
  • If TWRP offers to root the phone, select NO
  • In TWRP recovery, tap Install
  • Navigate to the location of the SuperSU.zip on SD card 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
  • After rooting, If you want Clockworkmod recovery, download CWM for Tecno Camon C9 ported by Team Hovatek at https://hovatek.com/redirect.php?link=ht...mMzSXlUSlU and flash it using Rashr.apk (Install from Playstore)

Have not been able to complete the procedure

Scared of bricking my phone again

If i can get a manual procedure on how to revive the phone if it bricks again, it will make things easy

It’s very important you follow the guide above to avoid bricking your phone.
Make a dump of all partitions using the scatter format following the guide @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-13347.html

The guide above says to use TWRP, not CWM
REPLY
don_fufu says:
August 19, 2016 at 5:05 pm
I guess the problem is not the build number….but rather if you are rooting it after the 2 updates or not. Because I bricked mine and couldn’t revive it untill I went to tecno carlcare. And I won’t root it again untill Hovatek uploads a backup rom just incase. So I’d like to advice people if they want to root it- to root it before the 2 updates at least for now.
REPLY
Hovatek says:
August 19, 2016 at 5:28 pm
The mistake many people are making is that they’re not reading the above guide carefully.
Did you TWRP or CWM when attempting to root?

I attempted CWM then after I TWRP…. But when attempting to unbrick i stucked there in TWRP.

I have downloaded the mediatek usb com and miracle box I successfully unzipped mediatek and installed it but each time I try unzipping miracle box it keeps writing this :- [ invalid compressed data to extract ] and then I clicked OK so it will continue with the zip extraction

Then the WinZip asks me if I will like WinZip to try to continue with the next file. which i clicked yes but after the extraction it will display this Message on my pc :-[Winzip encountered problems during operation] then i opened the Unzipped miracle box folder and I noticed that some files outside the extracted folders are missing on my PC and when I tried installing it just show the miracle box symbol as if it will install and bounce back without installing.. And from your tutorial video on installation of miracle box these are the files I noticed that they are in ur miracle box folder after u unziped your own in your tutorial video….
But are not in my own after I unzipped my own
1. Miracle_box Truly for China mobile [shortcut] 2KB

2. Miracle_box [application] 45,007 KB

I guess this number 2 is the reason why the app didn’t install when I clicked on miracle_loader_2.27A

1 adb devices
2 adb reboot-bootloader
3 fast boot OEM unlock
4) fastboot reboot recovery.IMG

It showed me the installation page like u said I tapped on keep read only then install selected super su then the installation started but at the end it showed a message in red colour updating partition details..

Failed to mount /data invalid argument

Then below the message it showed two options delete catches and Reboot system I clicked on Reboot system the phone showed the tecno booting logo then went blast for 2 seconds then showed the symbol again then showed erasing then rebooted then I installed the root checker
And the root checker displayed

Now I understand why we bricked our phones.. This Rooting has two stages

The first stage is the unlocking of bootloader
And the code for that one stopped at [fast boot reboot] then you hit enter button on your PC.

Now allow the phone to boot till it powers on. Then set up your phone language and the rest… Till you get to the normal phone front menu.

Now Stage 2

Then remove the USB from your phone. And put it back it will ask you to allow access from computer click on yes.

Now enter d codes
1 [Adb devices] and click enter button

Now enter second code
2 [adb reboot bootloader] click enter button

Now enter the Third and last code..

3 [fastboot boot recovery.img]
Now u are almost done

Follow the guide above and install the supersu as instructed ..

Once again thank u guys thank u hovatek

The SuperSu in my Tecno C9 now says there’s no binary. So i have lost root privileges even after re rooting it second and third time.

Does the SuperSU app still appear in app drawer.
Also, what did you do before this began?
