    Hi,

    I'm considering rooting my phone, however I have no idea where to starts as most of the guides I find for this kind of old phone are for earlier version of android.

    I'm looking to accomplish 2 main things:
    1) Expand the amount of device memory (2 GB is not enough)
    2) Unlock the phone to be able to use it with other networks

    Do you think these 2 are achievable without having to install a custom rom?

    Thanks in advance
