    okay I was wondering, could it possibly be not rooting because of some applications I have installed?
    Probably not but just a thought

    Applications won't prevent phone from being rooted. Could be a bad download of the zip file....try to redownload it.

    well something is going wrong in the root process, I guess maybe what I need to do is paste the output I get when I do the Update from sd card, even though it says completed. It obvious is not.

    I also redownloaded the Update.zip from the site it told me


    I did not really think any applications would prevent root? but just a thought.

    Also, unlocking the bootloader will format the phone

    Thats standard practice when getting it unlocked from the manufacturer...HTC has the same thing

    okay

    not sure if this will work, but supposebly if I go into my phone to privacy settings and
    factory reset it will unlock the bootloader.

    I talked to a Huawei Tech support and they were insisting for awhile that
    they had no website to unlock the bootloader, Wrong!

    (so maybe by formatting/resetting phone to factory defaults) it will unlock the boot loader? shrug

    A factory reset will not unlock your bootlader. That will just wipe your phone to look like you just got bought it.

    maybe instead of trying to root it, I should just disable some auto app updates/etc
