Root QMobile Noir A2 and Install CWM Recovery 6.0.2.7 version

Posted on Updated on

QMobile Noir A2 was first rooted by an XDA forum member named as “Nagdrx”, although he is so humble about this procedure that he is not the creator of this method and just connected some pieces to get a working method. This statement gave a room to some cheaters to claim the ownership of this method. But the fact is fact. He is still the first person who practically rooted QMobile Noir A2 (MT 6575 version 2 ). I personally very thankful to “Nagdrx” for his post. You can read his great post from this page.

Anyway, I followed his procedure and made this simplest tutorial for beginners who can’t understand it without screenshots. First of all, download this compressed file to your PC. Uncompress above rar file to desktop like this:

a2root1e

You will see “Noir A2 ROOT” folder having these contents:

1. SP_Flash_Tool (Folder)
2. CWM-Recovery-6.0.2.7.img (file)
3. MT6573_Android_scatter.txt (file)
4. SuperSU-v1.65.zip (file)

Copy compressed file “SuperSU-v1.65.zip” to SD Card of your mobile. Now install USB driver from this rar file before proceeding to the next step. It is assumed that USB debugging mode is enabled on your mobile. You can get it by going to Menu > Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging (check: ON). Select Allow USB debugging : OK.

Disconnect your mobile from PC and follow these steps:
a2root2e

Open folder “SP_Flash_Tool” :

a2root3e

Execute “Flash_Tool.exe” file to see screen below :

a2root4e

Click on “Scatter-loading” radio button and select “MT6573_Android_scatter.txt” file :

a2root5e

Click “OK” to ignore this message :

a2root6e

This will load the scatter file. Now click on “Recovery” option to open “CWM-Recovery-6.0.2.7.img” file :

a2root7e

You can see complete file path of Recovery image file when you open it :

a2root8e

Switch off your QMobile Noir A2 mobile and remove battery for few seconds. Then again put battery into mobile but keep it in switch-off state. Click to “Download” radio button which will start the 14 seconds count down :

a2root9e

Immediately connect your mobile to PC via USB cable to start the download process :

a2root10e

After the completion of download, you will see “Rom Download Result” dialog message followed by green circle dialog screen like below :

a2root11e

a2root12e

Now CWM Recovery has been installed. Close the “SP_Flash_Tool” software. Automatically you will see “Found New Hardware Wizard” dialog screens. Just click “Next” button and follow the steps :

a2root13e

a2root14e

a2root15e

a2root16e

a2root17e

a2root18e

a2root19e

Now disconnect your mobile from PC. Press “Power” button, Volume UP and Volume Down keys simultaneously for 3 seconds till you see two options:

Recovery Mode: Volume Up
Factory Mode: Volume Down

Just press “Volume Up” side key to boot into Recovery Mode. You will see this screen:

A181013-000742e

Select “install zip from sdcard” by pressing “Power” button :

A181013-001322e

Select “choose zip from sdcard” by pressing “Power” button :

A181013-001418e

A181013-005120e

Select “SuperSU-v1.65.zip” file and press “Power” button :

A181013-005238e

This will install SuperSU application into your mobile :

A181013-005336e

Now you have “Rooted QMobile Noir A2” with CWM Recovery installed. Select “reboot system now” to go into system mode. Below are the screenshots after the root process:

A181013-010054e

A181013-160817e

A181013-160921e

WARNING: After this root process, you must make backup of currently installed ROM before uninstalling any application. So that you can easily go back to its original state. You can do it (under CWM recovery) by going to backup and restore > backup.

All the screenshots of system and recovery modes are taken by using my newly developed software “AndScreen v 1.1.0”, developed in Visual Basic 6 language. I will upload this new 1.1.0 version  on 21st October, 2013. Below is the screenshot of this upcoming version 1.1.0:

Solution: Android SDK must be installed on your PC  in order to use “AndScreen” software because “AndScreen” will use above three missing files which are a part of Android SDK package. Read this tutorial for the easy installation of Android SDK package alongwith USB drivers.

Then Relocate the default folder “Platform-tools” by Manual or Automatic process. Then “Save” this location and restart “AndScreen” software. You will never see above error messages again.

Error # 2: “File Not Found: fb0.raw. Process Stopped !!”

Solution: Disconnect your mobile from PC and reconnect again. Also restart “AndScreen” software. Make sure that your can see your android phone information in the black horizontal screen like this:
