[HELP]TWRP & ROOT for LAVA iris 820 - MT6580

#1

I have a LAVA iris 820 device with Android MM. It's a MT6580, and unlocked.

I have the stock ROM with its scatter.txt file, and also a full partition backup via the Miracle Box. All these files are in .bin extension (eg. boot.bin, recovery.bin).

I was able to obtain boot.img and recovery.img (each 16MB) via readback function of SP Flash Tool. But, when tried to create a patched boot and recovery images via MTK Droid Tool, it failed with the error, "ERROR :No Split Boot Image". Several blogs mentioned that MTK Droid Tool not compatible with MT6580 devices.

I tried all available one-click rooting methods like KingROOT, but they failed. Miracle Box has a rooting option, but it also failed, and ended-up just saving a boot.img to the PC.

Out of the box, this phone doesn't come with a workable stock recovery--it just displays an android logo with "no command".

Appreciate very much if anyone kindly help me or guide me to a method which can port TWRP recovery and/or root my device.

Thanks! Smile

You'll need to root via custom recovery.
We'll be happy to help port one so you can root your phone.
Zip and upload recovery.img and scatter file from the stock ROM then drop the download link here
