**Check out the new root method here**

Recently another root method has been made for all LeTV phones (X500, X600, 1, pro, max ) including the new leTV 1S X500. This method only needs “one click” and everything will be taken care of.

Requires:

  • Any Windows Computer
  • iRoot

The following video shows how its done:

About iRoot (VRoot)
iRoot is a pretty popular phone hacking tool in China. I have installed this app personally and found it is safe for your computer. This app however does trigger a 17/53 Virus detection ratio on Virus total. The reason for this is that iRoot installs a few apps onto your phone during the installation process (you can uninstall them once your done). You can find more information about iRoot on XDA:

If you prefer a cleaner installation, check out my manual root tutorial.

Method:

  1. Connect your phone to your computer and enable USB debugging (See video)
  2. Install iRoot – Download (make sure you download the PC version. Android version does NOT work)
  3. After running iRoot, allow USB debugging authorization on your phone (pop -up prompt)
    Usb debugging popup
  4. Click the Green Root button on your PC. (you can ignore other popup prompts on your phone.)

That’s it! Your phone will turn black for 2 seconds and enter TWRP. Please do not turn off your phone or disconnect your phone during this period. The phone will then automatically install the root and reboot.

  2. It didn’t work for me.

    It says “rooting now” for a while, before changing to a screen saying “root failed”.

    At no point did I see ‘downloading recovery’.

    • Yes, exactly the same for me. Using iroot 1.8.8 on LETV 1
      The phone continually resets (vibrates / buzzes for a split second) and the circular “progress” arrow on the iroot screen spins round. After a couple of minutes it pops up the “Root failed” message.

      I’ve tried it several times now. It simply doesn’t work!

  3. Yes it works very well, when it says rooting this program wait For a long time, after five or ten minutes I disconect the cell phone and reconetc again, and thats it, iroot finished its work.

    Note: it is not a virus

  4. So my problem is that i have IRoot installed on my pc (The pc version) IRoot detects my Letv one pro X800 i click root … and after a while maybe 10-15 sec then some letters in chinese that i belive to say letv 1 pro and that it has failed
