  • [Tutorial] Easy root method for Lollipop RK3368 Players (no iRoot)

    I don't trust iRoot, which installs a bunch of junk on my device.
    I checked a safer method.

    Step by step:
    1. Flash with Android Tool Release v2.35 - Abdul's TWRP for RK3368 (http://www.solidfiles.com/d/6b57d23c94/ click "Direct download link") on recovery partition (as recovery.img)
    2. Boot player into TWRP recovery mode.
    3. Do it update from SD card or USB Pendrive - UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip https://download.chainfire.eu/696/supersu/
    4. Reboot - player should be rooted.

    Regards

    Hi!
    thank you for this. Which models has this been tried on successfully? I have ENY EKB368 and HPH V8 and I'd like to know that it won't brick them before I try..

    Thanks

      No You can't brick. This method flash only recovery partition.
      If you have the original firmware, you can always return to stock.

        Cannot find "Android Tool Release v2.35" - I usually use RK batch tool to update the firmware. Can you give a link to the Android Tool you mention?

                    Thanks for the info, but on Nagrace HPH NT-V8 new rk3368 box I could not flash the recovery. I boot into recovery (blank screen) using the pin hole and power button, and the android tool recognize the device when I do that. but.. when I try to flash it just reboots the box.

                    Any advice would be appreciated since I need proper root to run benchmarks and collect data for my review.

                    Thanks!
