On your Computer (Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 or XP)

  1. Install the drivers for your phone using Snap pea .
  2. Download the following zip file (choose the correct model of you phone):
    1. Letv-x600-TWRP-Recovery-2.8.6.0
    2. Letv-Pro1-TWRP-recovery-2.8.7.0
  3. Extract the zip file into a folder in you pc.

On your phone:

  1. Go to settings, and find the “about’ page. There click the Build number until you enable developer options.
  2. Under developer options, tick “USB Debugging
  3. Plug in your phone
  4. Copy SuperSu.zip, TWRP, Letv google-new from your computer to your phone

On your Computer

  1. Launch the Chinese bat file
  2. Press enter. This will send your phone into a mode with a black screen with the words “fastboot” on the bottom. Don’t worry about the black screen – this is exactly where you want to be!
  3. Press enter again and again 2-3 times to complete the recovery flashing.
  4. Once the flashing is complete, you will see an [OK] on your phone followed by a boot into TWRP!
  5. TWRP recovery. At first you will see a chinese TWRP welcome screen.

TWRP is a Recovery program designed to flash zips. On your phone go and click Flash zips and flash the included files:

  • SuperSU gives you root
  • GooglePlayServices gives you Google Play Store, Youtube, Gmail and other google related services!

      • Hi,
        Im no geek, so i would just like to know if its possible for a novice or amateur to root the play store app on the Le1 Pro ?

        I recently purchased this phone in China and i am tryoing to load some apps that are google related such as gmail, magic jack app, etc and unable to load any of those.

        Yr help is appreciated.

        Thanks in advance.

  1. for english TWRP follow the instruction for chinese TWRP and than do the following:

    Now go to your pc and download a TWRP theme from here:
    https://s.basketbuild.com/devs/z31s1…TWRP%20287X_v1

    10. Make a folder named “theme” and copy the downloaded theme from the upper link inside this folder and rename it to “ui”
    11. Copy this theme folder in to the TWRP folder of your phone
    12. Then again power off your phone and and go to recover by volume up + power button and voila you will have English TWRP

  2. My phone refuses to enter fastboot mode. The bat file will not do it; it simply says ‘entering fastbood mode’ and the phone displays a penguin. I left it like this for one hour and nothing happened.

    If I disconnect the phone from my computer, switch it off and hold volume down + power, I get the picture of the penguin on my screen and nothing else happens.

    Has anyone got an idea of what I do in this situation?

  3. […] 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: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2434453 If you prefer a cleaner installation, check out my manual root tutorial. […]

  4. After executing the .bat file then press ENTER a few times, my X600 reboots a few times. I saw fastboot in between. However it finally gets back to a common rebooting with nether TWRP nor root.

    The one-click method also did the same thing. No TWRP and root failed.

    My current rom is experimental version from EUI website (11Nov2015)

    Please advise.

  5. I tried this on my x600. It failed to root now the phone won’t go into recovery mod or will it factory reset what as gone wrong

  6. Google clean install letv x600. I’ve done the same as you. Now fixed using clean install. Still can’t get twrp loaded so have left if alone for a bit. At least phone works and has all Google apps working. A few minor bugs but working and very very minimal Chinese apps/text.

  7. Same problem. Everything seems to work, but atfer flashing the recovery-file to the phone (and it says OK, both program and phone) phone reboots to normal EUI. Did a factory reset. Problem persist. iRoot looks ok until it stops saying FAILED.
