If you are among those lucky ones who got a chance to pickup the Yu Yureka from Amazon and looking for a detailed guide on how to root your yureka, then I doubt that there is any better place than this. So keeping your worries aside, look nowhere if you want to root your device correctly.

Note – We are not responsible for any damage caused to your device. However, we will try our best to get your device recovered from any disastrous situations.

This detailed noob guide consists of 3 sections. The sections are-

  1. How to unlock Yu Yureka’s bootloader.
  2. How to flash TWRP recovery on Yu Yureka.
  3. How to root Yu Yureka by flashing SuperSU.

The files which are required for the process come from different resources and so we have compiled all of them to make a ‘Rooting Kit’. Please note that we do not take credits for any of the program in the rooting kit. Their respective developers are highly appreciated.

Download the rooting kit for lollipop CM12S from here.

Prerequisites

Before we go into the process, let do make some necessary settings on your Yureka.

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Scroll down and go to About Phone.
  3. Scroll down and tap build number 7-10 times until you see a popup stating ‘You are now a developer’.
  4. Press back and now a new section called ‘Developer Options’ will appear in settings. Tap on it and turn on the toggle at the top.
  5. Now scroll down and turn on USB Debugging.
  6. Now make a backup of all your data as the next step will wipe all the data present in the Internal Memory.
  7. Make sure you have 70-80% battery to prevent unexpected failures.

Disable driver signature enforcement if you are running 64bit version of windows 7. This can be done as follows-
When you boot screen comes up on your PC, press F8 a number of times until you see this boot menu –windows7_boot_menuNow, use arrow keys to navigate to ‘Disable Driver Signature Enforcement’ and press the enter key. Once you will press the enter key, Windows will disable driver signature enforcement for that boot only. If you restart, the settings will be back to normal.

How To Unlock Yu Yureka’s Bootloader

  • Extract the adb_fastboot file present in the rooting kit in a new folder in your C:/ drive.
  • Power Off your phone.
  • While continuously pressing the Volume Up key, connect your phone to the PC/Laptop via USB cable.
  • You will get a black screen stating ‘Fastboot Mode’ at the middle.
  • As soon as you plug your phone into the PC, windows will start installing drivers all by itself. Please wait for the installation to complete.
  • After the drivers have been installed successfully, go to the folder where you have extracted adb_fastboot file.
  • While pressing the Shift key on your keyboard, right click in the folder and select ‘Open Command Prompt Here’. The command prompt will open up.
  • Now type the following command to check if your device has been detected in the fastboot mode
    fastboot -i 0x1ebf devices
  • If all is well, you will get something like this.yureka-unlock-bootloader-1
    For those who are facing fastboot detection issues, follow the following steps – 
    1. Download the drivers from here and extract them in a new folder.
    2. Connect your phone to the PC.
    3. Press Win+X and open device manager.
    4. In ‘Other Devices’ section, you will see your Yu Yureka as ‘Android Device’. Right click and select ‘Update Driver Software’.
    5. Select ‘Browse my computer for software’. Now click ‘Let me pick’ option, click next, click on ‘Have Disk’ and browse to the folder where you extracted the drivers.
    6. Select ‘AndroidWinUsb.inf’ from there and click okay.
    7. Select the driver ‘Asus Driver Interface’ and click next and install the software.

  • Now run the following command
    fastboot -i 0x1ebf oem unlock
    You should get something like this.yureka-unlock-bootloader-2

Congo! Your Yu Yureka’s bootloader has been unlocked!

1. After unlocking the boot loader of your phone, reboot your phone normally. After rebooting you’ll find your phone brand new and all your data has been erased, you may also encounter the screen showing android is upgrading, (if you are doing this on lollipop), wait for it.

2. When the rebooting is done and everything is over, go to developer options in settings and make the following changes:

  • Advanced reboot – turn it ON
  • Update Cyanogen recovery – turn it OFF
  • Android debugging – turn it ON
  • Now, turn off your phone.

How To Flash TWRP Recovery On Yu Yureka –

  1. Copy the TWRP folder from the rooting kit to the internal storage of your phone.
  2. Now, copy the yu-twrp-recoveryx64 file from the rooting kit to the folder where you extracted adb_fastboot.
  3. Using the same old method, go into fastboot mode and open the command prompt. Now run the following command.
    fastboot -i 0x1ebf flash recovery yu-twrp-recoveryx64.img
  4. Once the recovery is flashed successfully, disconnect your phone.

How To Root Yu Yureka By Flashing SuperSU –

The files which are require to flash recoveries are different for kitkat and lollipop. However, to flash SuperSu zip on your device, you need to follow the same steps.

  • Copy the SuperSu file from the rooting kit to the root directory of your phone’s internal memory.
  • Power off your phone.
  • Now boot into recovery mode by pressing Volume Up + Volume Down + Power buttons simultaneously. You will see something like this.

twrp-yu-yureka

  • Now tap on ‘Install’.
  • Confirm that you are navigating in the internal storage of your device. Navigate to the place where you copied the SuperSU file. You can use the back buttons and ‘Up a level’ button to navigate.

TWRP-Recovery-Install-1-yureka

  • Tap on the file name and you will see something like this.

TWRP-Recovery-Confirm-Flash-Yu

  • Swipe to confirm flash. Now tap on reboot.

Hurray! All done! You have successfully rooted you Yu Yureka! You can check the root access by installing Root Checker app from the playstore.

I seriously don’t think that you will find a guide better than this. So, If you find it useful, then do check us out on Facebook and Twitter. Also, if you face any problems, then feel free to ask it in the comments section below.

  • RABEH BRAVE

    Thank you very much
    nice review I am sure that many people gonna to come here

  • Amit Routray

    can we get regular OTA updates after this rooting??

    • Himanshu

      Yes you can as long as your device is not heavily modified. But there
      might be a chance that you may break root access. This depends on what
      the OTA update consists of.

  • Victus

    I get an error on the last step when I try to install SuperSU update.
    E:failed to verify whole-file signature
    E:signature verification failed
    Installation aborted

    • Himanshu

      First make sure that you are using TWRP to flash the SuperSU zip. If you are using TWRP and still getting the error, then you can uncheck the “Zip File Signature verification” to solve your problem.

      Do let me know whether you’ve solved your problem or not.

    • Victus

      It worked thanks! The problem was that I was using a previous version of fastboot installed with the path saved by windows. I deleted the c:adb folder and then everything worked fine.

      • Himanshu

        Is that a fault of mine? Have i uploaded a previous version of fastboot or you had it earlier? Do let me know so that i can fix this if it is a problem from my side.

        • Victus

          It was due to a previous version of an adb exe that I installed. Your version is fine. However I still get an error at the end of the SuperSU installation.
          E: error sending message to remove storage 65539

          • Himanshu

            Try to ignore that error and check if the supersu application is available on your phone or not. Try running root checker and check if you are rooted or not.

            Do let me know if the problem persists.

          • Victus

            Dunno what happened but its working now! Thanks, the steps you’ve outlined are really the easiest of them all!

          • Himanshu

            Your welcome.

            Follow us on facebook.com/thetechnotriad

    • Victus

      Sorry, I get an error at the end again.
      E: error sending message to remove storage 65539

  • Praveen

    Hello Himanshu, I am not able to get install mode. It is redirecting to Recovery mode and I have the options as reboot the system now, apply update, ….. I have selected Apply update, but it is giving the error as Victus got. Please help out me.

    • Himanshu

      Which step are you taking about? Please give me a picture of the device so that I can clearly understand where you are getting the error?

      • anas

  • anas

    Hi, i am too getting the problem on last step i.e installing super su i receive msg that signature veryfication failed n i didnt get super su after rebooting neither does root checker veryfies

    Please tell me what to do

    • Himanshu

      Make sure that you’ve unchecked signature verification mark while flashing SuperSU

      • anas

        I am getting these pages on recovery mode n i dont find signature verification box

        • Himanshu

          You haven’t flashed twrp recovery!

          • anas

            Yes so now should i flash again twrp recovery on fastboot mode?

          • Himanshu

            Yes ofcourse!

          • Anas

            I flashed twrp recovery again bt no use the same recovery page i am getting as was before i also unlock bootloader n flash twrp bt srill m getting the same page on recovery mode…now please help me out…

          • Himanshu

            After flashing TWRP by fastboot, what command are you receiving from fastboot? Send me a screenshot.

          • anas

            Thanks! Finally got dont know what was the problem earlier….

          • Dhurba Karmakar

            I am having the same problem, how did you rfesolve it

  • Gowtham Viswanath

    i m not getting any thing in the command prompt and when i enter ‘fastboot -i 0x1ebf oem unlock’, it shows ‘waiting for device’

    • Himanshu

      Your device’s drivers are not installed correctly. Try to google for it.

      • Gowtham Viswanath

        when i connected the device via USB, my PC showed ‘Android not installed’…So what should i do for it?

        • Himanshu

          Restart your pc and phone.

          • Gowtham Viswanath

            i tried it in another pc…the same again….’Installing driver software’ dialog box pops up when i connected it…’Android searching for windows update’..’Android not installed’

          • Himanshu

            This basically means that your device’s drivers aren’t installed
            correctly. You can follow these steps to install the drivers correctly –

            1. Switch Off Your Phone and remove your battery.

            2. Connect your Yureka to the PC with USB cable (provided with the phone) without inserting your battery.

            3. Now you can see a red light in the notification area.

            4. Now, remove the USB cable and do the same process with battery inserted (Don’t switch on the phone.) It will install drivers.

            5. Now, switch on your phone after PC has installed the drivers, it will install some drivers again.

            I hope this works. If it does not, keep in touch.

          • kiss

            Hi
            Its same problems with me.
            I use this trick but not work…..?

  • anas

    Thanks himanshu finally rooted my yu…
    Jst bcoz of ur help…..

    • Himanshu

      I guess you were not able to flash twrp ? How did you finally did that? I don’t know why, but other people are also facing this problem. If you would help me in figuring this out, that will be a great help from your side.

  • Deepak Singh

    Hello, After unlock bootloader i flash twrp recovery on fastboot mode but on last step i.e installing super su i receive msg that signature veryfication failed n i didnt get super su after rebooting neither does root checker veryfies. this problem same as Mr. Anas’s problem.

    • Himanshu

      You haven’t flashes TWRP successfully. You are using cyanogen recovery to flash supersu zip which will not work. Flash TWRP and then flash supersu with it.

      • Deepak Singh

        How to ?

      • Deepak Singh

        tell me better option for me

          • pavan

            thanks so much for you quick reply…..firstly i am not getting the sceen like as you mentioned in the Step 3(root with flash)…

            so i went to ApplyUpdate–>Sd card–> selected SuperSu.ZIP. After few seconds it is showing install failed..

          • Himanshu

            This problem is very rare. What happens here is, the original recovery gets replaced by Twrp as soon as you flash it. Wait for sometime till i find a solution.

  • Deepak Singh

    what to do ? i flash again twrp recovery but problam is same.

  • Vineet Sharma

      3)Now right click on that yellow marked option and select “update driver software” and click on 2nd option –> browse my computer for driver hardware.

      4)Now select the option “let me pick from a list of device drivers” and list of drivers are displayed in the box available in pc.

    Hi Himanshu, Firstly thanks to you for sharing this to us…I cant able to root my device, eventhough i have flashes the TWRP successfully still i am facing the similar problem as mentioned by deepak in the below commaents…plz help me to root my yureka phone

    • Himanshu

      Try to omit the reboot command and disconnect the USB cable.

  • riddhesh

    the driver is not installing

  • Nikhil

    Thanks for the step by step procedure..
    at first, I got stuck at installing drivers probably because I’m on Win7 32bit. So, you should mention that the whole ‘installing drivers’ thing won’t work in Win7. As far as I can say is that you’re using Win8 (probably 64 or 32bit) by looking at the screenshot of the window.

    Anyway, I figured my way around it in some minutes & got in. Changed some things but coding. So yeah, thanks for the help.

    • Himanshu

      You’re welcome. By the way, it would be great if you will explain me how you installed drivers so that i could update the OP and let others enjoy.

      • Nikhil

        I believe in the saying-

    Please help.
    I have updated my phone to cm12.

    • Himanshu

      Make sure that you use the lollipop root kit only.

      • gaurav baldania

        Hi Himanshu,
        The main problem i was facing was that i was not able to get into recovery.
        so i flashed the recovery again, then i flashed the already downloaded the stock lollipop update and it all started working properly.

        I somehow forgot to take a backup before rooting which caused all these problems.
        But now alls good.

        Anyways thanx for replying and i’ll be sure to come here for any help in future.

        • Himanshu

          You’re welcome. If you find any error in the above post, then do inform me about the same. I’ll be grateful.

  • MANISH

    after flashing the twrp my phone start rebooting continously what i can do pls help me

    • Himanshu

      I think you have flashed the wrong recovery. If you are on lollipop, flash the lollipop recovery only. Otherwise you will brick your phone.

  • Arnav Biswas

    i tried to install root after entering recovery but the installation fails… it shows

  • Suraj

    shit…. dont root your phone with cm12 recovery given by this blogger u’ll brick ur phone… i’ve rooted my phone bfr

    • Himanshu

      the lollipop method given works fine. Make sure that you use that only and not the kitkat. Otherwise you will brick your phone

  • Mownica

    thanks for the detailed description Himanshu. While flashing SuperSu in the recovery mode for lollipop, the screen looks somewhat different than the screenshots here. But somehow managed to navigate to SuperSu Zip. When tapped on the file, a green color android symbol comes saying installing update but says installation failed. Errors are: failed to verify whole-file signature and signature verification failed. Finally installation aborted. Help plzzz

  • Sajid Shaikh

    pls do a root of new version Cyanogen OS 12 (YNG1TAS1K0) on yureka pleassssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

  • Samyak Gupta

    Thank You Technotriad, I successfully rooted my Yureka with Cyanogen OS 12 (YNG1TAS1K0). Keep up the good work.

    Though I would like to point out the most basic problem that most people are facing here. It is that when they reboot after flashing TWRP Recovery, they don’t get the TWRP Recovery menu, instead they get the Cyanogen Recovery menu. To overcome this problem, follow these steps:

    1. After unlocking the boot loader of your phone, reboot your phone normally. After rebooting you’ll find your phone brand new and all your data has been erased, you may also encounter the screen shown below (Android is upgrading screen, if you are doing this on lollipop), wait for it.

    2. When the rebooting is done and everything is over, go to developer options in settings and make the following changes:

    -Advanced reboot – turn it ON

    -Update Cyanogen recovery – turn it OFF

    -Android debugging – turn it ON

    and then turn off your phone.

    3. Flash it with TWRP Recovery. After flashing is done disconnect the phone from your laptop.

    4. Now you can boot your phone by pressing volume up + volume down + power button, and you’ll get the TWRP Recovery menu. Using the menu install SuperSU.

    • Himanshu

      Thanks for pointing out the problem. I’ll update the post with your instructions.

    • Ayush

  • Mothilal V.S

    There is no Asus Driver Interface in the list. Only closest Interface is Asus Fastboot Interface in fastboot detection issues. Can I go with it??? I warned me of selecting wrong drivers that is not compatible to my phone, and also in device manger it nor showing as yureka instead it is showing as Android.

  • Anand Meher

    Himanshu really appreciate ur Hard Work..
    Got through without any problems whatsoever

    • preetam sing
