    Download and install the Android SDK from Android SDK | Android Developers.

    enable USB debugging by going in to settings, applications, development and then marking the USB debugging box.

    Download the su file below and unzip to desktop.

    1. Open command prompt and begin rooting by enterin these commands below.
    Command:
    adb shell

    2. Then set up the dirs by entering the commands below, so shell owns them prior to logging. If shell does not own them then we can not control them. If the logs dir already exists, you may have to do a factory reset to remove them. They should not exist unless someone attempted this previously.
    Command:
    mkdir /data/local/logs
    mkdir /data/local/logs/kernel

    3. Open emode's logset activity. First button should be for enabling log set, enable it. Do not exit the activity, but if you do just repeat the below command.
    Command:
    am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -n com.zte.emode/.logset

    4. Confirm the log_kernel.txt file exists, if it does not wait a minute and check again.
    Command:
    ls -l /data/local/logs/kernel/log_kernel.txt

    5. If it exists, delete it and immediately symlink it to /data/local.prop, logset may recreate it, if it does delete and try symlinking again.
    Command:
    rm /data/local/logs/kernel/log_kernel.txt
    ln -s /data/local.prop /data/local/logs/kernel/log_kernel.txt

    6. Now we want to wait for /data/local.prop to be created, it may take a minute or two. Keep checking until it exists.
    Command:
    ls -l /data/local.prop

    7.Now once /data/local.prop exists, go back to the logset activity and disable logset. If you don't disable it, it will slowly eat away at all the disk space, and possibly overwrite the local.prop before you get root. Now lets set qemu=1 then reboot.
    Command:
    echo 'ro.kernel.qemu=1' > /data/local.prop
    exit
    adb reboot

    Once you have rebooted, remount, install su.
    Command:
    adb remount
    adb push su /system/xbin/su
    adb shell chown 0.0 /system/xbin/su
    adb shell chmod 06755 /system/xbin/su

    Clean up your mess!
    Command:
    adb shell rm /data/local.prop
    adb shell rm -r /data/local/logs

    Reboot, install the Superuser app from the market.

    Once Superuser is installed Reboot once more and enjoy!!!
    Command:
    adb reboot

    Went and got the su, eclipse, sdk, sdk manager, all that was required to root the ZTE Anthem and tried to install and get this hunk of junk rooted BUT I'm having troubles:mad:. Can you simplify your instructions, :stupido3:DUMB IT DOWN some. I'm thinking many folks in here are just like me...we need step by step directions please. I mean as simple like ...using usb connected to computer and phone, go to yada yada and type yada yada then click RUN:shot:. make IT SIMPLE, HOLD OUR HANDS, PLEASE! Cause I am not getting anywhere with the instructions on how to root. I do not mean to sound pushy but Man I hate this phone and really want to root it but I'm just not as savvy as some others on here, AT LEAST I ADMIT IT. Thank you:tee:

    ALSO: I SEE THAT THESE ROOT INSTRUCTIONS ARE COPIED AND PASTED HERE BUT THEY WERE ORIGINALLY FOR THE MERIT.
