pcandy added a post in a topic How to root your Huawei Ascend G300 (for Windows, Mac and Linux)
Having real problems trying to root my new g300.
The phone is a unlocked Vodafone model, U8815 running 4.0.3, baseband 2030, B960. I want to root it to get rid of Vodafone bloat then try some other ROMs.
When I run 'install-superrecovery-windows' I get this ....
< waiting for device >
sending 'recovery' (5074 KB)... OKAY
writing 'recovery'... FAILED (remote: Command not allowed)
I just want to get rooted as the first step.
I'm very new to all this so please be kind! I see other have had similar issues, but I don't understand the responses or if they apply to my case.
I've also noted that my phone automatically goes to 'connected as an installer' when the usb cable is plugged in normal mode - is this a problem (?) when it boots to Huawei screen (vol down / on)
I believe I have downloaded the correct drivers.
