How To Root Kyocera Rise v4.0.4 and Kyocera Hydro v4.0.4
No PC Required

This is the procedure on how to root your Kyocera Rise v4.0.4. After many on-line searches, I was able to determine there was no concrete tutorial on how to root Kyocera Rise v4.0.4. In order to reduce frustration for others who may have experienced the same situation, I came up with this tutorial. I did not create any of the apps provided in this tutorial, I was just able to utilize the apps which where already on-line. Verified this tutorial also works for Kyocera Hydro v4.0.4.

****This tutorial may also work for other Kyocera phones****.


IMPORTANT: Any changes you make to your phone can potentially damage the phone, if done incorrectly. Under no circumstances am I responsible for any changes you make, which damage your phone. Please understand you are making these changes at YOUR OWN RISK!


Please follow the steps below exactly as described. I strongly recommend reading the entire tutorial before beginning to root your Kyocera Rise v4.0.4 Or Kyocera Hydro v4.0.4.

1. Plug your phone into the charger. Once that is completed, go to Settings → Developer Options and enable “Stay Awake” by putting a check in the box. This will prevent the phone from sleeping while you apply the changes.

2. Put your phone in Debug Mode by going to Setting → Developer Options and enabling “USB Debugging” by putting a check in the box.

3. Go to Setting → Security and enable “Unknown Sources” by putting a check in the box. This will allow the apps in this tutorial to work correctly.

4. Open Google Play, search for “ES File Explorer (1.5 Cupcake)” by ES App Group. {Link} Make sure your download the correct version specifically named “ES File Explorer (1.5 Cupcake)”.

5. Download the "Ministro II v9.4.apk" from {App located at the end of this Tutorial}. The correct version is very important.

6. Once you have downloaded "Ministro II v9.4 apk" to your phone it will be saved to your “Download” folder on your SDcard. Open “ES File Explorer (1.5 Cupcake)” and navigate to the “Download” folder on your SDcard. Click on the “Ministro II v9.4 apk” and install it. You may receive a notification telling you there are new Ministro II files in the repository. Do NOT update from the notification. Update will happen in the next few steps.
(Google Play - Ministro II versions 9.5+ do not work well with Poot.)
7. Download “Poot-debug(W100).apk” by GiantPune from {App located at the end of this Tutorial}. There are a few different versions of the Poot app. But they are not located in Google Play. It seems this version “Poot-debug(W100).apk” works well with the Kyocera. The correct version is very important.

8. Once you have downloaded “Poot-debug(W100).apk” to your phone it will be saved to your “Download” folder on your SDcard. Open “ES File Explorer (1.5 Cupcake)” and navigate to the “Download” folder on your SDcard. Click on the “Poot-debug(W100).apk” and install it.

9. Once it has completed installation, click “Open”. You will immediately get a Message from “Ministro II” stating “Poot needs extra libraries to run. Do you want to download them now?” Click “OK” to begin downloading the libraries. Please let “Ministro II” finish downloading the libraries before continuing. Note: The download speed of the libraries will depend on whether you are connected to Wifi or 3G. Please be patient and let “Ministro II” complete the download.

************************************************** ******
  • Import - If you receive an error stating "Invalid QT Version" while completing STEP # 8, Please delete Poot and Ministro 2 from your device.
  • Once those two files are deleted please download the files named "Ministro II-QtFix.apk" and "Poot-debug-QtFix.apk" from the end of this tutorial.
  • After downloading the two files named "Ministro II-QtFix.apk" and "Poot-debug-QtFix.apk", install them but do NOT open them.
  • Once the 2 files have been installed continue from STEP # 8.

************************************************** *******

10. Once the download has been completed the Poot Application will appear with 2 options. Please click on “Press here to Poot”. Once you click the button, the white space on the “Poot” application should state the following:

[+] I think root, therefore I am root
Write SUBinary()
[+] remounted /system read-write
[+] wrote SUBinary
[+] changed SUBinary to vid 0, gid 0 mode 6755
[+] remounted /system read-only
[+] removed hook
[-] current && current != last+1: 0000ffff
0000ffff
[-] Haxx has run its course.
Reboot the device to play again

A demon materialized while pooting. Error code 64
You need to restart your device.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT REBOOT YOUR DEVICE UNTIL THIS TUTORIAL TELLS YOU SPECIFICALLY TO REBOOT YOUR DEVICE!!!


11. Before restarting your device continue with the tutorial. Open Google Play. Download “SuperUser” by ChainsDD from Google Play {Link}. Install “SuperUser” then click open when the installation has completed. Swipe to the left until you see the “Info” section. Look for the section labeled “SUBinary”. Under that section verify you have the “SU Binary version 3.03.2(15)”. Then disable the “outdated binary notification” by removing the check from the box.


************************************************** ************************************************** ************************************************** *********

12. Open “ES File Explorer (1.5 Cupcake)” that you previously downloaded in this tutorial. Press the menu button on the Kyocera Rise to view the app's options and click on “setting”. Scroll down until you see the section called “Root Setting”. Enable the “Root Explorer” by putting a check in the box. “ES File Explorer (1.5 Cupcake)” will produce a message at this point, click “Yes”. The “SuperUser” app will appear asking you to grant “SuperUser” rights for “ES File Explorer (1.5 Cupcake)”. Click allow and make sure the “Always Remember” box is checked. It should be checked by default, but please verify.

13. Under the same section in “ES File Explorer (1.5 Cupcake)” named “Root Setting”, there is an option called “Mount File System”. Please enable “Mount File System” by placing a check in the box next to this option. You should get a message stating “System is mounted as writable”.


IMPORTANT Note: If you get an error while trying to complete steps 11 and 12, you did not complete the steps correctly in this tutorial. You must un-install all the apps and begin the process again.

************************************************** ************************************************** ************************************************** *********

14. Download and install “Root Checker” by JOEYKRIM from Google Play {Link}. Once the installation has been completed click open. Inside the “Root Checker” app click on the button which states “Verify Root”. If all the steps were completed correctly, the following message will appear in green text “Congratulations! You have Root Access.”

15. Final Test of Root. Reboot your phone and wait until it completes rebooting. Open “Root Checker” app, click on the button which states “Verify Root”. If you see the message in green text “Congratulations! You have Root Access.”. You are done rooting!



A few suggestions after Rooting...

1. You will need to install “Busy Box” in order for some Root applications to work properly. “Busy Box” can be found by searching Google Play for the term “Busy Box”. There are a few different version created by different developers. Pick which ever one you prefer.

2. Before doing anything else to your device, download “Titanium Backup * Root” {Link}. Make sure you create a back up with this app, just in case anything goes wrong after Rooting.

3. There are no custom ROMs for the Kyocera Rise at this time. You can download “Rom Toolbox Lite” by JRummy {Link} to change some features on your phone. The “Pro” version is even better if you like the “Lite” features. I recommend starting with the “Boot Animations” since there are some really good Boot Animations in this tool.
Note: At this time you are unable to change the “Status Bar” color and icons. The ROM needs to needs to be de-oxeded before this can be completed.

4. Another good app that will make a significant improvement on your phone is “PimpMyRom” {Link}. I recommend activating the “Universal Init.d Support” under tools and Setting the “Wifi Scan Interval” higher under “Tweaks” Inside “Network & Internet”. The “Wifi” change will show a significant change in download speed.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Some of the features will cause the app to close. This means those features do not work on the Kyocera Rise. DO NOT INSTALL ANYTHING FROM THE “APPS & MODS” Section of “PimpMyROM”. THIS WILL DAMAGE YOUR PHONE. You can test the “APPS & MODS” features at YOUR OWN RISK!

5. You may also want to look for a new launcher to customize your device. You can try “Nova Launcher” or “ADW Launcher”. They each have many custom themes and can all be located in Google Play.

6.You may also want to download and install a “Terminal” App if you are interested in learning or applying commands. There are a few different terminal apps located in Google Play, just use the search term “Terminal”. Please select the one you prefer or test a few.

7. My next suggestion is, that you can install Playstation Mobile on the Kyocera Rise v4.0.4 by following the instruction in this {Link} from another XDA member. His instructions are accurate. Please follow the instructions on how to manually install PSM. The manual installation worked for me.

8. Xposed framework works on these devices. Xf has many features you can use which are similar to custom ROMs. I suggest doing a web search for "Xposed Framework". There are plenty of tutorials explaing how to use and install Xf.

9. Keep in mind these are only suggestions on what to do after your phone is rooted.

Enjoy your Rooted, Kyocera Rise v4.0.4 and/or Kyocera Hydro v4.0.4 !

Thumbs up Great Tutorial That Works...
Thank You to the Author of this Tutorial. This worked the very first time I did it. Even though i installed the wrong ES File Explorer Version, after installing the Correct one {ES File Explorer 1.5 Cupcate}, everything fell into place.
To others following the Tutorial, listen to the Author at the end of the Tutorial's section "A Few suggestions after Rooting..." Step 2 is key... Install the Titanium Backup and run the backup before adding more stuff after your device has Root Capability. That way you don't have to Redo the Tutorial again on your Device if something goes wrong in the future with installing Root required Apps.

Although when trying to use ROM Manager v5.5.2.8 (I downloaded this myself by the way), it's telling me i must have ClockworkMod Recovery Installed before I can Backup My current ROM. My Device is a Kycoera C5155. I'm sure they'll make one soon for my device. Or i'll find another ROM backup tool out on the App Store.

Thanks Again to the Author. Bravo

I appreciate the positive feedback. Right now no one has figured out how to unlock the bootloader for the Rise. Therefore no CWM versions can be applied and/or tested.
Sooner or later someone will unlock it

Can you please verify you are have downloaded Ministro 2 and NOT Ministro 1?

Please also verify you are connected to the internet via 3g or Wi-Fi. And you have a strong connection.

Yes I am sure it is Ministro 2, also the connection is Wifi and it is working very fast. I also downloaded Ministro 2 Configuration Panel and set to testing repo. as mentioned in some other link when I searched for this error but still the same problem. I can see in logcat that Ministro 2 is going to the correct url (I can't post the url here bec I am still new) and then produce an error then crashes and go back to Poot which shows "Invalid Qt version".

I even tried Ministro 1 and it didn't work at all.

Thanks for your help.

OK, please follow these steps...
1. Uninstall Ministro 1, Ministro 2, and Ministro Config Panel.
2. Go To Setting - Developer Options - and verify "USB Debugging" and "Stay Awake" are checked.
3. Download ONLY "Ministro 2" from google play.
4. Once Ministro 2 has been installed plug your phone into the charger.
5. Run Poot again and it will download the correct libraries.

The problem can be cause by a few things... If your phone screen locks during the download it may also shut-off your wi-fi. This is why I had you check off "stay awake" and plug your phone into the charger. The config panel and version 1 of Ministro will cause problems which is why I had you remove them.
One other situation I noticed will cause the error you are encountering is the incorrect version of Poot. I am assuming you copied the version of Poot attached to the tutorial so I am ruling that error out.

Please let me know how you make out with the changes I suggested.
