    I want to root a Kyocera Rise (C5155). The problem is that I cannot get any windows computer (XP, 7 or 8) to recognize the phone, with or without the proper drivers. I have tried 3 different windows machines, including a brand new Acer laptop. I have tried rebooting the computers and the phone, using different cables, trying different USB Ports even factory resetting the phone. I plug it in and it simply charges. There is no notification about USB debugging (which is turned on) or anything. However, the phone behaves as it should when plugged into my friend's Mac. The notification about USB debugging appears, and the phone prompts me to choose between Mass Storage, charge only or media transfer. I wonder why it won't behave this way when connected to a computer running windows... I even tried to manually root it using adb, but the Android sdk is unsupported by Mac OS X 10.4.11.
    I simply need to know if there is a way to root this phone using an older Mac, or without using a computer at all. I am beginning to think I am destined to be rootless on this phone. I know you guys don't support this make and model, but maybe someone has ran into this sort of problem with another Android.
    Thanks!

    Edit: I tried again today, and finally the windows 8 machine popped up with a notification that said "A USB device attached to the system was not recognized." I am pretty convinced that my phone is either damaged physically, or severely confused mentally.
    Thanks again!

    Go to the kyocera website and download the driver for your phone and install.  Then your computer will recognize your phone.  The only way I could get my rise rooted was to download an apk called poot to my sd card and use ES File Explorer (free from google play store) to load and run run it. Hope this helps. :)
