Hi guys, this is my first tut here, about an alternative way for rooting my S6500D...

Q : Why do I need this? There is a better and easy way already using CWM....
A : This tut will only give you root access, without a busybox, CWM, etc. If you want Root+BB+CWM, please follow an other TUTs.

Okey, Here we go...

This TUT is based on "poot" exploit created by giantpune from androidforums.com (We should thanks him/her)
He/She create this exploit for LG Optimus Elite originally, but mod it to work for several phone model.
He said that this exploit will work on android version 2.3.5 - 2.3.7. Thats why I try this on Jena

Giantpune from androidforums, posted original application and some modded apk to work with other phone.
To respect his work and his thread, I only attached a working apk that root my Mini 2.
And provide his thread's link, so you can download all poot apks from there, thanks him and his team, and maybe donating him.

Here is the link : http://androidforums.com/elite-all-t...-root-apk.html

Requirement :
- poot-debug.apk for h866c (Huawei ascend Y). I tried another version, but fail.
- Ministro II. You can download it from Playstore.
- Please remove your SD card.

Step by step :

1. Install Ministro II from Play Store.

2. Install poot-debug.apk for h866c. I already attached it.

3. Create Poot shortcut to Home.

4. Turn on USB Debugging in the Settings>Application>Developement

5. Open Poot, it will request to download some Ministro library. This library needed by poot to work. You will need an internet connection.

6. After all library downloaded, close Poot. Its better to reboot our phone first.

7. Let the phone boot completely. If you have much app installed, kill all running app, so nothing can interrupt this exploit.

8. Open Poot, tap "Press Here to Poot" button.

- If the phone reboot suddenly, try again this step.
- If Poot app show an error log, like error : 87 or 22, reboot your phone and try again.
- If it still fail, try to reboot your phone. When lockscreen showed up, immediately unlock it while system scanning storage. Open Poot quickly (thats why I want you to put a shortcut in home). Then tap "Press Here to Poot".

9. If Poot show log like "successfully push su file to /system/xbin...bla..bla...bla", then you have successfully rooted your phone.

10. After a successful poot, Poot will show 3 option:

- Get Superuser = it will open Play Store straightly to Superuser by ChainsDD page. Install it to manage root access.
- Get Root Checker Basic = it will open Play Store to Root Checker Basic page. If you want to check root access using this app, download it.
- Built-in Root Checker = Instead of download Root Checker Basic, you can use this built in feature.

11. After Superuser installed, dont forget to update su binary file from it.

12. Its done!!! now you have a rooted Mini 2.

Note: I have tested original poot for LG Optimus Elite, Cherry W100, and PCD Venture without success. If your phone can not be rooted with poot for h866c, I advice you to try another versions.

The advantage of this method :
- This method of rooting will not increase your custom bin, because you dont need to flash CWM.
- You dont need a PC to root Jena.

Disadvantage :
- You need to install/download Superuser by ChainsDD + BusyBox manually. This exploit only push su file (Superuser's su file by ChainDD) to /system/xbin.

Note: If you want to flash CWM, we need to wait mobile Odin compatible with our device. Therefore, if you want CWM very badly...I suggest you to flash it using PC.

Credits:
- giantpune from androidforums.com, who made the exploit.
- me, who try and test this exploit on Jena all night long

PM me, if someone should be listed on Credits

Thanks man

Yup, triangle away worked as you said. But I never try it yet tho. I bought a new Jena 1month ago, and I dont want to loose my warranty.
Thats why I search another way to root safely, without worries

Maybe this tuts dedicated for someone like me, who didnt have a PC or notebook yet.

Well that's something new. Portable rooting where you're in a car without CWM?
In all seriousness, it's great to see great things show up for our Jena, like this and MIUI, and TWRP, and CM 10, and OC Kernels, and many other stuff.
It's you people who make this phone awesome.
I have a question, is the "su" binary the latest one?

Yup, we hope Jena community will grow up like mini I

No, it is not. We need to update it to the latest version, after Superuser installed.

Iam still figuring out how to migrate to CWM superuser tho. Its Open Source, and looks like better security.

BusyBox can be installed downloading Busybox installer from play store
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ricson.busybox

and maybe CWM can be installed with mobile odin (i don't know)

i am saying this because I am an admin of a spanish blog and many people ask us for a way to root and install CWM without PC,

Maybe I miss spelling something...
Or you dont understand what I mean

I mean superuser.apk by clockworkmod, or koush's superuser.
If I want CWM, I will not root using this method

Yup, thats busybox installer that I mean

I was only thinking in a way to install CWM for users that don't have PC. I am a admin of a Spanish blog and many people want it.
And in sOme other devices ROM MANAGER can install CWM. maybe it's possible with mobile Odin or rom manager, I guess

Rom Manager can brick the mini 2, because it's not compatible with mini 2 I think.

Yup, i heard that rom manager can brick mini 2.

My best bet is mobile odin.
It is compatible with ace plus.
And mini 2 almost the same with ace plus.
