    MY ASS!
    Hi have unfortunately bought the Android phone Kyocera Hydro Wave. While the phone is meh in general, it has sp many bugs with the kernel and sometimes opens applications happening. I got the phone n 2015 and got another phone in the next 3 months because its that bad. Before I keep talking crap about my old phone ( because it really sucks!!!!!!) I was wondering if I could root it?

    Problem is I did a little research and use certain applications and it said "root failed". Does anyone ever rooted the phone because please tell me how? Also if people have some suggestions that would help:huh:

    Which applications have you tried?

    I generally use Kingo Root when trying to root something new

    I would really love to offer some advice and help you right here in the forum, but i have to admit that this place might simply not be the best place to ask such specific questions relating to mobile phones.

    I would highly advise you to google "xda-developers". The world largest community centered around mobile phones, firmwares and hacking.

    This might be, in this case, a better place to ask for assistance.

    I'm aware that my phone is crap so I'm mainly doing this to replace my current firmware and maybe install Linux (if I feel like). Anyhow thanks for the link I'll check it out

    I second this suggestion. If it CAN be rooted, then XDA will have the info!
