Lightbulb Rooting, Recovery[N/A], ROMs[N/A] and Confrimed Removable Guide (01/18/2013)

I had some trouble Finding the info and the software I needed so I'm going to help with the new to this world. I'm going to be tinkering around to see what I can come up with. Will be including Thanks to all contributed. Will be updating as more becomes available.


Disclaimer: Neither myself or the developers are responsible for any damage you do to your phone. If you are not familiar with these methods, I'd suggest that you do some research elsewhere to better understand before you attempt anything on your device. WE HAVE NO RECOVERY AS OF YET.


Rooting:


First your gonna need the Drivers:

Win x86 --> Link

Win x64 --> Link
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Install one of those first.

Second your going to need rooting program:

Bin4ary's script : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=31545627 Original thread

v18 --> Link

v2 --> Link ( Which is the only one that worked for me )

Make sure you unzip[I used 7zip] into it's own folder[Makes it easier to identify]

Go to Settings, System, Developer Options and make sure USB Debugging is checked.

Connect phone to computer, and select Media Transfer on the phone

Now double click RunMe.bat file in the new folder you created.

In the newer versions[v15, v16] you will hit 1 and follow the on screen prompts, The phone will ask you to enter an encryption password... don't, just hit Restore My Data on the bottom right of the screen on your phone. Follows the rest if any prompts, the phone will reboot. Should have ROOT!!!

In older version[v2] you will hit 3 and follow the on screen prompts,The phone will ask you to enter an encryption password... don't, just hit Restore My Data on the bottom right of the screen on your phone. Follow any on screen prompts if any , the phone will reboot. You should have ROOT!!!


Confirmed Removable Apps: Always Backup First with App Backup[Titanium Backup]{remember that its always safer to FREEZE app than to delete} Original Thread


Google Movies
Music
Plus
Talk
Books

Ecomode [Only suggestion is kill the process "com.Kyocera.ecomode" before uninstalling the app or u get a recurring error popup until u reboot]

Boost Zone

Mobile ID

Stock Browser

Launcher[I removed. Remember to get a replacement FIRST]

Link2sd does work with this phone. Confirmed working with a FAT32 partition. Stable for me.


Recovery: N/A


ROMs: N/A



THANKS:

Bin4ry for Root
animejoe69 for helping me Root
chevanlol360 for helping to get Recovery(N/A)
stingrays for Risking Phone app removal
Robertech for Risking Phone app removal
and THANKS to anyone I might have missed.

If this has helped in anyway please hit THANKS

No prob I'll put in today. Have you done the link2sd before, it stores programs onto the sd card. I have 60 apps on my phone and only using 210mb on the phone for app storage.

I got root using v16, however titanium back up will not load up completely. All it says is "Asking for root rights..." Any idea to what's going on, or is there another way to remove apps.

The script said everything failed when I tried v2.. Would I have to unroot v16 and then try again with v2?

So v2 won't install superuser? I just tried v2 and ran root checker, it said there was no root.
Nevermind, figured it out. Thanks!

Click HERE for v2 and the Kyocera drivers for x86 and x64. Everything's in one .zip. Just follow Tattooedgod's instructions. The process is pretty straightforward. I've tried Bin4ry's v14, v15, and v16 with no success. v2 does the trick. I didn't have to install anything else to root my phone. v2 did everything for me.

I'm assuming this is the one and only launcher on the phone correct ?

I highly suggest you do not remove it. If you do, when you do a factory restore, the phone will not have a launcher to use. It will be stuck in an error boot loop.

Yeah, it wasn't until I read about your success that I tried v2. I noticed with the newer versions that the Play market changed but other than that, no root. Bin4ry has released so many updated versions (there's already a v17 now) that I think all the settings he's implementing are taking away compatibility from other phones. Who knows? So what launcher did you substitute?

be sure your usb connection mode is set to "media transfer" and not "mass storage". some people have made this mixup and failed to root because of it.

Have you tried to hook usb will boost logo on screen don't know if that will work. Get a zip of original apps install that way. Formated factory settings might have done something, how long have you let it try to boot for. And have you tried to pull battery for like 15-20mins then try again. other then that original factory image.

great, now enable usb debugging mode, pull a copy of all folders located in the phone's internal memory (not the sd card), and save on pc just in case you accidentally break it again. leave debugging mode enabled permenantly and if anything goes wrong you can always push the saved folders back to the phone to *hopefully* restore it to working order. ADB is a life saver

Just an FYI if the "Run_ me_sh" file does not open on Linux Mint , you need to right click go to "properties" , check , to permission allow executing for as program. Then if you get permission denied when running the script , go into the "Stuff directory" , right click on "adb" and check, to permission allow executing for as program .

Default Fix for problems

Hi guys im new here good to be here.But i think i have a quick fix for the bugs ive read about with this hydro root...i used v17 but i noticed that YES i have SuperSU and YES it rooted BUT,when i used an app that needed root access it would freeze up..and bug up and root apps wouldnt work..(Heres why)its a full root but you need to go into the app drawer and open supersu and then go to options and have it AUTOMATICALLY GRANT ROOT ACCESS,also turn off the ACCESS SPLASH SCREEN THAT IS SUPPOSED TO POP UP.i noticed thats why it glithed because the screen wouldnt pop up to let you choose grant access.After that it works great on my wifes hydro.

I also want to say hello and thank the devs here for teaching me alot...Ive successfully rooted 2 prevails and a hydro and installed kak,3gturbo,maxmultitaskingmod,and v6 supercharge.I learned alot in a short time and it all started with me reading this forums...Thanks again

Default To Root or not to Root?

Hi. Got this phone recently and love it, 90% of the stuff I do on this doesn't even involve calling lol. I been reading on the purpose of rooting and I'm still confused as to the purpose, performance? other than super access because you can...If I disable all the built in boost stuff like Mobiel ID, Voicemail, Vocemail message counter, as well as kyocera update tool, any noticeable improvement?

Also, this recovery everyone is talking about, is it a backup of current system state so that you don't have to resort to factory, or can you even go to factory settings anymore if you root?

Well one positive is that you can link2sd with gives more memory on the phone for app storage. Also changing system apps is very helpful, tweaking build. prop for better performance. Modifying anything within reason. And new recovery would be the way to have new roms and kernels (overclock kernels could boost performance). Basically your phone your way.

Thumbs up

OMG thank you sooo much for posting this … it was so easy and simple…

FYI for those than cant get the WiFi Tether to work, all you need to do is: hit the menu button, select the setting options, then select “change Device-Profile” and select Generic ICS/JB (wlan0) and Walla, your WiFi Tether should be working now, at least that's what I did and it works like charm.

Talking Sorry for the Delay

I got the links back up and running icluding the v2 that works the best. Sorry it took so long but was sick with the flu for 2 weeks and then working on another phone until Hydro gets some more love. I have also modified the phone with pimp my rom alpha to enable zram but thats risky. Any thing you do in that app is risky for the most part.

Default V18 root?

Alright guys, I'm from the Prevail family, and my wife is bringing me a new hydro! I read in the forum that someone should try to install V18. I'm willing to try it out. I have made a few boot images and done some customizing on cm7 fir my awesome little prevail. Let's figure out how to get cwm so we can get this phone rolling! I

Nice let us know how it goes and if the installation goes correctly. With any of the others others except v2 we had to manually install superuser and busy box and then allow all. Which is not good for the system safety. We really need to unlock the bootloader but it's going to be a fight, Kyocera isn't going to do it peaceful like.

Over on the rise forums, we aren't having much luck either. The Rise is also on Public Mobile, in addition to sprint and virgin mobile. It has a different product number, c5156 vs c5155, and it has fastboot enabled. Only problem is, the guy who was helping us bricked his phone. He was able to "flashboot boot" into CWM, just not actually install it. I've got an unopened Rise I'm going to flash the c5156 bootloader to, to see if it gives fastboot access or if it just bricks it.

Edit: It bricks it. Now I'm tearing it apart for the heck of it.

V2 is what I had to use also. We need to stir everyone up again! Cwm is a must in order to go any further on this phone. Db2 has an idea, and I believe it could be a big step! If our phone shows that it's running 4.0.3, it would try to update! Any input from you guys will help

I unfortunately don't have the knowledge to help to much. I compile info, beta test, and have been gaining knowledge of how things work.

Awesome, that's how we all learn. I have a copy of the source code, but I haven't had anyone say whether or not it would be helpful

I do know that getting our bootloader unlocked or getting around it. Is crucial to success

Yes, that's right. If we could force an app to partially work, maybe we could bug Kyocera for an update to allow the app to work properly. If we could get an os update, we could figure out how the bootloader reads signatures!
