    The Huawei Ascend Plus (ACE) (H881C) has hit stores, it's actually a great phone for the price (1 ghz dual processor, 4 inch screen, ICS), and rooting it is quite easy.

    Check it out: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login Not sure why walmart has it listed as the Huawei Ace

    First make sure you have ADB working on your system, there are several guides online on how to do this.

    Download Huawei USB device drivers below.

    Download SRSroot here: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

    Install the usb drivers to your system, run SRSRoot and follow the easy prompts provided.

    Done, you're rooted. Root at your own caution, there is still no recovery built for this phone as of yet.

    One method I found that helped me figure out the partitions on my phone is go to /cache/recovery and open last_log with a text editor, though I think you have to do a factory reset from stock recovery to get that log file. Dunno if it's applicable to every phone, but it's worth looking into.
    The output from the file would look something like this:

    can't open /dev/tty0: No such file or directory

    Just tried that. I get a file called last_install but its empty. I tried data wiping then pulling and I got the same result.
    Maybe I need to install something? Lol, trying to find this info is becoming a pain in my butt.

    I just got my H881c and used SRSroot before I activated it and it worked great but can't get the hotspot to work, does anyone have any suggestion?

    I have quite a few apps moved to my sdcard so my partitions file is a bit longer than stock, let me know if you need anything else. Im thinking of uploading my /boot /system and /recovery partitions based off of clark71822 log aswell, however im not sure the proper way to get them off the device? What Ive tried so far is just using dd and outputing the result as a .img file to my sdcard.... Im very interested in getting this accomplished, but am pretty new to messing around with smartphones hah
