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

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but can anyone here make a copy of the cust partition of the uk ee kestrel with root explorer and upload it for me, it needs to be all the folders and files if possible.

Would really appreciate it.
