Sorry to bring this thread up again… Is there any recommendation on how to root the M64’s Android 6.0.1 v3 image (HDMI version) released in May 2017 (and are you working on an updated version of Android, btw)? The bootloader is unlocked via the developer options already.
I’ve been reading through the two posts, I’ve been trying to use several automated rooting apps (for both Android and Windows) without success. After that I’ve been tinkering with ADB and found out that you’re root when connecting to the M64 via “adb shell” command.
Knowing that I pushed busybox, su and Superuser.apk to /data/local/tmp/ and chmodded the permissions according to this guide https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2684210
I moved su and busybox to /system/bin/ and Superuser.apk to /system/app/Superuser/, so in theory all files are placed, permissions are set and SuperSU shows up in the app drawer. But when starting it, SuperSU still returns “No root” errors.
Atm I’m thinking about finding a generic TWRP image, but that wouldn’t help since i don’t see myself able to flash anything to the device’s partitions. Both commands reboot bootloader and reboot recovery fail anyway, they result in a boot loop, i guess.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, guys.
