I cannot get the new nandroid to work. I downloaded the file from woodstock, ran system reset and cleared cache and davik cache from CWM and it said it wont mount sd card. I tried to reboot phone, and it just hangs at the green android at startup. I read around the forums and see that the sd card could be the issue. (i had a 16mb class 6 sandisk in, so i swapped back into the original card.) When i tried to restore with the new card in place, it reads the card just fine, but im getting a MD5 mismatch error. Anyone? I had woodstocks slightly modified nandroid installed prior with no issues. I'm sure im just missing something somewhere. Hopefully someone has a thought. Thanks everyone.

P.S. In a moment of desperation, i tried to restore the old nandroid so i could at least use the phone, and it now wont load the old one, or any of my backups either. It keeps saying md5 mismatch

Thats gotta be one of your apps. Make a list here and lets try and figure out which one it could be. When I was still using mine alrm clock extreme and words with friends were the only app I had issues with.

I just wanted to update everyone, in case someone else has same issue... I was getting a md5 mismatch error. I deleted every nandroid i had from my sd card, went back to the original sd card, and re-downloaded the newest woodstock nandroid...unzipped, restored, PRESTO! SUCCESS! Thank you everyone for all your work, and care in this form....I feel so connected

I would start by looking at apps that run in the background alot. I would just pick 5 apps uninstall them and see if it stops doing what its doing. If it does I would reinstall one at a time until you find the culprit. If uninstalling those five doesnt fix the problem reinstall all five and try five others and so on a so forth.
If I had to guess the most likely problem apps I would say
  • yahoo mail
  • bravose
  • tweetcaster pro
  • cache cleaner
  • living social
  • four square <<<notoriously bad app
  • appaware <<<notoriously bad app

Go through all of your apps and see if any have ads in them.
Apps arent built with viruses in them normally but apps that have ads involved with them are known to open a way for viruses to get onto your phone. I would get adfree off of the market and use it to eliminate ads. I know alot of people who only root so that they can use adfree.

I personally dont understand having that many apps. Well I do but you have so many that kind of do the same thing. That i dont understand. I mean you have three browsers. Why?

i had adfree installed but it didnt seem to work for me but I may not have been loading it correctly...I figured you would notice the similiar apps and for the browsers I like dolphin because it brings up mobile sites right away and it is easier for me to log in to a few things, then i like opera because it does both and seems to run pretty fast. I also have file explorer and root explorer to see which works best to manipulate files and just havent removed one of them yet, I like the ease of file explorer because root explorer seems intimidating...I can go on and on with a few others but I wont its funny that you mention viruses because one of my emails seemed to get hacked recently and I have virus protection on my laptop so I was thinking it had to be the phone so I installed lookout...which found nothing but it seemed to lag the phone so i uninstalled that about two days ago...I will definetely take your suggestions and remove a few and see what happens...im so surprised at foursquare I love that app...im mayor all over the place haha but if it has to go then its fine too...thanks again I will update you after my testing

maybe to help eliminate some possibilities, my phone does not restart and I put a star next to the ones I have installed as well.

not sure why you would need these ones:

link2sd (you running out of space on the phone?)
cache cleaner (just my opinion that these do more harm than good)

Then you have to install Quietstorm's CWM recovery.

And without Interdepth's original root we wouldnt have gotten CWM so that we could do it this way. (a vicious cycle)
You can also use a One click installer found here http://androidforums.com/warp-all-things-root/490927-one-click-process-installing-cwm.html Thanks SnakeX
The installer I made can be found here ZTE Warp Recovery Installer V2.zip

After you install CWM put SuperUser.zip on your sdcard then reboot into recovery. SuperUser.zip
Choose install zip from sdcard.
Then verify thats what you want to do.
After install has completed reboot the phone.
After the phone reboots you should have root.
So... I currently have CWM Recovery, but I can't run the B08c update without FTM mode. However, I can't get FTM mode without reverting the Warp to stock. To top it off, the stripped-Nandroid build that you made available is only B08, with the B08c Nandroid still containing the Boost Zone/Mobile ID/etc. I know its early in the morning still, but am I missing something here? I feel like I'm running in circles trying to figure this out :\

That latest nandroid is b08c. Yes in order to update you have to put stock recovery back on then update then put CWM back on. If you use my one click installer linked in the OP (Original Post) then that would be easy as one click for you to do. If all this is just too much to do for you and your happy with your phone just leave it at b08b. I didnt make this stuff hard for you bro. Im guessing you are wanting me to strip a b08c nandroid for you. Somebody should I think but it wont be me. I dont even use the Warp anymore. I only did this much because I care. If its not enough then so sorry for your bad luck bro.

Cool bro. Thanks for the response. Wasn't a fan of all the icon/graphical updates so I'm going back to stock... bro.

Really though... my only concern was getting CWM back on after multiple people reported that they're weren't able to achieve that post-update. Appreciate the snarky response though... Thanks, bro. I knew this place was getting a little too chummy lately.

I followed Woodstocks method using his two batch files to go to stock recovery then update and go back to cwm recovery and used the zip on the op to root, it all was painless

Can someone help? I have followed the instructions, but cannot get past installing the correct usb drivers for adb. I get to the point where it is waiting on my device. I go into device manager, update driver on Android yellow exclamation point, browse to the location i downloaded the usb files to. When i click ok to install, it doesnt install the drivers. Any idea, i have tried front/back usb...i have downloaded and installed the android-sdk and installed google usb drivers. im running this on xpsp3...is that an issue?

I feel your pain... Someone else around here was recently having issues with XP, think they figured it out though. I'll see if I can help find that post...

Well my issue is not Xp related. I am home now and running win7 64bit, still cannot install the drivers. I did not previously have CWM installed. I have already updated to c and want to install CWM so i can root. Steps i have taken:

1. updated firmware using ZTE Tool.
2. Downloaded usb_drivers file and zte warp recovery installer.
3. checked usb debugging/unknown source setting
4. connected phone via usb...can see phone in device manager
5. ran as admin file Flash_CWM_recovery
6. file reboots phone, phone stays at green man while file process is stuck at waiting for device.
7. click update drivers on other device Android in device manager...browsed to usb_driver location. click install...but nothing happens. does not install drivers.

What am I missing? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Ok at this point your at the green android and nothing is happening.

Go to device manager and look.
You should see up at the top something like this.



Or it could show it as having a bad driver or wrong driver. Either way it isnt working and what you do next is right click and choose Update Driver Software.
Next choose Browse my Computer for driver software and ok.


Now choose Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.


Click have disk and choose the drivers you downloaded
Now Uncheck Show compatible hardware.
You should now see several options. Try each one and try to continue the CWM install after each try until you find the correct driver for adb during bootloader.

My guess it is going to be adb bootloader interface.

I had this in Xp Pro SP3 and what I did was just choose update driver, then instead of choosing from the list, I let windows find the best driver, it found what it needed and worked ever since.
I have seen people choose from the list, but I decided to let windows do it's thing for a change, and it worked fine.

Thanks for the advice...I'm an app-a-holic and I know it I uninstalled yahoo mail, foursquare *tear* and I have had NO reboots since doing that this morning...I have link2sd because I figures that the more stuff I can put on the SD card the better the phone should run with out all the junk since I install apps at the drop of a dime ooohhh and I uninstalled cache cleaner, I thought it would help because I am on the internet like crazy and I have a sweeper sort of thing for my laptop to clear cache there so I figured why not let something do it for the phone....I may try to reinstall one of the apps but probably not...but I hate the stock email app which is what i am using for my yahoo accounts...maybe I will happen upon another, the stock is so plain, Im a visual person you guys all ROCK!

I have followed Woodstocks tutorial. I still can not get this rooted... It stays on the green droid after reboot, and no driver will allow me to install, they all say that the driver does not contain information about my hardware.
2 days of trying, on 2 different computers.
The real bummer is that I used Titanium backup, and now I can not restore my apps, and settings until I get this rooted.

The real bummer is that I used Titanium backup, and now I can not restore my apps, and settings until I get this rooted.

I was in the same boat....I was able to follow WoodStock77 advice above(post #67)...and got it to install. I didnt use the drivers provided. I did as he said and choose from the listed devices.

OK Woodstock : It has to be my driver install here because where yours is listed as Android phone at the top of the list mine is listed as ADB Interface with a drop down of ZTE Composite ADB Interface underneath. I looked for the driver as you showed in the pic's above but there's no bootloader at all in the list. I do know how to install an uninstall drivers it's just not working. I think the zte adb bootloader driver are not installed properly. So......If someone can tell me how to install the correct ones it will probably work fine. I hope ! I'm running 64bit w/7 . Thanks............

UPDATE : This is the fix for me and probably others. Xoriths post below got me rooted with CWM. Many thanks to Xorith and others. Backing up with titanium backup now !

Hello folks!
I, too, was having a difficult time getting Windows 7 (64-bit) to update the drivers. I even installed the latest SDK general drivers. It would keep going back to saying that "Unknown Device" was the best driver for my hardware. When I'd try to force the issue by using "Have Disk..." it would then tell me that the android_winusb.inf did not contain driver information suitable for a 64-bit OS...

So I Googled my heart out until I found this:

-- Okay, I can't post links - no matter how helpful they might be... so instead let me tell you to Google for "Making Fastboot work on 64-bit Windows 7 systems" and it should be the very first link

It's a quick guide that I found which uses PdaNet's drivers and it worked great for me!

Ok Im really not a noob at this kind of stuff, but there is a lot to keep track of. I got the CWM installed successfully but I still cannot access the SD card on my comp. to install superuser? Did I do something wrong maybe?

Are you trying to access it while in recovery? If so, you should put the file on your SDCard prior to booting into recovery.

ok thanks, that I understand now but it says my phone is not rooted. After I install CWM do I have to apply an update or something? I know there is probably a thread explaining but they are all starting to run together and Im getting even more confused o_O sorry guys

UPDATE: GOT IT FINALLY!! Just took a little common sense I didnt have at the moment

Thanks Woodstock for the work on this. Had to use PdaNet to take care of my driver problems. Other than that it worked like a charm. Tried a custom recovery that down graded my phone to 0B08b but was getting a black screen after waking up the phone. (mine came stock with 0B08c). Any links for a custom recovery from the 0B08c build? Wish I could use the nandroid from Shinru.


edit: thanks sidewinder for the PdaNet info

So do you know if this will work on windows 7 64-bit? Everytime I try something that someone says will works with 64bit it will go through then at the end it just says loading or waiting for device, and I know all the drivers are installed correctly...

Yeah I thought my driver were installed the rite way but nope. So uninstall the drivers you have in now, and then reboot. Then install the pdanet for 64bit drivers, reboot and then try it again. Worked for me. Good luck

I tried that but it said it couldn't communicate with device or something like tile that...

I will probably make a video tomorrow, for anyone who is still having problems. It is confusing at first, but when you're done, it really was all just a few simple steps, but a few downloads, which took up about 200 mb at the most (with extra files)

If I had to guess the most likely problem apps I would say
  • yahoo mail
  • bravose
  • tweetcaster pro
  • cache cleaner
  • living social
  • four square <<<notoriously bad app
  • appaware <<<notoriously bad app

Go through all of your apps and see if any have ads in them.
Apps arent built with viruses in them normally but apps that have ads involved with them are known to open a way for viruses to get onto your phone. I would get adfree off of the market and use it to eliminate ads. I know alot of people who only root so that they can use adfree.

I personally dont understand having that many apps. Well I do but you have so many that kind of do the same thing. That i dont understand. I mean you have three browsers. Why?
Whoa whoa whoa, if you've rooted your phone, you have no need for any of that Go stuff.

Edit: Oops, quoted the wrong thing there. Sorry

Rooting the ZTE Warp does not cause it to stop being special, in the ways some people might hope. That should probably go in the disclaimer somewhere

Hello, new to this forum. I have followed all the instructions, downloaded all the app's, and my phone is still not rooted. I have tried everything I can think of. I am using Klink, my phone tethered to my alienware laptop for internet access @ 3G speed. Please help. LOL

My last phone was a Galaxy Prevail and I was able to root it easily, but this root is not working at all. How do I reboot in recovery mode? I am stumped! LOL

NM, I am rooted now. figured it out. Now, if I can just get Everquest to connect, I will be good. LOL

Any Everquest players out there with some advise? LOL

in working with Noove, the solution was to either replace the card or to re-format it using software like this one: partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html

fat32 works for me

Default Noob Question

Before I start this headache of a process, I just want to know if this will allow me to use my warp as a hotspot. If not I won't even bother. I have hacked a Wii & a PSP so far & they were child's play compared to all this lol.

GOD! im such a jerk! the whole time sitting here thinking I had successfuly installed CWM but all i was doing was booting into the normal android recovery. Im all set now, Just installed the SU file and started successfully tethering.

Just incase anyone is is wondering, the only issue was the driver thing. If you follow what woodstock posted on going through your device manager to update the drivers it should work just fine. thanks guys for all the work you do!
