How to root Lenovo P770 ?

Hello,  i have bought the new Phone Lenovo P770 with 3500 Battery , commes with Jeally bean , its amazing !!   the installed Lenovo Stor is too bad !! my problem is only Google play doesnt work und i have read Mobile schould be rooted first . is it right ?   How could i root it , im not an expert ! i want only google play on my Phone   Kind Regards from Germany   Osman  		

                			I think all is ok now ...     for who wants to know the procedure:     - download SP Flash Tool version 1.5     - download CWM 6 on YDSS BBS forum (warning: it is in chinese language - after installation need to move and confirm with virtual chinese key)     - flash only recovery (CWM) with SP Flash Tool as common guide    - download root file on lenovo russian forum, unzip it  and copy Root by Javum.ZIP  to SD     - Enter in CWM and choose "install ZIP from SD" ...then choose Root by Javum    root done!!!   		

                			I tried this but I cannot complete the Flash    It just errors with the message "DA partial images download is ONLY allowed under the following prerequisite: 1. All images have been download ed to the target before and could boot up 2. The images layout map on the target is the same as the load that is to be downloaded"    help please?  		

                			Use only chinese recovery you can download from mobileuncletools forum.  Then use rootbyjavum included in zip file you can download from russian lenovo forum. Don't use recovery included in zip file, it don't work.  Sent from my Lenovo P770 using xda app-developers app  		

                			Can you please post the links, especially the link for CWM 6 on YDSS BBS? Everything on the page is in Chinese and I can't understand a word. The rest is no problem.  		

             I successfully got CWM and rooted my P770. The only problem that i have is the google map, I can't get my position in door. No idea why I can't flash GAPP directly through CWM, once I did it, it will only boot into CWM not android system, good luck.     Update: I put the MTK6577 driver and flash utility (with recovery) and root files here, you can download them if you need:    driver:  utility:  Root: (Use CWM to flash!)  		

                			  			    			Hi, I try to root this phone and I'm stuck. Can you help me?    I flashed the preloader and recovery into the phone using SPF.... Or at least I think I did. When I enter to "factory menu", there are few (I think six) options, labeled only by chinese "spilled tea". In one options are besieds chienes letter letters e MMC.    Maybye I missed something, but I cant get any further. Can you help me what I do wrong?    Thanks much,  Matyas
