    New Root Method No Pc - Credit to MyFormIsCrack over on the rise forums

    Sorry for the duplicate post I can't change the Title in the other post "New Firmware update - root problems" , So I am starting a new thread.

    After trying several methods.. I was able to Root using POOT. Bin4ry's root method did not work for me (I Tried V2, v17, V18) And seeing as I rooted the Hydro over 10 times successfully prior to the Update I thought this would help others.

    more info here:

    New Root Method No Pc

    Prior even posting how can I make this my own thread instead of being sticked especially when I'm the only one so far who has this?

    On my initial/first reply was solely asking to have this as a seperate thread and not being moved by a mod into the sticky.Basically you do the following:

    1)Enable usb debugging in dev ops

    2)Download poot: http://db.tt/0HqxEURT

    3)Download minstro 2 from store

    4)Download superuser from store

    5)Run poot

    6)Pushes su to xbin

    7)Go into superuser and update binary (I skipped this step for some reason I lose root after doing this)

    8)If done right you now have root

    9)For testing on already rooted phones use temp unroot through superuser and repeat

    this worked for the rise, and for me for the hydro. Bin4ry's root I could not get to work (after the "Kyocera Update Tool" downloaded and installed new formware ) hope this helps someone here.

    If I helped you hit the thanks button!

      ok i used this process to root my hydro and it worked great and then installed systemcleanup and disabled a bunch of apps and still works just fine. but i was just curious as to cwm recovery. couldnt you just download rom manager and just install cwm recovery through that and get it to work or will it brick the phone?

      was just wondering if you need to keep poot and ministro2 after your are rooted or can you uninstall them?

      I heard from many developers that bootloder of this phone is locked, so putting recovery is near to impossible
