Default re: trying to root a Kyocera Hydro

My service is with Boost Mobile. I have been trying to root the Kyocera Hydro phone So I can turn on the wifi hotspot and tethering. I was told by a factory rep and Amazon that this phone can do that job. Boost Mobile says it can't. Boost Mobile says the only 2 phones that will do wifi hotspot and tethering on there service is the Samsung Galaxy s2 and the HTC Veo. I can't afford ether one new. I was also told by a person online that has been pointing me to online articles about rooting phones. Starting with the fundamentals of rooting. That this phone can do the wifi hotspot and tethering if rooted. I have gotten real deep into my phone. though I am not shure if it is rooted. I see a lot of files that look a lot like windows operation/system files. But I know enough not to do anything with them beyond looking. If i can't get this phone to do wifi hotspot and tethering. Then can someone please tell me what phone would be good for what I need, for what I can afford or trade for. I got the Kyocera Hydro new from Amazon for $150.00 Other then the wifi hotspot and tethering this phone has suited my needs well. Sometimes (but not often enough to buy a separate cell phone type usb device) I take my laptop out on Amateur Radio demo's were there isn't a open wifi to tie into. That's why I need the wifi hotspot and tethering. I always have some kind of a/c power to plug into at the site.

I'm using the kyocera rise which is the brother to the hydro (nearly all the same specs) my phone can use hotspot and tether as well but only if it's rooted. Luckily rooting the hydro is easily accomplished.

Have you rooted your phone yet? I can't tell by your post. If so what program did you use? There are several ways to tell if your phone is rooted. Try a google search (how to tell if my phone is rooted android) or you can download Titanium Backup application from Google market and it will prompt asking for root permission when the app starts up.

Default re: trying to root a Kyocera Hydro

I used a prog called "root checker" the hydro is not rooted. I have been trying to find a rooting prog that I can understand. I understand Android is based on Linux. I don't know much about Linux. I have always used Msdos then Windows. The Samsung galaxy prevail is only good for practicing rooting on. The prevail has (I think hardware) problems. When the prevail has sat a few days with the battery out of it then I put the battery back in. It will work fine for a few days. Then the operations start getting slower until it dies. The battery is fine. I had it tested at a local cell phone repair store. But thay wouldn't tell me any more without charging me to look at the phone. I don't know if is a hardware or a software problem. I got the prevail as is. The prevail looks beat up. the screen has surface scratches on it.

Exclamation Root Kyocera Hydro

Yes Hello Ptree here ok here's where we are at currentley... On Boosts Kyocera Hydro running 4.0.1 ics . The two links with the bat script do NOT work pressing the #3 option which would indicate another device. I have not personally tried any of the other #'s because I dont like to freeze phones I just paid 139 for ,w no sbf files or recovery. So as of Oct 19th , there is no root for this phone. I believe u can email Bi4ary and ask him to exploit root, or learn linux and push the superuser app through there is an old video on installing superuser , but it is a little bit ahead of me. My last suggestion for all the people who just dont care and wanna try.... Z4 Root . Lastly yes 2 boost phones DO have hot spot capability but if u root u can and do bypass your carriers hot spot. If u look on play store boost has banned fox fi from being downloaded so it s probably going to be good ol ,Wireless T.
Hope this helped.

The Hydro is rooted.

Some things are needed before hand..

1. Make sure you have the Hydro Drivers

2. You need to download busybox from the playstore.

Follow the directions in the Rooting guide

Boom! Root!


I really like Foxfi. It doesn't require root, but it is an awesome app.

how far in the process are you getting. Do you get to the "restore my data" option on the phone?

It looks as if you are running the bat file.from inside the zip?
If so.you must extract it to a.permanant folder.
You have file.path errors.going on there.

Wink THX!

Yes hello, ok special thx to Wiesshund ! Sooo apparentley I could have been rooted this whole time, but had never physically had to extract a rooting file in 7zip before( droid 2, galaxy2 and htc t bolt were all one click.This time the file needed to be extracted in 7zip because it was not open that was the path error I kept getting on c prompt. So basically that was whole problem! I then ran program then plugged in phone when c prompt asked. So again thx to everyone but especially Wiesshund!

Default re: trying to root a Kyocera Hydro

I am trying to run the Titanium backup prog. But I am stuck. I am following the instructions below.
-----------------
Titanium Backup HOWTOs
This section describes the specific and basic jobs methodologies.
1 How to make your first backup WITHOUT root
2 How to make your first backup on rooted device
3 How to restore your backups on a new phone, or after installing a ROM (if you wiped your phone)
4 How to use the multi-user “data profiles” feature (Pro version, TB 4.0.0 or above)
5 How to do an advanced system data restore (the most difficult case, where both data migration and manual data tinkering are needed)
6 How to export an app’s data to a Google Docs spreadsheet, Excel or OpenOffice Calc
1. How to make your first backup WITHOUT root:
Before beginning, you need to setup your ADB and have your device detected. You must also running Android version 4.0 and above. Also, make sure you have a file manager installed. Our favorite is the ES File Explorer.
Connect your device and make sure its listed with the following command:
adb devices
Run a FULL backup with the following command:
adb backup -f FullBackup.ab -apk -all
---------------------------
ES File Explorer is installed along with busybox on the phone already.

It says to connect the phone and make shure it is listed with the following cmd. The phone is plugged in with mass storage and usb debugging turned on. But I don't know were to type in the cmd "adb devices" and "adb backup -f FullBackup.ab -apk -all" I 2 am posting a few pictures.

I don't know how to post a html picture here

On PC, at a command prompt, you need ADB installed.

Read through the other threads here on what people have done to get the Hydro rooted. Follow their instructions, most are step by step. I can't post links yet, but there are some really helpful people here who are willing to help. I rad through two threads and rooted my Hydro in a couple minutes with NO experience.

Kyocera Hydro Confirmed Working Root

is HOW to do it.

As far as I have read, there is NO recovery yet. Just don't go hog-wild and fiddle around too much if you don't know what you are doing (like me). Following these two steps got me rooted, though. Good luck!

I have the drivers installed correctly and verified with adb.exe shell that the phone is connected. And I have backed up the phone to my laptop already. But I can't find a clear set of instructions on how to use avd and sdk to root the phone. I tryed with a prog called superoneclick to root the phone. The prog gets to line 7 and just sits and waits for an action. I have no idea what it wants.

My Hydro is rooted, you heard correctly that it will get the job done. Look under one of the first posts when we finally got root access, make sure your phone is running USB Debugging, hit option 4 in the program, and it'll run. It will prompt you to restore data. Restore it. It won't erase anything, but it will give you SU. After you have SU installed on your phone go onto the Google Play Store and type in "Wifi Tethering for Root Users" It'll be the app with a wifi looking icon but it's yellow. After that it's all smooth sailing (: Hope this helped!

Thanks Wiesshund. I will let you know the outcome. I have a backup phone if I end up bricking this one. It is a real dumb phone. A LG-102. A very basic phone. Voice and txt only. But it will do in a pinch. My farther was a very wise man. He drilled into me. Always have a backup plain. And the only dumb question is the one that doesn't get asked.

I am pretty shure that the phone is rooted now.
This is strange. Before when I ran "wifi tether" it says that the phone needs to be rooted. Now after I ran the rooting script I got online "wifi tether" works. But a prog I have called "root checker basic" said "this device does not have proper root access". What gives?

Files needed:
Kyocera USB Drivers
32 bit Custom Action Information

64 bit Custom Action Information

Bin4ary's multi phone root app.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=31545627
(I recommend release 15 http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1398011&d=1350123242 )

Instructions:
1) go to Settings, "System", "Developer Options" and make sure "USB Debugging" is checked
Connect phone to computer, and select "Media Transfer" on the phone

2) After extracting the archive of Bin4ary's rooting app to a folder on your PC, open that folder and Run the "RunMe" file and select "3> Other" in the on-screen prompts.

3) The phone will ask you to enter an encryption password... don't, just hit "restore my data" on the bottom of the screen on your phone.

4) Follow any further on-screen prompts, your phone will reboot, and you're Rooted

!!WARNING!! there is currently no working recovery, beware of the changes you make to your phone, modify at your own risk
