ZTE Skate

13 posts in this topic

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 :)

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

I couldn't get my Mac to detect the device either, had to use the wife's WIN7 netbook.

Tried on Leopard (PPC) and LION (Intel) no joy.

please dump without clockwork or rooting so the devs can use it for moding...

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?
