    I need help trying to root my Avail Z990G, I'm just trying to get off the bloatware stuff and that's all I want to do. I have no clue on how to root or what to do. I've hacked my wii before to play all the stuff, so I know how to do something when given the information. I just don't know what I need or what I need to type to get this thing rooted. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Oh and it would be nice to move pre-installed apps like facebook over to the SD card

    My ZTE is a roamer, but is in fact equivalent to avail with less ram and Android 2.3.5

    I have a ZTE Merit z990g Straight Talk from Walmart and have been able to root it. A developer Justin Case has provided a solution on the XDA Devlopers site. Go to h t t p: // forum xda-developers com/showthread.php?p=27629905#post27629905 for the solution.
