WHAT’S NEEDED TO PREPARE (APA YANG HARUS DISIAPKAN):

NOTE: Tidak direkomendasikan untuk menggunakan RKTool lain, selain yang tersedia di doc ini.

 

  1. RK29UPDATE = https://sites.google.com/site/gumbungredirect/javas/new%20cwm-sfat-rktool.rar
  2. JB-SuperSU.zip = http://205.196.123.98/40falj6vb51g/4df6a9spuddsqr6/JB-SuperSU.zip

 

 

 

####### ROOTING JELLY BEAN v4.1.1 #######

 

NOTE: Yang mau memori internal-nya jadi 2,5GB, mulai dari step 1a – 2a

 

1a. FLASH ULANG BATCH 2 (via RKTools)

  • Ubah PARAMETER jadi parameter2,5 (file bawaan RKTools di dlm folder img)
  • Sesuaikan file yang lain sama file yg ada di dlm folder IMAGE batch 2 (Loader; Misc; Kernel; Boot; Recovery; System)
  • Kalo udah detected sama RK29, FORMAT dulu.
  • Selesai format, UPDATE.

 

**Biarin SFAT rebooting sendiri. Memang agak lama, tapi tunggu aja.

 

2a. CHECK INTERNAL MEMORY (Selesai flash ulang dan reboot)

  • Masuk SETTING >> STORAGE (PENGATURAN >> PENYIMPANAN)
  • Kalo udah 2,5GB artinya berhasil.

 

—————————————————————————————————————————-

 

1. INSTALL JELLY BEAN 4.1.1

  • Unduh file JellyBean 4.1.1 || Version: v.41.3

https://www.facebook.com/groups/UnOfficial.Group.Smartfren.Andro.Tab.Skyworth.S7/doc/330201507064790/

  • Konek tablet ke PC pake kabel data, pilih Mass Storage
  • Selesai mengunduh, copy file-nya ke dalam SD Card, terus rename jadi: update.zip (INGAT, file masih dalam bentuk .ZIP)
  • Matikan Mass Storage di tablet dan cabut kabel USB-nya
  • Setelah selesai, sistem akan mendeteksi adanya file .ZIP baru untuk update (ini gunanya me-rename file jadi “update.zip”)
  • Pilih PASANG
  • Biarkan SFAT jalan sendiri, nanti dia bakal reboot dan booting-nya bakal lebih lama dari biasanya, jadi biarin aja.

 

2. MASUK ADB – Android Debug Bridge (harus sudah bisa terdeteksi ADB, yang belum, jangan lanjut)

 

Buat yang belum bisa masuk ADB, tutorial ADB disini (+Screenshot): http://hp-cdma.blogspot.com/2012/09/tutorial-lengkap-adb-tablet-smartfren.html

 

 

  • USB Debugging di centang, colok USB Smartfren Andromax Tab (dalam keadaan hidup) ke laptop/PC.
  • Buka Device Manager, Android ADB Interface terdeteksi, bukan RK29 devices

 

NOTE: Terkadang setelah update, ADB jadi ga deteksi lagi device-nya sbg Android ADB Interface, malah jadi S7. Utk yang ngalamin hal ini, lanjut ke step 2a >>

 

2a. INSTALL ULANG DRIVER ADB (yang ga kejadian kaya gini, bisa loncat ke step 3)

  • Di Device Manager, liat kalo driver ADB hilang atau belum install. Jika belum, pastiin ulangi cara install ADB di link tutorial diatas.
  • Jika sudah, jangan lupa utk cek apa sudah terdeteksi atau belum.
  • Cek dengan menjalankan cmd atau Command Prompt > Run as Admin
  • Ketik: cd\ [enter] cd adb [enter] adb devices
  • Kalo hasilnya:

 

list of devices

attached0123456789ABCDEF        device

 

Berarti berhasil. || NOTE: Kalo gagal, jangan lanjut ke step selanjutnya.

 

3. MASUK BOOTLOADER

  •  SFAT dalam keadaan hidup, posisi USB masih terkonek dgn PC/Laptop.
  • Kembali ke cmd atau Command Prompt, lalu ketik:

 

C:\Users\[Nama PC]>cd\

C:\cd adb

C:\adb>adb reboot bootloader

 

  • SFAT akan shut down secara otomatis dan menunjukan black screen/blank. (mulai deg degan brick gak ya???) jangan panik bila anda memakai softwares rk29 terbaru (link diatas), pasti berhasil hehehe.

 

4. INSTALL DRIVER RK29

  • Setelah SFAT shut down; install/update driver software Android ADB Interface dengan driver softwares rk29 di dalam folder RKtool/driver.
  • OPTIONAL: Jika terdeteksi Unknown Device, install driver RK29 di Unknown Device.
  • Setelah sukses install/update, Device Manager akan mendeteksi RK29 Devices. Buka/Jalankan RK29Update.exe (run as admin) di dlm folder RKTool, perangkat RKAndroid akan terdeteksi secara otomatis (Device RKAndroid detected!)

 

5. SETTING FLASH DI RK29Update

  • Centang pilihan berikut: Misc; Recovery (KOSONGKAN Parameter, jangan di centang. Jika ingin setting parameter, kembali keatas dan mulai lagi dari step 1a-2a, kesalahan pada parameter bisa menyebabkan BRICK)
  • Tanpa format/Erase IDB, klik UPDATE dan SFAT akan masuk ke menu CWM-based Recovery v5.5.0.4 secara otomatis. Perhatikan Device Manager, akan ada driver CM9 terdeteksi di Other devices.

 

6. INSTALL CLOCKWORLDMOD (CWM-based Recovery v5.5.0.4)

—Gunakan VOLUME UP-DOWN (+ -) untuk navigasi dan POWER untuk memilih—

 

Dibawah ini adalah step untuk menginstal CWM:

  1. Wipe data/factory reset
  2. Install zip from sdcard
  3. Choose zip from sdcard
  4. JB-SuperSU.zip || Pastikan file JB-SuperSU.zip ada di SDCard dan tdk ada di dlm folder manapun.
  5. Confirm install? THIS CAN NOT BE UNDONE || Pilih Yes – Install JB-SuperSU.zip
  6. Tunggu proses selesai dan ada tulisan: Install from sdcard complete
  7. Sekarang pilih: Go Back
  8. Reboot system now

 

7. CEK ULANG PERANGKAT DI DEVICE MANAGER

  •  Dalam Device Manager, terdeteksi S7 (DENGAN TANDA SERU KUNING)
  • Bila USB Debugging di aktifkan, maka S7 (DENGAN TANDA SERU KUNING) di Device Manager akan terdeteksi menjadi Android ADB Interface.

 

8. CEK ROOT

  •  Untuk melihat apa perangkat sudah ROOT atau tidak, cek aplikasi SuperSU di Menu. (Lihat gambar)
  • Jika SuperSU sudah terinstall, maka SFAT anda sudah ROOT.

 

 

Semoga bermanfaat! :D
