    Hey all, just finally upgraded to an android and used the instructions by Interdpth but had failures on all fronts. Does anyone know of some comprehensive Mac instructions? Or could someone that has done it on a Mac throw me a quick bone?

    Thanks,

    SQ


    P.s. Here are my readouts in Terminal when I run WarpDrive. I have installed all drivers, turned on debug mode, etc.

    OCR for ZTE Warp

    Thanks to Revoultion and their zergs.

    I had the same problem and the same readout when I was rooting my buddies phone. Also I did root my buddy phone using windows. everytime I click run as administrator it would give me this readout so I ended up just clicking run and it worked. I don't know if this will help you cuz I don't know much about how a mac it is but that's what I did.

    Tried both, gave me different readouts, but still couldn't locate the "device."

    EDIT: Got it to WORK! Stoked. Thanks for the help.


    Here are the readouts for using Sudo. I've been unable to figure out what to do next, other then use a PC. Any ideas?

    this is the only way i can think of
    if you are on b08c this is the only way even on windows for now


    first
    if you have any app that requires usb(zte warp) such as easytether,doubletwist etc .... uninstall it !

    for easytether you can just type this in terminal

    to unload the driver
    sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/EasyTetherUSBEthernet.kext


    to reload [after you are rooted)

    sudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/EasyTetherUSBEthernet.kext


    now that you have these away

    download the zip i have attached and extract to the desktop ...

    make sure you have the zte driver installed ,unknown sources and usb debugging enable


    1. open terminal and type
    Code (Text):
    1. cd
    and drag&drop the support folder you extracted and hit enter

    now type
    Code (Text):
    1. adb kill-servers
    2.
    then type these code to install cwm

    Code (Text):
    1. adb reboot bootloader
    //wait till the phone shuts off and boot into bootloader(green android)

    Code (Text):
    1. ./fastboot-mac flash recovery recovery.img
    2.  
    3. ./fastboot-mac reboot

    3. now follow woodstock77 tut

    Code (Text):
    1. After you install CWM put [URL="http://www.mediafire.com/?gk7qe2qzi62k81h"]SuperUser.zip[/URL] on your sdcard then reboot into recovery. SuperUser.zip
    2. Choose install zip from sdcard.
    3. Then verify thats what you want to do.
    4. After install has completed reboot the phone.
    5. After the phone reboots you should have root.
    NOW IT should be root :p

    I thought I got it to work. But no go. Downloaded a root test and it said "sorry this device does not have proper root access."

    I then tried what you suggested above and it processed and rebooted (good results all around), but as soon as I got to Woodstock777's tutorial for CMW I got lost.

    I tried both the regular way, and the one click method for getting CMW, but neither seemed to work. I could easily be doing something wrong, but I followed as closely as I could. Any suggestions? Or would it be possible to get instructs that are a little...well, more aimed at an amateur? Ha : )

    Thanks, seriously, your above advice got me further towards my goal of ultimate control! After I of course learn more about how to use that control : )

    SQ


    Edit: I'm ******ed, I misread your directions. This IS for CMW. Gotcha. Ok, so did that, placed Superuser.zip on my SD card. Unzipped, installed, and it still wont register as Rooted. Is there a specific place i have place the Superuser.zip or something?

    This part doesn't seem to work. I placed the .zip on my SD card but how do I get it to go to recovery and unzip from there...cuz thats what it sounds like your saying, yes?

    "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."

    Don't unzip super user.zip
    Turn off your phone
    once its off push and hold ....power and volume + or - till you see cwm (looks an arrow and a hat ) if you don't see cwm you don't have it installed :D....


    Now just select install zip from sdcard accept it and reboot
