Hi, I've successfully rooted my phone. I have a Huawei Y200.it might be easier if you waited for OneClickRoot do be launched maybe they have the device listed for auto flashing that does everything for you.
OneClickRoot: ==> I can't post links sorry
..New User, please search on internet..
But anyway, here's the batch file I think I uploaded it..
So its easy once you root it, but WARNING: DO NOT INSTALL CLOCKWORK MODE AGAIN THROUGH ROM Manager OR ANY SOURCE. (this might bring you into bootloop)
follow steps to use the batch file...
1- You need to do this on your phone: Allow USB Debugging and STAY AWAKE Function, STOP fastboot mode. Now Install ADB Drivers when connecting phone into computer via usb and debugging mode is on (you'll see a drive usually green on your computer, check for "drivers" inside driver folders and install windows drivers.
2- You need to install Android SDK : ==> New User, Can't post links, Search Android SDK..
navigate to default download location: " C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools ", shift + right click inside the folder with nothing selected, and run command prompt from there. run following command "adb devices" and it should list a device number.
3- Now exctract the zip file in attachement and run these in order: -"adb.exe" then -"fastboot.exe" then -"root_v5.2.bat". It should say a succesfull message and ( as i remember) phone should reboot (if it states "reboot phone now" in cmd prompt). now you shoudl be rooted and see "SuperUser" application installed.
4- Check if you're properly rooted with a "rootchecker" market app. If App requested root access by SuperUser (ofcourse you'll tap Accept right?) and says you have proper root, you can now jump around and scream " I rooted my phone" like i did... You can now Install Link2sd app and enjoy free enternal storage since you've rooted your phone... Any Directions using Link2sd repost or you can search internet... One limitation is you can'r use swap (to increase your RAM ), and have to go through different ROM's. If rooted your phone succesfully please inform and on any questions about ROM switching...
