    EZ root update ZIP for s802 (all) "Stock ROM" ROMs

    Here is a simple way to root your S89 with stock ROM since that's all we have right now!

    This is a flashable ZIP package. You do not need a program or a flash tool!

    Instructions:

    1) Download this zip file and put it on a SDcard. DO NOT unzip it!
    Note: It may work on the internal SDcard but I did not test it as you cant write to it from the PC as this ROM does not support Mass Storage.
    2) Put the SDcard into the S89 SD slot.
    3) Go into your APPs and run the update tool.
    NOTE: DO NOT have the OTG USB cable plugged into the S89! If you do it will boot into FLASH mode and not recovery!
    4) In the update tool click the "select" button. It should list the file s89_root_update.zip. Click it.
    5) Now press the update button.
    6) The system should reboot into recovery and automatically install the zip.
    However sometimes it reboots to the recovery menu! Not sure why.
    If it does, then using the mouse, select "Apply updated from EXT"
    Now select SDcard. You should see the s89_root_update.zip file. Select it.
    Recovery will then install the update. When done select reboot system from the menu.

    That's it! You are no PROPERLY reooted!

    Here is the download link.

    Enjoy,

    I can confirm that I am unable to flash the zip from internal storage. I'll have a MicroSD card in a few hours to test this.

      Yep and also you will need one for my ROM I am releasing probably tomorrow.

      At this time no one knows how to make the flashable .img ROMs to use with the flash tool! So for now all ROMs will be zip updates like all other AML devices today.

          If a unit has been rooted using this method, would it be possible to install the Finless ROM update overtop of it?

            No, please re-install the stock ROM as my instructions said.
            The easy root uses a different method to root. It uses install-recovery script which is not permanent and you can loose root if other things decide to modify that script. My ROM uses an edit to init.rc which cannot be changed by an APP. This is the correct way to root a device.

                      Do not extract the zip. Put the zip as is on SD card use updater to get you to recovery mode (or it will just apply update and reboot automatically).
