I have just bought a ZTE Skate (same as Orange Monte Carlo in UK)

I am trying to root this but on my Mac, it does not find the device, even though I can see the volume and browse its contents.

Thoughts please?

This is still stock at present. Happy to do a romdump and post it if I can get the Mac to see it :)

the romdump needs doing before rooting the phone else the dump will be near useless

he is willing to do the dump first, but is having trouble with mac finding the device to do a rom dump

although he could use the terminal method from the phone

Still trying this.

However, when I try to use the cat command, it says permission denied.

It appears I do not have sufficient rights without rooting the device, which of course is the whole point :(

Any thoughts please?

change the title of your post to, [PROBLEM ROOTING FACTORY UNLOCKED SKATE, USING MAC]

should draw more attention smile.gif
