I'm not responsible if your phone blows up, bricks, you travel back in time or go bald or something!
I have the MT2-L05 Mate 2 from China.
When I received my Mate 2 last Thursday, the phone was on 4.2.2
After much hunting and downloading and flashing of ROMS, I managed to finally update to 4.4.2 KitKat.
Great ! I was happy. But I didn't have root access.
After trying and failing to use the various bootloader unlock tools on these forums, I Emailed Huawei, and politely asked them if I could have the 16 digit code for my Mate 2. An hour later an Email arrived with my bootloader unlock code, so I fastbooted, used the code and unlocked the Bootloader.....Cool ! Thanks Huawei, great customer service.
I then went to root my phone, and here the problems started. I tried at least 20 different Root tools, both via phone and over the pc, but no joy.
Nothing worked ! Vroot, Kingoroot, Towelroot, srs root, root genius 1.8.7, etc they all failed.
I was at the point of giving up, when I found a Chinese version of rootgenius 18.104.22.168......I ran it via pc........and Success ! I was finally rooted.
Supersu was installed, the binaries updated fine and all was good with the world. I tried wakelock detector first ( Yeah, I know, I REALLY need more battery life from the Mate 2 ! ), and Supersu asked for permission and it worked no problem.
I then tried to install adaway, and then I ran into problems, I was unable to edit my hosts file....ummm...odd. OK, then I tried to install xposed......Impossible to install.
I then read on these forums to edit build.prop and change a simple setting to get xposed running.......ok, no problem, yet when I edited my build.prop file, it would NEVER EVER save the edits. Weird? what's going on?.......after much searching and much reading I finally found the problem.................
