I mean, if you can do it, then that works. But one thing I thought of though is that whatever the method is, it has to be easy enough for everyone with a gabb to replicate. The vast majority of people won't be able to do this stereotypical hacking (probably myself included)

Sir, installing software on the phone is PRECISELY what hacking is...
And you use a labtop to do it...
And if it was as simple as opening the apps on a PC and downloading them on the phone we wouldn't still be here trying to figure this out.

There are some VERY SMART people working on this project. If you have a VERY SMART idea, feel free to share it. If you managed to find a magic labtop that can hack a phone without doing anything to it (like you suggested doing) then by all means, feel free to share it with us. Otherwise, please just be patient.
Bro. If I had the time to do this I would, and I would use Kali linux to hack it and lowkey just downloading software is not really hacking just saying. And you don't need a magical laptop all you need is some brain g.
And there is most defiantly a way to open apps on a PC we just haven't found it yet. Also don't tell me to be patient I have been waiting this whole time, so just don't.

I would like to formally apologize for my rude remark. I had a bad day and falsely took out my frustrations online.
I don't want to be that person that brings people down. I'm sorry I told you to be patient, and I'm sorry for not taking the time to understand what you were saying.

I figured it out! (September 22nd, 2021)
I know this thread is a little outdated, but my theory is that is you download a new ROM made for the Gabb ZTE Z2 and download it, you will bypass all the restrictions.

The problem with that is that we tried it already and we couldn't flash the new ROM to the phone. Howl1346 said that we might even need USB debugging to flash the ROM, which is troublesome because we are trying to flash the ROM so we can enable USB debugging

Sadly yes, we tried that. Formatting the phone entirely is probably the only way for that to properly work. Something I do NOT recommend until I can try it myself to be sure. Good idea tho m8!

You guys, something I just thought of is Gabb is almost certainly monitoring this thread so do you think we should migrate this project to somewhere else? It wouldn't help if they are one step ahead of us. This forum is on the top of the list when you search 'How to hack a gabb phone'

Anyone else in favor?

I had to come up with a little security process to make sure that Gabb doesn't just follow us into the chat. I think this method will work. I'm using Google Chat (Disclaimer: This is different from Google Hangouts) to create a chat for us to continue this discussion.

Shoot me an email if you want to be added. Make sure to tell me what your profile is on this thread so I can find if you've already sent a message in the thread. I will then start a conversation with you on XDA to confirm that you are the person you said you were in the email (all for protection purposes :)) Then after the confirmation I will add you to the Google Chat.

If you haven't made a message in this thread yet, sorry but this method will offer the best protection against Gabb moles. If you have a friend in this forum that is in the Google Chat, they can vouch for you and I can add you.

My email:
[email protected]

It's time we started playing Gabb's game.

    Lol, i love your profile pic! and yes, if we uncover any new methods of cracking the phone, ill post em up on XDA. We`re also looking into disabling the updater, that way nothing gets patched!

    You guys might want to rethink this, as it seems to be impossible. When in the permissions menu for the Software Update app, it does not allow alteration of any permissions, saying "Device requires this permission to operate." It also does not appear to be possible to force stop the app. I can post screenshots if needed.
    That's strange, Mr. Macphisto said that he was able to do it.....
    I'll talk to him about it, there really just cannot be any easy ways of doing anything on this phone!
    (it's almost like it was locked down lol)

    Alright, so I'm new here. Just came from iqlessmeme's video. I actually have a gabb phone given to me by my parents and I really want to crack it, as they won't let me buy my own. How's it going around here? Any way to enable USB debugging with the new update?

    I think this tutorial might work.

    I have an idea. Go into android recovery (power and volume up buttons) and select the wipe data/factory reset option. Just know your parent (might) have to enter the email address associated with the phone. I have never done that because I never had a reason to but just select that option and it may downgrade it.

    I think our goal for now should be to get a package installer working
    I think GMS might be trying to self update which could be causing the crash

    Can someone create a phone edited image of it so I can get an answer?
    enjoy 👍
