It was only a few days ago we covered the root for the brilliant Tecno N3 smartphone and now we are pleased to show you how to root the enhanced new version of the device, the Tecno N7. Dubbed as one of the best smartphones on the market for both price and performance, this mobile is turning heads with its sleek design, decent 5” display, and 5MP camera. The method itself comprises two separate ‘roots’ so to speak, make sure you complete both of them to be successful.

Before you begin:

  • This guide is designed to be performed with a Techno N7 running Android ICS only.
  • Please ensure you a performing this root using a PC running Windows 7.

The Tecno N7 root guide:

Step 1: First off, download and install the following to your desktop:

  • Super one click
  • Unlock root

Step  2: Once done, make sure your device has USB debugging switched on. To achieve this, simply go to ‘Settings’ > ‘Developer Options’ > ‘Debugging’ > ‘USB debugging’.

Step 3. Now using the USB cable, connect your device to your PC. At this stage, the driver should install on your PC. If not you may need to do it manually, if you launch the Super one-click tool it will ask you if you want it to install drivers, confirm this.

Step 4. Once the drivers are installed you can reconnect your device to your PC.

Step 5. From the Super one-click tool select ‘Root’. Be patient while your device roots.

Step 6. You will be presented with a pop-up asking you if you would like to install some files. Select ‘Yes’ to continue.

Step 7. You will see a message along the lines of ‘Tecno N7 phone rooted’.

Step 8. Now you will need to launch the Unlock root tool you downloaded in step 1.

Step 9. From the home screen select the ‘Root’ option, you will get a pop-up advising you that your device has already been rooted but just ignore it and continue.

Step 10. Once it has finished you will see a message saying ‘Successful’. At this stage download both Root checker & Superuser from Google Play.

Now that you have finished, you can instantly download rooted apps. Furthermore, you may be interested in checking our custom ROMs.
