While there isn’t an official custom recovery image out yet for the Huawei Y5 Y560-U02 smartphone for people to flash a stable SuperSU package, there is a one-click rooting tool made available that at least allows people to be the root user. The root user account is blocked off by default by Google developers because they do not want to allow malware the chance to roam around the Android operating system. Unfortunately, that means blocking off access to the root user account. For anyone who wants to use the smartphone as the root user, they must follow a guide that is made for Rooting the Huawei Y5 Y560-U02 smartphone.

The following guide uses a universal one-click rooting tool called KingRoot. It was developed out of China and users the KingUser to grant the rooting permissions and not Chainfire’s SuperSU that we often see in other one-click rooting tools like the popular CF-Auto-Root. Still, the KingUser can grant the rooting permissions much the same way as the SuperSU, and you can expect to find al lof your root applications working after you complete the guide.
