    Android smartphone Huawei VALIANT ( Y301-A1 ), power of a 1.0 GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor on Android 4.1 operating system, VERY cheap, and with no contract,$79 came out recently for MetroPCS.

    I looked everywhere on the internet and I think there isn't any root for this device. If anyone knows how to root Huawei VALIANT:eek:, if you make a post about this, it would be wonderful.

    Thank You.

    I haven't figured how to root it yet , but did find a chip unlock solution for GSM part of it. I've got the phone when it went on sale 2 weeks ago for $29.99 and it's pretty nice. What makes it even nicer that i was able to GSM unlock it for 4$
    Initially found a guy on e-bay - he is from UK, but then he gave me his web page and i got the unlock code. He have sent me a 4 16 digit numbers. Instructions where to use the first one but the first one did not work. I've contacted him and got following response:
    I am sorry to hear that code didn't work;

    It could be due to the Jelly bean or latest android upgrade, as all unlock codes comes from official supplier.

    As always there are some exceptions to the rules. So in-case your unlock code has not worked the first time. Please backup your data on the phone and perform a full factory reset from settings menu and re-enter the code after restart.

    After reset if the first 16 digit code failed please enter the other codes one by one. As one of them should work.

    So i went in to recovery (Power-off, Vol-UP & power on) did factory reset, then started entering all the numbers one by one out of the 4 he have sent. The 3rd one worked.

    To test put a T-Mobile SIM that didn't work before and got service and even 3G, which really surprised me because I thought this is an AT& network specific phone.

    with in 4 hours odd open inf the device that particular root worked for the Huawei Vitria so I'm guessing it should work for that. Gandulf on the newish one they had. I'm on my phoneor I share a link. Wait keys yet anyway

    Well, my girlfriend broke the screen on hers so I have a new toy! Lol.

    I'll be trying a few root methods this weekend and let you know if I'm successful.

    Hi there. I'm kinda new to the forums, but I'm a guy who up until now has just been lurking around and learning all I can about Androids. Anyway, I tried everything I could think of to root this phone (after all, it is a pain in the a** if you don't anymore), and I came up with a program called Kingoroot. It isn't mine, and I just tried it out on some other phones. Just on a whim, I ran it, (after turning on USB debugging on the phone, of course), next connected the USB cable between my PC and my phone, followed the instructions, and it rooted it. I next installed, ran and updated supersu (available on playstore) the phone installed I verified it using rootchecker (also available on playstore). Appears to be a good root! :)

    My system specs are:

    I'm not responsible for what you do with this sh1+. Hope it helps!
