Instructions

This part is where we take you on a ride through what steps to follow if you wish to root your device.

  1. So before anything else, download the following on your PC: Root Package. Once this is both downloaded and after that saved on your device (you should choose its desktop for this), you should make sure to extract the content the rooting package lands on your notebook with (any unzipping will do the job).
  2. Now grab a good hold of the USB cable which is in the same box as your smartphone; with it you need to plug your P9060 to your personal comp.
  3. Then, once the connection has been successfully achieved (which will happen after “Added!!” and one yellow ID:COM box both pop on the screen), your next task will need to be performed like this: double-click on a package called Superoneclick.
  4. After that, we urge you to open the root app on the laptop’s desktop and then wait for about a few seconds. Once the wait is over at last, you will see a set of guidelines on the display. You must follow all of them, because that is how you will manage to root your phone the only right way there is to do so.
  5. The rooting will then start after you are done with all the instructions we mentioned just earlier. There is a way to see if the Pantech Pocket P9060 really is rooted or not: grab an app from Google Play Store; its name is Root Checker and it’s very reliable.
