WE ARE ROOTED!!!
Okay, we have successfully found root for the Kyocera Echo (We have reached our goal folks!!!) So here is the Root method!



DISCLAIMER: This has to be done correctly, or you will have to reset your phone in order to run the Exploit again! Follow all instructions below please.



Credits:

All credits go to zergRush of XDA, Saridnour for his dedicated work to H.T.E. (Which will soon be Hear OUR Echo), and all who tested this to confirm its functionality and show me the proper way to do it!



A little Information:

I will be using my directory to my SDK folder for this tutorial (C:\sdk\tools) but whatever your directory is to SDK is what you will use.



Things you will need:

Android SDK (already set up)

A Kyocera Echo (duh!)

zergRush (XDA root exploit)



Root method:

1. Download zergRush and put the file (not the zip) in your tools folder of sdk

Open your CMD promt, then redirect to SDK (just type exactly what I type after you're in SDK)



(cd c:\sdk\tools) <-- SDK redirect

adb shell rm -r /data/local/temp/*

adb push zergRush /data/local/temp/zergRush

adb shell

chmod 755 /data/local/temp/zergRush

/data/local/zergRush



then you should see this:

[**] Zerg rush - Android 2.2/2.3 local root [**] (C) 2011 Revolutionary. All rights reserved. [**] Parts of code from Gingerbreak, (C) 2010-2011 The Android Exploid Crew. [+] Found a GingerBread ! 0x00017118[*] Sending 149 zerglings ...[*] Trying a new path ...[*] Sending 149 zerglings ...[*] Trying a new path ...[*] Sending 149 zerglings ...[*] Trying a new path ...[*] Sending 149 zerglings ... [+] Zerglings caused crash (good news): 0x401219c4 0x0054[*] Researching Metabolic Boost ... [+] Speedlings on the go ! 0xafd260a9 0xafd39f9f[*] Poping 24 more zerglings[*] Sending 173 zerglings ... [+] Rush did it ! It's a GG, man !
[+] Killing ADB and restarting as root..enjoy!

3. Afterwards, you will have to manually push SuperUser and Busybox (DO NOT UNPLUG THE PHONE)

find the SU and Busybox files here

Then, ADB push them with these commands:

Type: adb push GingerBreak /data/local/tmp/GingerBreak

Type: adb push Superuser.apk /data/local/tmp/Superuser.apk

Type: adb push su /data/local/tmp/su

Type: adb push busybox /data/local/tmp/busybox



AND THERE YOU HAVE IT, YOUR PHONE IS NOW ROOTED. HAVE FUN MODDING AND DOING WHATEVER ELSE. AS SOON AS SARIDNOUR AND H.T.E. COME OUT WITH THE RECOVERY, WE ARE ON TO CUSTOM ROMS!!!!



Thanks for supporting us this whole time,

BFG SgtRecon

There is also a one-touch method that is easy to use and free. Just go to the forums at heartheecho.webs.com. Register for free, and the software and instructions are easy to find in the Tutorials section of the forums.
