(This post was last modified: 07-15-2017, 10:02 AM by SyahX. )

Hi, I have a fake samsung galaxy s8 plus replica and I want to root it. I tried all types of root software with pc and without pc but my phone still can't be rooted. I try to install supersu from stock recovery by using option Install an update from my sd card, but the zip file of supersu not appear in my recovery...I really want to root my device so that I can change to the smoother rom Sad..Btw, my fake samsung galaxy s8 plus have mediatek snapdragon in it and It appear to be MT 6580 type..

You will need custom recovery to root.
State the phone's
Build No.
Android Version.
Also, dump the phone ROM in scatter format and upload recovery.bin and scatter file to any cloud storage (e.g. Google Drive) then drop the link.

Uninstall all VCOM Drivers with the guide @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-7660.html

If your using windows 8/10 then disable Drivers signature verification, see https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-752.html

Then Re-install VCOM drivers, see https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-440.html

If still Miracle can't detect your phone, try running it on a windows 7 pc.
