Today’s guide is all about HTC One Mini 601e’s rooting. This procedure is one to deliver a wide range of new stuff. Included are many ways of improving the device’s battery life, performance and so on. If that sounds great, then jump in and get your phone rooted!

When you’re thinking of having a handset with root access, SRSRoot is the tool we recommend. This one is a dedicated app which can be downloaded for free from a certain website; we’ll discuss where to get it from later. First, some words on what makes this app so special.

Besides not having to pay for it, this app is powered by an SRS Server. Should the need be, use it as an unrooting option. The tool we used doesn’t only work with your HTC One Mini. There are a lot more devices you can root with it. And you don’t have to be afraid of losing your phone’s OS after the rooting’s over; the SRSRoot is available with every one of the Android versions ever devised.HTC-One-Mini-601e

The benefits of this method

This rooting post uses this Build ID: JDQ39. This application lets you use other Build IDs if you so want. Launched last year, your phone’s CPU is a dual-core 1.4 GHz Krait 200 type. When it’s rooted, the processor is going to speed up by a lot. Superuser and admin permission are only some of the novelties you’ll be able to enjoy via the root access.

They will be joined by these goodies: new features together with root-only apps. More to come, specifically these: custom ROMs. Battery life will expand a lot, too. The handset will be very easy to customize, as well.

Having root access means no bloatware, either. The SRSRoot app will make sure that your smartphone contains no viruses when you’re done rooting it.

A procedure of this kind will leave marks. The cons that come with it will only happen if you want to update the phone. If you have root access on it, the upgrade shall revoked it. System partition will then be erased. No other important content will be affected. Once the smartphone’s functioning with root access, its warranty will have to be revoked. If you look online, you’ll find a way to have it back.


We recommend performing these crucial requirements now:

  • protect the data on your HTC One Mini 601e by making sure standard backups are created;
  • a full NANDroid backup is also a must-have, so perform one;
  • your smartphone needs a fully charged battery if you want to follow this guide without running into trouble;
  • the notebook’s operating system must always be Windows;
  • your notebook should have USB drivers compatible with your phone ;
  • they are on this page (download them from there on your device);
  • launch, on the handset, the security software it’s running;
  • after it’s launched, make sure it’s all deactivated;
  • open the security programs on your laptop;
  • turn them off for this rooting.

  1. You need to start by going to the place that has the SRSRoot app. That place is here. Click on a download button you’ll spot once you’re on that site.
  2. The app’s download on your notebook will now begin. And, when the download process ends, you can install the application and then open it on the notebook.
