Guest Frankish Posted August 5, 2015 Report Share Posted August 5, 2015 (edited) So i figured we have had enough questions asked and answers to stick them all in one place to help any newcomers.Feel free to ask anything in this thread and we will try and answer. Also feel free to suggest anything you feel should be included or elaborated on. I plug my phone in but can't access my files?For some strange reason this phone shipped without MTP enabled so simply go into phone settings, storage, tap the 3 dot menu top right, then select USB Computer Connection.From here just enable MTP. No special drivers needed. How can i use ADB i need Windows drivers!The standard Google Nexus drivers work just fine for this phone any should be fine except for the Galaxy Nexus drivers. They can be found over here Download, you may need to manually install these through Device Manager. How can i root my SU6?There is now a One-click root available as posted by forum member "macbreakweeklyfan" which installs SuperSu and its binaries. It's a Windows tool that also includes a lot of device management options.Find the topic here get me rooted! I won't post a guide as it seems VERY straight forward to use. If you need to root without a pc or just directly on the device then there is a tool available called Kingroot it's an .apk you run on your device. However be warned there seems to be a random error where Chrome no longer works, not always but out of my test of 5 roots i had one incident of this.Download Kingroot from here directly to your SU6. Install the app after it is finished downloading and start it up. Now just follow the on screen instructions and you will be rooted in no time. OK i rooted with Kingroot but how can i swap to SuperSu?Some people would rather use a root app and binary that they know and trust. As soon as i was rooted i switched over to SuperSU.There is a market app called SuperSume by gatesjunior. Before downloading make sure you are already rooted using Kingroot and relaunch Kingroot to confirm root status. Now reboot your device.Now you can download and install SuperSume here.Run SuperSume app and follow the instructions on screen, when SuperSU shows up make sure you update binary. The SuperSume app will have installed SuperSU and removed all Kingroot related apps and binaries. How can i unroot?Kingroot and SuperSU both have options built in to remove root. SuperSU's option is in settings and all the way down towards the bottom of the page. Network Unlocking my Smart Ultra 6Network unlocks for the SU6 can be had at time of posting for £3.25 here. I have had 3 unlocked by this guy so far and had no problems. One unlock did take the full 12 hours to come through though. You do not ever need a Vodafone sim to unlock the device.To get your unlock you need to let the guy know via message a few details. Here is what i sent him,Phone: Vodafone Smart Ultra 6Network lock: Vodafone UKIMEI: YOUR IMEI NUMBERYour IMEI number is on the box your SU6 came in. Alternatively you can turn the phone on with no sim and type *#06# into the dialler and it will show your IMEI number.As soon as you have your code all you need to do is put in any non Vodafone sim (I'm on Three UK) and when the phone starts up it will prompt you to enter a network unlock code. Once you enter your code the phone will be at your homescreen and you should see signal for your chosen network. So far it seems it has most UK APN's set up so data works straight away.Once unlocked it is PERMANENT. You can wipe, root, install stock again and it will remain unlocked. My Notification LED is not working? What's the deal?Turns out this is an Android bug that manifests itself in the restore process when setting up the phone. If you restore from a Google backup there is a chance it can disable the notification LED. It will still come on when charging just not for incoming notifications. The long way to fix this? Set the phone up from a full wipe and do NOT restore from a backup.Shorter fix? Download and install the Widget Motorola released to fix the exact same problem they had on the Moto G this allows you to enable the notification LED with a single tap on the widget. You can download the Widget here. - Thanks to @NegativeOne for hunting this apk down and testing it. Is there a custom recovery available?YES! KonstaT has built TWRP for our device and shared it in this thread over here. Are there any custom ROM's available yet?Not just yet but we have root, custom recovery and kernel source... Just be patient they will start to appear. More to come plus better formatting organisation as i add stuff... It's late i need sleep now :) Edited August 15, 2015 by Frankish Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
