    I tried jrummy's ROM toolbox a while ago. I liked it, but used it for a few days before uninstalling. Didn't care for the extra tweaking options. It does have options for customizing the phone that are good, though. As for battery saving apps... I don't bother with them anymore, frankly. Most of them (in my experience) randomly lock up the phone when switching 3G/wifi ON while coming out of sleep mode. I just use a toggle app, Notification Toggle. That allows me to control 3G, wifi and data syncing manually from the notification menu. Most of the time I leave 3g and wifi off (which saves a good deal of battery), unless absolutely needed. With the app I just mentioned, it's easy to turn them back on when needed without going through setup menus.

    Are you sure? Did you use a root checker app, or type su in a terminal? The terminal method is the best to check for root. It will show you a # if you have root.

    As for the poster that asked about battery apps... Did some research. Found green power to work the best. Just uncheck the S2 option, uncheck autosync, and make sure the 3g/wifi comes back on as soon as the screen is turned on.

    Thanks dear cole, my question is, whats next should i dwnld an tether app? and which one do you recommand
    The one I use is simply called WiFi Tether with a yellow WiFi symbol from the PlayStore. I have tried over a half dozen and this one seems to stay connected the best (When trying to wireless tether with other programs they seem to lose connection when the phone (c5155-Virgin Rise) takes back turning on WiFi. I have not figured out how to stop the phone from randomly turning WiFi back on by itself so you get randomly disconnected from other WiFi apps. (You want WiFi turned OFF if you are tethering other devices to use your 3G connection because otherwise your phone will be searching for a WiFi connection to connect to which can majorly slow things down if it grabs one)

    I have had no problem getting laptops to connect with just generic settings, but there is TONS of user control in this app and I got a d2-Pad (d2-911) that I needed WiFi for, couldn't get it to connect till I changed Device-Profile to "Generic ICS/JB wlan0" and Setup-Method to "Netd(master)". I do not use any encryption (but it has it if you want it), and I do not use the access control (but I have before, it works great), and I DO use the "Keep Alive Connection" setting. On Virgin Mobile I pay $45/month for 1200 min and unlimited data for my phone, pad, laptops, even my desktop computer when someone parks their travel trailer in front of my antenna!

    Agreed, I also found this way to be simple and no PC required. Easier than using the PC to do my Samsung Fascinate before I had the Rise. Actually I had to use Poot and Ministro II, but some of the latest reviews are saying that Ministro was updated and isn't working with Poot properly...this may have been fixed, just be aware. :-)

    I'm trying to use the RunMe.bat, but it gets stuck saying "If all is successful i will tel you, if not this shell will run forever" And it has stayed like this for the past thirty minutes. What should I do, all i want to do is turn off the annoying shutter sound.

    Don't use that method to root your Rise. Use this one:

    Kyocera Rise v4.0.4 Root Procedure No PC Required - xda-developers

    It also works for several other Kyocera Android phones. I used this successfully to root an Event.

    Hey man,
    first of all - really appreciate your post. So - I did all the steps, I got my kyocera rooted, set up the hotspot, all seems to be fine, it connects via wifi, even shows 'internet access' but..
    For example, Skype does work, but I cannot open any page using a browser. I checked at least 3 browsers. So basically, there is internet, but I cannot browse.
    What could be the reason?
    thanks a lot.
    Mike.

    I am literally sick, sick SICK of reading half-baked, sketchy posts about this damned Kyocera phone. NONE of the methods across a multitude of sites worked. There's certainly enough ***-patting and self congratulating going on here for the ones the root method works for, but I read tons of posts from people just like me for whom the root tools did not work for and for the most part - very little is done to explain anything, troubleshoot the issue, or offer a solution. If just one of you guys took 10 minutes to write a decent instruction guide and bothered to check your facts, there wouldn't be all this confusion and BS.I'm so over this - going back over to XDA.

    what is your version, 4.0.3 or 4.0.4? I used the poot method and it worked; Mine is 4.0.4, original bought. I heard it is more difficult once you upgraded. another root method I think will work too,https://towelroot.com/. I am already root, can't try myself. Report back if it work. oh, BTW, does update the rise lose your root? Thanks,

    It is too old, the link wont work any more, try this one, http://www.androidpot.net/download?apk=/server3/tr3.apk, or just google yourself

    DO NOT use towelroot. It installs malware. Everyone who needs to root a rise as well as any other type of phone, please download the app "How to Root for Android" from the play store. It had a few different ways on there, more than what I found on the internet, and I tried two of them before the third finally rooted my phone.

    I have a Kyocera Rise and that method did NOT work in rooting my phone. I tried multiple times with poot and none of them worked. I don't recommend it.
