Utsav Verma / / 0
There are different custom ROM's & root methods for the K860 & K860i. Most of the root methods & ROM's are compatible with both the K860 and K860i. Read the full thread to be sure.
I'll update this post regularly, if there are any changes needed please say so in the thread or PM me (still WIP for adding the latest stuff).
Below you can find everything!

- Root methods & stock ROM's + MOD's/fixes:

There is an APK root method, linked below, or you can use the original not so easy root method:

I did some research on how to root it.
I found some steps on this Chinese website.

What I understand from it is you have to do the following steps to root:

- Set the phone to USB debugging in it's settings
- Make sure drivers are installed and the phone is recognized well by the phone PC software
- Close all the PC phone software applications
- Make sure no other android or smart/USB-device is connected except for the phone itself
- Download this file: root files, download link is also below in the attachment.
- Unzip it and launch the .exe (executable file) with the Chinese characters (should be first .exe in directory)
- The shell/CMD should start the root process
- The phone will automatically restart, don't touch it or any button, don't interrupt the shell program!
- Now after the reboot of the phone you should press any key on your keyboard when asked
- The shell program should continue, the phone will restart again!
- Again press any key to continue and wait for the shell program to reboot your phone for the third time (this can take some time, be patient!)
- When rebooted the "Operation was successful" message should appear in the shell program
- Now your K860 is rooted! Look for the root app in your phone to confirm. If rooting didn't work, try this process again
- Also update the Superuser or superSU app & binaries
Root method works, users already confirmed this!

Added by marcoruzza:

I want to note that I'm not responsible for any bricked phone by using these root/ROM's!
It is all at your own risk!
Also backup all data before rooting or flashing the phone!
