    Just a heads up too everyone who wants this phone its on sale at bestbuy right now for 49.99 it was on sale at bestbuy for 99.99 marked down from 149.99 and i had printed out the virgin mobile website that was offering it for 79.99 and they pricematched virgin mobiles price and gave me it for 79.99 plus i bought the 2 year protection from geaksquad for 15 bucks one time fee as long as u dont loose your recipte, good thing is bestbuy offers too email you ur recipte so i looked through my email found it and they just gave me 31.00 back and some change for the phone so for 49.99 people should get it while its on sale and start makeing cwm recovery image for it and all which isnt available just yet i hope soon it will be though with its sale price like this , cause i would love too be able too frealy tweak some things without complete scare iam gonna brick my phone , because there is root available but no recovery so thats dangerous buisness , atleast for me id say it is ,, so if you wanna check out the phone while its on sale at bestbuy
    this is the virgin mobiles specs:

    and here is the best buy sale

    tryed to post links showing but forum will not allow me too so just look up on the rise at bestbuy

    its 3g but they dont have 4g where iam at and 35.00 a month for 300 voice mins unlimited text and data , i think thats good specially when paired with googlevoice and grooveip to have unlimited calls through your data package now it can be stuttery sometimes but not soo bad guess it depends on how fast ur actually getting speeds in your area

    also ive tryed foxfi on it and it provide free wifi hotspoting and works
    also rooted it works well with barnical and su

    Todays date it sunday december 9th 2012
    dunno how long this sale will last guys but figured id give a heads up

    please provide a guide or link on how you rooted the phone ...

    Thank you!

    edit to ask: Also Google Play store says foxfi is incompatible with k-rise, I wonder how you managed to install it

    I don't think foxfi works on the rise, you can use it to make a Bluetooth tether connection , of the computer has easy tether installed, and Bluetooth.

    Rooting, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1886460
    Follow the how to, use the normal method. After its rooted remove supersu, if it installed it. Supersu will not work.

    Foxfi works fine i have the full version and supersu works just fine i cant remember where i got root software but it was ment for another phone and just happens too work for the rise id
    Prefer to have regular superuser over supersu becausr unless u grant access all the time to rhe root it locks on the rise r dont get root access seems buggy vs superser ok just looked on pc i used root with restore by bin4ry ferget what version but i know i found root by youtube search which had the links too download in video

    Def- follow sneakys link too root i removed supersu and got superuser and its soo much better this way however i purched superuser elite when i had my old gingerbread phone fot supporting the devoloper but i read a few comments on the googleplaystore about it not working right on peoples phones that was rooted because it hasnt beenupdated in awhile idk how true that is or not i like the wsy the root is working now with superuser so my feelings are for now if its not broke dont fix it but if anyone else wants too risk it let me know the results


    Also on foxfi if u scroll to the bottom of the googleplaystore once u typed in foxfi in the search and open it and it says ur carrier has blocked you from downloading this app just read the developer provided a alternative download in case of such things

    29.99 @ target so i went and bought another today would change my post title from 49.99 to 29.99 but ill just let this thread die down the ranks but figured id add in 1 more post bout it being 29.99 at target somebody said in another subject thread 29.99 till sunday but i didnt look iam sure its on targets website also if they run out grab a flyer and have bestbuy pricematch it @ targets prices so you can still get it @ 29.99 if target runs out as long as you have the flyer for target


    dunno if this will work for printing out and takeing to another store that does pricematching but figured id add just incase it does help

    Cool moderator changed the thread title for me to sale on Kyocera Rise very generic but better then new threads started about every sale price and cluttering the board with a variety of diffrent prices when goes on sale, i wonder has anyone been able to port cwm recovery to this phone yet i wont go off topic but send me a mesg if anyone figures that out for me ty all now ill let whoever finds better prices brand new see if they can beat 29.99 from target i did not find this price the credit goes to another
