How To Root Tecno Phantom A (Tecno F7)

There are no limit to the possibilities one can achieve on a rooted Android device compared to one that isn't rooted. As you know, Rooting is to Androin as Jailbreak is to iOS.

For those that don't know what rooting means, a little definition will suffice. Rooting basically means that you install a set of programs on your phone that gives you total control over your device. Total control means that you have the right to install any applications or even delete core applications that you don't want.

 Simply put, you have administrative rights over your device, giving  you super user access, and of course, you can use DroidVPN to have free unlimited internet.

The guide below shows how you can root Tecno Phantom A also known as Tecno F7 and its super easy to achieve. Don't forget to like us on Facebook.

Requirements
1. Computer with internet connection
2. PdaNet+ V4.12 zipped file
3. eroot_v1.3.3 zipped file
4. USB to connect your device to the computer
5. Backup your phone data just in case. 
6. For some that couldn't get drivers for their Tecno F7, you can install Mobilego

Notes
1. Rooting your phone voids your warranty
2. Anything that happens while rooting your device is on you. You are doing it at your own risk
3. There are softwares to unroot your phone if you don't want the rooting option again.


Procedures 
1. Connect your Tecno F7 to the computer

2. Download PdaNet+ V4.12 and eroot_v1.3.3 to your desktop and unpack in a folder called Rooting.

3. Install the PdaNet+ V4.12 as shown in the image below.
 
4. If you have already installed the driver of your F7 in the computer before at one time, you can choose No in the dialogue box shown to you otherwise, select Yes

A box would show up asking you to either Skip or Cancel Installation. Leave it and move to the next step

5. Next you need to enable debugging mode on your phone. To do this, go to Settings, scroll to Developer Option, tap on it and then select USB debugging, click OK at the prompt and then exit.

6.  Once your device is detected by the computer and its in USB debug mode, a pop-up would show up to install a software from June Fabrics Technology. Click Install and let it finish its installation which would take place on your device too.
 

7. Run the eroot you downloaded earlier, it would display in Chinese, don't worry.

8. It would detect your device and then you will see the big bold Root menu. Click on Root and you would be rooted in no time.


9. Disconnect the USB connection,now locate you Phone menu, You will be able to Find a New Application Installed on your Phone with name ‘Superuser'.

10. Reboot your Tecno F7 and you will be good to go with a rooted Tecno Phantom A smartphone.

Guys, I hope you find this information useful. I have tried it and my Tecno F7 is rooted. Give it a try and enjoy the limitless possibilities of rooting. 

Don't forget to share your success stories for others to read and learn from your mistakes if you had one.

Also, give full info if its not working for you. Don't just say "its not working". Give details.

  2. Hello, after following the steps, the big bold Root menu would not come up.

    1. If you had the driver for your Tecno F7 installed on your computer and USB debugging is enabled, eroot should detect your phone and -root should show up.

      However, you can download mobilego for your PC, install and connect your phone to it. This will help properly install needed drivers. Remember, you need internet connection to install these drivers.

      For further help info, give more details.

    1. Your phone isn't meant to reboot for any reason. You should try rooting again.

      Also, you don't have some theme and fon changing apps on your phone. Its being reported that some of these apps could mess up your device. Only got for theme apps that are widely known and stable like Go widgets.

    2. Hello Akin. You're a great guy. Thanks for all the info you pass on via your blog and your Youtube page. More power to your elbow. Please I'd like to ask if Infinix phones can be rooted too? Infinix Max Q and RaceJet to be precise.

  10. Akin,may The Lord bless you. I did it without much stress. I bought the phone today and can't just start using it without rooting it based on the experience I had in my earlier n7. I appreciate you much. Thanks for sharing this

  11. Sir, I just bought tecno f7 and I noticed that the two sim can't receive or make calls if data connection was assign to a sim.I need to switch off my data before the two sim can call and receive,its only the sim with data that can make and receive calls.also how do I do screenshot or the app , Is rooting really necessary. Thanks sir

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hello,
    Rooting is not that necessary. To do a screenshot, press and hold both volume down and power button together.

    Regarding call stuff, go to sim management under settings and make sure both sim are on.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thanks sir,I got the screenshot. The two line is active and both ON. Call is coming in to both line cus have switch off my data but if I should switch my data on with one of the sim,the sim with the data will be the one that will be active.
    Default sim
    Voice call. Airtel
    Video call...mtn
    Messaging..mtn
    That is my setting
    Thanks sir

  14. I should say am impressed... Had no idea the F7 phone had native screen capture capabilities. But what I would really like to lay my hands, on is a custom ROM.
    Preferably the 4.3.0 or worst case 4.2.1. (TECNO Phanthom A1 Plus is running on 4.2.0)
    I would like to get a copy of the 4.3 or the 4.2 so I can manually upgrade mine.
    In that regard, how can you make that happen? Is it out there yet? I know the 4.3 version is being rolled out for other devices but no one seems to be talking of China phones(TECNO)... I believe there is this great misconception about China phones that TECNO is trying very hard (and succeeding @ it if I may add) to correct.
    Wouldn't you agree?
    Nontheless, I would appreciate it if you let me know where I can lay my hands on the Upgrade OS 4.3 or @ least the 4.2 files. Thanks a Quadrillion!!!

  15. Just did it on my Tecno N9 pad and it worked...... I'm now rooted

  16. Thanks bro. got it! but please what custom rom can i install on it foe jelly bean 4.2

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks bro for this.

    Something to note: "Developer Settings" options is hidden by default in Android JellyBean 4.2. To enable it in the Settings section, select the "About Phone (or Tablet)" option in Settings, and then tap seven (7) times on the "Build Number" item. By the time you are at the 4th tap, a notification toast will inform you that you have to tap a few times more. Then you'll see the "Developer Options" entry show up in the Settings.

    Folks at Google have quite a sense of humour, won't you agree :-)

    ReplyDelete
  18. @UGO, you are very correct.
    Google have started secretly updating all Jelly Bean phones. You will notice some changes in your notification after updating an app. You will also notice that new security manager options shows up.

    Its almost as if features found in 4.3 are being ported to other jelly bean devices partially.

  19. Fellas please help me down here,
    My TECNO F7 cannot access the "play store"

    I really need help i have done all my knowledge in Android.

    1. Gapps refer to Google Apps and u can fix it by going to Settings > Apps > Google Play. Click on Google Play Store, Force stop and clear data. That should fix it. If all fails, reset ur phone but backup b4 u do.
      You can back up using titanium backup

      Delete
  20. Thanks@ Akin Akinsanya, but all fails. what i believe is, i have deleted a necessary file which i cant remember,Now my phone cannot boot to recovery to "resset it"
    I guess if i can get the system gapps file for android 4.1.1 then i would have installed it directly as system file using root explorer.
    pls can you get this for me.
    thanks for your reply

  21. You can also try going to Apps under settings and then tap the left soft touch menu key and click on "Reset app preferences"

    1. It seems that you are having either driver issues or you don't have developer options selected. If its driver problem, check to be sure the driver for your phone is installed. You can check from device manager. If you are not sure, look for a post I wrote on unbricking tecno f7, all the drivers are there for download. Reboot the phone and make sure developer option is enabled after all drivers must have been installed then try it again bro. God punish devil. It must root

      Delete
    2. If after doing this it still fails I will look for alternative one click root options for you. Kingo root is one alternative though

It still amazes me how you do what you do, reply to people's post swiftly and positively. You are really amazing sir. Being part of this blog is one decision I will never regret. By the way sir, i have got some questions, please, can I use the Eroot app and PdaNet to root models like: Phantom N9, N7, Q1? And if you don't mind, I would love a list of some cool apps to download. Thank you very much once again. God be with you.

    1. Its due to the data/data file for the apps in question. You need to be rooted to be able to see the data/data file which you can now delete the files and then re-install the affected apps.

      Alternatively, a factory reset will fix it. Make sure you back up all your stuffs though before you wipe

    1. To delete contact in phone book, go to contacts, press the left soft button, select delete contact and then you can start marking the ones you want to delete. When through with the marking, click OK at the top right corner and then delete. Do the same for call logs.

      If your phone sleeps, go to Settings/Display switch off Daydream and change Sleep time to 5minutes if you want.

      Regarding rooting, its not all necessary to root. When you root it, you have to be super sure of what you install on your phone. I suggest that you don't root your phone. Also, it voids your warranty.

  84. hello Akin, my phantom A+ keeps re-booting on its own. Secondly, the battery drains faster than expected. Please what can i do to avert this.

    1. do a quick backup of your phone. Perhaps an app is constantly draining the battery or the battery is getting weak. One way to find out is to try see any app you installed recently that made you start noticing this issues. If you can't find anything or app responsible, then i suggest you reset your android phone to avoid further damage to the scripts in the phone. To reset, go to Settings/ Backup & reset and follow the instructions to reset.

  85. Sorry guys, what is the advantages of rooting an Android phone? My tecno f7 is yet to be rooted. Thank u.

  86. Rooting only allows u to have full power over your fone. Pls check the comments above for better understanding. However, its not really important to root your phone except you have good knowledge of the consequences are. You also lose your warranty. Although rooting can be undone.

  90. Pls my techno f7 is showing ' storage space running out" and I have deleted almost all my app but its still showing the same thing .... Pls help

    1. The problem is the internal memory space. Both apps on internal and external memory can affect it.

      Go to Settings/Apps look for Facebook, click on it and then clear data, do the same for Chrome (you would lose all your saved pages and you would need to enter password again). delete some apps that are stored on SD card that you hardly use. U can always download them again later. Most of the apps eating the space can be seen using an app called 1 Tap Cleaner. Download for free and clean the phone. Check my tutorial on solving memory space on the blog

  91. Hello Akin,pls what can cause battery to drain quickly. And what can I do to resolve this. During usage on internet,between 30 min it drains from 100 to 89 % or thereabouts. Do u think live wallpaper and internet surfing can cause this. Thanks. My warmest regard. My phone is f7 phantom

    1. Live Wallpaper, browsing the Internet and Backlight of the screen are very strong suspects. Battery drain faster when browsing the Internet with data than with WiFi.
      Also, the battery life will get weaker over time. Furthermore, some apps can drain battery too.

      What you can do is reduce Backlight to lowest when browsing.
      If this started happening recently, you should change the live wallpaper, it can drain battery or check a newly installed app that have affinity for battery consumption

    1. That's abnormal and you are supposed to see the SuperUser icon. What you can do is unroot the phone using VROOT and then root with Kingoapp. You will find info on how to do this on my blog.

Now my question is "How does this help me with my memory issue?" cos the main reason I tried rooting was cos my phone kept showing me storage full even when I had less than no app installed. Appreciate your immediate response. Thanks
