That way, people can at least make an informed choice about whether they want to donate.

My two cents.
Its not like I meant to do something wrong. Why don't you add it for me since you are so adimate about it.

I am sure it was enthusiasm gone wild that caused your oversight at not linking. I remember how giddy I was when I first rooted my first Droid phone.

I would love to add Giantpune's link to your guide, but I would need your password at unleashed-prepaid to do that, which I doubt you would be willing to give. So, if you want to correct your oversight and edit "your" guide over there to add Giantpune's donation link (or to link back to his original post on p.3 of this thread), that would be great.

Thanks in advance for that correction.

Posts are up.

For rooting LG Optimus Dynamic (L38C) via Poot:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=36625140&postcount=20

For rooting LG Optimus Logic (L35) via Poot:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=36625397&postcount=68

Thanks again, giantpune.

P.S. If it's not a lot of trouble, I am sure it would cause more adoption (and more potential donations) if you adapted your Poot-debug.apk to the wonky screen resolution of those two phones (240x320). Though I was brave enough to click on Poot after seeing screen wonkiness, others may not. Regardless, though, thanks again for your very elegant, portable solution.

im completely new to the whole android world as i was an izombie for a long time. still, gingerbread is better than the latest ios update in my opinion. also, being that there is no way to "ease" into the underground of the android world im on the crash course. i have no idea what clockwork mod is and i only know that my phone is rooted, (thanks to giantpune) but not what it means. so, here goes my potentially and probably stupid question: is it possible to get jellybean on my h866c now that my phone is rooted? and if so, how? thank you for your patience with a complete newb to android and any answers you may have.

Why wait on giantpnue? What more are you expecting? I don't have access to one of these phones, and I have no intentions of buying one out of my own pocket. And that leaves me absolutely no reason in the world to want to start building a rom for it.

Does that mean that if I were to ship you my LG Optimus Dynamic (LG38C - Source Code released on LG Source Site as "LGL38C" model number) for you to borrow (Straight Talk only; Verizon towers), that you would be open to developing any or all of the following for it:
0. Poot with right screen configuration?
1. CWM (or, preferably, TWRP) recovery?
2. Kernel (with overclocking and/or undervolting and/or that gps module you developed for Elite (and any other kernel module you can think of that would be relevant to phone or data/network use))?
3. CM 10 or 10.1 ROM?

I know that any of the above is asking a lot of you, and the whole thing is asking a ton of you, but I figure that worst you can say is no, and the default answer will be no if I don't ask. So, I ask.

Though I would prefer to get the phone back when you were done, I am open to some other arrangement if you prefer; we can figure out the particulars.

Let me know your thoughts.

And, apologies for thread stealing!!

what a douche. get off your friggin high horse, bro. i realize how "important" you are (REALLY thick sarcasm there), but you have got to be one of the most arrogant and egotistical gremlins ive ever had the bad luck of coming across. if you want to help people, great. if you want people to bow down to you- get bent. id smash my phone with a hammer before i asked you for anything... then i d buy another one and smash it with a hammer. im not going to take anything from you. you probably have a GREAT understanding of the droid o.s. but thats the limit of your contribution, and while it far supersedes mine, your still a douche. i was asking if it was a universal process. i didnt want a hand out. if there was any work involved i would have "donated" like i was going to for the poot (also not going to happen now, im sure your heartbroken)

you'd make a good cop, you know that?

Now that we've rooted, has anyone had any success with clockwork? I've got it loaded on my sd card but can't get into the update screen for some reason.

Clockwork didn't work for me and I suggest being very careful with your recovery as Huawei has locked the bootloader. I tried flashing a recovery made for the h866c and it bricked it and sent it to image verify boot fail

Successful poot on lg l35g with no problems of screen distortion. I had some problems partitioning my sdcard to use link2sd. I could not get the phone to read both partitions so I just made one little partition and one big one

I have read through this thread and am lost as a red neck in new york city. that brings me the conclusion that i shouldnt try this at home. is there anyone in the ST.Louis areai could bring my phone to and gladly pay you to root it for me. I cant mail it out as i need my phone. i dont have another one an cant afford to be without it due to me using it for work so mailing it out is not an option.

It's not very difficult.

Go to the previous page (page 4). Download the Poot posted by that guy that I still need to send a donation to (I promise I will, I have to wait until the first of Feb. when I have money).

1. Save Poot to the SD card.
2. Download and install SuperUser (or SuperUser Elite if you want, but it's not necessary to pay for SU Elite).
3. Run Poot. It will need to download Ministro II. Accept the download and just let Ministro II download/install.
4. Let Ministro II install the QT packages it needs.
5. If you want, Reboot the phone (press and hold power button, select restart), but I don't think it's necessary.
6. Run Poot again, it will give you a success or failure message. If you did everything right, it will give you a success.

SuperUser or SuperUser Elite is necessary just for the root. I don't know about ClockWorkMod other than that CWM does NOT (the last time I checked) have a mod that supports Huawei H866c. Now if you do get a mod on there, you don't need SU or SU Elite (most of the time).

Well what do you expect from a budget phone?

It's damn good at $90 USD to be able to access the Internet and have several smart phone capabilities but now it's even better that it can actually be rooted thanks to that poot guy.

I rooted my ascend h866c with poot and then downloaded system tuner from the market. it allows you to remove most of the non-removable apps.

you can actually send commands to the recovery.

* The arguments which may be supplied in the recovery.command file: * --send_intent=anystri ng - write the text out to recovery.intent * --update_package=path - verify install an OTA package file * --wipe_data -erase user data (and cache), then reboot * --wipe_cache -wipe cache (but not user data), then reboot * --set_encrypted_files ystem=on|off -enables / diasables encrypted fs

Those are the commands you can use according to the one I found but that might be different for modded files. So using adb you can do this:

adb shell recovery --wipe_data

Thats what he needs to be able to recover his phone. Is there a dload available for this device?

Now far as trying to unlock the bootloader on this device, you all need to contact one of the devs thats known to be skilled at doing it on XDA or RootzWIki. And if none of them want to mess with then you all will need to find someone that knows how to do bootstrap/recovery and 2ndinit like the DroidX etc use.

Unfortunately I know nadda about either one.

That is funny though Brick phone take it back Brick phone take it back Brick phone take it back Brick phone take it back I don't see a problem with it if they don't
And really you can blame it on
HUAWEI Because most of their other phones have unlocked bootloaders

I can tell you're right now
Since you remove some of the system apps do not do a factory data reset from the recovery you will get make internal image fail from e signature verification

I've removed a bunch of the system garbage and even put custom apps in with apps2rom. I factory reset all the time without problems. I just wish there was more rom space to put some more apps on. I got rid of google+, maps, wallpapers, talk, browser, email, etc. I did get rid of some calendar dependant apps but restored them with my first titanium backup. I even changed the start up and shut downs animations.

I just bought the Ascend Y and attempted the poot method of rooting.

I downloaded poot-debug.apk and installed it - opened it, and it asked to download Ministro II (which I did)...

Ministro downloaded the libraries, and I was given the options "Press here to poot" or "Built-in rootcheck". I pressed poot, and was given the following:

+opened device
+set logging mode
+resolved symbols
+mapped 0x100000000
+hooked mask_request_validate()
-error running kernel-mode code
-failed to clean up our mess
-current && current !=last+1: 0000ffff 0000ffff
-haxx has run its coarse. reboot the device to play again

a demon materialized while pooting. error code:87
su binary was not written
you need to restart your device

I restart, and check for root, with no positive results.

UPDATE: I didn't install SuperUser before running poot. I factory reset, downloaded poot, and installed superuser. Followed directions until I got to "Press here to poot" and my phone froze. Low storage space, most likely. Trying again shortly.

UPDATE 2: That did it! I am now rooted and happy as a clam

Hi raymealer.. when you say if it does the dload thing.. do you mean after the root/poot prosses or before root is achieved? and do you mean while the phone is off or on. Currently i have tried it both ways and nothing happens?

I just baught my ascend y h866c cus i bricked my precedent which i was running areaMod. No i want to root this one... im just a little concerned bacause there is no stock ROM to go back to if something went wrong.. you know like with the precedent i could just run odin and it was all good and just start over with back ups.

Now the image, boot, and recovery.. is that what those files are for??? if so, how would I go about recoverying the phone if something goes wrong?

Also .. once i achieve root, would i be able to remove all the annoying apps i dont use and create a partition rom like the precedent to get more space for apps?

Hope you or anyone can help with these questions which others might want answered as well.

Thanks to all the fellas and giant for all the hard work so far. Cheers!!
