How to Root HTC Rhyme S510b

HTC Rhyme S510b hasn’t yet experienced root access. You can change that by applying some special steps. They are all laid out in this guide!

A rooting will make sure that your smartphone is equipped with the most recent goodies. The app to step in and make a difference is SRSRoot. If you don’t know much about it, we’ll reveal its mysteries one at a time. We’ll begin by telling you that this is a dedicated app which can be downloaded for free.

Your smartphone’s not the only gadget to work with the SRSRoot. This app is meant to support many other devices, no matter their models or manufacturers. Coming back to it: this tool is excellent should you ever want an unrooting option. Also, it’s already powered by an SRS Server.

A wide variety of Build IDs can be used for your phone’s rooting. Our choice was this one: GRJ90. The HTC Rhyme S510b was previously rumored as HTC Bliss and it came out in late October 2011. Its specifications and whatnot include a 1 GHz Scorpion processor, Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread and many others. They’ll stay where they are. Not only that, but the CPU will move at faster speeds; and the OS will not face deletion.HTC-Rhyme-S510b

The benefits of this procedure

If this is the first time you’ll root your handset, you’ll need to know what awaits you. Apart from the obvious set of goodies, the smartphone shall experience damage. In exchange for root access, the phone’s warranty will say goodbye. To grab it back, you should go and find a guide which offers help.

And now for those goodies. The SRSRoot app helps deliver new features. Then it allows the user to see what root-only apps are all about. The handset shall have these, as well: custom ROMs and superuser permission. These will be followed by battery tweaks. Not only those, but also admin permission along with customization options. Bloatware and security troubles won’t bother you and your device.
