One-click rooting tools are first choice for everyone who want to get their phone rooted. But the success rates aren’t that higher, and it’s a matter of few more attempts before you get your hands dirtier. You are left with no choice than to go the manual way of rooting.


If you had no success in rooting the Huawei Ideos X5 by the one-click rooting methods like the famous DoomLord’s script, then here is a manual way which can do the work for you. Credits goes to android user dancer_69 of XDA forums.



  1. On your Ideos V5, dial *#*#2846579#*#*
  2. Go to projectmenu > background settings > log settings > log switch > set Log on
  3. Reboot the Phone
  4. Go to Settings > Applications > Development and enable USB Debuggingmode
  5. Go to Settings > Applications and disable Fast Bootmode.
  6. Launch Command Prompt and navigate to the ADB folder where adb.exe is located. If you have added path to system variables in Windows, you don’t have to navigate.
  7. Run the following commands one at a time.

adb push c:\DoomLordRoot.v3\files\zergRush /data/local/tmp/

adb shell

chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/zergRush


Hit CTRL+C to exit from adb shell

adb push c:\DoomLordRoot.v3\files\busybox /data/local/tmp/

adb shell

chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/busybox

/data/local/tmp/busybox mount -o remount,rw /system

dd if=/data/local/tmp/busybox of=/system/xbin/busybox

chown /system/xbin/busybox

chmod 04755 /system/xbin/busybox

/system/xbin/busybox –install -s /system/xbin

rm -r /data/local/tmp/busybox

Hit CTRL+C to exit again from adb shell

adb push c:\DoomLordRoot.v3\files\su /system/bin/su

adb shell

chown /system/bin/su

chmod 06755 /system/bin/su

rm /system/xbin/su

ln -s /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su

Hit CTRL+C to exit once more from adb shell

adb push c:\DoomLordRoot.v3\files\Superuser.apk /system/app/

adb shell

cd /data/local/tmp/

rm *


That’s it. Your phone should now be rooted. To confirm, check the Superuser app installed in it.
