Cherry Mobile Flare S2 Development Tutorials


While waiting for the one to share an already finished work, why not try it out of our own? So today, we will help each other to contribute for the development of Cherry Mobile Flare S2.

This article will be discussing and will seek the ways to improve Cherry Mobile Flare S2 experience. We will know how to root, flash custom recovery such as CWM and to provide ROMs applicable for the said device, Flare S2.

First, getting a backup for Cherry Mobile Flare S2


Before trying anything you are not familiar with, make sure to always prepare for a backup just in case something wrong will happen, you can restore the previous working state of your device software. Backup fixes almost all android problems so that is why I am recommending you to do it first.


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.

Next, how to flash custom recovery on Flare S2


What's always next to rooting is flashing custom recovery for backing up your device easily also for flashing mods most especially for installing ROMs. Luckily, Cherry Mobile Flare S2 is a Mediatek-based smartphone, it will be easier to port CWM recovery in no time.

Flashing ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery


CWM recovery is the most popular custom recovery nowadays that's why I suggest you'll install it in your Flare S2 ASAP. Let's get it flashed then by just visiting my separate article:

  1. i bought this FLARE S2 last saturday 5/24/14 at 8:00 pm and tested it in all aspects and it is ok but when i tried to use the launcher applications (eg:go launcher/nova launcher) and tried to set it as a default.. the phone wont let me because it does not have an option to choose a default launcher… i had already escalated this to the cherry mobile center in sm dasma on sunday morning and they said it was for REFORMAT and i agreed to it but when i claimed it yesterday.. nothing has changed… THEY SAID THAT IT WAS FOR SYSTEM UPDATE BUT WHY AM I THE ONE EXPERIENCING THIS ?? my friend’s default launcher option for flare s2 is working and mine was not and THEY ARE GIVING ME THAT EXCUSE? WOW… MY PHONE WAS STILL UNDER 7 DAYS REPLACEMENT AND THEY EVEN DIDNT EVEN WANT TO REPLACE IT? THAT WAS A FACTORY DEFECT!
    Issue: home button doesnt have default launcher option.

    They said that it was a system issue for all cherry flare S2 Not having Default launcher options when you press the home button…

    Are you also experiencing this?

    1. probably its a software problem. Go to Settings > Apps > select the current default Launcher app, scroll down and check if Clear Defaults button is enabled. Hit it and press the home button of your flare s2.

    2. I tried it, but it will asks for default launcher in everytime you press the home button even you chose the "always". :(
