Flare S Play Root
 
Warning! Rooting can void your warranty!. DO it at Your own risk!
 
FIRST METHOD

(LOW RISK)

Rooting via Recovery Mode only
Pros: No need PC. Can root via  your mobile phone only!
Cons: Success for rooting only 50% chances
Requirements:

Procedure:
1. Download  Androidcribs root app.
2. Then On your internet or data.
3. Click Root then wait.
4. If success download rootchecker in playstore
5. If not please proceed to 2nd and 3rd method…
SECOND METHOD

(MED RISK)

Rooting via Fastboot

Pros: Medium Risk only.
Cons: Wrong command can’t work unlocking.
Can delete all your files. you need to back up first.


Download all:

(run exe file to load needed drivers)
2. Vcom drivers: .. (install sa pc)
(extract the file then copy to desktop)4.TWRP

 

(copy this to your root directory of sdcard(sa labas lang ng sdcard wag sa mga folder ok)
PROCEDURE:
1) Unlock bootloader:
1.1) Boot for first time your device. I recommend to NOT register/login/add Wifi/add accounts/etc., because the unlock process DELETES all your data in the device. So to go more fast, skip all, and go directly to SETTINGS. In section ABOUT DEVICE, enable the developer options with eight time picks over “Build number”. Then in SETTINGS/DEVELOPER OPTIONS, enable the option “OEM unlocking”. Then power off.
OEM UNLOCKING
1.2) Boot your device to Fastboot mode (hold power button and vol up) choose fastboot mode or boot into bootloader), then connect your phone to PC via USB cable. Open folder fastboot from minimal adb fastboot tool(run as administrator)
Click Run me.bat
fastboot click run me.bat
Execute in your computer the command “fastboot oem unlock”, say YES with “vol+” and “power” buttons. Then select reboot. This ERASES completely your device (factory restore), but the bootloader will be UNLOCKED! Two reboots needed.
fastboot oem unlock
2) Install custom Recovery:
2.1) DownloadTWRP recovery and rename into recovery.img
 copy this recovery.img inside (minimal adb fastboot tool folder)
recovery copy
2.2) Boot in the BOOTLOADER mode. Then execute command “fastboot flash recovery recovery.img”;
fastboot flash recovery
and then “fastboot reboot”.

fasboot reboot

 

3) Rooting:
3.1) Copy last beta of SuperSU v2.52 to your SD Card (file BETA-SuperSU-v2.52.zip).
Click Here
3.2) Boot in the TWRP with “Vol+” and “Power” buttons.
3.3) Install ZIP from external-sd card.
3.4) Reboot .
3.5) After boot, start SuperSU and configure it. Root done!

  1. Thank you very much for this tutorial. First method failed, second method went into error (during flashing the recovery image file). I knew the third method will work but I still tried the other 2 methods, and I am right! Third method worked right away (using windows 10 os), very smooth as I have experience using SPFT. I can now play with my phone and fix some issues (cast screen not working, OTG feature, and audio enhancer).Thank you author! ^_^
