I had done some research on getting larger (14 MB and bigger) apps to install from the Market
on ZTE Racer. Although the procedure was tested I cannot be responsible if something goes
wrong. There are removal instructions too, just look at section C). Any feedback appreciated!

A) Root your device (ie. enable administrator privileges) - only needs to be done once
  • On your device, open the Browser app and type in http://tinyurl.com/androot162 and press Go
  • When you get Download complete, press on UniversalAndroot-1.6.2-beta5.apk
  • Press Install, then Open, then Go Root and wait until the process completes
B) Move the Cache partition to Internal Storage
  • From the Market, install Android Terminal Emulator by Jack Palevich
  • Open the app and type in the following two letters: su and press Enter
  • If you are then asked whether to Allow or Deny, choose Allow
  • Carefully and exactly type the following commands and press Enter after each line:
    (If the keyboard disappears, get it back by pressing Menu -> Toggle soft keyboard)

    mount -o remount,rw rootfs /
    umount /cache
    rmdir /cache
    mkdir /data/cache
    ln -s /data/cache /cache
  • You should now be able to install much larger apps from the Market until you reboot
    your device - then section B) has to be repeated starting with step 2.
    This would be the time to try installing Talking Tom, Angry Birds...
C) (Optional) Complete removal instructions
  • Turn the device completely off and on again by holding the power button
  • Find the Android Terminal Emulator app in the app drawer and run it
  • Type su, then Enter, then rm -r /data/cache followed by Enter
  • Go to Settings, Applications, Manage Applications, Android Terminal Emulator, Uninstall
  • Find the Universal Androot app in the app drawer and open it, then press Undo Root
  • Go to Settings, Applications, Manage Applications, Universal Root and press Uninstall
