Bought this phone a year ago for Ksh.8,000. It offers better than it costs. Rooted it, installed a new rom that can play Temple Run (Classic and Oz), the CPU can be overclocked to 1 Ghz. This phone is amazing in the right hands. For the battery, I have no problem with once a day charge.
How to Root Y100
I tried to root first, I got super user, but something was wrong and I couldnt delete preinstaled apps.
Than I have instaled custom Rom, it was a piece of cake, I have friezed a few apps, for now, before deleting them for good, also installed the link2sd and everything works flawlessly.
But I hope nothing go wrong, because no valid garanty anymore.
One way of creating extra internal storage is to remove updates from large apps like Youtube and Documents to go.You will get extra 30 mb and it wont affect the running of those apps.
Plz tell me also that how did you root your Huawei Ascend Y100?
Kindly e-mail me the proccess
