Help regarding rooting Huawei U8230

Recommended Posts

Hello, I own a Huawei U8230 and I am annoyed by the countless lock-ups and bugs the official room is causing. Huawei has filled the phone with junk, and at times it is slow as a turtle, and I can see all this s*** running in the background draining my battery much faster than I whould like.

Because of this i decided that I was going to try to root it, so I tried following this Guide in this section of the forum to install a custom ROM. However there is a problem, when i get to step:10 and choose flash zip from sdcard it says: E:Can't format SYSTEM... and E: failure at line 6: format SYSTEM Installation aborted. E: Can't mount CACHE:recovery/log and E:Can't open CACHE: recovery/log and E: Can't find MISC:

Hopefully someone can give me some answers and assistance, I whould appriciate it greatly.

Yes. that was my general idea also after hours of reading this forum. However my Windows 7 Proffesional wont allow me. When i try downloading z4root.zip or z4root.adb(or something like that) the operative system of the computer says it cannot read the sourcecode and therefore cannot store the file to my harddrive. I havent been able to find any solution to this on this forum or anywhere else online, it seems it is a rare problem, cause everybody talks of z4root as if there should be no problem...

Ah, so the real problem is that your computer is infected with a bad OS. ;)

If your phone still works, you can download it with that.

And to make your life really easy, here it is zipped up and ready to go: z4root.zip

You might just as well be on to something right there :P

I have been using facebook account to log in on this forum, so now i have made a local password so i can acces the forum from my phone. However, how do i unzip the the file when i download it directly to my phone? Cause i was actually able to download the file you posted, but when i try to extract/unzip the file, it says that the archive is damaged or something like that, i have tried using both 7zip and winrar to unzip it, both gives the same message.

Any hint to what is causing this? I guess it should not be a problem that i am running a 64 bit system and 64 bit unzipping programs, cause who aren't there days?

I'm still using 32 bit. :angry::rolleyes:

But then again, I can unzip the file I uploaded. I'm guessing it's Windows trying to "protect" you from the defilement of anything but Microsoft's own products and file formats. (Suggestion: consider Linux next time you go looking for a fully functional OS.):lol:

Hmm, which free filemanagers for Android can unzip files? Hold on........

.....yes, AndExplorer will unzip it. (I don't have the original filemanger installed anymore, so I don't know if it will.) First install AndExplorer from the Market. Then tap on the zip file you downloaded. It should unzip it to a new folder on your SD card. In there you will find z4root.apk and a "placeholder" file. The one you want is z4root.apk. ;)
