ZTE V9 Light (root,recovery mode) ****updated

I just got my hands on ZTE V9 Light yesterday...n i spend one afternoon to find out how to root it...damn its hard...

Specs for ZTE V9:

TFT resistive touchscreen, 256k color
480x800px (7 inches)
512MB ROM n 512MB RAM
SD card?upgradable
Camera 3.15MP rear
OS android 2.2
Battery 3400mAH
728MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor <--- ITS FREAKING LIE!! its only 600Mhz only realize it -,-'

The most common way to root from the internet is Univeral Androot...HERE...myb it work for 2.1 coz mine is 2.2 so...it didnt work at all...

So what i did is...i use SuperOneClick...HERE...to run it make sure u got the usb debugging is on...after it is done..u will fine the SuperUser icon in app drawer..but somehow it wont give u permission...so to overcome this problem..i use VISIONary PLUS...HERE....its kinda a temp root...but u can set to work everytime u boot...so it wont be a problem anymore...

For the recovery mode...go HERE and download the image, i use the 3.0.2.4-v9-g2....to push the recovery image..use this android flasher..HERE...it say it require S-off...just ignore it...open the app...thick the recovery...then choose the image file that u downloaded...then click begin....wait...until it say done/rebooting..


the tricky part is to go to the recovery mode....make sure u already install ROM Manager...from there...choose the reboot into recovery button...den the tablet will restart n when u see the ZTE white screen...push the Volume up button...den...walla....done... 


its very tricky...so if u got any question...post a comment...tq

i tried rooting using superclickone but its not responding on my zte v9a...what could be the problem?

Hariz Iskandar (hariz9511) said...

this step is for zte v9 only..not V9a :)

Hariz Iskandar (hariz9511) said...

even on my old zte v9 i cant used the superoneclick...so my solution is to use visionary+ to gain temp root

hi i was wondering if u can post a fool proof guide to rooting a zte v9a as it comes with alot of bloat ware an apps that open in th back groud so i woul likw to root it, however im a total noob need step by step guide to rooting zte v9a

Hariz Iskandar (hariz9511) said...

@irry

u do realize that ZTE V9 and ZTE V9A is two different model right?

ZTE V9 (shipped with 2.1)
ZTE V9A (shipped with 2.3)

if u need to root it..try superoneclick on my previous comment

to remove other bloatware..install titanium backup from playstore..but need root permission to freeze the bloatware..

and for recovery mode..im not sure..i didn't google yet for ZTE V9A recovery.img

*just follow the step from SUPERONECLICK to gain root, but make sure to tick the android debugging first..if u need anything..u can always email me directly at hariz9511@gmail.com

good luck
