LeEco, the company that was known as LeTV, has now begun manufacturing smartphones that run on the Android operating system. One of their recent launches is the LeEco Le Max 2 smartphone that runs Android and is a premium looking smartphone worth taking a look at if you want to buy a new device.

The phone features a 21MP camera capable of taking high-quality photos, 6GB of RAM to ensure your apps and games never has lag, 5.7 inch screen size, and a 3100mAh battery so that your phone runs the entire day without requiring charging in between.

LeEco Le Max 2 Recovery

While the company has loaded the phone with all of the apps you need to do your tasks, there are still many things you can get on your phone if you root it. These things are root-requiring apps, custom ROMs, custom kernels among many. Flashing these things on your phone lets you get the most out of your device, and these things make your phone work at its fullest which the stock stuff prevents it from doing so.

Before you can root your LeEco Le Max 2, you need to have a custom recovery installed on it. And to get that recovery, you can follow our tutorial below that teaches exactly that:

Files You Need

  1. This tutorial is written keeping the Windows version of Fastboot in mind. You can install ADB for Mac or ADB for Linux if you use any of these two OSes to do the following tutorial.
  2. You should have ADB USB drivers installed on your Windows computer. Install them if they are not already.
  3. Since this will unlock the bootloader, all the data on your phone will get erased. So, backup everything that you wish to preserve.
  4. The following guide will flash a custom recovery called TWRP on your Le Max 2 phone.
  5. Download Root Package and save it to your computer. It contains both root files and a custom recovery for your phone.
  6. You must only do this on a LeEco Le Max 2 phone. Doing this on any other phone will result in a brick of the phone.

  6. Let your computer install the required drivers.
