Default Rooting without a PC?

Hi I am new and new to naviting forums as well. I have read a lot of info here though. I just want to know if there is abway to root without the assistance of a computer. My phone is Huawei Ascend II ANDROID 2.3.6. I am not too technical on phones and also wondered if anyone knows if there is someone in the Phoenix area that will root and ugrade to the latest upgrade for hire as i am so afraid of doing it myself and messing up. Any help is appreciatex.

As long as you at least have a stable high-speed WiFi connection available for your phone (even if you have to visit a friend's or relative's house to "borrow" their connection, with their permission), updating the stock firmware won't be an issue, it'll go through just fine without screwing anything up. Just make sure that your phone is connected to the WiFi, then go to Settings -> About Phone. There should be an update item there (I forget what it's labeled exactly, I haven't used the stock firmware in ages). It will take awhile to download, but once it does, you're set.

As for rooting without a PC, that's a maybe. If you're currently on Android 2.3.3 (you can check in Settings -> About Phone), just follow the sticky thread directly phone. You can skip the part about connecting it to your computer, just make sure to download the update.zip file (in your phone's browser) in step 1 directly to the top-most level of the SD card (double check in the filemanager), then continue from step 6.
