    Me and my wife have the same phone, ROM, Kernel. I can connect her phone to the laptop and everything is detected. I could update PRL, Mass Drive, etc...When I connect mines, I get unknown device. No Mass Storage or anything whatsoever. I change the to all various functions in my phone "All Functions, AT, Debug, etc.. but there is no change. I have even went back to stock rom and reinstalled everything but have no luck. At one point, I unplug my wifes and plugged my phone it was semi detected but then it didn't work again. ZTE tool will not work since my phone is not detected.

    I have Warp Cream Sandwich ROM 1.6.3 & Glitch OC 1.8 Kernel.

    Any suggestions.

    I have had the same problem... I run my own rom of course along with a glitch kernel... no idea if our problem is related but I suspect that I shorted something out on the micro USB port because right before it stopped working I used a bad USB cord... I'm completely unsure what to tell you because I'm no good with hardware related issues... otherwise I'd have fixed my own already

    I am going to try to go back to stock recovery to see if I can get it detected. Otherwise I would have to continue to use my email or micro adapter to transfer data.

    I forgot to mention that the USB does charge my phone but my wifes phone with my USB cord does everything. Do you think it might be the Micro USB port?

    The USB cord I used before mine stopped allowing me to connect had wires exposed and it starting smoking a lil bit... then it never worked again... I can charge too... and the same cord I use now works with 3 other devices... plus I've tried multiple cords on multiple computers... one thing that I've noticed is when I connect my USB to a PC the PC freezes... can't move the mouse or do anything until I disconnect my phone... definately USB is effed
