Huawei Ascend y (h866c) Root?
I've been trying to find a functional root method for this phone which has been out since October, no luck. Tried all the methods for the Ascend II (m865) hoping that it would be close enough... Alas, it wasn't. Any ideas out there?

RE: Huawei Ascend y (h866c) Root?
here is what i know!

adb root = adbd cannot run as root in production builds

why throw and error adbd?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
adb shell
$
$chmod 777 /system

returns error Unable to chmod /system: Read-only file system
__________________________________________________ _____________

so lets change the entire root to 777 well that turns out to be the same error!
__________________________________________________ _____________

so i start looking at packages! by typing

adb shell

$ pm list permission-groups
pm list permission-groups
permission group:android.permission-group.DEVELOPMENT_TOOLS
permission group:android.permission-group.PERSONAL_INFO
permission group:android.permission-group.COST_MONEY
permission group:android.permission-group.LOCATION
permission group:android.permission-group.MESSAGES
permission group:android.permission-group.NETWORK
permission group:android.permission-group.ACCOUNTS
permission group:android.permission-group.STORAGE
permission group:android.permission-group.PHONE_CALLS
permission group:android.permission-group.HARDWARE_CONTROLS
permission group:android.permission-group.SYSTEM_TOOLS

it returns this! i can view packages etc and sub packages etc. but can't change the permissions on those packages! so i try installing this method!

pm install superuser.apk /system/app
pm install superuser.apk /system/app
pkg: superuser.apk
returns
Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_INSUFFICIENT_STORAGE]

OK now that i have seen this before on the phone downloading an app or playing a game this is getting funny now!

the only thing i can think of to do next is find a verified copy of a update.zip the huawei h866c will except.
I also noticed that with the sim card out it shows a cdrom drive and 2 usb drives which tells me there are multiple partitions on this phone. well there might be a partition hiding somewhere that we can't see. I also downloaded a very good root explorer app and /local is not showing as well as items in /dev?
so anyone want to share some knowledge maybe i can piece this together.
I'm have a little knowledge on MD5 but not alot about creating a verified update.zip..

Re: Huawei Ascend y (h866c) Root?
Do a hard reset before u try installing superuser. The phone does have a really small internal storage


Also try the huawei mercury root method

the huawei mercury root will probably be the one they both have pink screens. i have it almost rooted except for the part where is requires a linux distro with nautilus. then its supposed to be done im sure itll be very easy from where i am just having trouble installing a machine ..
