One click root tools such as Kingo Root, Frameroot, SRSRoot, etc do not work on the ARCHOS 50 Diamond.  This topic covers a simple method to install root (super-user access) to the ARCHOS 50 Diamond by first loading a custom recovery that will loading SuperSU and get the device rooted. No reset is required and no data should be lost on the phone if this root procedure is followed carefully.

Our method works by booting a temporary image using CWM ClockworkMod recovery on the phone, it will not install permanently the CWM recovery on your phone. Installing CWM recovery permanently is not recommended as it may interfere with future updates on the smartphone that would require the stock recovery.

ARCHOS 50 Diamond root installation procedure

 

1. Install ADB and drivers

 

Please check our ADB topic for the ARCHOS 50 Diamond to download and setup the ADB package and drivers on your computer. 

Connect your smartphone to your computer with the USB cable, make sure the Developer options are enabled and USB debugging is activated on the phone.

On your computer, go to the directory where you have extracted the ADB package binaries and check that ADB and drivers are properly installed by tying the adb devices command on your computer, you should have an output like below (the device serial number should be different)

D:\>adb devices
List of devices attached
D5729A6441004242 device

 

2. Download our boot image with CWM Recovery

Download ARCHOS 50 Diamond CWM 6.0.5.1 image:

kasty-archos_50_diamond_rev094-cwm_6051.zip

 Don't reupload or mirror these files without our permission, please make a link to this topic instead !

 

After downloading the file, unpack the archive and extract it to your computer. It is recommended to extract the .img file in the same directory where you installed and you will run ADB executables or make sure that ADB directory is in your path environment variable.

 

3. Download SuperSU root package and copy it to the 50 Diamond

 

Download SuperSU from Chainfire website
Latest SuperSU is currently version 2.46 (UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip)

Copy the zip file (don't unpack it) to either the root of the smartphone internal storage or the microSD card root directory.

  

4. Put the ARCHOS 50 Diamond in fastboot mode

 

The ARCHOS 50 Diamond comes with an unlocked bootloader, so you can immediately use fastboot on the device without requiring to unlock the device.

If you have a working ADB connection from step 1. you can now reboot to fastboot mode using the following command line:

D:\>adb reboot-bootloader

Your smartphone should reboot and display a screen with ARCHOS logo and will stay on this screen until you issue the fastboot boot command on step 5.

 

To verify you are in fastboot mode, you can then type on your computer command line:

D:\>fastboot devices
2a27142 fastboot

(the displayed device serial number 2a27142 should be different)

 

5. Load CWM recovery boot image

 

You can now load and start the custom recovery to the phone by using the following command line from the directory you unpacked the CWM image on your computer:

D:\>fastboot boot kasty-archos_50_diamond_rev094-cwm_6051.img
  downloading 'boot.img'...
OKAY [ 0.388s]
booting...
OKAY [ 0.104s]
finished. total time: 0.493s

This will load the CWM recovery image just once, the stock recovery will stay installed on your phone and will be available once you have rebooted from the CWM image.

6. Install SuperSU root package thru CWM recovery

 

CWM recovery should now be started on the phone and display as the picture below.

Image Enlarger

CWM navigation can be done thru hardware buttons on the phone, Vol+ moves up, Vol- moves down and Power button validates. You can also use gestures (swipe up or down to navigate up or down, swipe left to right to validate, swipe right to left for back).

You will now locate and install SuperSU package that you copied to the phone microSD card on step 3.

Select "install zip" choice (second item in the first menu), validate.

Image Enlarger

 

If you copied to the microSD card storage, go to "choose zip from /storage/sdcard1/" directory, you should find your SuperSU archive there.

If you copied to the root of the phone local storage, go to "choose zip from /sdcard", then enter the 0/ directory, you should find your SuperSU archive there.

 

Image Enlarger

 

Image Enlarger

 

Image Enlarger

Find the line with the SuperSU archive that you copied on step 3.

Once you selected the SuperSU zip file, you can confirm installation by selecting Yes on the menu. 

Image Enlarger

The recovery will proceed in installing the root on your phone and will return to the menu.

Image Enlarger

You can then go back to main menu and select "reboot system now".

CWM may ask "Root access possibly lost, Fix?", you can answer Yes, but this does not seem mandatory, as answering No should also work as well.

 

6. Reboot and enjoy !

 

After the phone has rebooted, you will find that the ARCHOS 50 Diamond phone is rooted and the SuperSU application is installed to let you control Root access. 

 

Notes and Credits

 

Our package was built for and confirmed to work on an ARCHOS 50 Diamond with both firmware build rev094 and rev107.

This package uses CWM recovery v6.0.5.1 build from vishal_android freak, thanks to him!

jonh06,

You need to run the command just as written, it refers to the image file that you extracted in step2, you I see in your copy/past shows the img file name is not the correct one.

Also, if adb.exe and fastboot.exe aren't in your path, it's probably easier to make sure you have the img file in the same directory that contains the executables.

Cheers.

Hey, i had the same problem, you have to copy the all path of the .img file, probably : C:\adb\kasty-archos_50_diamond_rev094-cwm_6051.img     while typing the "fastboot boot" command 

Hope i've helped, good luck

ARCHOS 50 Diamond new OTA firmware has been released (rev. 107).

After installing this OTA, you will loose root access if you installed it on previous build.

You will need to root again, using the procedure in this topic if you want to keep root (the same root package is compatible for rev094 and rev107).

 

Cheers.
