Everything seems to go good and the script completes, but no root or Superuser installed. I've tried both Option 1 and 3.

Edit: I've tried redownloading as well and it doesnt fix the missing folder issue.

The first one I rooted worked fine. But the second one I did had the same problem. I actually downloaded SuperSu after rooting and everything works. It seems like the script didn't finish all the way. But it did work in the end.

True, but I have been searching for that update.zip :)

Good news for us. And me seeing how I have two of these phones. Android Police is reporting an upgrade to Android 4.1 being rolled out now. Share if you have received it.... Here is the link
[link clipped since im a new user]

Yeah I've been finding that story since the day it popped up while searching! A custom rom would be nice, but I'm just at least looking to upgrade to jellybean while keeping my root :D (ota rootkeeper shall work to do that as long as it isn't a complete /system partition wipe, but just installs over it as it says) either way I'm sure there's still some exploit or some way to root again regardless on the newer jellybean OS for the ZTE n9500 aka Flash ;) (I rooted via the remount timing issue exploit, it might still not be fixed even in the version they're upgrading us too)

I also find its hard to find roms for it as it's called the 'flash' lol and that's common with 'flash a rom' etc rather than a specific phone so I've had a little better luck using ZTE n9500 though still not enough to find a rom or stock rom any recovery or anything for it... also because there's a similar title phone called the 'STAR n9500' so ugghh... it is frustrating looking for stuff on this particular device

I got an update notification, that a update was available, about a week after that article started surfacing around the net. but I can't seem to download the update for some reason... someone who has the ZTE Flash n9500 get OTA Snatcher and upload the update.zip for me and others please!



The signed (I think right?) update.zip to upgrade us to jellybean should be in the ~/cache folder or /cache (["~/" for some reason on android refers to the root rather than the /home/user/ directory])

Also it doesn't seem clear which version exactly we are getting it's just 4.1.x, so someone who's updated already can clarify that for us, and please upload the update.zip and to a good number of mirrors ! ;) thank you!

[link clipped since im a new user] any luck? And are you 100 percent sure that this root works with the Flash? Please reply.

you still need it..


anyone interested in ZTE flash development. please let me know.. Anyone I have figured to backup complete stock dump..
next plan is to develop recovery for it? but i need help & testers...

I hope there are some testers. I would but I had already returned mine once. Now I would have to pay the deductible if I mess it up again.

    Agreed, I wish we could get a developer community on this phone. Only thing I miss about my old Optimus S is there were plenty of ROMs available :p
