Seeing as this device does not yet have it's own Android device forum, and may not given the relative lack of popularity, I am posting this here - and hope it is of some use to you.

What you need:

Steps:
  1. Dial * # * # 2846579 # * # *
  2. Go to projectmenu, background settings, log settings, log switch and set Log on
  3. Reboot phone
  4. Set USB debugging on
  5. Reboot the device and unplug from the computer
  6. Enable USB Debugging (Menu > Settings > Applications > Development)
  7. Enable Stay Awake (Menu > Settings > Applications > Development)
  8. Enable Unknown Sources (Menu > Settings > Applications)
  9. Install Huawei Drivers
  10. After install plug phone in. Windows should auto install the drivers.
  11. Unzip the DooMLorRD Easy Rooting Toolkit to a directory
  12. Run the runme.bat and follow the prompts
  13. After a reboot repeat steps 1 and 2, but set Log Off.
  14. Done.

Thanks!

This phone is very weird, I didn't think anyone took the time to root it. I appreciate the write-up.

Have you found any other tricks for this phone?

More memory/apps to remove

So first off, thanks for this! really glad someone is looking out for the poor blokes out there xD (i picked mine up from fry's for $30 no contract)

My main intention of rooting is to speed up this phone a bit by removing bloat, as well as more room for apps. Since there isnt a working cwm for this phone, I'm being cautious on what i change or remove. any suggestions on what can be removed?
