    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.


    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 : 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

    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

    this is a good start with everything in one place.

    just wish we could get a recovery/backup file.

    a little more info on file removal as in exactly how it is labeled inside the file manager would be really helpfull to newbees like me

    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.

    one thing i did notice. if you update the binaries of Superuser you lose root. i'm not sure why.

    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.

    Tattooedgod Well-Known Member

    Hey that's the issue with any version except v2 that's the only one that worked for a lot

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

    Tattooedgod Well-Known Member

    I didn't when it didn't work for me. I also install Busybox and super user that's what I had to do

    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!

    Alternative Link:
    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.

    That is what I found really made mad till I got v2 couldn't figure out what was wrong.

    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.
  16. AlmytyHeretic

    AlmytyHeretic Member

    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?
  17. Tattooedgod

    Tattooedgod Well-Known Member

    Yeah that's probably a good idea I didn't have to that but it might help you get it I still had to run v2 like 6 times to get it to work

    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.

    Just wondering if I can get some help. I think I might of bricked my phone. Anyways I got this device rooted and all and unistall the same things you did like launcher and etc and replaced with apex. and did a complete back up with titanium backup. Well I formated to factory settings and it said it unfortunately stop during process. now when I boot it stays on the screen with the orange boost thing in the middle is there anything I can do?
  21. Tattooedgod

    Tattooedgod Well-Known Member

    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.

    Thanks for the help I finally got to a black screen synce my google account and sent titanium backup.apk to my email installed it restored now everythings fine.

    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
