    cydia impactor successfully rooted my zte awe:D you can find download link at zte avail2 root? make sure you thank homeboy. i believe Misternad(hope thats right if not i apologize.)

  2. Just got the phone and i rooted it using motochopper. Couldnt figure out cydia impactor but motochopper worked perfectly. Just clicked "run.bat" and let it do its thing. Downloaded adblock plus, asked for superuser access, and works great.

    on the cwm note, watch for similar phones to get cwm, msm8630 ztes havent been cracked yet that i know of but once i do it should be transferrable. i can get thr warp 4g to almost boot but it seems to hang on initialization of the screen. if soneone can come up with something for that let me know, also im going to try a newer cwm and see how that plays out, havent gotten the chance yet tho, im still working with cm10s cwm

    Make sure to go to settings > developer options > enable USB debugging

    That's how I was able to root my phone after I checked it and connected it to my PC...and used the program to root my phone.

    Anyone tried "POOT"?
  15. junkie2100

    junkie2100 Well-Known Member Developer

    i serisously doubt poot would ever work. if im not mistaken it was made back in the gingerbread days, and using it on an ics/jb device would probably do more harm than good. youre welcome to try but id have a good backup ready

    Just got the phone on Black Friday at Target. Motochopper works and have root! Maybe its just me, but I had to figure out how to get the drivers loaded to my PC from the phone first. (Settings, Connect to PC, Install Driver, then Connect to PC Software to let Motochopper access the phone.) After the reboot, you need to go to Superuser and let it update, then you'll have it. I now have Root Checker, AdAway, Link2SD and Titanium Backup working and accessing root.

    You were right. No luck with POOT, but no harm done (phew). Tried Motochopper don't know if it was me or motochopper but it didn't work either. The I decided to try KINGO, worked on my Chinese FOCU77 Phablet so what the hey.... BINGO!!!!! I'm rooted! Now I'm off to find out which tethering app will work. :vroam:

    I still have issues with the drivers. I downloaded the drivers from ZTE

    I also tried to use "connect to PC install drivers" with no success. I get ZTE HSUSB device.

    Also, how do you use Impactor?

    Here's what I did:
    1) connect phone to PC
    2) choose "connect to PC install drivers" which exposes a set of folders on the phone with the driver sotfware
    3) install driver on PC when prompted
    4) disconnect phone then re-connect
    5) choose "connect run software" or whatever the second option is called
    6) start imp actor
    7) click "Start" on the impact dialog

    Please keep us updated about the tethering. Barnacle and Wifi Tether don't work for me.

    I was able to root with no problem then needed to re-root after the update. I used link2sd to clean up some of the apps but now every time I restart some random google app needs to update. They don't seem to hold the update. My wifi seems to enable on its own randomly too. Besides that so far a great phone.
