    Wow ok so, despite my complete and utter ignorance in beginning this whole process and the fact that I really think my Score is, well, just SUCKIER than all the others in the world (no idea, really) and all the bumps and bruises and obstacles and roadblocks along the way, I think I got the phone successfully rooted, CWM recovery flashed, 2 backups made, one before and one after bloatware removal.

    THen I put the scor3d rom on the sdcard and installed from zip and it said successful and I've rebooted the phone.

    Am I supposed to be seeing anything different, now? It looks like the same old phone. I was expecting dancing girls and missile launchers, but instead everything is the same. Is that supposed to happen? Granted, I've only looked at it for like 10 seconds to make sure the apps and settings are the same but everything looks the same. What is this rom? Why?

    Anyone?

    Ok differences are some of the bloat I removed seems to have reappeared, but rom installation confirmed when I go to phone info and see the build number "Scor3d".

    further edit after reading up on the rom and what deodexed is... so this is a basic rom, with some capabilities. Like a starting point...

    At the time I needed sc0r3d so adobe flash would work in the Dolphin web browser. I don't know if there is a new Adobe Flash that works on the stock rom.

    I would try Googling zerg's root oneclick for this device I have used it to root a few scores and always had success with it and at least to me it seems like more than half the links on this post don't work. Hope this can help :-)

    ZTE Score x500



    As always i am not responsible if your phone breaks. With that out of the way:
    Also, I am going to state this is not a HowTo...I am merely sharing links I found useful in rooting and flashing the zte score x500 with the intention of actually sharing a rom I made using cwm on my rooted zte score x500. My friend is also using the same rom and it will be going on another phone on Monday.

    On a side note if you are having trouble rooting this phone. The windoze driver for the ZTE phones is actually on the phones. Plug your phone into your computer and goto MyComputer. Right Click where it says autorun and open. The Setup.exe file is your drivers. You might have to Turn on USB Storage and USB debugging for it to show up, but its there.

    For Linux users go here:

    Setting Up ADB/USB Drivers for Android Devices in Linux (Ubuntu) Esau Silva



    zergRush script can still be used in Linux as well (70-android.rules works in Debian as well). Just open the .bat file that you would normally use in windoze in a text editor and use the adb commands in that file. Either be in the zerg rush kit folder or if you are in platform-tools be sure to copy androidterm.apk, SuperUser.apk, su, zergRush, and busybox to the platform-tools folder so the files are available for the push without having to type out the folder location every time.
    Rooting will require you have USB Debugging on. In settings > Applications > Developement
    zergroottoolkit can be found here:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/l6xiznya04...ush%20root.zip




    Then there is a thread here that has destructions on how to setup cwm as well here:
    [GUIDE][CWM] ZTE Score X500 (Cricket & MetroPCS)

    If for some reason the img file and the flash_image are giving you trouble. CWM 5 can be found here:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/h45b51q1sk...e_X500_CWM.zip



    Also, remember after flashing cwm recovery on your phone to get to it you need to turn your phone off and turn it on while you hold down the camera button, volume down and the power button at the same time until the recovery screen comes up. The recovery screen is where you can make a backup of your phone and restore it. There are many other options as well.
    Always be sure you have a full battery before starting any of this. Volume Buttons navigate up and down the list. Camera selects the option and The power button is the back button. Just be sure you have a backup before you play around.

    And finally the reason I was posting here.
    A complete re-work of the previously posted rom has been done. Went back to the default Rom and only removed the bloat.

    Removed:
    -Games (bubble blast and Uno)
    -Gmail (can be checked and properly deleted in the browser)
    -Maps
    -Street View
    -Photobucket
    -Muve Music
    -File Manger

    Added:
    -X-Plore File Manager
    -Root Uninstaller

    Notes:
    -System Size prior to Google Play and Google Search update is around 13mb. Goes up to 24mb once update is complete. Google Search was left on for the convenience of the hardware search button.
    -I recommend not updating Superuser. The SU binary will be recognized as out of date if you update the Superuser App.
    -Default Live Wallpapers and other Wallpapers have been left on for easy backgrounds.
    -All programs have been made into system programs prior to Google Search and Google Play updates. Once they update they will be in the Downloaded list.
    -Keyboard has reverted back to the android keyboard. If you would like to use the XT9 keyboard goto messaging and hold down on the text input and change the input method.

    Here is the link for the new rom:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/66eznuwkvv...oniztex500.zip




    Up and coming changes:
    -Boot screen so it no longer says Muve Music
    -Flash and Browser

    Drop me a line or make a comment on this thread and let me know whatcha think if you use the rom. Feedback is useful.
    This is a scratch-my-own-itch project that I am simply sharing...I am not looking for donations.
