Root after B08c update (should also work on earlier builds)

    First Turn on USB Debugging in settings/applications/development
    Then turn on Unknown sources in settings/applications
    Then you have to install Quietstorm's CWM recovery. See his thread here http://androidforums.com/warp-all-t...orkmod-5-0-2-7-beta2-warp-released-today.html Thanks QuietStorm1785 without CWM recovery we couldnt root this way. And without Interdepth's original root we wouldnt have gotten CWM so that we could do it this way. (a vicious cycle)
    You can also use a One click installer found here http://androidforums.com/warp-all-things-root/490927-one-click-process-installing-cwm.html Thanks SnakeX
    The installer I made can be found here ZTE Warp Recovery Installer V2.zip

    After you install CWM put SuperUser.zip on your sdcard then reboot into recovery. SuperUser.zip
    Choose install zip from sdcard.
    Then verify thats what you want to do.
    After install has completed reboot the phone.
    After the phone reboots you should have root.

    Sounds like bad SD card

    Thats odd. You may want to try a different sdcard.
    Try go to advanced>fix permissions
    But it could be the sdcard. The ones that came with the Warp arent the best.

    You gotta install stock recovery then go to FTM mode. Bro when in bootloader go to your device manager and manually update the drivers from there. I dont know what else to tell you.

    Meanwhile I felt the need to prove its working so here goes.

    and after installing busybox using busy box installer off market or web download.

    You might need to install the whole adb package. your going to have to google it. Google "how to install adb".

    Well what is it doing?

    If the file isnt downloading create a folder named FirmwareVersion in your (C:\Program Files\Handset software update tool\Handset software update tool) folder then download N860V1.0.0B19.zip and place it inside that folder. Then run the tool again.

    E.G. <<<C:\Program Files\Handset software update tool\Handset software update tool\FirmwareVersion\N860V1.0.0B19.zip>>>

    What does the update fix? Why do we need it?
  24. Running b08c here. Rooted by woodstck77's tutitorial, phone is running fanstatic. I also added the lines of code from the modified build.prop on the warp forum (i did not replace the entire build.prop file! I just cut and pasted the lines of code that the OP had added to the build.prop as the new build.prop is way different and i wanna go through and examine it)

    Thanks to woodstock77, for an old guy yous got skillz! &#65532;
