to root the Y200 you buy in Australia. (and other international english versions) (probably all versions) works 100%. cant garuntee any other country, but this information is a mixture of badly translated instructions in a few different countries
1. turn off "fast boot" in "applications" menu in settings
2. turn on "USB debugging" in "Development" in "Applications " in settings

and unzip file into a new folder
RUN THE INSTALL adb EXE FILE
HAVE THE Rootv5.2.bat FILE from zip ready to run on computer
turn off phone. remove battery for 5 seconds .
now we will change to custom recovery mode.
replace battery, plug in via usb to computer & hold "volume up" & power button on at same time until logo appears on screen
release up vol & power button & then immediately press "volume down & power button & hold until logo freezes / stays on screen / doesnt progress beyond the logo
(you may to continually hold power button and only swap between vol up & vol down as alternative)
run the BAT file from the root zip file u extracted
wait for 10 15 seconds, then press RETURN .... will say stuff, then pause press RETURN again, repeat once more. it should say finished (hopefully) (or similar)
now u have mod recovery mode.
make sure u copied the Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip file u downloaded above to the root directory of ur SD card.
turn phone off.
remove battery for 5 - 10 secs.
replace battery. hold Volume up button & power button on for 15 seconds (or until a text menu appears)
navigate menu with vol up & vol down keys , power button selects.
select install zip file from sd card.
select Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip .
will run script for very short time & display success message.
now your phone is rooted.
recommend titanium backup for all software install, uninstalls bloatware etc.
if any system apps wont remove (gives error) BLOATWARE FREEZER should work.
