These are the steps you need to root the Huawei U8652 smartphone so you can install root-requiring apps from the Google Play Store. Once you complete the guide below, you will have full system access. The full system access to the root file system means you can tinker with the OS and run apps that require permissions to that file system. It also means you can accidentally delete files you need if you don’t know what you are doing. That’s why rooting should only be for advanced Android users.
