[FAQ] Rooting for beginners. [UPDATED 24-02-13]

This may be just me but I cannot see the FAQ, when I click on it I just get a post saying nice work as the first post. I am desperately in need of it as I have loaded the TIlal's CM10 ROM but flashing GAPPS does not work. I am sure it is a "schoolboy error" on my part but I need the FAQ to see what I have done wrong. I have flashed several ROMS and GAPPS in the past and never had a problem so seems strange.

Anyway any help that can be offered would be greatly appreciated.

I would guess your system partition is to small. You need another tpt with 230MB system which can be done by tpt helper. Just look through the rom's thread it is described there somewhere.

Hello there,

I am having some issues while rooting my Medion life P4310. I am using this package "TWM_Fantastic_T3_Root_Packge.rar" to root my device.

I've connected my phone to my laptop (windows) in debugging mode and my phone is displayed in the "mycomputer>right click>manage>device manager"

In the next step im executing the "0_Install_CWM_recovery.bat" - a command promt is displayed with following commands-

C:\TWM_Fantastic_T3_Root_Package>adb.exe reboot bootloader

C:\TWM_Fantastic_T3_Root_Package>fastboot.exe flash recovery recovery.img

< waiting for device>

at this instance the phone is rebooted/hangs and "Medion" logo is displayed the whole time. There is also a popup displayed "found new Hardware Wizard"

I've tried all possible options to show where the drivers are located but of no use :(

I am not able get pass thru this step, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and regards.
