    Just curious if there is a way to root the ZTE Score from MetroPCS.


    I'm a little confused as I've been seeing people post about removing the annoying little Metro PCS Easy Wifi App, but I don't know how they are doing this without rooting the phone? When I go to manage the apps, it doesn't give me an uninstall option on that one, as well as a bunch of other crap Metro force feeds these things.

    Another question.. Is the Score "M" the Metro PCS model? Is that what the M is for?

    Ahh okay, so the bloatware IS locked. And yes.. M for Metro. Sorry about the dumb question(s). This is my first Android phone. I'm slightly behind.

    something came up n well no root. Will update when something gets done that can be released ;)

    I do have CWM built to just need to test n debug it. ;) And unlike the cricket Score, I will be submitting this to koush so it will eventually have RM support ;) tho it will prolly work on both as the have the exact same model #.

    It appears so. I'm buying a new phone tomorrow. A month with the MetroPCS boatware complete with pop-ups will drive anyone nuts. At least now I know to do my research on what phones can be rooted before I buy. I think I assumed that since they all run Android they could all be rooted relatively easily. Not so much! :mad:

    I know buddy, I'm normally the most patient person in the world but I bought this phone for work and so far I haven't even been able to install a decent app to take care of my MS Office docs because of Metro's bloatware. They put so much crap on it that it only had 12mb free out of the 200mb that these things come with. I can't even move anything to the SD-Card because of the restrictions Metro uses.

    Got any ideas on how to free up some space? That would give me a shot at waiting for the root. I >really< don't want to go buy another phone to be honest. If I could free up some space at least I could get the apps I need on here. Errr.. Or maybe is there a way to install an app directly to the SD-Card? Anything that I saw an 'Uninstall' button for in the Application Manager, I uninstalled and that really only gave me a few megs..

    uninstalling apps from /system wont save you any space. youll still be left with 200MB. what kills you is all the crap updates, google maps is like 13 MB's and has a new version every other week

    Well I managed to free up 60mb so I'm happy for a few minutes. I've got what I need for work installed now...still amazes me that the Metro Clowns put that much crap on there. Don't they realize some people might want to install more than one or two apps?

    Out of curiosity, how much memory do the other -- maybe more expensive phones have?
