I have been looking here and elsewhere, but I haven't found anything definitive about rooting this particular phone. Can someone please help me? I am quite nervous about it, because if I fail I will be without a phone for quite a while.
I want to do it because I am tired of having gmail and Orange mail. Google maps and Orange maps... etc, etc. I am concerned about losing Orange's HD voice and signal boost, though. Is there a workaround for this that anyone knows of?
Apologies if this has been covered. I have looked but have not found anything. And thanks in advance.
This site should help you with rooting and flashing custom roms ect...
(sorry for advertising)
This is were i unlocked, rooted and installed a custom rom onto my orange monte carlo.
Once you have rooted download a app called anttek manager fro the market, from there you can get rid f the orange bloatware and leave your phone running faster and smoother. It will not remove HD voice and signal boost unless you remove it yourself.
It is fast and simple to do the steps you are after. Just follow the guides and you will be fine
Hope this helped.
