What do you need in order to root the Huawei U8665?

To root the Huawei U8665you will need the following:

  • The Huawei U8665 you want to root in your hand
  • A PC

Step 1 – Download the Huawei U8665 root file

In order to root the Huawei U8665 you need to download the root file first and save it to your PC. You can get it from here. When you have downloaded it make a folder on your desktop called ‘Huawei Fusion 2’ and extract the contents to that folder.

Step 2 – Download the Huawei U8665 drivers

So that your PC recognises the Huawei U8665 when you connect it to your PC you must install the correct drivers. Simply download the driver file from here and then extract and run it to start installation.

Step 3 – Boot the phone in to Fastboot mode

Using the root file requires putting the Huawei U8665 in to Fastboot mode.

  1. Turn off the phone completely.
  2. Hold down the Volume Down button and the power button at the same time and wait for the phone to boot up.
  3. Note: Keep the buttons pressed for at least 10 – 20 seconds. If done properly the phone will stop at the ATT logo and look like it has frozen (it will go no further) – this is normal and means it is now in Fastboot mode.

Step 4 – Root the Huawei U8665

Now that the Huawei U8665 is in Fastboot mode connect the phone to your computer.

Go to the ‘Huawei Fusion 2’ folder on your desktop from step 1. It should contain the rooting files.

Double-click the file titled ‘runme.bat’. A command prompt window will appear.

In the window that appears type the following:

fastboot flash recovery recovery.superrecovery.img and press Enter when done.

Note: Wait for the process to finish and display the total time taken before moving on.

This will flash the custom recovery file to the phone allowing you to root it.

When the process has completely finished (it may take some time) unplug the Huawei U8665 from your PC.

Remove the battery from the Huawei U8665 and leave it for 30 seconds.

Reinsert the battery. Now that you have done that you need to boot the phone in to recovery mode (the custom recovery you just flashed to it will now load).

  1. Turn off the phone completely.
  2. Hold down the Volume Up button and the power button at the same time and wait for the phone to boot up.

The phone will now be in recovery mode.

With the Huawei U8665 in recovery mode simply select the ‘Reboot Phone Now’ option (use the volume up and down buttons to select and the power button to confirm).

Wait for the Huawei U8665 to reboot.

Once it has rebooted it will be rooted.

Simply look for a new application installed called SuperSU as a signal that the rooting process was done successfully.
