    to root the Y200 you buy in Australia. (and other international english versions) (probably all versions) works 100%. cant garuntee any other country, but this information is a mixture of badly translated instructions in a few different countries

    1. turn off "fast boot" in "applications" menu in settings

    2. turn on "USB debugging" in "Development" in "Applications " in settings


    and put it on your root SD card directory

    download on a WINDOWS computer

    and unzip file into a new folder


    when u have run the install adb exe , plug in ur phone to computer & a new drive will appear in my computer. install the adb program files choosing either win 7 or XP (2 choices)

    HAVE THE Rootv5.2.bat FILE from zip ready to run on computer

    turn off phone. remove battery for 5 seconds .

    now we will change to custom recovery mode.

    replace battery, plug in via usb to computer & hold "volume up" & power button on at same time until logo appears on screen

    release up vol & power button & then immediately press "volume down & power button & hold until logo freezes / stays on screen / doesnt progress beyond the logo
    (you may to continually hold power button and only swap between vol up & vol down as alternative)

    run the BAT file from the root zip file u extracted

    wait for 10 15 seconds, then press RETURN .... will say stuff, then pause press RETURN again, repeat once more. it should say finished (hopefully) (or similar)

    now u have mod recovery mode.

    make sure u copied the Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip file u downloaded above to the root directory of ur SD card.

    turn phone off.

    remove battery for 5 - 10 secs.

    replace battery. hold Volume up button & power button on for 15 seconds (or until a text menu appears)

    navigate menu with vol up & vol down keys , power button selects.
    select install zip file from sd card.
    select Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip .

    will run script for very short time & display success message.

    now your phone is rooted.

    recommend titanium backup for all software install, installs bloatware etc.
    if any system apps wont remove (gives error) BLOATWARE FREEZER should work.
