Default ZTE Reef (Virgin Mobile)

Any chance of getting this phone rooted before it becomes completely obsolete?

I just rooted my girlfriend's Reef in about 2 mins. I haven't yet messed with roms or recoveries yet, however, that will be a project for tomorrow. It's a pretty simple procedure, make sure your phone is set to allow apps from unknown sources, Google "Framaroot 1.4.1" from your phone's browser, then download the apk. Also make sure that if you have anti-virus on your phone, clear the defaults, as the apk will not install if you have it set to autoscan before install. Click the download in the notification bar when it is done, then install with "package installer". When done, open the program, install with "Superuser" (which is the default option at the top). My phone rooted with the "Gandalf" exploit. Reboot your device. Verify that "Superuser" shows in the app drawer, I also verify root with "Root Checker" by joeykrim.

Awesome, thanks! Will give this a try soon. Any reason for not using the latest version of Framaroot?

No specific reason, you could try the latest version if you so desire, that is just the one that I used.

Default Thanks!

Finally got around to playing with this device. Rooted successfully with framaroot 1.9.2 same method as you described.

Got any optimization tips?
