    ROOT AND CWM RECOVERY FOR ZTE CONCORD 2

    This would not be possible with out the ASEC exploit by jcase, if it was not for people like him, developers like ShabbyPenguin and myself would not be able to do any work on these phones, so we are grateful to him and you should be as well, please show your gratitude to him in some way, even if it just a post in this thread saying thank you.

    This exploit was taken from The Practical Android Exploitation document found here

    http://theroot.ninja/PAE.pdf

    It is a very interesting read, I recommend reading it if you are interested in Android security.

    Thanks to Koush for making ClockWorkMod source code, he is an awesome guy.

    Thanks to Chainfire for his SuperSU, he is awesome as well


    ShabbyPenguin and I worked on the recovery and recovery install script, which is specific to this phone.


    THE ZTE CONCORD 2 HAS SYSTEM WRITE PROTECTION, EVEN IF YOU HAVE ROOT ACCESS YOU CAN NOT RE-MOUNT THE SYSTEM PARTITION AS READ/WRITE WHEN YOU ARE BOOTED FROM THE "BOOT" PARTITION, THIS IS A FUNCTION OF THE BOOT LOADER AND IS BEYOND MY ABILITY TO RECTIFY

    HOWEVER

    IF YOU BOOT FROM THE "RECOVERY" PARTITION THE SYSTEM WRITE PROTECTION IS OFF, SO THREW A CUSTOM RECOVERY WE CAN INSTALL OUR ROOT FILES AND MAKE MODS TO THE PHONE AND SUCH


    THE IS ONLY FOR THE ZTE CONCORD 2 IF YOU USE THIS ON SOME OTHER PHONE AND BRICK IT, THAT IS YOUR PROBLEM FOR NOT READING

    FOR THOSE THAT ARE USING THIS ON THE ZTE CONCORD 2, ROOTING YOUR PHONE AND INSTALLING A CUSTOM RECOVERY WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY, AND IF YOU USE ROOT OR RECOVERY ACCESS TO DO SOMETHING ABNORMAL WITH YOUR PHONE AND BRICK IT, THAT IS YOUR PROBLEM, NOT MINE


    You need to have a Windows Computer for this.

    You need to have USB debugging enabled on the phone

    You need to have your phone plugged into your computer

    You need to have the ZTE USB drivers installed on the computer, when you have your phone plugged into a Windows computer, there should be an emulated CD drive that has the USB driver on it, run the setup.exe to install the USB driver

    Here is a video made by Wonderlust

    NEW VERISION 3 WITH UPDATED BATCH SCRIPT BY twig123
    https://mega.nz/#!GoFmmZQa!NuFYKdVivHU-1Fgk8-VEEG-45kN94QmBEy0tIoFpO4g


    old version
    ADA-ASEC-ROOT-CWM-V2


    Extract it to some location
    Double click the ADA-ASEC-Root.bat to install CWM and Root your phone



    The phone should reboot a few times, and go into CWM, and install root


    You will probably get a message in CWM about "Root access possible lost"

    You can choose "Yes fix root"



    Now you will have SuperSU installed, you will be rooted, and you will have Clock Work Mod installed

    This is how you can boot into ClockWorkMod

    From a powered off state hold Volume Up and Power Button and it will boot to CWM

    let me know if anything in the instructions was really confusing

    How did you get it to work? I couldn't get it yet. I installed the USB drivers, downloaded the files (put the folder and bat file on desktop). Phone is on USB Debugging. It is recognized by adb. When I double click the bat file, it opens up a cmd window and goes really fast and closes while the phone stays the same.

    edit the ADA-ASEC-Root.bat with notepad

    at the very end add

    pause

    then save the file and run it

    maybe we can see what the error is

    Hi,

    I get the status of rooted and superuser installed but I cannot uninstall the bloatware.

    When I try to uninstall something I get the message: rooted but can not grant rw permissionon system folder.

    Remove any external sd card you have in your phone.

    Dude this is amazing, thanks to you and everyone else involved! Your directions were great, but I did run into one little issue. For some reason, it wouldn't work until I removed my SD card. Everything works great now tho.

    So, whats the point of rooting if i cannot uninstall the bloatware?

    Also, there is no custom rom for it, I do not think there will ever be one since there isnt one for the Huawei Vitria yet either.
