Hi there,
I'm french (excuse me, my english is sometime bad) and recent owner of the S2 pro.

I'm looking for a tutorial to root the phone.

I found that page
https://www.getdroidtips.com/root-twrp-umidigi-s2-s2-pro/
<<< EDIT 2017-01-23 :  I don't recommend to use this procedure, it's not safe at all. >>>
But I'm not sure that it's so safe as described. I mean it doesn't seem very accurately appropriate to the S2 pro ...
And it would be a pity to brick it after 1 day in my pocket
The TWRP team has apparently not released a specific version of TWRP so is it very safe to flash the phone with this howto ?

Has anyone tried to root the S2 Pro and succeded in it ?
What do you think about this howto ?

If someone knows about that,
Thanks for your answer

Bonne journée à tous,

Rooting devices is illegal and is voiding warranty.

Hey, am i violating the law by rooting my device? if so, the law of where? is FBI gonna fly over and arrest me?

Be careful when you use words like this, since you do not speak on behalf of my country.

Secondly, voiding my warranty is my issue, thank you for your reminder, I am sure 95% of the root users are well aware of that.

But do not take away our rights to root.

so s2 can be rooted and s2pro cannot be rooted
and we are all stuck with this well built amazing umiOS?
u gotta be kidding me.

its always good to try to make something, but dont use us as a beta tester

in fact if i knew you must stick with UmiOS, i definitely would not have bought this phone.

I really cannot recall since when an Android phone will ever claim that they can never be rooted?

Guys,
From now on please write also in English. If you want use only your language please go to re ...

I don't see the "product" "umidig S2 Pro only english"

Seriously we just want to share some solution about this phone which is not finished... You're telling it's forbidden because it's not in the right section.
We're not telling about how bad is this phone or something else, juste sharing some solution.

If somebody need a translation, https://translate.google.fr/?sl=fr&tl=mk

Come on, it's a cheap phone with a cheap OS, don't be a dictator/moderator !

Ten topics of how the umi OS is bad, everyday the same topic and you're asking us to not speaking in french. Ask to Umidigi to work on a better OS that's all we want, after that we don't ask anything else.
Imagine if you buy something and it's not working like is planned ? Juste imagine.... and the company, maybe they're doing something, but nobody knows. So let us talk about some solution, giving some advice between us and just be cool !

PS: if you delete this post, you're a real dictator and it's not good for umidigi community....

Probably some misunderstanding. UMI OS based phones cannot be rooted thanks to the Efuse partition protection system.

Ho ! St cloud vers Limoges
Je ne savais qu'on avait le root avec cette ROM.
Pas de problème de Bluetooth comme j'ai pu lire avec cette ROM ?

Merci à toi,
A plus

J'ai pas spécialement de bug de bluetooth, avec la première version officiel je galérais un peu avec le bluetooth mais la ça va. Il se désactive jamais, se connecte tout seul à ma voiture, mon casque audio. J'avais des micro coupures sur la musique mais c'était VLC, avec le lecteur intégré niquel.

après tu as toujours les soucis de notifications, genre messenger ou skype qui pour l'un ne s'affiche que quand je déverrouille le téléphone(si il est verrouillé durant plusieurs heures) et pour skype, j'ai la vibration, la led mais pas de notif.

Enfin bon, j'ai mon launcher, j'ai organisé mes icônes, et tout le reste fonctionne. On verra la suite, les prochaines sorties de Rom pour régler tout ça. Inchallah comme on dit ! :p enfin peut-être pas à Limoges

Restons calmes les amis.
Keep calm friends


L'install s'est bien passée, la rom à l'air propre, merci pour le coup de main esdes17_3
Mais le téléphone n'est pas du tout rooté ainsi, tu peux vérifier avec root checker ou supersu.
A suivre donc
(on est sur un forum international, chacun doit essayer d'y mettre du sien)

Thank for help esdes17_3, the rom seems quite good.
But the phone isn't rooted this way.

Nobody tried to root this phone ?

@MarcinP  thanks for the rules reminder, any help appreciated too ;)

Did you read and correctly understood my post???
Did I say anything about stop speaking etc.  NO!!!!!
I only want see your posts also translated in to English.
I know how to translate but this is not solution because simply is too much everyday to translate.
As I said "I don't mind if you use your own language but please provide translation underneath"
If you want only speak in your own language please open new topics in region section.

Unfortunately there is no possibilities to root device with Umidigi OS.
If you want more freedom in OS please use Basic ROM from here
