to ROOT Huawei Ascend y200 (u8655)

Recommended Posts

to root the Y200 you buy in Australia. (and other international english versions) (probably all versions) works 100%. cant garuntee any other country, but this information is a mixture of badly translated instructions in a few different countries

 

1. turn off "fast boot" in "applications" menu in settings

 

2. turn on "USB debugging" in "Development" in "Applications " in settings

 

download

and put it on your root SD card directory

 

download on a WINDOWS computer

and unzip file into a new folder

 

RUN THE INSTALL adb EXE FILE

 

when u have run the install adb exe , plug in ur phone to computer & a new drive will appear in my computer. install the adb program files choosing either win 7 or XP (2 choices)

 

HAVE THE Rootv5.2.bat FILE from zip ready to run on computer

 

turn off phone. remove battery for 5 seconds .

 

now we will change to custom recovery mode.

 

replace battery, plug in via usb to computer & hold "volume up" & power button on at same time until logo appears on screen

 

release up vol & power button & then immediately press "volume down & power button & hold until logo freezes / stays on screen / doesnt progress beyond the logo

(you may to continually hold power button and only swap between vol up & vol down as alternative)

 

run the BAT file from the root zip file u extracted

 

wait for 10 15 seconds, then press RETURN .... will say stuff, then pause press RETURN again, repeat once more. it should say finished (hopefully) (or similar)

 

now u have mod recovery mode.

 

make sure u copied the Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip file u downloaded above to the root directory of ur SD card.

 

turn phone off.

 

remove battery for 5 - 10 secs.

 

replace battery. hold Volume up button & power button on for 15 seconds (or until a text menu appears)

 

navigate menu with vol up & vol down keys , power button selects.

select install zip file from sd card.

select Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip .

 

will run script for very short time & display success message.

 

now your phone is rooted.

 

recommend titanium backup for all software install, installs bloatware etc.

if any system apps wont remove (gives error) BLOATWARE FREEZER should work.

 

enjoy

Hey, thanks very much for the guide man! This worked for me with a Huawei Ascend Y201 I bought from Tesco in Ireland.

The only thing that gave me an issue was this instruction:

 

 

replace battery, plug in via usb to computer & hold "volume up" & power button on at same time until logo appears on screen

 

release up vol & power button & then immediately press "volume down & power button & hold until logo freezes / stays on screen / doesnt progress beyond the logo

(you may to continually hold power button and only swap between vol up & vol down as alternative)

 

Reading this, I thought you meant connect it to the PC, and then turn it on using "Volume Up + Power". That didn't work, so what I did instead was:

1. Replace battery

2. Hold "Volume down + Power" for about 15seconds, the white Huawei Ascend text you get when the phone turns on should then stay frozen on the screen.

3. Now connect the phone to the PC via USB. The PC will say something like "ADB Sooner driver installed" or something. Great.

 

The rest of your instructions were great though. Thanks again!

Thank you, but I can´t se any "INSTALL adb" in the zip-file?

 

Best regards

I think it's just called adb.exe.
