First, thanks for all the effort you put into these ZTE phones. It's much appreciated.

Having tried and failed to root phone using DooMLoRD's Easy Rooting Toolkit [v4], I have tried your method above and don't think it has worked .

The steps I took were:

1)Download and unzip to sdcard/image the file http://files.podtwo....AV1.0.0B06.zip. This left a file called image in that folder.

2)Perform update as in steps 3 and 4 in your method.

3) Repeat 1&2 for the file http://android.podtw...secure_boot.zip

Connectbot suggests that the phone is not rooted.

$su

gives the following output:

su: access granted, courtesy of www.magicandroidapps.com

su: permission denied.

Superuser app detects there is a new su binary but cannot update, failing as follows:

Gaining root access...

Checking installed version = fail!

Have I done this process wrong? Phone is showing a build number of TUREISV1.0.0B02 and otherwise seems to be functioning fine.

Many thanks in advance.

That is the version of SU is the one that comes with the device, not the one that is compatible with ChainDD's superuser app.

the best way to tell if your rooted is to type 'id' from adb.. it should give you a value of user 0.. thats root

what you need to do is using adb..


adb remount
adb rm /system/bin/su[/code]

then try to update the version of SU.

Thanks for the response. I'll try this and see how it goes.

This doesn't work with the Gingerbread ROM. I tried the ZergRush exploit, but it didn't work either. Is there no way to root this device? It's like 1 1/2 years old, there must be a way.

I am currently trying to build Cyanogenmod 7 for the Tureis.

The BoardConfig is nearly done, but some of the proprietary vendor blobs and bluetooth includes are missing, so it doesn't build yet.

You can try adjusting my BoardConfig from here:

https://github.com/s...e_device_tureis

If you find all blobs, a build should be possible.
