Here is how to install CWM recovery and root the Huawei Ascend G600 ( Honor+ ):

  1. Make sure your phone is unlocked and all drivers for fastboot are installed. Here is how to do it: http://www.jetdroid.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=106&t=8366
  2. Make sure the "Fast Boot" option in the system settings is turned off
  3. Download Root and Recovery archives from the links below
  4. Extract the Recovery (e.g "eng-U8950D_Recovery.rar") archive to some place on your computer
  5. Turn off the phone
  6. Press "power" + "volume down" button for at least 10 seconds to start the phone in fastboot mode
  7. Connect the phone to you PC
  8. Run the "flash_RECOVERY.bat" script from the extracted recovery archive (just double click it)
    A terminal window should open and show how the fastboot command downloads the recovery image to your phone. At completion your phone restarts.
  9. After the phone has restarted connect it to your PC and place the "Root.zip" file on the SD-card of your phone
  10. Turn off the phone
  11. Press "power" + "volume up" button for at least 10 seconds to start the phone in recovery mode
  12. Navigate through the recovery menu with the vol-up and vol-down buttons and
    • choose "install zip from sdcard" (use the power button to select)
    • then select "choose zip from sdcard"
    • select the "Root.zip" you just copied to the phone
    • confirm "Yes - Install Root.zip" and
    • see the root patch getting installed.
    • Finally go back to the main menu and select "reboot system now".
  13. Your phone should restart
  14. Congratulations! Your phone is rooted now. You can now find the "Superuser" app in your menu.

The current version of the recovery image still has problems creating backups. Details on this can be found here.

Happy rooting!
