How To Root Gionee Elife E7 With Ease

How To Root Gionee Elife E7 With Ease

Gionee Elife E7 is the best phone I have seen till now. It's looks, it's camera and all the features makes it one of the best mobile phone of 2014.
If you are using the mobile phone, then I am sure you have captured some great pictures which people cannot capture even with their Xpiera android mobile phones.
I saw this device in my uncle's hand and my mouth was wagging and I was desperate to put my hands on that awesome device. After sometime, I asked him to give his phone and WOW, it was just WOW. Beautiful UI, ultimate camera, sleek design and an awesome out-look. The screen was also awesome and colors were popping out from that HD screen.
Gionee Elife E7 has 3 GB RAM of which I was only able to get 1.5 GB RAM and that was enough for me to play games like Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, Need For Speed Most Wanted and other high end games. It was fun to play these games on a big 5.5 inch touch screen. After using it for some time, I realised that it was just an improved version of Elife E6. It's Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 clocked @2.2GHz made the games butter smooth and I think they were running faster than the Nexus 5, because I got some lags in the Nexus 5. However, the game was also improved by the graphic card: Adreno 330. Camera, oh man, it was fantastic. Tons of feature that you won't even get in your cameras, handicams etc. It has 16 Mega Pixels rear camera and a 5 Mega Pixels front camera. I had 32 GB model in which I think I stuffed over 10 HD Games like listed above. But the thing irritated me was the OS. Android 4.2 OS? Puff..! Gionee could have made this device with Android 4.4 Kit Kat or even with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The OS was boring.
Soon I was damn bored with this device and I planned to root it.
I grabbed USB Drivers from official Gionee website and installed on my computer. Then enabled USB debugging and tried many softwares to root my device. Finally VRoot rooted my Gionee Elife E7 and then I 'Xposed' it and enjoyed.
Let me show you how to root Gionee Elife E7 without any chance of bricking.

Points to remember

    1. Hey Rohan,
      Thanks for the tutorial, but the Vroot tool seems to be for PC only. Is there a mac link to it?


    2. Sorry Aditya,
      There's no VRoot available for MAC OS!
