How to Root Tecno Phantom 6 (A6) in Easy Steps

One thing that made me love Android device is for the facts
that you can tweak it flip it until you milk it to your satisfactions. As long
as Android devices are concern, they are rootable. I root my device for this
most important reason, to have dominion over it completely… I don’t know about
you.

This is one of the beastly device unveiled by Tecno Mobile few
weeks ago, it runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and I’m going to
be showing you how to root it in easy steps.
All thanks to Team Hovatek, for porting and deporting the rooting
guides.

2. Twrp recovery image Ported by Team Hovatek (download
here)
3. Super SU.zip (download it here)
4. Unlocking the boot-loader of Tecno Phantom 6 (A6)
How Can I Root Tecno Phantom 6?

    • Hello Mabel, I think there is a comprehensive detail on how to root your W4 from the link provided under your first comment. Please follow the link and let us know if it work

  1. My honourable Prof how can I skip this 2G network on tecno c5…. on the network setting it only have 2G/3G and only 2G no standby 3G

    • Go to Googleplay and download MTKengineer mode. Open it and click on MTK settings, under TELEPHONY,scroll down and click on NETWORK SELECTING. From there u will see Gsm, wcdma only, Gsm/wcdma(auto) then select( WCDMA only) that's all.

    • Take note that after selecting Only 3G as directed by R&B when their no 3G network it will not show any internet at all

      Why Phone maker put 2G/3G is that when 3G is not available it automatically select 2G which is Edge.

  2. @ Akor, thank you, it worked. Do you have any solution to this issue of tecno w4 not allowing saving files directly to the SD card, even when you select the SD card as primary storage,it will automatically switch back to internal memory.

  3. my Phantom 6 plus is available for sell.. new and working perfect with complete accessories and receipt… going for 125K
