Root Tecno L3

I rooted my Tecno L3 this morning, it was as simple as rooting Tecno P3 and N3. To root our Tecno L3, the first thing to do is to update our DRIVERS. The first thing to do is to update the drivers of the Computer or Laptop you are using. Download the file below, It is just 342 kb and will not take up to 5 minutes to download.
My Credit goes to the Dmedallion of guruslodge.com for this article
Download MT6577 USB VCOM Driver (W7/Vista/XP) by visiting this Link
http://www.mediafire.com/download/7ck721ec4i70q2c/MT6577_USB_VCOM_drivers.rar

After downloading, unzip the file.

1 : Open Device Manager in Windows. [Right Click on My Computer icon on Desktop then click on Manage after it click on Device Manager]

2 : Now TURN OFF your phone !!!. (I mean turn it OFF) and Plug into Computer via USB cable. You will see MT65xx Preloader in Device Manager.

Note : If you are not seeing this try removing battery from mobile and plug into computer without battery.

3 : Now double click on Installdriver.exe to run it (the file is in the folder you just unzipped, a popup appears asking whether to install unsigned drivers or block, click on install it anyway. After it a confirmation dialog box will appear telling you Successfully installed usb drivers. Note : This will only appear in Windows 7 and later versions.
4 : Restart your Computer or Laptop.

5 : After rebooting, "Open device manager" again and DON'T TURN ON your Phone !!!. Plug it into same usb port. Now MediaTek PreLoader USB VCOM port will appear in device manager. (If you are not fast you will not even see it because it will appear and disappear quickly)

6 : Now right click on it (MediaTek PreLoader USB VCOM) and click on Properties then select DRIVER TAB, then click on UPDATE DRIVER. Click on Browse my computer for driver software.

7 : Now navigate to download folder and select Win7 folder. That is all. You can now go ahead with the steps for the rooting of L3.

ROOTING OF L3
Download the Files to be used for Rooting here
a.   http://www1.datafilehost.com/d/6d74e15a
b.   http://www1.datafilehost.com/d/5de778b0

I advise you to open a new folder and put these two files you are about to download because when you unzip them, they will be plenty and you will take a long time searching for them.

Please install ROOT CHECKER from googleplay store so that at a point in the process, I will tell you to check whether you have root access.

Installation of Files 
*Click on the extracted folder labelled SP_Flash_Tool_v3.1224.01  you will see the SPFlashtool with this icon below, click on it.
*When the box opens, click on SCATTER-LOADING. It is at the far right hand side of the box. See pic below
* A box will pop up. Check the files you extracted and click on MT6575_Android_scatter_emmc.txt        when you do it you will see the pic below


*Scroll down the list of items you see there and tick the small box in front of BOOTIMG.

*Click on the name BOOTIMG, a box will come up. Go to your extracted files and click on L3_130613__boot_patched_130804-160810.img       click on Open.

*Scroll down the list again and click RECOVERY (it is directly below BOOTIMG)  Go to your extracted files and click on  L3_130613__recovery_130804-160810.img     click on Open

*After you have loaded both files, you should have something like this below
* Click on DOWNLOAD. If you check the top right corner, you will see 2 types of  DOWNLOAD. Click the second one NOT the first one. See pic below

 *Now connect your Tecno L3 via USB with the battery inserted in the phone BUT SWITCHED OFF. I mean the phone should be switched OFF and connected to the computer.

*A red process bar will come up, just allow the process to continue, when the process is complete you will see a green circle pop up. See pic below
 *You can now unplug your phone from the Computer and SWITCH IT ON. I mean put your phone ON.

* When you switch ON the phone, YOU have to enable USB DEBUGGING.
==>Go to SETTINGS, Scroll down to DEVELOPER OPTIONS and click on it.
==>at the top you will see ON/OFF , slide the bar to ON
==>Scroll down and tick the USB DEBUGGING box, it will ask you CANCEL/OK, choose OK.

* Connect the phone to the computer via USB.

* One of the files you downloaded and extracted is MtkDroidTools_v248. Click on it,  then click on MtkDroidTools.
There is a green coloured app called MTKdroidTools, click on it. It will bring up a box where you will see two headings, click on ROOT, BACK UP, RECOVERY. See Pic below
The application will now detect your phone information (Remember your phone is ON now)

*Click on SUPER USER, it will bring up two files. Click on the Second one which is "SuperSU" and it will install. You will see complete in the box by your right hand side.

*Click on ROOT CHECKER app in your phone, then click on Verify root access. HURRAYYYYYYYYYY !!! You are now ROOTED !!!

OFF, remove your battery and put it back, then ON the phone, you will see Super User, Root Explorer in your phone Menu.

    1. Rooting enables you to remove restrictions put in Android phones that prevent them from installing some applications. Applications that seek to access or change the internal structure of Android operating system will be rejected by Android phones except you remove (rooting) the restriction. Rooting can void your phone's warranty. If you buy a phone from a network provider (e.g Mtn) and you are given warranty, any form of rooting will void that warranty.
      Although, rooting can be reversed, it is not always advisable to do so. Some applications that need root access on phones are: droidvpn, screen recorders, avast anti theft etc. You may check how to track your stolen phone with avast anti theft. - See more at: http://www.baba2023.com/2013/05/root-your-tecno-p3.html#sthash.jKj0yzyX.dpuf

  3. Please HELP!!! I followed your instruction till i got to : Click on the name BOOTIMG, a box will come up. Go to your extracted files and click on L3_130613__boot_patched_130804-160810.img click on Open. - See more at: http://www.baba2023.com/2013/08/root-tecno-l3.html#sthash.kj7JW0ql.dpuf.
    Now the issue is that my system sees it as an image file and each time i click on the file to open, it opens with a photo viewer or nero burner this as such doesn't make the BOOTIMG load as shown in your image. Please HELP Sir I'm in dire need of rooting my phone. I jumped with excitement when I saw this post but not being able to exceed this stage has really weighed me down. So what should I do to prevent or stop this? I anxiously await your reply

    1. I think why it is doing that is that you have set the default software for openinig picture images to that photo viewer.
      1. Right click on the L3_130613__boot_patched_130804-160810.img

      2. Click on OPEN WITH, then click on CHOOSE DEFAULT PROGRAM

      3. Click on the zip software you used to unzip the files

      4. You will see a small box with ALWAYS USE THE SELECTED PROGRAM TO OPEN THIS KIND OF FILE, make sure that the box is ticked, then click OK.

      You will not encounter the problem again.
      If you have any problem call 08060217623
