    Hello There. Needed Help If Anyone can Tell Me How Can I Root a Huawei Ascend Y200 Commonly Known as u8655-1 . I have searched over all the web and found no app for that. Superoneclick and GBroot did not work.

    to root the Y200 you buy in Australia. (and other international english versions) (probably all versions) works 100%. cant garuntee any other country, but this information is a mixture of badly translated instructions in a few different countries

    1. turn off "fast boot" in "applications" menu in settings

    2. turn on "USB debugging" in "Development" in "Applications " in settings

    and unzip file into a new folder


    HAVE THE Rootv5.2.bat FILE from zip ready to run on computer

    turn off phone. remove battery for 5 seconds .

    now we will change to custom recovery mode.

    replace battery, plug in via usb to computer & hold "volume up" & power button on at same time until logo appears on screen

    release up vol & power button & then immediately press "volume down & power button & hold until logo freezes / stays on screen / doesnt progress beyond the logo
    (you may to continually hold power button and only swap between vol up & vol down as alternative)

    run the BAT file from the root zip file u extracted

    wait for 10 15 seconds, then press RETURN .... will say stuff, then pause press RETURN again, repeat once more. it should say finished (hopefully) (or similar)

    now u have mod recovery mode.

    make sure u copied the file u downloaded above to the root directory of ur SD card.

    turn phone off.

    remove battery for 5 - 10 secs.

    replace battery. hold Volume up button & power button on for 15 seconds (or until a text menu appears)

    navigate menu with vol up & vol down keys , power button selects.
    select install zip file from sd card.
    select .

    will run script for very short time & display success message.

    now your phone is rooted.

    recommend titanium backup for all software install, uninstalls bloatware etc.
    if any system apps wont remove (gives error) BLOATWARE FREEZER should work.
