    Has anyone tried the above method or any other with success? Just bought the anthem and all i need is root to make it better.. Won't even worry about a custom rom for a lil bit it, would make phone awesome tho.. Hope we get support for this phone!

    Since I haven't got much knowledge on how to manipulate electronics and I cant afford to brick this phone, I cant try the above method because I wouldnt know how to return it to its original state. Im not saying I want someone else to junk their phone, Im just saying Id rather someone who reeeeeeaaaaally knows what they are doing to try it out. At least I admit it, lol.

    You guys can try the root method posted ... but if you want to return to regular state just reset the device by going to privacy in settings or where ever it is

    Using the HTC Evo 4G engineering bootloader on a ZTE works and does not result in a brick???

    Factory data reset wouldn't fix that.

    i might have a couple of methods on root

    !!!MAKE SURE YOUR PHONE IS PUT IN USB DEBUGGING MODE!!!
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Warning It's your phone if you break it blame yourself. I can't help you if this script bricks your phone. I have used and it worked great.
    Currently there is no recovery, no roms or way to make a nandroid backup. BE CAREFUL. REALLY.

    You will need the proper adb drivers for this to work .
    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=how+to+install+adb+android+drivers+2012

    1. Put your device in usb debug mode from developer options setting menu.
    2. Download DoomLord Script and extract it to a folder. DooMLoRD_v1_Xperia-2011-ICS-ROOT-emu-busybox-su.zip
    3. Connect your phone via usb and make sure you have adb drivers already installed.
    4. Open the extracted folder run the runme.bat
    5.Click any key to start the script the device will reboot be patient can take a couple minutes.
    6. After script completes hit any key script should close you now have root.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ANOTHER ONE-
    -------------------------
    USE THIS ultimate warp drive.rar BUT FIRST INSTALL THE ZTE DRIVERS AFTER U INSTALL THE DRIVERS.USE THE ULTAMITE ROOT METHOD.JUST ROOT DONT DO CWM. !!!MAKE SURE YOUR PHONE IS PUT IN USB DEBUGGING MODE!!!

    Has anybody tried either 1 of the root methods posted, im anxious to root my anthem but want to get the right one. I know what its like to brick a phone, and though its still under the 30 day warranty i dont want to deal with waiting for a new one to get sent to me. any feedback on the better root would be great.

    Well i tried both of these methods and neither worked, the ultimate warp drive went halfway, but when i ran the script it kept saying "device offline", but my wifi was up, and i had usb debug on and mass storage on, it booted into recovery but the script wouldnt install anything...any ideas?

    Hello. I do not have this phone, so I can't test the method, but trying turn off mass storage. The phone I have must be put into "charge only" mode to use adb correctly.

    Do u have the drivers installed
  20. SeanP8

    SeanP8 New Member

    Yes im pretty sure I just uninstalled all my drivers and re-installed, then i tried both root methods again, it booted me into recovery and then it kept saying "adb server out of date...killing" and "error:device offline"

    I dont get it...

    :mad:I have tried both of these and did not work! I did find the recovery by using the ultimate warp. Does anyone know someone fix any of these to work on the anthem. I would love a rom also. I wonder if playfulgod can help us out. I have tried all of the methods that I know like gingerroot, 4zroot. I would even do it the hard way if I had instructions to do so. I also willing to give anyone what they need to buid a rom for this thing. It is a great phone just a bad rom a "gingerbread want-a-be":confused:
