the best root method for zte merit z990g no pc needed.. tell your friends :)
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

Thursday 24th of May 2012
Hello everyone, I have very unsuccessfully attempted to root my ZTE Merit Z990G. It appears to be similar enough to the ZTE Avail Z990 that I would assume I could ask for help here. I have tried all of the following on Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10:SuperOneClick with Zergrush (gets stuck at Step 7), psneuter (stuck at Step 5), and Motofail (stuck at Step 5)z4rootUniversal Androot Manually pushing the files onto the phone via usb and Terminal (says it is a read-only file system)Tried to do the T-Flash card as posted on this forum (verification check fails)Tried the whole *983*7668# thing (gave me an error)I cannot seem to find any custom rom or anything for this phone. The details of the phone is:Model Number: ZTE-Z990GAndroid Version: 2.3.5Baseband Version: Z990B01Kernel Version: 184.108.40.206-perf+zte-kernel@Zdroid-SMTBuild Number: Z990GV1.0.0B05Hardware Version: p5pbIs there anything I can do to root this phone? Thank you much for your help.Sincerely,Patrick M.
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
Galaxy Note 2 Wifi Issue. Not Receiving Packets. Please Help
Sunday 17th of March 2013
My wifi signal in my house is super strong on my phone. I have a Shaw wireless router. My wifi will work on my phone for about 10 mins and then it will time out. If I have facebook or google open it will work for a while then all of a sudden just sit there on the loading or updating page, or it will say page not found etc. If I turn off wifi then turn it back on immediately it works again for about 10 mins. Whenever it fails I can see on my phone it shows 3 bars of wifi and I can see the little up arrow sending packets. Yet the down arrow for receiving packets doesnt light up anymore. Is this a problem with my phone or with my wifi? Is there a way to run some sort of test on my phone to see if I have a certain program or virus blocking it? Please help, thanks in advance for any answers. Hopefully I can get this resolved it is getting very annoying.
zte merit z990g not charging
Wednesday 26th of June 2013
Not sure whats going on with this phone. I finally get it to where its not rebooting constantly by rooting it & installing a overclocked kernel by stayboogy to address the glitch causing rapid repeated reboots and now a new issue.Seems my media player quit and now when I go to charge it, it'll only charge for a few minutes then flash the battery with a red X on it. When I manage to get it charged, the browser gives me an error message resulting in internal error.Yea, so if anyone could possibly give me advice.....Id appreciate it so much!

Tuesday 30th of July 2013
ZTE Merit - Z990G - not receiving sms, please helpeverything else works flawlessly (mms both ways, web, sms send)This issue, which began a couple of weeks ago, and the lack of customer service of straight talk led me to these forums. And now I have successfully rooted my phone and and currently using stayboogy's blue steel 2.0.777.When the issue first began on the stock phone I search around trying to find a solution.I installed GoSms pro ... no diceThen I used the ST forums and eventually factory reset the phone, which temporarily corrected the problem. I reinstalled Gosms pro hoping that would prevent a future problem. The issue reoccurred around 2 days later.I then rooted the phone hoping that would solve the problem...no dice.Another factory reset and flashed stock merit rooted...no dice.I then flashed stayboogy's latest rom...no dice.Have cleared the messaging cache...no dice.Have installed History Eraser and History Eraser + and deleted all sms messages sent, received, draft and failed...no dice.EDIT: All APN info is correct. Also message service center number is correct.Any an
ZTE Merit z990g cannot use touchscreen after *983*29873283#
Sunday 29th of June 2014
After entering this code, got the message firmware updating do not touch screen. Waited awhile and rebooted the phone. Now my touchscreen does not work at all. Tried all types of custom roms listed on here and xda developers.Some time ago I remember doing something to the same phone and downloading P020111107491720801969.zip and it fixed the problem, thing is, all the links to this file are dead, I cannot find it anywhere after searching all day. I cannot access adb through shell because without being able to enable usb debugging, because of the touchscreen issue, this is not an option.Does anybody anywhere have the original zte merit z990g stock or any original firmware that I could just flash it back to through the recovery screen that comes up when pressing menu+vol up+power button?HELP!!!!!!!
