download the zip file from https://yadi.sk/d/3KMQy4xxgYnWu
next, flash the recovery image to your phone using Sp flash tool guide ( https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-159.html )
after that, flash the BETA-SuperSU-v2.49.zip in recovery mode

if you have problems saving to SD card after rooting then install nextapp.sdfix.ver.0.7.build.7.apk uploaded at https://yadi.sk/d/nx3fuKBJgYnm2

please I don't understand what you mean by flash recovery image please explain more on that flashing because I have not done such before.
to elaborate more concerning my issue.my elephone G2 internal memory refuse to show in my system after connecting it to the system. is only the SD card that I can only see.2ndly if I try to download app through opera I will not be able to see my SD card in order to download the app to it.this is also applicable to my flash share app I can only see my phone memory while my SD card will not display.
3rdly I need to root the phone
Can rooting the phone help me solve the problem?
so brother put me through because am ready to learn.thanks in anticipation

you should do that first. Settings > Storage > Factory reset
ensure to backup your phone contacts , messages and any files saved on phone storage
SD card shouldnt be affected

when the phone stopped receiving network I took it to tecno care & I end up waiting for exactly 2months for them to correct it.
so what are you telling me now to do concerning the above problem?

just to be on a safe side, download the firmware for the phone before you attempt fixing the above errors...... just in case
