The rooting tool we wish to use on Huawei C8813D in this guide was created of by a Chinese developer. The name of the tool is VRoot and it offers support for any device that runs Android 4.0 – 4.3 (the tool is able to work with devices running Gingerbread too).
What you should know about the VRoot is that it doesn’t require a ton of previous knowledge to get it on your tablet. So even if you aren’t accustomed to this sort of procedure, the rooting tool we will use will make everything easy to deal with. And, once the C8813D features this rooting method, you will notice many great things. You will, for one, be able to get root-only apps for your tablet, improve how it performs, tweak it via numerous options and so on.
One of the things that you should keep in mind for the rooting guide: you won’t have to look around for a custom recovery to flash on your device, but a computer is absolutely needed. What you should also know is the following: the VRoot will not flash SuperSU or superuser on your handset.
How to install vRoot tool
The way to install the VRoot on your Windows based computer does not need steps which are too difficult to follow. If you’ve never updated a gadget until now, don’t be scared: the VRoot is one of the rooting tools which don’t pose difficulty when the owner of a device has to flash it. And our tutorial will be laid out in such a manner that you will have the VRoot on your Huawei C8813D very soon; also, all of the great things about this tool will be ready to reveal themselves when you are done with our rooting guide.
For starters, the VRoot needs to land on your PC. For that to happen, go here and look for this particular file: VRoot_1.6.0.exe. Then make sure you download and save it on the comp we told you to keep close by. When done with this part, you should open the VRoot. After that, root your C8813D with the guide we have in store for you next.
The flashing of the VRoot on your PC has to follow some steps. Each of them is described in the lines underneath:
- the VRoot_1.6.0.exe must be launched first via the double click method, then you have to find wait for “Next” to appear;
- when you see the latter, tap it and then click on it again;
- “Don’t create a Start Menu folder” will be displayed afterwards;
- you have to click on it;
- now tap “Next” when you see it again;
- click on “Create a desktop icon” and on “Next”;
- “Completing the ROOT” should be on the screen, so tap “Finish” (in case you don’t want to open the file after you are done with this, uncheck the box that has “Launch ROOT” as its message).
How to root your device
That was all for the VRoot file manager installation. On to the actual rooting of your phone:
- After you launch the VRoot_188.8.131.5290, you have to sit still;
- Then, when a message comes on-screen, it’s time to plug your devices one to the other (we used the phone’s USB cord for this, so you should use the same means);
- Then continue by waiting until the C8813D is recognized by your own PC;
- The VRoot file should still be running in the meantime, so check to make sure it does;
- Then, if everything goes smoothly, you should be shown an image with the name of your gadget on the comp’s display (this means that the plugging went without a glitch);
- Search for a green button which contains “Root” and press it (it’s situated in the window’s bottom right side);
- Wait until the rooting phase commences.
If you notice that your Huawei C8813D refuses to plug to your comp, you should try this quick solution: look for those USB drivers compatible with your phone. Flash them on your PC and the connection should take place as intended.
The rooting phase needs about 2 minutes. While these minutes tick, you shouldn’t disconnect the phone from your comp. A message that will pop up on the screen will tell you when the device is rooted and ready to restart. After all of this happens, you can allow your gadget to separate itself from your personal computer and enjoy the advantages that the VRoot will bring!
Optional: How to install SuperSU
The next guide is optional, but it’s needed in case you want to get rid of a Chinese root manager whose name starts with some weird Chinese characters then 1.0.4. To replace it, you will have to flash SuperSU, an app. Here’s how:
- go to Play Store;
- look for the app there;
- download and flash it on your C8813D;
- launch it;
- wait till the weird 1.0.4 tool asks you for permission;
- opt for the button it’s on the right side and it means “Allow”);
- click on “OK” when you’ll be asked to flash the SU binary;
- make sure you freeze Chinese 1.0.4 tool in titanium backup;
- make sure you run, again, the SuperSU app (the latter means that you should wait for a message which tells you that you need to install this app again);
- your Huawei C8813D is going to be rooted with the app in question.
When you freeze the Chinese 1.0.4 tool, you should keep this in mind: in case you want to wish to uninstall from App Manager, you should first see if the SuperSU has made an update of the binary.
