If you want to root your Huawei Honor 4c you first need to unlock bootloader and then you need to flash custom recovery. Installing custom recovery will allow you to flash SuperUser.zip and any other custom recovery or custom app. However, installing custom recovery will void device warranty.
Note: UptoAndroid will not be held responsible for any damage to the device during the process. Proceed at your own risk.
