unlocked rooted my Huawei u8100-9 Android phone.
This is NOT the same as unlocking; turns out I was still tied to Wind after the following procedures. What is explained below is how to get access to "superuser" account on your phone (step 1) and make its CPU run faster (step 2).
I will put the instructions, and where I learned them from, below.
These instructions will be geared towards Ubuntu Linux as the computer, but Windows & Mac will be addressed.
Once the Celestial Tea Cup (CTC) over-clocking ROM has been flashed, I'll put those instructions up too.
I've purchased unlock code from http://www.instantunlockcodes.com/canada/ - just awaiting delivery.
