I own a Huawei Ascend P1 smartphone (U9200, unlocked, international version, still original Android 4.0.3 factory build B003). During about a year that I have the phone, it started being much slower and I decided that it's time to upgrade the software. Before I will embark on that journey, I want to backup my information using Titanium Backup. However, as you know, it requires root permissions. Therefore, I have the following questions for you today:
1) Could you point me to verified (trusted!) instructions on rooting this particular phone? I found these instructions on the XDA site, but they talk about rooting P1 with Android 4.1.1, so not sure, if it's safe to proceed: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2450306.
2) Do I need to separately unlock bootloader (S-OFF) and, if yes, could you point to verified instructions for P1?
Your advice will be very much appreciated!
