I've recently purchased a Huawei X3, which I'll be using for testing Android apps that I develop. I'd like to root this, but as I've not had any experience with rooting Android handsets, its something I'm approaching with some caution.

What is the recommended way to root the X3? I've found mention of a Windows app called SuperOneClick, which looks like it may be useful. My development machine is a Mac, but I'm not adverse to using Windows apps to do this if its easier.

Also, what are the risks involved in rooting? Any advice on mitigating these risks, and reducing the chance of accidentally bricking my phone are also welcome.

Ive used Superoneclick, twice, both times my device was on Froyo, it worked well.

Only risk with rooting i guess is voiding the warrenty.
