Tuesday 01st of January 2013
I am not responsible for any problems that you may encounter with this method.Please understand this is at your own risk. i did not write any of the files i just hunted them down, was tired of my merit being plain jane. clockwork mod is a recovery program that has a few more options than factory recovery. This is a proven method of rooting the zte merit z990g from straighttalk with no pc. All from the handset. It is proven to work on many of these android phones.Below will be links to all files that you will need to dL for this task. I will also attach a deodexed stock merit rom.I recommend using this big time. Before doing anything enable usb debugging, and Unknown sources in development. settings/applications/developmentWhat you want to do is download the update.zip and store it to the root of the sdcard.this file location should read sdcard/update.zip. this will give you a nonroot version of cwm188.8.131.52. how to load up cwm you hold power, volume up, and menu button(3 slashes) until the factory recovery starts about 10-15 seconds. using the volume down go to the wipe/factory reset a

Random freezing and app crashing Straight Talk ZTE Merit Z990G.
Saturday 18th of August 2012
Hello,I am new here and this is my first post. I don't know anything about these smartphones so please excuse me if my terminology is incorrect in some aspects. I have recently purchased a Straight Talk ZTE Merit Z990G from Walmart. The problem I am having is it seams like it is constantly freezing up all the time. Like whenever I play games like words with friends, dice with friends, and other of the "with friends" games. However, I have had this happen with other games and apps as well. I'm wondering if this is simply just because there is multiple apps running at all times? I know these things don't have much memory at all. However, I don't understand how you close apps when your done with them. It also seams there are a lot of junk apps installed on the phone that are constantly running that I have no clue what they are. Could someone tell me if it is safe to remove these, and which ones can be safely removed? I would also like to get into rooting this phone but I have absolutely no clue about how to do so. A lot of the stuff is over my head. However, I do work on a lot

Title basically says all. And if it possible, is there a way to guide me through, because I have never rooted before and very cautious on doing this.
