Rooting the Huawei Honor Holly U19 means lots of great apps from the Google Play Store and other recommended sources online such as the App Brain website. One of the apps available is the LBE Privacy Guard. With the LBE Privacy Guard application running, you get something similar to a security firewall but for your apps. The LBE Privacy Guard will customize your permission settings with regards to the kind of data an app can take from your device.

Rooting the Huawei Honor Holly U19
- Make sure you have the USB Debugging Mode enabled on the Honor Holly u19 by pointing to the Menu > Settings > Developer Options > USB Debugging Mode.

By default it should end up in the Downloads folder unless you have changed your default Downloads location. Open that Downloads folder and click and drag the rooting exploit over to the desktop.

- Install the ADB Installer 1.4.2 on the computer.
- Install the Handset_WinDriver_1.00.00.31 on the computer.
- Install the DriverAutoInstaller_v1.1236.00 on the computer.
