Huawei Ascend y200 (u8655) Root
to root the Y200 you buy in Australia. (and other international english versions) (probably all versions) works 100%. cant garuntee any other country, but this information is a mixture of badly translated instructions in a few different countries
1. turn off "fast boot" in "applications" menu in settings
2. turn on "USB debugging" in "Development" in "Applications " in settings
and put it on your root SD card directory
download on a WINDOWS computer
and unzip file into a new folder
RUN THE INSTALL adb EXE FILE
when u have run the install adb exe , plug in ur phone to computer & a new drive will appear in my computer. install the adb program files choosing either win 7 or XP (2 choices)
HAVE THE Rootv5.2.bat FILE from zip ready to run on computer
turn off phone. remove battery for 5 seconds .
now we will change to custom recovery mode.
replace battery, plug in via usb to computer & hold "volume up" & power button on at same time until logo appears on screen
release up vol & power button & then immediately press "volume down & power button & hold until logo freezes / stays on screen / doesnt progress beyond the logo
(you may to continually hold power button and only swap between vol up & vol down as alternative)
run the BAT file from the root zip file u extracted
wait for 10 15 seconds, then press RETURN .... will say stuff, then pause press RETURN again, repeat once more. it should say finished (hopefully) (or similar)
now u have mod recovery mode.
make sure u copied the Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip file u downloaded above to the root directory of ur SD card.
turn phone off.
remove battery for 5 - 10 secs.
replace battery. hold Volume up button & power button on for 15 seconds (or until a text menu appears)
navigate menu with vol up & vol down keys , power button selects.
select install zip file from sd card.
select Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip .
will run script for very short time & display success message.
now your phone is rooted.
recommend titanium backup for all software install, installs bloatware etc.
if any system apps wont remove (gives error) BLOATWARE FREEZER should work.

Can someone please upload a video of how they rooted theirs? Either my phone has no fastboot mode or im retarded. Either way, a video would help way more.
