The term rooting Android means gaining complete access to the internal system like getting administrator permissions from a Windows operating system.
The reason being is that many apps from the Google Play Store need these root access permissions to run. The things you can do with apps that require root access are usually far greater than any ordinary app available from the Google Play Store. It would be the equivalent of a Super hero applications with a Super Man cape.
The Files You Need
- Download the Poot APK from Android Forums on this page.
- Download the Ministro 2 APK file from the Android Forums page here.
- These are the steps to root the Huawei Ascend 2 Straight Talk smartphone. The following guide doers void the manufacturer’s warranty. However, you can get that same warranty working again by removing the root access and running the stock ROM. Of course, unrooting means saying goodbye to all of the wonderful extra apps you have been using with the root access.
- Make sure you enable the Unknown Sources option by heading to the Menu > Settings > Security and enable Unknown sources.

- Connect the Huawei Ascend 2 to the computer using the USB cable.
- Drag and drop the two files over to the root of the SD card folder of your device.
- Unplug the smartphone from the computer once you are finished.
- Open any File manager on your device. If you don’t have one yet, you’ll need to download one from the Google Play Store. We won’t tell you which one to get because some are free and some cost money. You can find decent free open source options out there for a File Manager. Just make sure you download from a trusted source so you don’t end up with malware or adware on your device, which could come bundled in the free file.
- Launch the Poot app from the app drawer.
- Select the ‘Press here To Poot’ button after the files download.
- Once you click that button, the Poot app will start rooting your device.

- Open the Google Play Store app on your smartphone and sign into your Google account so you can download apps.
- Search for the SuperUser application and install the app.
Optional: you may install the root checker app and see if the guide worked for you the first time.
