Android Phone

Hi guys

 

Just got a Huawei ascend G510. (Android 4.1.1)

 

Can I root it to Lollipop somehow? 5+

 

Anyone know if it's possible? - Been searching online, all I find is scam sites so far :/

Very old, very unpopular model. 

 

You should do research before buying Android Phones.  :mellow:

Have you checked out XDA Developers?

No I haven't, but will do. Thanks! :lol:

 

No. Buy a more popular phone model next time. More users = more custom ROMs.

Awww too bad :(

Didn't buy it, got it from my brother. He got a new Huawei P8, top of the line model I think.

you can get it to android 4.4.2

 

edit: its a nightly build, that hasnt been updated in a while, so it may not be totally stable

I think I have it on 4.4.1 or 4.4.2, is there any big difference or reason to play with it then?

Cyanogenmod may have something.

XDA is your best bet though, AOSP may have something, also watch it with Android 5+ there is device encryption on the OS, if your CPU does not support it (Which I doubt it will) It will slow down the I/O and make the system laggy, so you would then need to patch the system to run without encryption.

Chances are it wont, only really recent devices (late 2014 I believe) support it, I believe both new Tegras, Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Series, Exynos 5+ (Maybe) I am unsure on media tek, but don't quote me on this I could be way off.

There are scripts you can install to disable it but it wipes the device and then reinstalls Android, if its done to a Google version of Android (Not Rooted) it will disable updates completely.
