How to Root the HDC X19i A9100 Cosmos X12 MT6573 Phone

We are talking about this phone.

First of all, your phone is on, go to the settings, applications - development and check the USB debugging mode:

connect the phone to your pc, it is of MOST importance, that the phone is recognized as an ADB-device in your device manager:






If it is not, the adb-drivers are missing. There are TWO possibilities to get those drivers:

1. Download PdaNet, install it and hope that the drivers are included for your system. Or:
2. Try these drivers.

Once your phone is recognized as an ADB-Device, you are ready to go.

Download Super One Click V2.2 and run it.





Leave all the default settings and click on "Root"
You will be asked:



Sure, why not :-)




Sure, why not :-)




That would be a decent thing to do ;-)

DONE.

You should now find a Superuser app on your phone, your phone should be rooted.

As a matter of fact, this USUALLY works with any MT6573 CPU phone, not just this model.

As always: YOU ARE DOING THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK

    1. I'm running out of ideas :-( Do you know what frequency Orange operates on? Maybe GSM 900, 850, 1900, 1800?

      If don't know if this will work but you can give it a try: Go into the engineer mode by dialing:

      *#*#3646633#*#*

      All the way at the bottom you'll find a "bandMode". you could try to set the phone to the right GSM frequency. I've never done that, so I really don't know if it'll work?

      Other than that, I can't think of a reason why you can't make calls :-(

  6. Orange operates is gsm 900 and in bandmode I can't select.

    1. The very last thing I can think of is, do a factory reset but it'll erase everthing you have installed on your phone. If that doesn't work, I GUESS that the phone has a hardware defect.

  15. Actually i also have IHTC Sensation XL G21+ purchased from fastcardtech.com at first the program was stopping at step 7 but one day in morning i used superclick version 2.3.1 and by passed step 7 and the phone was rooted successful coz i managed to uninstall useless Chinese apps but cant know the clear guide for how i did it as my friends phone same type up to now isnt rooted but i can just suggest that you keep on trying once it will root it as its kennel is locked so a bit hard to root.

    I have its original Rom from the manufacture so in case if you can root it successfully before flash it to your phone then i can give you a link where you can download it from and the password
