SORRY JUST REALIZED IT SHOULD BE POSTED IN THE DEVELOP FORUM
WILL POST THERE, YOU CAN DELETE THIS


Hello,

First of all, this forums seems to be the heaven of MTK phones...
So let's give it a shot :-)

I have a Wiko Sunny device (MTK6580) with stock android 6.0.1 and want to root it.

I've spend hours on figuring out what to do (one click root tools, SP Flash, MTK Droid tools, ...) but nothing seems to work.

I think that I need a custom recovery for my device, but can't find it anywhere.
TWRP doesn't list my device and there seems to be a method to flash custom CMW recovery through MTK Droid Tools, but this tool doesn't work either as you will see below.
It recognises my device, but when I try to root and select the stock rom's boot.img and recovery.img (downloaded from the net) it gives me this error:

--->>> Connect to device <<<---
--- ERROR : --- TotalBytesPerChunk Not Found. Set default Page/Spare=2048/64 !!!
--- Unknown ROM structure, backup NOT possible!
ATTENTION! File /system/recovery-from-boot.p which restore factory recovery in case of phone switching on in a normal mode Is Found!
error: only position independent executables (PIE) are supported.
ATTENTION! Requests for confirmation on the device screen are possible!
--- ERROR : SU inaccessible
--- Through CWM it is possible to get root on this phone! Look URLs :
http://forum.china-iphone.ru/viewtopic.p...84#p502084
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost...ostcount=5

On this forum I tried to look for solution for the TotalBytesPerChunk error so I installed busybox (doesn't open since it can't access a certain root folder and closes), I redownloaded MTK droid, my SD card is empty (32gb).

So not sure what to do now.

I think the custom recovery is key, because SP Flash tool works with the original recovery img. I thought I bricked my phone but reflashed all stock files and it came back to live. So my guess is that I need the custom recovery for this phone?

From there on I can flash the supersu.zip and I'm good to go, right?

Many many thanks!

Thanks for the files!

I performed the following steps:

Flashed all stock files back to the phone to make sure everything is stock.
activated developper settings and unlocked bootloader through the adb commands as described on a topic here.
booted back up, activated developper settings again and put the supersu zip on the sd and phone.
shut down, opened SP flash tool and selected the scatter you uploaded with the recovery.img in the same folder.

SP Flash only showed the recovery img (which is expect is normal) and I flashed it successfully (no errors).

Powered back up with volume up to enter recovery.
First it shows the android laying on his back with red triangle, but when I press power again, it goes to the stock recovery and not TWRP...

Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Thanks so much... why can't this just work..... Smile

This is more common than you might think.
Try flashing the recovery image 3 consecutive times before you try booting into recovery mode.
If that fails then we go for the fastboot option.
For the fastboot option, there are two techniques we'll consider

2. https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-15271.html

Still no success...
I flashed it through SP tools multiple times, but still no TWRP.

Then the adb solution didn't help either. Both methodes transfer the file successfully, but then the phone doesn't respond to anything.
In your instructions, I had to push the volume up and power button to reboot in recovery, but it doesn't respond.
So I have to take out the battery and reboot then into recovery, with still the stock recovery showing up...

Any idea what's going on? Maybe something with the .img itself?

Thanks for the help!!
