Smile [Q] Huawei G700-u20 - Root/custom rom help needed

Hi guys!

Great forum. Goot my first Android device ever yesterday: Huawei G700-U20. I would like to root it and add a Custom rom (KitKat 4.4).

Got some problems in the first stage tough: installed Framaroot (and my phone is supposed to be supported according to the list), but when opening the app it says: "Your device seems not vulnerable to exploit included in Framaroot"

What am I doing wrong?

It this the only opportunity to root the phone? As you can see - I'm very unexperienced, so please bear with me

But if I root it and use custom rom, I should be able to get it - no?

There is No custom KitKat ROM for the G700 series. We will need to wait.
1) HP iPaq rx1950
2) HTC GENE (P3400i)
3) HTC Touch Pro T7272 Raphael
4) WickedLeak Wammy Passion Z+
5) HTC Desire V
6) Huawei G700

Rooting Huawei is not the problem, you can do it very easily with the help of farmaroot app with out any PC.

But the real question is whether we have any good advantage of rooting this mobile if there is no custom ROM or any other type of update available in the market, than what is the best use of rooting and cracking your warranty.

He was asking if there was other options to root the phone other than framaroot, so I just told him one other option

On the other side, yes its true that there are no custom roms for the U20. But that is not the only reason for rooting a phone since there are several apps that do require a rooted device.
