I need to root a custom MTK Android device. This device does not have volume keys at all so unlocking bootloader is impossible.(If anyone knows differently please educate me)
What I did previously that worked was use SP Flash Tool to flash over just the custom recovery. Then I would 'adb reboot recovery' and boom... there's my TWRP and I can easily root. We recently got some software upgrades so I flashed them over (complete ROM), device works great. But now, when I flash over my custom recovery and boot to it I get the native android recovery. It flashes successfully, it's definitely the right recovery.img... how is this possible. Any advice would be MOST appreciated.
