    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...
    which method and what files should I be using exactly can you send links for the right stuff I need? maybe I'm not even doing it right. using one click method I believe...

    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)

    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 :p

    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

    Hey i have a question i'm having the same problem that n0ve having.. Everything goes thru the only problem that i'm having is when i'm in recovery mode. I click choose zip from sd card i get E: can't mount /sdcard/. Does anyone know what the problem maybe??

    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

    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.

    I followed the instructions but when I boot into recovery in CWM i dont get the option to install from SD. Only option I get is install update from SD and that does not work with the super user file i download from the OP. anyone have an idea what im doing wrong?

    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. :D thanks guys for all the work you do!
