What is Rooting and its benefits? —its like jailbreaking but its your Android phone, unlocking the capabilities of your Android device with the apps and tweaks that requires root access to the Android system. Its not necessary but if time came and you realized that you need to root your phone, then it must be it.

1st way:                                                                                   

Alright, let's start on rooting the phone.

Disclaimer: This root may cause damage to your phone. But nothing happened on my phone, it even made it a great phone! ;-)

Here are the files and requirements needed to root MyPhone A818 Duo.
  1. Android SDK 
    • You may download the file here.
  2. Google USB Driver
    • The Google USB Driver can be download using the Android SDK.
    • For instructions on how to download Google USB Driver click here.
  3. SuperOneClick
    • I have no site to host the file but you may search Google for the file or click here. Check tomorrow and I will host the file somewhere. :-)
    • You may download SuperOneClick here.
    • There's no need to install SuperOneClick, you just need to unzip or extract the rar file.
  4. Make sure that your Phone is fully charge. We don't want the phone dying while performing root.
Step 1:
  • Install Android SDK in your computer after downloading.
    • The filename is installer_r20.0.1-windows.exe
Step 2:
  • Install Google USB Driver from Android SDK by following the instructions here .
  • Kindly check the screenshot below to ensure that you installed the driver correctly.

Step 3:

Connect your Myphone A818 Duo to your computer by USB cable.

You will now need to do some settings in your MyPhone A818 Duo
  • Go to Settings > Applications
    • Check "Unknown sources"

  • Go to Settings > Applications > Development
    • Check "USB debugging"
    • Check "Stay awake"

Step 4:

  • Open SuperOneClick Program. 
    • You will need to extract the file to a folder because I upload it as a compressed winRAR file.
  • Run SuperOneClick by clicking the "SuperOneClick.exe" Icon

  • SuperOneClick should be open now.

  • Click on "Root".

  • Answer "Yes" to the prompt, if there are any prompts. 
  • You will now have the Myphone A818 Duo rooted.
  • To check for successful root, search for the "SuperUser" Icon.

  • Install MTK CPU-Control Test from Google Play site and allow application for SuperUser access. You will now be able to adjust performance. Please note that I am only using the free version of MTK CPU-Control. It is working fine, no problem. The only difference from the full version is the little Ads shown at the bottom.

  2. can rooting make my phone be an ICS android version? sorry for this laim question im jut a kid

    1. Hmm..yea just as Aakash Nepal said you can flash(format) your mobile with new custom Roms.if you have low end devices( usually with less than 258 MB Ram ), you will experience speed and battery life problems in your mobile while adding ICS based custom Roms.but if you add low android based custom roms which are suitable for your mobile then you gonna rock.Remember after rooting your warranty voids.and if you miss some steps you may brick your device(device may not startup)

    2. No rooting doesn't make your phone ICS version but after rooting you can flash custom ICS based kernels and Roms on your mobile.Rooting can give you all freedom to make what you want on your mobile.
