How to root Cherry Mobile Flare S2?
If you have reviewed the specifications of Flare S2, you will find out that this smartphone was equipped with Mediatek (MTK) chipset, MT6582 to be specific. I've written few articles on developing MTK-based devices and we can actually use that for developing Flare S2 as well.
For rooting, one of the most popular apps we can use is Framaroot, a one-click android app for rooting. However, there are such devices which can't easily get rooted so I have an alternative solution whenever rooting from Framaroot doesn't work by using a computer app such as vRoot, Kingo, and Root Genius.
My recommendations to root Flare S2:
1. Use Framaroot
2. If Framaroot doesn't work, use vRoot or Kingo.
