    Just a thought. My assumtion on this would be "NO" as it's written for B not C.

    I was curious as to wether or not you could just use the same 1clickroot method as with the B update, via the zte root guide in forums, or is that written for B, and won't work on C? if not why couldn't you just use that root method

    What? If the old One click method worked I wouldnt have bothered with this at all.


    @ Rally 517, Its purely up to you. Just because theres an update out doesnt mean you have to use it. If you have problems with your Warp you might want to try it out though. If you dont like it you can always go back.

    Apparently i'm the only one still having problems ;\, superuser installs, but rootchecker shows noroot access. Gonna read through everything and keep trying...I don't want to lose everything again though, I finally got my phone set w. apps and customization that I like, now..I cant use TI backup w.out root right? any way to completely backup how my phone is now, in case i have to reflash again/lose everything in order to get root back? Also this sd card issue, CWM read this card no problem before, I think these issues started when i messed around and tried partitioning the sd card, I have formatted it and whiped all data but, does anyone know anything to do to get this memory card to be able to be mounted in CWM? I believe this micro sd card issue is the "root" pun slightly intended, of my problems.

    So I can just run your recovery with CWM and I'll have the new update rooted and everything?

    A- I already reformatted the entire card so there are no partitions on it. And tried all this to no avail. B- Im pretty much about to just do that, but saving contents will only save my pics/media, apps i'd like to save...and If i can't get CWM to read the card, I can't do any of this, very annoying...About to go run out and buy a 32 gig.

    Hi guys and gals....

    Been gone all day but I commented on another post about this from earlier, but I wondered if I do the update because my phone has gone absolutely crazy over the last few days, can I re-root without the CWM? I have been too scared to to use the CWM but still liked that my phone was rooted but if I need to use the CWM then I am sure being a semi noob I will be back on here in a few now that I am home for help...Im scared guys its like too much at once but I am willing to try but I just wanted to know if I could do it without it

    No you cant. But you can flash stock recovery back to the phone after you root it. I dont know why you would though because the recovery does not effect the way the phone operates.

    Thanks Woodstock...maybe I should just leave it alone but the many many problems people were having with there phone I wasn't having until the last couple of days, now I did include the build.prop update from another post, but thats the only changes I've made and I want to throw this phone out the window...I figured the update would make it run smoother and if thats the case I guess I would take that over root *sadly* anyday...I'm an app hawk, I literally have 98 apps from themes to file explorers but like others I guess I want the "new toy"...what to do what to do:(

    I would say go for it, worse case scenario you can go back to stock. If you have cwm now, try clearing cache and clearing dalvik, you might also want to go back to stock build prop and see if that is causing the problem

    Thanks all...I read and read until I figured I understood enough and I first installed CWM to see if I could do it without error and that went well, then I flashed back to the stock using Woodstock's zip, updated using the ZTE online tool, had a few issues updating the ZTE drivers which I knew I had already installed but sleepy me, one eye open and one closed at this hour had the phone OFF...haha anywho, got the CWM one click working and added the superuser zip, it installed from my SD card fine (using a 8gb card) and now I am using titanium backup to reload my apps and data...its not finished yet sso I hope that was ok but its after 2 in the morning and I wanted to thank everyone that helped with their comments...hopefully the backup goes well, if not I will redo something or another...now that I know how to do it and not that scared to anymore :D
