    Anyone know anything about rooting this phone?

    It seems like a fast and well built phone. Im very impressed for the 100.00 price tag.

    I just purchased today at best buy, I searched and searched, I haven't even found a form devoted to it yet.


    Thank you

    You can use Framaroot located at the XDA website. As a new member it won't let me post links, etc. Just Google Framaroot, and you will find it. Make sure 'unknown sources' is checked in Settings/Security.

    When it opens up, choose the Gandalf exploit. I used this method yesterday on a friend's Radiant, and worked flawlessly. Hope this helps.

    Thanks mabry. Worked fine for me on ZTE 740 Radiant with the latest version of Framaroot using the Gandalf exploit. I installed the Pro version from google play after the free version was successful. I did unmount my SD card before i ran Framaroot if that matters and put a check in Security "unknown sources" in settings. Hope this helps

    What does rooting it mean? Also does anyone know where I can buy a phone case for this phone that isn't a large strap

    Hello all

    I have created a CWM recovery for it and would like to make and thread.


    Thank you for any help you can provide

    yeah i can boot it to the recovery mode where i can wipe cache etc. i've been trying to put zip files on my sd card and having it restore from there but it hasn't worked. i've tried the adb stuff but my phone isn't recognized by my computer when plugged into usb. and i didn't dl clockworkmod before i did all this. basically i did it the least smart way lol. can i use just the sd card?

    i am going to assume that it worked, because if it did not, you would be asking questions

    So even though you have not thanked me for helping you un-brick your phone - your welcome

    FYI not responding to my question, not leaving any feedback on the stuff I made, and not giving any thanks, is not a good way to encourage developers to work on this phone

    It does not seem like any one is interested in this phone, so I am going to halt working on the Cyanogen Mod ROM I am working on

    I just wanted to say that I just bought this phone today to replace my contract HTC with broken glass ($200 to fix!) and I have to say it's a great deal for the price ($75 at BB). I already have a large Android tablet, so I don't need a super-duper giant phone. Anyway, I thank you for the work you've already put into this and will definitely appreciate anything else you do. CM would be awesome!

    I'm having a helluva problem rooting this phone, I downloaded framaroot versions 5.1, 5.2, 9.0. Used Ganadolf (I think that's the name?) and it just kept shutting down on me.

    So I'm at a loss. I'm confused, without the root I can't use CWM, right?

    I am having some problems. Maybe someone can give me some guidance?

    Thank you,
