I have tried kingoroot, Towel Root, Framaroot as well as WMShua to root Xolo Q1010i but at last stage the message "Sorry Root Failed" appears.

Kernel version : 3.4.67

Please provide me with other ways.

  • It appears that the mentioned Root apps are unable to find a working exploit as I noted bellow, I think you will have more luck with rooting your device if you flashed a different ROM on it. (pre-rooted if possible).

Here is the info I have found on how to do this:

  • Download and install Framaroot (donation app)
  • Open the application
  • Select "Install SuperSU"
    enter image description here
  • Click on Barahir
    enter image description here
  • You will now see a popup. Reboot your device now and you are rooted enter image description here

After Successful attempt, here's the complete step-by-step procedure of rooting Xolo Q1010i.

Root Xolo Q1010i Using Kingroot Android App

  • Download and install KingMaster, Kingroot and Kinguser android application from official website. The website is in Chinese language, but you can easily download using blue download buttons.

  • Open Kingroot android app and click on green round button. Your device may restart.

  • Now open KingMaster application from app drawer, you will get a pull down window! Click on root now button. You can also watch video for the same.
  • After few minutes KingMaster will root your Xolo Q1010i without KitKat update.

Root Xolo Q1010i By Flashing Pre- Rooted Android 4.4.2 KitKat Stock ROM

  • Framaroot will not work on our Xolo Q1010i after KitKat update. If you have stock Jelly Bean then you should use Framaroot method.
  • If not then, First we need to flash custom recovery on our Xolo Q1010i in-order to flash Pre-Rooted stock ROM.


Rooting Instructions

  • Download and extract all files. Place all Downloaded Files in the same place for easy access. I recommend you to turn off your antivirus to avoid permission related issues.

Step 1

  • Install The MTK USB Drivers on Your PC by Clicking on Install.bat in Driver_Auto_Installer_v1.1236.00 folder.
  • Open SP Flash Tools folder and click on flash_tool.exe. In The Flash Tool window Click on Scatter-Loading, Select MT6582_Android_scatter_emmc.txt and Press Open.

Step 2

  • In Flash Tool Window Tick RECOVERY and Click on the Blank Green Space Beside It and select recovery.img.

Step 3

  • Switch Off Your Device and Connect it to your PC. Now press on green download button at the top.
  • The status bar at the bottom will Change it’s Color Red Then Yellow and Finally show a Download OK Dialog Box.
  • Now disconnect your phone and close SP Flash tool.
  • Press and Hold Volume UP and Power Button Together till it powers UP.
  • Now your phone boots into Recovery Mode, In it Press Install Zip -> Choose Zip SDCard -> Select the SuperSu.zip You Placed Earlier in Your SDCard and Press YES to Install.
  • On Complete Installation, Reboot Your Device, CONGRATULATIONS ! You’ve Successfully Flashed carliv recovery on your device!

So now we need to flash Pre- Rooted Android 4.4.2 KitKat ROM into our Xolo Q1010i smartphone.

  • Download Pre-Rooted Flashable Zip of Stock Android 4.4.2 KitKat ROM.

  • Place SuperSu Zip (downloaded in first step) and Pre- Rooted KitKat in your SD Card.

  • Goto Recovery Mode, Go To Install -> Install from SD -> Select the ROM File and press YES to Flash it and Do the Same for the SuperSu Zip after Flashing completes.

  • Reboot, now you successfully flashed Pre- Rooted Android 4.4.2 KitKat Stock ROM on your Xolo Q1010i.

In other words, now you have successfully rooted your Xolo Q1010i with Android 4.4.2 KitKat update.

    Thanks a lot, Gulam – also in the name of the "other user in need", who lacks the rep to comment here. Quoting him: Before I could read your reply, I rooted my phone through iroot. It got stuck in the first attempt. In the second attempt it rooted but did not install any superuser. I downloaded supersu and installed it. Also checked thru rootchecker. Its working fine. Thanks for all the help. Guess that means I should also upvote for him :)
