how to get root rights to ZTE Roamer Android 2.3.4 . I have tried programs such as SuperOneClick and z4root, But unfortunately without success. Please help!!!!!

adb reboot bootloader

fastboot boot recovery.img

(Mount sdcard in recovery)

dump_image boot /sdcard/boot.img

Then you just have to root it manually as per normal.

(Split the boot.img into kernel and initramfs using boot-tools.zip or the binary that is in the CM7 universal convertor).

Change default.prop to look like this :

ro.secure=0

ro.allow.mock.location=1

ro.debuggable=1

persist.service.adb.enable=1

rebuild the initramfs and kernel together.

http://android-dls.com/wiki/index.php?title=HOWTO:_Unpack%2C_Edit%2C_and_Re-Pack_Boot_Images (is a more detailed guide if you need it).

fastboot flash boot new_boot.img

then

adb push Superuser.apk /system/app

chmod 644 /system/app/Superuser.apk

adb remount

then go into superuser and update su (You could change the permissions on the existing /system/bin/su (6755) but if its anything like the blade one it will have magicandroidapps spam so you probably don't want to).

Tested way to root your phone and get Clockwork Recovery:

-download and install drivers /artemfomin.blog.tut.by/files/2011/12/ZTE-Android-USB-Driver-5.2066.1.8.rar/ or /artemfomin.blog.tut.by/files/2011/12/android_usb_windows.rar/

-download clockwork /artemfomin.blog.tut.by/files/2011/12/CWM-5.0.2.3.-Recovery-ZTE-Roamer.rar/ and unpack it

-shut down the phone,turn it on again and when it vibrates hold menu button and volume down button to get in fastboot mode and connect it with pc

-open the cwm folder and start .bat file

-wait a bit and you have cwm recovery

-download update.zip /artemfomin.blog.tut.by/files/2011/12/update.zip/ and copy it to sdcard root

-shut down the phone,turn it on again and when it vibrates,hold menu button and volume up button and you'll enter clockwork recovery

-choose "install zip from sdcard" and scroll down to "update.zip", confirm with home button,wait,when it finnishes choose "reboot system now" and there you have it,rooted phone

I installed the driver but when you run . bat, is still waiting for the screen device. It is necessary to enable debugging?
