Yes Eclipse smartphone root attempt

Yes Eclipse Root Attempt
  • Save
IA - TIME

The geek fraternity should rejoice that Yes hasn’t locked down their maiden Eclipse smartphone ala Motorola. Running Android Froyo v2.2.2,

I’m currently attempting to root the device using GingerBreak v1.2. The hardware reminds me a lot of my Nexus One, 1Ghz Snapdragon yada yada. The rooting process should only take a couple of minutes but then again, it is quite a customised ROM so we’ll see. Will report!

    Hi, I have been trying Z4root, universal androot,  unlock root and superoneclick, but none of them are able to root my Yes Eclipse. Please advise if you found another way of rooting it, thanks. seekchuan@gmail.com

      Have tried Gingerbreak so far. Doesn’t work. Will try others. Will be in contact with Yes engineers soon. Any questions you’d like to task? 🙂

      Well, I just want to root it and get rid of ads and control over my privacy. Also, I find the battery drain very fast even I closed all the background apps. Do you have any way to cope with it?

    • vernieman

      I think the battery drain is hardware related. There seems to be some hardware issues with the battery. I’ll see if I can learn more from Yes team. Keep you posted.

      Grab the OTA update now available and see if that improves your battery life – Yes Releases Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) for Eclipse 4G Smartphone

  • JL

    did you manage to root it? I have tried various methods (including GingerBreak) to no avail. Kindly update… Thanx

    • Vernon Chan

      Hey JL, nope, doesn’t work with Gingerbreak. What other methods did you use?

    • JL

      have also tried Motorola Root to no avail. Various other methods including SuperRoot, etc

      I haven’t been successful but will be in touch with Yes 4G tech soon. Any questions you guys would like to ask about your Eclipse?
