    Hey Ave...I'm just posting here to ask because it's semi related. If I wanted to root this phone, would I still be able to keep the supplied Cricket image? Or would I have to put something like CM 7 on it?

    If you just root the phone, everything will stay the same, except you will have administrative access privelges. If you put something like CM7 on your phone, the boot screen may change. You would need to talk to the developer and ask if you could keep the Cricket bootscreen.

    Huawei Mercury Rooting

    Just starting this thread as a place holder for any findings on how to root the phone.

    ---------- Post added at 08:30 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:24 PM ----------

    Probably the first step is getting the drivers so that adb could be used.

    I meant the drivers for the PC so that debugging will work (required for adb).

    OK maybe I misspoke. Theres a folder called adb drivers on the phone but I cant get it to connect...yet.

    ---------- Post added at 06:32 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:06 PM ----------

    Found the drivers on Huawei's site. I have adb shell connected to the Mercury. Rooting should be a snap.

    ---------- Post added at 06:33 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:32 PM ----------

    Here's where I got the drivers Softwares tab, second one on the list.
    Downloads - Huawei Device Co., Ltd..

    Installed the drivers you suggested, enabled debugging on phone and connected phone to PC. Debugging still not working. ADB devices shows nothing.

    ---------- Post added at 10:04 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:44 PM ----------

    N'mind. Got it. Had to run the Driver-tools app to actually install the driver. This is what I get for doing 7 things at once.

    Can't really yet. All the phones I have are in my inventory. Haven't pulled the trigger and taken personal possession of one yet. I don't want to mess with a phone I will sell quite yet.

    Of course I might feel different tomorrow.

    check out the root method used on the LG Esteem and Revolution and see if things look like it might work. Sure the exploit works on some other phones but dont what they are. lol

    Gingerbreak doesn't do the trick.

    To which method for the LG phones are you referring? One site I pulled up used rageagainstthecage, and as stated earlier, no luck with that method.
