Seriously, I left it sitting all night to see if it would ever start to download. The help section says that it's stalling on Driver Verification and to disablle it, but it makes no difference. I have trouble believing that's the problem since it won't even download the driver, how can it even try to "verify" it. Besides that fact that I have the latest driver from the manufacturer and have tried the one from the link in their help pages to the ZTE driver. Is there no command line option to skip the driver installation and just see if it will run? I know i can access it by adb. OR does anyone know of a method to root this thing manually? I'm not skeered to use terminal and dox boxes, but I'd rather not do it blind. THis phone is nearly useless to me without root especialy since i just figured out why I get no signal... It's a damn T-Mobile based device. It's doesn't say this ANYWHERE on the box or documentation. I should have researched it first as I usually do, but I got too excited by the idea of a droid for $20. I thought, at least if it doesn't work, it will be a toy for my 5 year old... But even he will want to install more than 1 teeny app LOL
With a custom 4.2 or later rom and good signal this thing would be.... OK... not great, but not too bad either. It isn't all that slow as I was afraid. Kit Kat might be great on it
Will a root method from any other ZTE devices work for the Midnight? I read that it might possible be the same as the ZTE Concord from t-mobile, but I tried a root method for it using a jcase update.zip, but it did not work. I'm at a loss. I've never had this much trouble getting one rooted. Apparently this device just wasn't popular enough
