Default [Q] How to root Huawei U8651T (T-Mobile Prism) / U8651S (T-Mobile Summit)

I was wondering how to root the Huawei U8651T also known as the T-mobile Prism that was recently released.

I've tried using SuperOneClick, but it always freezes on step 7. I've also tried manually applying the zergRush exploit, but it seems to have been patched either on my phone or just Android 2.3.6.

Is it possible to root this phone using the same method as for Huawei U8650 Sonic?

Thanks

Thumbs up Wind Mobile - Huawei u8651t Root and Huawei Sonic CM7.2

The step below works perfectly but I forgot to do a backup of the original Wind Stock Rom in recovery. Could someone please post the Windmobile ROM? Thanks.

Huawei (Astro/Prism) u8651t has the same hardware as Huawei (Sonic) u8650. So the Sonic Rom will work on the Astro/Prism phone.

-------------------------------------

Step 1: google -> crazypig u8651t rom
Step 2: download the CWrevovery and CyanogenMod 7.2 STABLE (2.3.7) 16-06-2012
Step 3: Follow the instruction below

down load CW revober first: CWRevovery

1.Trun off your U8651t and take out the battery
2.Put back your battery, and when you trun it on.Hold on Vol.- and power button
3.connect your U8651t to your computer
4.running Recovery.bat from the files you donwload, when it finshed, U8651t will reboot.
5.Flash any rooted Rom

your can download this Rom CyanogenMod 7.2 STABLE (2.3.7) 16-06-2012

Unhappy Tmobile Prism (u8651T ) dont boot after CM7

Ok, so i read this

and install sucesfully the CW recovery
so i copied CyanogenMod 7.2 STABLE (2.3.7) . zip

and flashed with the menu on CW
all went fine until that point, when i reboot the phone
i get a white tmobile screen with the logo ( as normal boot before the flash )
then i get the moving CyanogenMod moving logo
after that i get black screen.... no LED.... nothing... just that ( i can see the screen active with a little glow.... but nothing... just lala land for the phone

i need to remove the the battery to make it boot again... but same cycle
after the CyanogenMod screen.... black....

now i got a paper weight...
any ideas ?

-------------------------------------------- EDIT
ohhhhh it works now, i wiped off the caches, and user data and it booted now !!!!
sorry for the rant...

I really didn't see where attitude is called for but. Everyone is big on the keyboard.
Either way, maybe your day will get better.

Have a good one.
