Rooting your huawei Y210D SmartPhone. Plus clockwork recovery.



Facebook Fan Page for the Huawei Y210D Click Here

Before goin in to recovery mode or fastboot mode untick the fast boot option in settings>application setting's.

First on all the essentials that you will require to root your phone are


The phone driver. Download Here (device Drivers)


Y210D Rooting Files. Download Here (package contains SU Binary, BusyBox,Super user Binary and root Explorer.)

Optional if you only want to install CWM Here is the link Download Here (this contains only cwm, to install connect you phone in fastboot mode, power it off the switch it on by holding VOL Down + Power (for 10 seconds) and Run the Recovery-here.bat file in the Archive. (fastboot mode only shows a logo and remains stuck at that)

To boot in to cwm recovery switch off your phone and start it while holding the volume up and power button for 10 seconds. use recovery menu using vloume up and volume down button and use power button to select options.Touch does not work in recovery.

Let's Get Started with rooting :

1)install the drivers for your phone, given above.

2)In you phone setting's enable unknown sources, and usb debugging.

3)Also disable fastboot option in your phone settings.

4)remove any cables attached to your phone power off the device and remove the battery.

5)now reinsert the battery and keep the volume down (-) button pressed, now with vol down pressed press the power button. leave the power button but keep the volume down button pressed, for about 10 second's. After ten secs you can release all the button''s.

6)your phone is now in fastboot mode, attach the data cable to the the phone and make sure the drivers are installed properly to your device from Device Manager.

7)Now extract the rooting files to your hard disk and tun the Runme.bat file inside "Huawei Y210D Rooter.rar"

Follow the onscreen instruction, this proccess will take about 3 minutes and your phone will be restarted once, till the phone restarts do not switch off the pc or remove the data cable. After phone has restarted Your phone will be rooted and CWM will be installed Automatically.

8) to boot in to CMW power off the phone and press the volume up (+) and power button. keep the volume up pressed for 10 second's and you will be in to recovery. :) Enjoy Your phone.

  9. @Charis another user had this problem because he used this on his y210 and not y210d,so which model is your phone?

    @hambil here is the stock rom for y210d,http://www.mediafire.com/?a49tq95y9g4cd4p you have to extract the dload folder in the rar to your sd and go to settings>storage>update from sd card and give it two minutes. you can also do it through cwm but the above link is for in bluilt flashing.

    ReplyDelete
  10. @hambil the above stock rom is from viettel network, so it is customized a little you can just root it and remove the bloatware. Cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Thank you Kelan. My model is y210 0100 u8685d. I have worked it out now. I downloaded and flashed my phone to build 829... then downloaded the boot image and replaced the insecureboot.img from the y210d rooting files. :D thanks again. your tutorial was an inspiration . cheers

    ReplyDelete
  12. @charis Thank you for the kind word's, i would appreciate it if you would share your links to the y210 stock rom and insecure boot image, so that other's user's can help themselves.

  15. something wrong with the drivers, the drivers wont get installed on the device

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hambil @STOCK ROM'S AND CUSTOM ROM WILL BE UP SHORTLY, @jonathan More details about your problem (screenshot's,your os etc etc) will be useful to sort your problem, Because those driver's are working for everyone else.

    ReplyDelete
  17. using winxp device manager shows a yellow question mark beside Android Device. Cant seem to install the drivers properly. thanks

    ReplyDelete
  18. @jonathan you may try these driver's http://www.mediafire.com/?ko6klr2er99n9ri

    but before doing that remove all other android driver's you may have installed, also try a different usb port on your computer. Hope it work's.

    ReplyDelete
  19. @ Ketan

    The g300 drivers worked! Now phone rebooted and the dos window says "Now waiting for phone to root". will leave it for a while and hopefully it gets rooted.

    ReplyDelete
  20. anyway to increase ram or play games like temple run?

    ReplyDelete
  21. @hambil only way to do that would be to remove most of the apps that consume memory, while keeping the functionality of the phone intact and the other option is to use swap memory but sadly it requires init.d support in kernel, which is no there in the stock kernel, my efforts to start init.d using universal init.d apk went in vain as none of swapping apps like swapper,swapper 2 etc worked. may be an swap partition would have worked but i did not want to partition my sd card.

  24. I installed the barebones stock rom but unable to install the Gapps,i tried every method u described,its one and a half day I am sitting next to my pc continuously.Please do something for it.
    OR
    is there any ways to rollback to previous rom (the factory made),I just want the root access not any custom rom. please resolve my problem

    ReplyDelete
  25. @maBalasik it will work but before doing that install cwm Recovery and do a nand back up . Then you can try rooting it without any risk. incase something goes wrong u can restore to stock.

    @avi stock rom for you country may not be available do you can use the other rom Viettel telecom, which is stock except for some inbuilt apps which may differ frm country to country. rest is same. only need to change the language to english.

    I suggest you flash the custom rom provided here http://huaweiy210d.blogspot.in/2013/04/y210d-custom-rom-cwm-recovery-flashable.html

    which is fully stock except for added root user support, so you dont need to root it after installing. flash it through CWM. and change the language to english, install titanium backup and remove what ever inbuilt apps you dont need.

    NOTE : ALWAYS TAKE A NAND BACKUP BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY MODS OR ROM'S TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE. INSTALLIN CWM RECOVERY DOESNT REQUIRE ROOTING YOUR PHONE FIRST. YOU CAN INTALL CWM WITHOUT ROOTING. BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP THE NAND.

  32. @Mabalasik install Cwm following steps given above then go to advanced and then back up and restore and backup your system, that backup is called nand backup. disable fastboot option in phone settings before trying to boot in to fastboot mode. that is switch off> switch on with volume down pressed. phone will stop at a logo, that is fastboot mode,

    ReplyDelete

  35. @mabalasik if your phone is stuck at boot logo for long time after pressing volume down + power then it is in fastboot mode, it wont boot further, just install cwm take backup then root.

    @clark I'll try to make a video in couple of days.

    1. I rooted my phone with this file: http://www.mediafire.com/download/vyn7mv413nnm3cv/poot-debug.apk

      And with these instructions:

      1) Go to settings > application > preferred install location > Internal device storage.

      2) Install poot.apk in "internal memory" of your Phone. Don't open it. Click on "done" once its installed.

      3) Then go to settings > storage > unmount sd card.

      4) Go to your phone menu and copy the Poot app to the homescreen of ur mob, then go to ur phone menu and open the poot app then it will require you to install Ministro II, Simply follow the link to Google play store.

      5) Then you will be required to update ministro library, please update it.

      6) Once you updated the Ministro Library then you will be faced with two options;
      1. “Press here to Poot”
      2. “Built in root check”

      7) Click on the first option which is “Press here to Poot” and after a while, ur phone screen will get black.

      Once ur screen got black and u r not able to do anything then remove da battery nd switch on ur mob.

      9) While memory card is checking by the phone then hurrily open the poot app which is on the homescreen of your mobile and click on "press here to poot".

      10) Then u should get three options will be listed thus;
      1. Get Superuser
      2. Get root-checker
      3. In-built rootchecker

      When you see these options it simply means your HUAWEI has been rooted successfully. Then visit Google Play Store and download Superuser app and Root checker.
