QUESTION: How to root the Huawei STREAM X GL07S?

Huawei GL07S

1 Answer 1

  1. Find a Linux or Windows computer
  2. Download and unzip http://gl07s.nakayuki.net/public/emobile-gl07s-root.zip
  3. Install the Android SDK tools, in particular the commands adb and fastboot should be available (fastboot for Windows is provided in the ZIP).
  4. Connect your GLS07S via a USB cable
  5. Run sudo ./root.sh on Linux, or root.bat on Windows
  6. Three lines of text in Japanese appear. Press Enter
  7. White noise appears on the screen, just wait patiently
  8. One more line of text in Japanese appears. Press Enter
  9. When the command prompt returns, you're done

(Translated from the README in the ZIP above)

Before step 5 I had to add the following line as line 2 of root.sh because my Android SDK is installed at the user level on my Linux computer, you should not need it if you install the Android SDK as admin.

export PATH="${PATH}:/home/nico/android-sdk/tools:/home/nico/android-sdk/platform-tools"

Be patient. The execution lasts for a few minutes, with this output (press Enter when it says 続行するにはエンターを押してください):

$ sudo ./root.sh
