Go to android forums dot com and then go to this board >

Android Forums > Android Phones > Huawei Premia 4G > Premia 4G - All Things Root

There's a guide by shabbypenguin. I posted the necessary drivers to connect ADB as well.


I'd link you but apparently I'm a n00b lol

I used the method described in this thread. It seems like it worked partially as most of my root apps work however I can not modify system files I am still stuck with read only permission in certain directories. Has anyone else had this problem and is there a current fix. Thank you for your help in advance
