- These are the steps to root the Huawei Ascend G510-0100 smartphone. Applying the steps on your device will result in you voiding the warranty. You can anytime get that warranty to work again by unrooting the device. That requires a different guide.
- You may only follow this guide on a Windows computer. There’s an exception to that: it does not work on any Microsoft Windows Surface tablet that is running Windows RT for an operating system.
