The Cloudfone Thrill 430x, which sports a 4,160 mAh lithium polymer battery, is Cloudfone’s top of the line Android smartphone. It runs on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich and is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play processor. It’s a powerful phone for its price.
Just like flagship devices from big name brands, the Thrill 430x has been given the “root” treatment by its more technically-inclined owners.
For the uninitiated, rooting is basically gaining full access and control of the phone’s operating system. It’s similar to “jailbreaking” iOS devices. No, it does not make paid apps free.
If you are new to Android, I suggest you forego rooting your phone at the moment and read up instead on “Android root” to fully understand its benefits and disadvantages. For the tech-savvy user, read on for our step-by-step guide in rooting the Cloudfone Thrill 430x (a.k.a Innos D9):
Rooting will void your phone’s warranty and is for advanced users only. Your phone could end up as an expensive paperweight if you don’t know what you are doing. If you proceed with the steps provided below, you assume all responsibility.
