Hi guys Smile

I'm looking for a possibility to get root on Doogee X3 (MT6580) Android 6.0. I tried all of those rooting tools out there, but no one succeeded so far. I'm using TWRP 3.0.2
I hope you could help me out Heart

Update: Confirmed rooting guide at https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-15595-p...l#pid91231

If you have TWRP installed then just flash superSU 2.76

1. what version of supersu did you use?
2. did twrp offer to root the phone? If yes, what did you select
3. do you have the firmware and have you unbricked the phone?
4. If you're on Goolgle Hangouts, lets have your Gmail address

thank your for your reply. ok, i will try to answer your questions as best as possible Smile

1.
the very first time i tried to root was as TWRP asked me. as this didn't succeeded I tried supersu 2.78. didn't work too. Then I tried KingRoot, KingoRoot, iRoot etc. As everything failed I asked here for help Smile so then I tried supersu 2.76, mentioned in your reply. I also tried the aroma installer of supersu 2.78-SR1 from xda-developers and tried the systemless root.

2. see point 1. > then i never allowed TWRP to root.

3. yes, i'm familiar with flashing etc. so i have all i need to do the work Smile

4. i will PM you my gmail address Smile

It was a hard work, but I finally found a solution to root Doogee X3 running Android 6.0. Here is how it goes:

1. you need TWRP recovery. Here: http://www.needrom.com/download/twrp-for-android-6-0/
    - you will find there also the needed SuperSU. Trust me, I uploaded it there Big Grin

2. you need SuperSU-v2.61-20151207213702. Download from here if you didn't in the first step: http://www21.zippyshare.com/v/YpqXUZg1/file.html
    - put it in root of the external SD card (not sure if it would work if you put this file on the internal root storage)

3. enter TWRP recovery. If you are entering TWRP the first time you'll be asked if you want to enable write permission to system data. LEAVE IT AS READ ONLY ! (not sure whether it matters, but this is how I did)

4. install SuperSU zip file and reboot. If you get a question if you want to root, click NO.

- after phone is restarted, you'll see installed SuperSU in your drawer. If not, download SuperSU by Chainfire manually from the store.
- maybe you want to check root first. get any root checker app from the play store.
- start SuperSU app and update it.

This is the solution how you can root Doogee X3 running Android 6.0. I didn't lost root nor I got a boot stuck after updating SuperSU. So it's flawless. Don't try to install actual SuperSU 2.78 directly. It will not work and it's ending in a boot stuck.

I found out after updating SuperSU via app, that CCleaner shows a false root state. I prefer using Root Check
It will show you if you have busybox installed also. A must have for root users =)

Have fun guys ! I'll hope this will help some guys out there Smile
