Root your Huawei Honor (U8860) running ICS (Singapore)

As you have known from my earlier post, the official ICS firmware is already out. After installing it, what follows next is to root it. This is for those who knows what they are doing, not for the faint-hearted. By rooting your device, you will gain full access to the registry and etc as you are running as a super user. Then you are able to remove useless apps that comes in the default fw.

The current root tool for B923 works for the local B935 too. Follow the simple steps below to unroot your phone.

  1. Download the root tool for Huawei Honor (U8860) ICS here to your computer.
  2. Connect your phone to your computer. Ensure that the ADB driver is installed.
  3. Turn off fast-boot and also enable USB debugging on your phone.
  4. Extract the root tool to your computer and run root-me.cmd
  5. Follow the instruction in the pop-up cmd prompt.
  6. If everything runs well, your phone should be rooted now.

Now, your phone should contain an app known as “Superuser”. You can also download the app, Root Checker, from Google Play to verify.

    Hi, rooting B935 in Honor is easy. However to custom ROM is a no go. DO you know how to mod for custom ROM?

      Apart from MIUI that is released for Huawei Honor ICS (China), I don’t see any others. Do you? My friend did try the MIUI one earlier but didn’t find it stable, with quite a bit of bugs. As this is my official phone for work, I did not try loading any custom ROM.
