come on paul we want the details (and the romdump) get off the hannspree!

i'd be pretty interested in how you exploit droids, i assume you have a poke around with adb and see how you can get a script run as root - like a fake update image or overwrite an init script with loose permissions?

is the bootloader unlocked?

Wait for Paul to make how to guide. It might take awhile though.

There will be a guide either tonight or tomorrow. Hopefully it'll be quite straight forward for people.

sim unlocking has nothing to do with rooting. the blade unlocker apparently doesn't work on skate.

Has the rom been dumped yet ? If it has whats the situation on the Blade possible to install or is the kernel of use ? Also as this is obviously now available to buy in the UK via Orange has the source file been released officially by ZTE ?

first question here (hi all!):
if i root and install a new android rom, i need to unlock it or i can use it with other operator? The sim block is hardcoded by ZTE or is OS managed?

Not yet and the rom will be of no use for the Blade. No source yet but even if it was released it may not even support the Blade.
