How to Root Motorola MB886

Motorola MB886 and VRoot are the smartphone and the rooting tool which are the stars of today’s tutorial. The reason we selected the VRoot is that it is one of the rooting managers which delivers everything it promises. So you will never feel like it doesn’t rise up to expectations, because it does and then some.

The VRoot comes from a developer in China. What sets it apart from all of the other rooting tools created thus far is a myriad of qualities. The most important ones are as follows:

- your phone will get to use apps that are only available for a rooted device;
- there will be new features to look forward to;
- the phone is going to have a battery that will last more compared to the current possibility;
- your handset is going to display better performance;
- you will get access to tweaks with which you will be able to change what you don’t like about your MB886;
- and more.

The VRoot is the kind of root manager which works on various Android versions (starting from the 4.0 and continuing on to the 4.3 variant). And you can even install the tool if you are not a pro at such procedures.

From personal experience, we can say that the VRoot is not capable of flashing SuperSU (or superuser) on the Motorola MB886. Don’t worry, though. Our guide features the method to get the SuperSU. You will find it at the end of this post.


But let’s return to the VRoot now. We recommend you to look at some pre-requisites before we tell you how to root your smartphone.

Here you go: look for your PC and don’t leave it out of your sight, save the data that’s on your phone in the form of one or several backups and turn on USB Debugging. If your Motorola MB886 does not sport TWRP or CWM, it’s totally fine; there is absolutely no need for a custom recovery.

You will now have to start searching for VRoot_1.6.0.3690. This is the complete name of the rooting manager we are using for our guide. Once you find the tool online, you need to look at these guidelines:

  • save the file on your computer after you’ve downloaded it there;
  • install the VRoot_1.6.0.3690 on the MB886;
  • open this file;
  • find out how to root your smartphone.

How to flash vRoot tool on your PC

To actually properly install the VRoot on your Motorola MB886, you need to do as shown below:

  • go to where you saved the VRoot_1.6.0.3690
  • open the same
  • wait for a window to appear and tap “Next”install-vroot-step1
  • make sure you tap the same option again after you’re done with the previous action
  • when you spot “Don’t create a Start Menu folder”, click on itinstall-vroot-step2
  • click on “Next” and then click on “Create a desktop icon”install-vroot-step3
  • tap “Next” and see if there’s a “Completing the ROOT” on the screeninstall-vroot-step4
  • if it is, you have to uncheck the option called “Launch ROOT” (that is, if you absolutely don’t desire to open the rooting file once you’ve clicked on “Finish” in the same window).


For the rooting process, we ask you the following:

  • refrain yourself from installing ClockworkMod or TeamWin Recovery Project on the phone;
  • turn USB Debugging on;
  • always have your personal computer close by;
  • be sure to save the data that’s on your phone and do so via one or two backups (or as many as you think are needed).

Now that you know what the first couple of things to do are, we should inform you of the following: since SuperSU will not be part of your phone, we will describe the steps needed for its flashing on your device. That will happen at the end of the rooting phase.

How to root your device

After the steps we just mentioned are taken into account, we will finally line up all the steps that will root your Motorola MB886. Without further delay, here you go:

  1. Open the rooting file and have patience till you are welcomed by a message. After you see this message, we ask that you connect your phone to your computer;
  2. For the next couple of seconds, a detection will take place and at the end of this, the MB886 will have been found;
  3. Time for an image to come on the display (make sure this pic has your gadget’s name in it);
  4. A key colored in green will appear very soon;device-recognized
  5. When it does, click on it (it should contain “Root”) and wait until the rooting begins.
  6. In case the phone does not get recognized, we advise you to do this: install, on your computer, USB drivers that work best with your phone. The rooting of your device will not take too long; while the process is still under way, we recommend you to keep your devices plugged to one another for the next 2 minutes.
  7. As soon as a message is revealed on your phone’s display, you can disconnect your MB886 from your PC after the phone reboots. That’s all: your gadget is rooted!root-confirmation

Optional: How to install SuperSU

The next guide is optional, but it’s needed in case you want to get rid of a Chinese root manager whose name starts with some weird Chinese characters then 1.0.4. To replace it, you will have to flash SuperSU, an app. Here’s how:

  • go to Play Store;
  • look for the app there;
  • download and flash it on your MB886;
  • launch it;
  • wait till the weird 1.0.4 tool asks you for permission;
  • opt for the button it’s on the right side and it means “Allow”);
  • click on “OK” when you’ll be asked to flash the SU binary;
  • make sure you freeze Chinese 1.0.4 tool in titanium backup;
  • make sure you run, again, the SuperSU app (the latter means that you should wait for a message which tells you that you need to install this app again);
  • your Motorola MB886 is going to be rooted with the app in question.

When you freeze the Chinese 1.0.4 tool, you should keep this in mind: in case you want to wish to uninstall from App Manager, you should first see if the SuperSU has made an update of the binary.
