How To Root InFocus M370 & M370i Marshmallow ROM

If you own an Infocus M370 or M370i device running Marshmallow and wish to root it, follow the guide below to properly and safely root your phone to avoid bricking it.

Thanks to Taiwan101 Dev. Team for porting TWRP 3.0.2 recovery to M370 & M370i.



Rooting InFocus M370 / M370i Marshmallow

  • After downloading TWRP from the above link and installing adb on your PC
  • Extract twrp-recovery-v3.0.2.0_infocus-m370.img to any folder
  • Download SuperSU zip package and copy to your phone's sdcard root
  • Connect your device to PC and launch command prompt from the folder where the twrp-recovery-v3.0.2.0_infocus-m370.img file is located
  • (Optional) To avoid mistakes in file name when typing commands in CMD, rename to twrp.img
  • Now type the following commands in CMD
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot -i 0x0489 boot twrp.img

  • Once TWRP boots completely, select Install and navigate to where you have copied the SuperSU package to
  • Select the file and swipe to flash
  • Reboot your phone to system
  • Done

You have successfully gained root access on your InFocus M370 / M370i Marshmallow stock rom.

  1. Instead of booting to twrp i flashed it and now my phone is only booting into twrp recovery what should i do ?

    1. What partition did you flash it on: boot or recovery?

    2. I just added stock recovery image to downloads above. Download and reflash.

    3. Thank you for your help I'll try and let you know if it'll work.

    4. It worked thank you again...

  2. I did this "fastboot oem unlock-go" action, how to relock?

    1. FAILED (remote: unknown command)
      Another boot I do not know why the direct access to twrp, direct access to the system with the following instructions
      Fastboot -i 0x0489 oem idme bootmode 0x4000
      The response is
      FAILED (remote: unknown command)
      Finished. Total time: 0.016s

    2. Mr Taysu, your bootloader needs to be unlocked, not locked!

    3. Do this one action (fastboot oem unlock-go)
      stock ROM update with the original, recovery has no access ??.

    4. Have you tried booting the TWRP recovery on your phone?

    5. yes
      fastboot -i 0x0489 boot m370.img
