    WE HAVE ROOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Have to Say This....
    DISCLAIMER, Neither myself, Team Osiris, kcurtis106, or Android Forums are responsible for anykind of malfunction or bricking of your device. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!

    Now we got that out the way....
    Here are the steps needed
    ( orginal post from kcurtis106 http://androidforums.com/avid-4g-all-things-root/678268-successfully-rooted-zte-avid-4g-metropcs.html )

    I Did Copy and Paste the Instructions from kcurtis106's post in the Avid forums but I made the changes needed for the Force

    Prerequisites: ZTE device drivers for USB. (Connect your phone via the USB cable and choose the "Install Driver" connection type from your device).

    1: Boot phone into FTM (hold the Volume Up key and power on device).
    2: Connect USB cable to your computer.
    3: Download ZTE Avid 4g root (MetroPCS).zip and unzip.
    4: Open a command prompt ( start>All Programs>Accessories... assuming Windows OS being used
    5: From the command line, type cd into the newly created directory ( this is where the ZTE Avid file contents extracted is located, for example C:\Users\(username)\Desktop\ZTE Avid 4g root (MetroPCS)\6 ) and type root
    6: While the phone reboots, be sure to hold the "Volume Up" button to boot back into FTM. If it begins to boot normally, pull the USB cable and power phone down to reattempt booting into FTM. Once you're back in FTM, plug the USB cable back in and the script should resume the process.****
    7: Once it's finished, let the phone boot into normal mode and verify root access. I used "Root Checker Basic".

    If you need any help, don't be afraid to ask or PM me or rest of Team Osiris. I get on here often now so I will be checking up with the Forum

    ****This Step I did forget to hold Volume up to make sure it booted back into FTM. But the Force did reboot itself until I caught it. Trust original instructions but if this happens to you. don't be alarmed....

    It worked!!!!!!!! May The FORCE Be With Us All
    -Funny.... a Jedi let everyone know how to root the Force.....AWESOME

    Special Thanks Goes Out To kcurtis106 for originally posting this method for the Avid. THANKS HOMIE!!!!!
    Also thanks out to Team Osiris ( which includes me )

    Donations to Team Osiris for future Developments are VERY welcome

    YES!!!! Rooted and working! :3 ( Well... Twice Actually.. first time was before activation which reset my phone to factory .-. ) Now to wait for that recovery image to be finished and paycheck so I can donate for this :)

    If I need to I can upload it to my dropbox and give a link. And yes you can. It's a zip file that contains all the files you will need (minus drivers preloaded on the phone)

    I'm not really worried about a custom recovery right now. This phone was pretty good on its own and root made it perfect for what I need it for. Still looking forward to what this phone is actually capabe of. Thank you guys for hooking us up with root and working on the "hard" stuff lol.

    I'm an Avid user. But, this phone is identical in specs to the ZTE Avid 4G Software and hardware wise. So assuming that our root worked for you guys our Touch CWM Recovery would work just as well.

    Original CWM Thread

    CWM Download Link
    totlth Touch CWM(Avid) Possibly Force 4G as well

    Thanks to totlth for this.

    For dd:
    Copy touch-recovery.img to the root of your SDcard.

    For fastboot (touch-recovery.img in the same folder as your fastboot.exe)
    - Method does not work for Windows 8 users

    I am fairly certain it will work for you guys, are any of you brave enough to test the theory?!
