rooting Huawei Blaze ( IDEOS X3 model U8510-1 )
I saw this post, which is a few years old, relating to the Huawei Sonic / U8650 here:
www dot austech dot info/mobile-phones/61209-how-root-huawei-sonic-u8650.html
I have a Huawei Blaze and inside it says IDEOS X3 model U8510-1
Settings > About phone says:
Android version 2.3.5
Model Number U8510
Baseband version 60501015
Build number U8510-1V100R001C290B855
As I have not had an android phone before I am not familiar with details as to rooting this phone.
I have used linux on all my PC's and laptop's for years so am happy to try rooting it except that I could do with some answers.
Would the same downloaded file be suitable?
If not is there an updated one?
Does it need unzipping and the files from it to be transferred to SD card or does it simply need copying to the card?
Would it actually be an improvement on what I currently have?
I have run All Backup and backed up what i have to SD card but what does this actually mean?
Does it mean that if I wanted to I could go back to where I am and would that be by starting in recovery mode?
Hope you can help.
