Alert!

As always make sure that Rooting is all about modifying the system files of your phone and there is always a risk of damaging your phone by doing so. HuaweiNews.com isn’t liable for any damages that may occur so proceed at your own risk.

You need a software called “Root Genius” to do this. This guide will work on Ascend P7-L10 , P7-L00 and many other variants. However always proceed at your own risk.

Steps you need to follow

1. Make sure you have Huawei HiSuite installed on your computer because it will install all the USB drivers needed for your PC to communicate with the P7. Latest HiSuite can be found here – http://huaweinews.com/2014/03/hisuite-update-kitkat/

2. After installing HiSuite check if your Ascend P7 connects with it correctly. And then you can close the program.

3. Download the Root Genius program from its official web site and install it on your PC – http://goo.gl/F68OYN
