[Merit] ZTE 990g will not turn on Debugging mode

    I can not get get my phone to go in the Debugging mode. I connect it up and no little bug appears in the Status bar it just offers USB storage mode, with the USB icon in the status bar... ADB on the computer doesn't even see it. It worked just fine until the WiFi quit but, thanks to Tech support, I got it back. The poor guy at Tech had no idea what I was talking about, Debug Mode. I've tried this on two different computers.

    I'm using Rom 1.3 in the Setup guide. I'm going back to the stock rom. This 1.3 rom seems buggy to me. Then again, I could be the one that is! Thanks ahead for the help.

    It's not the first time I've heard of this error. What I do know is that it's not the kernel. If switching to another ROM fixes the issue, there's your answer..

    Factory Reset.

    I too am experiencing this with my merit. Debugging is no longer working and factory reset doesn't fix it. Also it somehow is no longer rooted. A fix for this would be great.

    Are you running the one.three ROM? Did you do a restore or start fresh after the factory reset?

    Ya, I had rooted and modded it but, re-installed the orginal mod with Clockwork. I found the problem was not the phone but my computer. I re-installed the Merit drivers and the ADB software. I would recommend cleaning your registry first because the first time I tried this it didn't work. That is at least what worked for me on both computers. I hope this helps with someone else's troubles.
