QMobile Noir A10 has the same processor as Noir A8, It runs on MediaTek mtk6577 chipset (SoC) which is a respectable hardware platform and includes the above CPU/GPU. This same chipset is also running on several other Chinese phones like Lenovo A789, Haipai X710d, Bird v1277, HDC S3 clone etc.
The best thing for you is, it already has been rooted. Bin4ry at xda-developers has created a sort-of universal rooting script for ICS and JellyBean devices, and it SHOULD be able to root your QMobile Noir A8 as well! Here’s how to root Noir A10:
Steps for rooting QMobile Noir A10:
- Download and extract THIS archive.
- Set phone to USB debugging mode from settings and connect to PC. When Windows ask for drivers, manually choose the location of the folder Noir A8 USB ADB drivers and install the drivers.
- Remove the cable, turn off your phone. Connect again to PC while it’s off, it will again ask for drivers. Now install driver from folder: Noir A8 preloader VCOM (thanks to max414 from PG for driver)
- Now turn it on and still keep in debugging mode. Navigate to the folder “Root_script_by_Bin4ry_v15″ and open Runme.bat. Follow the instructions (choose Normal mode) and you’ll have a rooted Noir A8! Check for superuser app and it should be in the app drawer.
You can mod it the way you like, install custom launchers and many more fun stuff! If you’re running out of internal memory (though 1GB is quite a lot for apps), you can always use Link2SD with microSD card.
