Recently, I was looking for a root method for Doogee F5 Phablet, tried all rooting app, no avail. Thanks to MushroomLT for providing us with this root script.

Before you proceed, make sure that you’ve enabled USB debugging on your Doogee F5 phablet. To enable, go to settings >> scroll down to “About Phone” >> Build number (simply tab build number 7times and you’ll get a message that says “You’re now a developer”). Now go back to settings menu >> developers option >> then enable USB debugging, as seen in the image below.

Step 11: After running the rootbat, and it gets successful, simply disconnect your device, use the above proceed from Step 5-9 to flash the stock_boot.img, don’t forget to delete the ins_boot.img, which you renamed before and then rename stock_boot.img to boot.img, locate same scattered file and flash.
