I have recently upgraded from the zte blade to this acer liquid mt phone. However, im having trouble finding a full guide of how to root in this forum (the zte blade forum has a beginners guide pinned at the top so I would recommend this).

I have installed all the drivers I need on my computer. I also have the Acer Download Tool. Can I just flash a new rom with this or do I need to root first? Does flashing a new rom automatically root the phone?

I am familiar with Clockworks Mod from the zte blade but I havent seen it mentioned on here. Can I use Clockworks Mod on this phone? Could I also install roms from Clockworks if I want to or does it have to be on the Acer Download Tool?


Thanks

UPDATE:


I managed to install a custom rom onto the phone: Acer_LiquidMT_3.009.01_EMEA-GEN1_03.09.02.bin

However, I still cant root the phone :(

I tried using SuperOneClick 2.1.1. It gets to Step 6 or 7 but hangs.

I also tried z4root but that crashes.

Is there any other way to root the phone?


Thanks

install recovery and flash su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip
this has to be done every time, you install a new official rom/leak.

our custom roms here are rooted
have fun :)
