recently acquired this phone & looking for some clarification.

is unlocking the devices bootloader required, prior to using towelroot?

is network unlocking unrelated to root success?

I had success msg via towelroot - but in actuality it failed (I was certain to not to upgrade device software).

thanks for any assistance.

IROOT and Kestrel

I have just come across this video on rooting an EE Kestrel the link also take you to a page where it shows you how to unlock the phone. Has anyone tried this?

I am a total noob and really am unsure about what and if I should do this, it does look straight forward though!

Ideally I would like to unbrand the phone and have a better icon set on my phone.

What Theme do you have and do I need to root the phone to do this?

Sorry for the dumb questions
