Tried Bin4ry on ZTE Valet but it failed to root
I've had the phone a couple of days so far and while I'm by no means a qualified reviewer of smartphones, I do like the ZTE Valet. I'm too cheap to pay the $70-100 USD/month for a post-paid service that I don't need.
After searching the forums and seeing that no one reported trying to root the phone, I took a brave pill and tried the Bin4ry
method (v31). I got the same message that many users reported - after rebooting, it fails to mount and copy the necessary files. Both the new standard method and the old method failed. It did no apparent harm to the phone - just didn't work. Here's some details on the phone I have:
Android version 4.1.1
Kernel 3.4.0-perf zte-kernel@Zdroid-SMT
Thanks for any ideas or advice.
