Tools and Files you will need /Windows / linux:

______________________________________

Windows:

2: Connect USB cable to your computer.

4: Open a command prompt (Start+R) type "command".

5: From the command line, cd into the newly created directory and type root

6: While the phone reboots, be sure to hold the "Volume Down" button to boot back into FTM. If it begins to boot normally, pull the USB cable and power phone down to reattempt booting into FTM. Once you're back in FTM, plug the USB cable back in and the script should resume the process.

7: Once it's finished, let the phone boot into normal mode and verify root access. IE: use "Root Checker Basic".

Linux:
1. Download the file root_for_zte_avid.tar.bz2 to your computer and extract it.

2. Plug the phone in.

3. Find the file root-linux.sh, and Click on it.

4. Select Run In Terminal

5. Type your root password in the terminal

6. The script will guide you from there. Hold VOLUME DOWN through the whole process.

After rooting, if Superuser asks to update- select "Normal" install

HELP: ok so I'm very new to rooting and have become obsessed with all rooting has to offer. I have installed SU, ROM manager, busy box and titanium backup. I followed the instructions on this thread and when I boot into recovery I selected the zip file and it says E: signature verifovation failed abort. Plus when I rebooted my phones had done the reset so now I had to reinstall my spa just to try n figure out how to figure out what I'd done wrong lol. IM sorry IM not very techy when it comes to these things Butch am determined and want to succeed. Plz help me...

Default Original stock Avid?

I cannot get unlock prompt to come up with non Metro sim and I want to try removing custom rom, unrooting and putting stock back to see if unlock prompt will appear. I just can't find a working link for a Avid stock rom. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for posting this thread too.
