How to root Letv Le One Pro X800 on Android 5.0 Lollipop [Guide]

Letv Le One Pro X800The Letv Le One might not be one of the most popular smartphone out west, but it’s selling substantial units over in China. Fittingly, a Chinese team of third-party developers are the one’s responsible for creating a working rooting method for the Pro X800, and it’s done using Kingroot. Here’s all you need to know:

REQUIREMENTS

  • Turn on the Letv Le One Pro and head to the About Device to check you have the X800 variant. The guide isn’t intended to work with any other model number.

BEFORE WE BEGIN

  • You don’t need to download any USB Drivers, unlock the Developer Options or enable USB Debugging Mode since you can use this rooting method directly from the app drawer on your Android smartphone.
  • The Kingroot tool does void the warranty even though it’s regarded as more of a ‘soft root’ and not a full or ‘hard’ one.

HOW TO ROOT THE LETV LE ONE PRO X800 RUNNING ANDROID 5.0 LOLLIPOP

The KingRoot tool is not currently rooting the Letv le One smartphones. We will update the guide when we find out about a working method.

1. Download the Kingroot tool directly to the smartphone here.

2. Open the app as you would any other after it finishes downloading.

3. Depending on your app version, you’ll get “Try Root” or “Start Root”. Click the option you see on the display after opening the app.

4. You’ll see the progress bar circling around the display as it tries rooting your device. Wait until it finishes.

5. Once the app has done it’s job, you must manually reboot your smartphone.

Now you are free to install those cool root-only apps from Google Play. You’ll still need to install a custom recovery if you wish to flash a custom ROM.

If you are having second thoughts about rooting the One Pro and wish you hadn’t, you can easily undo the changes by learning how to unroot the Letv Le One Pro X800 smartphone.

    KingRoot not work for me on Letv x800+ dear…

    Thanks for the feedback.

    If this guide doesn’t work, then I don’t think there is currently a working method for this device — not that I can see anyway.

    The good news is that it’s impossible to brick the device using this method, but I’ve since learnt that no device under the “Letv” brand is generally supported by this tool.

    When the KingRoot tool first came out is was dubbed the tool that can root any Android device, then the tool which can root almost any Android device and the later the tool that can root most devices from the main 5 or 6 brand only.

    Thankfully, this was one of the only guides I created outside of the working methods.

    The reason your device is so hard to root is because it isn’t all that popular and when a device isn’t very popular there aren’t developers who spend time on them. Maybe in the future they will or maybe it will be best to buy something a little more mainstream if you are wanting to root and install a custom recovery on the device.

    My apologies!

    It didn’t work, I get “Root failed” here aswell… why can’t I seem to root this phone?

  • DT

    I did download the apk to my x800 and it didnt work. Also tried it via the desktop app. Also failed.

    There is a GUIDE on XDA from July about successful ROOT and custom recovery, but the links we’re pulled down.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
