How To Root MyPhone A919i Duo?
Before you proceed, let me just remind you that rooting your MyPhone A919i Duo is potentially dangerous and could permanently brick (damaged) your phone. Specially if you don’t know what you are doing. I won’t be responsible for any damages that will happen to your phone, and it is purely up to you if you want to try this or not.
I haven’t tried this since I do not have an A919i Duo, but according to Symbianize forum member, C0re, its working for him. You will need to download additional files and drivers. He said you might be needing Micromax A116 drivers, for phones that are using the same MTK6589 chipset. Below are the instructions on how to root your MyPhone A919i Duo:
1. Enable USB Debugging on the phone.
2. Download and unrar the file. Extract anywhere. Refer to the original thread here.
You might want to uninstall any currently installed A919i and ADB drivers before installing PDAnet, but this is optional only.
3. Install PDAnet, connecting the phone when prompted. (this is to install necessary drivers)
4. In the “motochopper” folder, execute “run.bat” (run as admin if needed).
5. The phone will automatically reboot. Done.
*You can uninstall PDAnet if you don’t need it.
*This will uninstall a very outdated version of SuperSU. Update SuperSU thru Play Store.
There you go, hope this would work on your MyPhone A919i Duo as well.
