Today I bought a new phone called 'Monte Carlo'


My previous phone was a 'San Francisco', I used a guide on here to root the SF, however...I am unsure how to root the 'Monte Carlo'.


Is it worth it rooting my new phone?


The only reason I want to root is because I want to remove the default 'Orange' apps and services because my phone is slow and laggy, at this moment in time...its slower than the 'San Francisco'


Many thanks.

Ok thanks, do you recommend I do this if I am not used to rooting? Any advice is welcome because I don't want to destroy my phone, thank you.

May I ask which is safer? Installing clockwork recovery & flashing custom rom OR rooting and using anttek app manager as you have mentioned.

This is going to sound really stupid but...is there a guide to tell me when to connect my data cable etc, something like a step by step guide?

It's up to you really - a custom ROM will optimize performance as well as remove orange bloat.

I'll post a step by step guide later :)

http://android.modac...-the-zte-skate/ this is the link to pauls tutorial on rooting.

i would allso install clockwork recovery as it can be very handy, both are safe & have no reports of bricked phones..

i think flashing custom rom may be safest way & faster.

copy you custom rom to your phones sd card it should be a .zip

boot into clockwork recovery by powering you phone on and when the green android man shows up press and hold the volume down button untill small vibration then release, it should now boot in recovery.

volume buttons = up & down movements.
home button = select/ok
back button = go back

select wipe data/factory reset
press yes

select wipe cache partion
press yes

now select install .zip from sdcard

choose .zip from sdcard

navigate to you custom rom

select it and press yes

wait for it to install.........

select reboot system now. Posted Image
