Angry [Huawei IDEOS U8150] How to gain root access

I hold no responsibility to how you use or not use this info and if you brick phone - you do this at your own risk

There is a couple away you can go about gaining root access with this phone I have tested all 3 ways but only had success with 2 of them.

a) You can download 'z4root' from the Android Market (If is still available) or search XDA forums for it.
b) Search the XDA forums for 'SuperOneClick' which requires mono to work on Linux. I have read people that have had success with 'SuperOneClick' but that was not the case for me.

c) My preferred method:
Prerequisite:
knowledge of Linux and Terminal
knowledge of ADB (guide available in forums)

I did all this using Debian (testing) 64bit, Android SDK.

Creating correct permissions to access the phone via USB:
i) create
Code:
Select Code
/etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
ii) in the file put
Code:
Select Code
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="12d1", MODE="0666"
iii) then
Code:
Select Code
chmod a+r /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
iv) restart udev or reboot

Downloading and/or Installing required software:
1) Downloading and installing the android-sdk from: developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
2) Downloading and extracting 'SuperOneClick' (you will only need these 5 files: rageagainstthecage, sqlite3, su, busybox and superuser.apk)
3) Copy rageagainstthecage, sqlite3, su, busybox and superuser.apk into the platform-tools directory of android-sdk. Put phone in debug mode.
4) From a terminal (command line) change to the android/platform-tools directory and carefully do these steps.

Check to see if adb can see your phone properly:
Code:
Select Code
./adb devices
You should see the serial number of you device, if you see bunch of '?' you have done something wrong.

Now for the fun part rooting the phone: <= no phun intended hehe
Code:
Select Code
./adb push rageagainstthecage /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
Code:
Select Code
./adb shell
Code:
Select Code
cd /data/local/tmp
Code:
Select Code
chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage
Code:
Select Code
./rageagainstthecage
5) Now wait until you get kicked out from adb before you do the following:
Code:
Select Code
./adb shell
If everything worked now you should see a "#" instead of the "$" you saw previously in the adb shell which means you shouldn't get "permission denied" in the following steps:
Code:
Select Code
mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mdtblock4 /system
Code:
Select Code
exit
Code:
Select Code
./adb push su /system/bin/su
Code:
Select Code
./adb push busybox /system/bin/busybox
Code:
Select Code
./adb push sqlite3 /system/bin/sqlite3
Code:
Select Code
./adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
Code:
Select Code
./adb shell
Code:
Select Code
cd /system/bin
Code:
Select Code
chmod 4755 su
Code:
Select Code
chmod 4755 busybox
Code:
Select Code
chmod 4755 sqlite3
Code:
Select Code
./adb reboot
Now you should be able to use apps like 'Cache Cleaner NG', 'Root Explorer', 'SetCPU' etc that require root access to work correctly.

Guide reflash FW for those who did some damage:

* Download from here that you want to install the FW
* Copy the folder in the microSD DLOAD (with the file inside UPADATE.APP)
* From phone off, Volume + Hold down RED BUTTON UP and power button.
* start the firmware upgrade, take a few minutes and then restart the phone . is a bit slow, do not be afraid, let him work and then back on (like the first time)



Help to get into recovery mode:

* down the 'volume up 'and 'green button'and then switch the device




Guide to bootloader mode:

* switch off, press and hold power button + volume down + red key

I think only "su" should be 4755 (setuid root), busybox and sqlite3 should just be 0755? Thanks for the instructions.
