    I want to root a Kyocera Rise (C5155). The problem is that I cannot get any windows computer (XP, 7 or 8) to recognize the phone, with or without the proper drivers. I have tried 3 different windows machines, including a brand new Acer laptop. I have tried rebooting the computers and the phone, using different cables, trying different USB Ports even factory resetting the phone. I plug it in and it simply charges. There is no notification about USB debugging (which is turned on) or anything.
    However, the phone behaves as it should when plugged into my friend's Mac. The notification about USB debugging appears, and the phone prompts me to choose between Mass Storage, charge only or media transfer. I wonder why it won't behave this way when connected to a computer running windows... I even tried to manually root it using adb, but the Android sdk is unsupported by Mac OS X 10.4.11.
    I simply need to know if there is a way to root this phone using an older Mac, or without using a computer at all. I am beginning to think I am destined to be rootless on this phone.
    Thanks!

    Have you considered linux? You don't even have to muck with anything, there's a Windows installer that lets you run Ubuntu or Mint for example, without making any changes to your hard disk. You just click the icon and up boots linux.

    Check the All Things Root forum for the Rise. There are instructions and links for the Windows drivers.
