    ive had my metropcs huawei ascend M860 for at least a couple years now.a couple months ago I upgraded my software to froyo 2.2 using the ascend software update from the metro app store. but now I decided I would like to root my phone so that I may increase its performance by deleting a few of the system apps that I don't use. so far I have tried the Z4root.apk and gingerbreakv1.2.apk. I havent been able to find gingerbreakv1.30. but anyway I have made sure that my usb debug mode is checked and that my SD card is mounted. I even transferred all the data from my sd card to my computer via wireless wifi tethering. so my sd card is formatted as well. but still nothing has worked. it will not root my phone. can someone please explain to me what I am doing wrong or if I am leaving out a step? I have been trying all of these ways without my phone being plugged into the usb port into my computer. will the root only work if the phone is connected to the computer via usb port?

    Gingerbreak wont work (I don't think because you are not on 2.3 which is Gingerbread) however some say it works with 2.2
    All sites I have checked said to use Z4Root

    When you says it wont root, do you get an error message? Does it finish but there is no SuperUser app in your app drawer?

    Well, sometimes, yes it runs for eithwr a short time or sometimes ten or fifteen minutes, then just goes back to my homescreen with no superuser or anything. And a couple times , it just kept running .
