[ROOT][GUIDE] Root your LAVA IRIS 501 Jellybean 4.1.1

39 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

By this time you may have been updated your LAVA Iris 501 to Jelly Bean 4.1.1

Now it is time to Root your mobile.

Earlier with ICS; Rooting was done with "Root with Restore by Bin4ry v15" but now with Jellybean, this process will not work.

Steps for Rooting:

  • Download and install MediaTek Driver
  • Download CWM Recovery from link given in my post
  • I am also giving link for Scatter File in-case you do not have Scatter File
  • Flash your phone with this CWM Recovery using SP Flash Tool (Process given below)


    Process for Flashing CWM:
    01. Make sure that mobile is Switch Off and not connected with PC
    02. Create a separate folder in PC; for example "Recovery"
    03. Copy Scatter File and CWM Recovery in this folder
    04. Rename recovery_cwm_6.0.1.5_iris.img file to recovery.img
    05. Start SP Flash Tools
    06. Click on Scatter Loading button>Browse to "Recovery" Folder and select Scatter File
    07. Now you will find that only Recovery file is checked in SP Tools
    08. Click Download button
    09. It will give you warning, "Not ALL images are correctly loaded, which may cause boot up issue! Do you still want to go on downloading anyway?"
    10. Click on "Yes"
    11. Remove mobile battery and re-insert after 3-4 seconds (Do-not Switch ON Mob)
    12. Connect mobile to PC with USB Cable
    13. Flashing will start and it will be done in few seconds
    14. Disconnect USB cable and Power On Mobile.

    • Download Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed.zip and su-bin-3.1.1-arm-signed.zip from links given in my post
    • Copy both files to SD Card
    • Boot in to Recovery
    • Select Install zip from sdcard and install Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed.zip
    • Donot reboot your phone now and install su-bin-3.1.1-arm-signed.zip
    • Now reboot your phone
    • After reboot, phone will take approx. 4 to 5 minute for first boot

    Downloads: Links Updated

    Media Tek Driver

    CWM Recovery

    Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed

    su-bin-3.1.1-arm-signed

    Scatter File

I think you are trying to install "Super User" with stock recovery hence it is giving error.

Read my post carefully and flash your phone with "CWM Recovery", link for CWM Recovery is given in my post.

This CWM works for Prestigio 5000 also because both phones are same.

May be you are missing something.

I will suggest to again download CWM file from the link which is given in my post and try again.

May be this CWM is not compatible with your phone. Try to Flash TWRP recovery with SP Flash Tools, link is given here:
