    HUAWEI Mercury



    To root or not to root

    I just bought the Mercury and love how it runs. There are two problems I'm having. 1) When I am at home wifi is on, however it drops off after sometime when not in use and to get it to work again I have to turn on/off airplane mode. 2) When I update *228 I lose all widgets of my screens.(or when phone starts running very slow) Why?

    Also what are the benefits or rooting? Well it make the phone run faster/stable? After root can I put different versions of android?

    If you don't know what rooting is. Do not root. If you don't know what rooting does. Do not root. If you still want to root. Google search what rooting means and the Pros and Cons. So far there is no other android version for the mercury yet. Rooting will not solve any issues. It just..... roots.

    I think that's a "feature". I went under settings and chose "stay awake" which works for keeping wifi alive.

    My 1st phone would not keep Widgets on reboot. I then rooted and later did a factory reset only to have the phone come back with no launcher. Had to pay $20 and get a new one.

    My ascend one has the no launcher problem alot.. all I do is wait for a text or have someone text me. From there on just type Google.com or have them send me a link of whatever. From there I download launcherpro.apk
