Smile Rooting the Hydro

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


(I did not write any of the above info, just gathered it from other posts and sites, perhaps this info could be added to the all things root area's rooting guide?)

Hey Wiesshund - thanks for sharing this!

I am not familiar with this phone... I take it that you have rooted using this method?

We could move this to the root section for the phone and link it to the sticky if you would like

if you're on a windows pc, click start, right-click on 'my computer', and click properties. if you see anywhere that says x64, it's a 64 bit system. x86 is 32 bit and more common.

When I click the link for v 15 it takes me to XDA site and I see this msg.

Invalid Attachment specified. This can happen for a variety of reasons-- most likely because the thread or post you are trying to view has been moved or deleted. Please return to the forum home and browse for another similiar post.

The first link takes me to XDA with instructions and another link that brings me to some site where I must register before getting the file.

I tried Bin4ry's v14, v15, and v16 rooting kit with no luck. All three of them reported false root success. v2 is the only other version I tried but it's the only one that yielded success. Many thanks to animejoe69 for that tip and for the files.

Click HERE for v2 and the Kyocera drivers for x86 and x64.

I tried 6 times to root. I get the superuser access...but the apps won't work.

Edit: nevermind I got it...I had to take superuser off prompt and do auto access.

If you had to set it to "auto", then you did not use the correct script. The reason the v2 script works is because of the version of the su binary and superuser apk that it comes with. The actual script version isn't important. I would double check what version you used, then download the version of the rooting script from this link:
[GUIDE] Root your Kyocera Rise! - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

That one has the correct binary and apk for the Rise and Hydro.

I followed all the instructions, but when I ran the Run_Me file there was no third option so I just picked the first one (Normal). I clicked "restore my data" on my phone and the CMD prompt showed activity, then it said "If all is successful I will tell you, if not this shell will run forever."

And guess what? It's still running.....

Any suggestions?

[QUOTE=desktop;5539383]I followed all the instructions, but when I ran the Run_Me file there was no third option so I just picked the first one (Normal). I clicked "restore my data" on my phone and the CMD prompt showed activity, then it said "If all is successful I will tell you, if not this shell will run forever."

And guess what? It's still running.....

Any suggestions?[/QUOTE Use Bin4ary's script v2 which worked for me and the third option will be there.

If I have time I'll repackage my copy. Alternately you can use the on-phone rooting method someone just found.

maikal, thank you for that link. I downloaded and unzipped the file, then I plugged my phone into the computer and clicked the "RunMe" file. the CMD window popped up and I chose option "3". It doesn't say it's still running, but it's just sitting there. This is what I see on the CMD screen....

Please connect device with ADB-debugging enabled now (I have debugging turned on) ....

I'm wondering if I should do a factory reset and try again? Or maybe you have to have BusyBox already installed?

After you seen all of this a screen should of pop up on your phone hit Restore My Data on the bottom right of the screen on your phone it should restart your phone and you will have root. If you did not get this screen on your phone maybe you can try a restore but I didnt have to have busybox on my phone.

A screen did pop up on my phone and I hit "restore my data" and that's when I got the info on the CMD window that I posted previously. But after that it just sat there and nothing else happened. My phone didn't restart or anything.

Maybe try a restore and give it another go. If that dont work try to go here New Root Method No Pc - Credit to MyFormIsCrack over on the rise forums And see if this method will work out for you.

maikal, thank you for all your help. Since the original method failed twice I'm going to try this method instead. I'll post back with my results.

I got everything I was supposed to from that post (SuperUser and Minstro 2), but when I click the POOT all I get is "Windows can't open this file....Poot-debug(W100).apk....to open this file, Windows needs to know what program to use to open it."

Any suggestions?

I did some Googling and found that I could open it if I renamed the file with a "zip" extension. So I did that and then unzipped the file, but now I have no idea what to do with the unzipped contents. I don't see any executable files.

You wouldn't. Google baksmali and learn how to use it. Then learn Java. Then learn the particular dialect that is Dalvik.

Easy peasy. ;p
