Not working
I can't even get past step 2, I have the file installed and unzipped on both my computer and my smart phone. The only thing I can find to put in the codes is command prompt which says "error: device not found" when I type in adb shell. My ZTE Merit phone has very low internal memory due to all the retarded system apps that came on the phone, I would very much like some assistance removing them from my phone. I also downloaded superuser elite onto my phone and it doesn't show up with ANYTHING. The first page says
superuse v3.1.3(46)
tap to display changelog
elite installed
su binary not found
a check in the box "outdated binary notification
unchecked box, temp unroot (When tapped it does nothing)
unchecked box ota survival (Again when tapped it does nothing)

I scroll over to the apps section of the program and it says "No apps in list"
What am I doing wrong? This lack of space is quite irritating

SIM Carrier unlock a ZTE Merit Z990G Straight Talk
I'm currently a T mobile prepaid customer and received the Merit from a friend of mine for doing some painting. I have looked for a month now and had a few unlock websites fail at attempting to unlock the phone via the IMEI (which the phone does have ). I have attempted to put my tmobile sim in the Merit but there is NO place to enter an unlock code. I really DONT wanna change my service to straight talk and would be willing to pay a decent amount to anyone that is capable of unlocking this phone for use with tmobile. If you think you have what it takes PM me and i will give you the IMEI and we can work out a deal. I challenge ANYONE achieve the impossible and get me the unlock code and a way to input it into the phone.

Can't get SU to upload
Hey I'm new to rooting android. I get to the point of installing SU but windows keeps telling me file not found. Would really like some help in fixing this issue. I have installed SU file to C:\Android\android-sdk\SU. Up to this point everything works fine.
adb push su /system/xbin/su
adb shell chown 0.0 /system/xbin/su
adb shell chmod 06755 /system/xbin/su
Any help would be really appreciated.
Thnks

Help getting Started
Hey Anyone and everyone that may be online, I have a real quick and probably REALLY EASY question for ya... I'm trying to get started Rooting my ZTE Merit and I need to find out how to get to or where to find the screen where I type in the commands. I already downloaded the chainsdd zip file. So now I'm supposed to get shell with adb. If someone would be so kind and put me in the right general direction, I sure would
be grateful.

Thanks in advance,
Jason
