How to Root Tecno N3 Android using Pook & Ministro IIHow to Root Tecno N3: The new Tecno N3 is quite a beauty and it’s one of the cheapest Android phones in Nigeria today, for just N13,000 (Thirteen Thousand Naira) you can acquire it. The Tecno N3 is a cheap dual SIM phone with a lot of awesome features. Rooting Tecno N3 will give you a super user privilege that can allow you to do anything at all you want with your phone, you can even run a custom ROM on the Tecno N3, and so many more.

But my main aim of rooting Tecno N3 is to be able to use DroidVPN on it since it requires only rooted Androids to be able to work. So let’s see how you can easily root your Tecno N3 using Poot and Ministro II. So let’s start by downloading these apps…

    i did the rooting of my tecno N3, but in the proceess, it wrote insufficient memory while ministro II was being installed after it was downloaded. it took me to running services frm where i had to uninstall some of my apps, then i continued the process of which it installed but didn’t do anything. how do i update the library…..?

    • You should be online to update the library and you need memory space for the apps to run while rooting. Uninstall or move some apps to memory card using AppMgr III and restart the rooting process again.

  9. hello, i’ve tried everything u listed bt it still keeps showing me error 87. i’ve downloaded superUser, i’ve moved d apps to d phone memory, i’ve done everything bt when i press to poot, it still shows me error 87. Looking forward to ur help. N3 user

  10. i’ve done that…it still shows me error code 87 when i press to poot

    • Check to see if you have a Super User installed because you are getting such error because SU binary was not written, simply restart your phone and try once more till you get it right.
