    • This is really work, tested by my friend.
      Just Install and open kingroot(need net)
      automatic rotating wait until say check then tap ok.wait to finish..
      Later I will update and post some screenshots.

  1. Sir Papajack, one question lang po. Have you tried it yourself? I have a problem with instruction #9 "Turn off your phone, connect your phone to the PC and wait for the flashing to commence." After turning off my device and connecting it to PC, how will I know if the process of flashing had started? The green download button turns gray and the gray stop button turns green. Other than that I don't see any sign of activities or anything. Please help.

  2. I finally resolved my issues. I did not successfully installed all the necessary drivers for everything to work. Thanks for this great tutorial Sir Papajack. One thing I want to add, your step # 2 instructions seems vague especially to newbies, please give instructions on how to manually install unsigned drivers or give them links to some instructions on youtube about this matter. After weeks of frustration and sleep deprivation, I had finally come to the ultimate solution to this problem. I will tell my friends about your blog and share it with them. Once again thank you. 🙂

    • This beta version has same function and stable version too. You don't need other version otherwise pay for developer of chainfire which superSU Pro version available in the market.

  3. Hi Sir, I already rooted my af2. Can you also please make a backup of our stock rom flashable via twrp/spft? This will help us in fixing bootloop. 🙂 thanks sir.

    • @kim Just try to connect your phone via usb cable without the battery and win 10 automatically install driver just make sure on your internet connection in your desktop or PC…

      6. Your Computer will reboot.

    • Lol, it's too extreme.
      You don't really have to refresh your PC to install unsigned driver. Just go to advanced startup, and choose disable driver signature enforcement. If your driver still can't be installed in disabled state, try plug to another usb port.

  4. My tanong po ako.. Sir PapaJack. san po ako makaka kuha ng firmware nito? my na tweak ako sa system file niya tapos. kahit anong hard reset ko.. andun parin ung changes.. nag unresponding ung apps… T_T

    • Thanks pala sa stock firmware po… na install ko na po Kernel version 3.10.65 modded version po ba ito??? How about kung mag a.update ako sa Marshmallow.. sa pagka intindi ko, once na divirginized na ung phone, nawawala na ung warranty as well as the ability to update it via "About Phone > Wireless update".. meron nabang Marshmallow Firmware na compatible sa AF2? or any method to update android version from 5.1 to 6.0??

  5. Excellent, success with method 2 but Vista must download VCOM USB driver MT6589 in the link guiding Flashtool. Btw, how did you have Twrp file? As i know all tools to build custom recovery haven't supported Lollipop yet.

    • You can revive even on custom recovery just backup your device using custom recovery (twrp). If incase wiped? Just flash custom recovery via spft and restore your backup in TWRP.

  6. ano po ba dapat n mangyari pagkatapos nung andriod na nakahiga na may exclamation point? kasi sakin nag boot lng xa ng normal tapos ginawa ko ni reboot q xa ulit and ginawa q ung power+volume up wala ung twrp recovery..tnx!!

  7. Yes! method doesnt work with v3.6 firmware. I tried the method above and it brick my phone. Lucky, there is a back up firmware.

    Please update the root tutorial to reflect the v3.6 firmware.
