    I've taken this information from various sources and experience from rooting my Exhibit II, I do not take any credit for any of the information.

    1. Install the ZTE Score drivers. When you plug your phone into the computer, the drivers should install automatically, if not, I have included a link to the drivers on ZTE's site.

    2. Open Menu>Settings>Applications>Development an check USB debugging. I've also checked "Unknown sources" on the page before that, I don't know if it is needed, but I've seen in different locations that they recommend this as well.

    3. Extract Zerg rush root to your desktop and open it.

    4. Run ZergRush TempRoot and let it do it's business. When it's done, if all went well, you should now have root access and superuser will be installed on your phone. You MAY need to restart first.

    Edit: I've done this to my girlfriend's phone and I can verify that it works.

    Edit: I highly recommend installing Titanium Backup and backing up everything before you decide to start uninstalling anything. I REALLY recommend buying the paid version and freezing stuff first, but that's really up to you.

    Titanium Backup Free

    Titanium Backup Pro

    Haven't played with it too much, but here are some pretty simple system apps I've been able to remove so far..

    Obviously, if you remove the app, you remove what the app does, but if you use another app in place of it, you shouldn't need it.

    Books
    Bubble Bash
    Cricket 411
    Documents To Go
    Email
    Gmail
    Home screen tips
    Music
    MuveMusic
    Poynt
    Sound recorder
    Storefront
    Uno

    I should be able to play with it more later tonight and I'll update when I can.

    You're not going to use superuser to delete the apps, you have to install a third party app like titanium backup.

    Good to hear, don't forget to back up all those apps before you delete them and just be careful what you delete.

    I have no idea, if you followed the instructions correctly, there's no reason it shouldn't have worked. I don't actually own this phone, my girlfriend does, so I don't know a ton about it.

    It definitely could, your phone may need different drivers, didn't know there were slightly different models of the phone, I'll update when I'm at a computer with the other drivers if I can find them.

    I'm not able to find the drivers for that model. When you connect your phone to your computer, are you able to see the phone's files and stuff?

    Going to test that out in a few...trying to get this phone to be recognized by the CPU. Might have to do hard reset. As the phone is similar to the Huawei M860 was thinking of trying CM7 on it. We shall see:D
