I've found a root solution from VOODOOS!L in another topic here on modaco:•Download 'unlockbootloader.exe' from http://www.modaco.co...ch_id=81949
•Run 'unlockbootloader.exe' and click 'ROOT Your Phone' - a console will appear and then close, after this open the app drawer and check that Superuser.apk has been installed OK, if so, you now have root.
•Run 'unlockbootloader.exe' again and this time click 'Unlock BOOTLOADER' - you should see the capacitive buttons flash on your phone and the app will close on completion.
•Power off your phone, remove battery for a few seconds and replace, then power on whilst holding vol. down and power to go in to fastboot - the phone will hang on the splash screen whilst in fastboot.
After reboot I got a static white FTM screen, no reaction of the phone anymore so I thought it would be death. I booted into recovery console (Power on while holding volume up) and selected 'whipe (sic) cache' option. Rebooted the device and everything worked fine with root access!
Brilliant. Worked perfectly for me. And here's something else interesting - painful but interesting - if you use the system update function, and it downloads the 200+MB file and installs, then it automatically unroots your phone in the process. Therefore I have had my phone rooted twice now, using this method both times. But that's not the painful bit. The painful bit, is that it deleted all my apps in the process. Nothing on your SD card gets touched though, so *sigh of relief*. But if your ZTE R22 is becoming slow, go for it,.
