One major issue users face when using recent devices is the difficulty in rooting, due to increased security level on latter android versions. Gionee M6 is one of those stubborn device, but finally rooting Gionee M6 and installing TWRP is now possible. Trust me, nothing is impossible in the tech world that’s why iPhones can be jailbreaked even after all it’s security features.
Gionee M6 (e.g M6_0103_V5506) is powered by the MT6755 (Mediatek Helio P10) SoC and runs on Android 6 (Marshmallow). The phone has a private space feature that is highly encrypted and can be locked with the owners fingerprint; making it almost impossible for another person to unlock or view what is inside.
