    Cool New guy, new Cricket ZTE - How to hack it better??

    Hi!

    I just found this phone for 29 dollars at best buy - Cricket Muve ZTE Score.

    I did not allow them to activate at as I do not want to use it as a phone. I was shopping for a mp3 player when I stumbled on this on slickdeals and now I just want a nice little android device/mp3/movie/game thingy for me and my daughter (4yrs old) to use.

    So, I have come here knowing nothing about this stuff. I have read a few things here and figure that my first step should be to root it and get rid of the garbage.

    What should I do next? Any links, advice, things to read, etc etc etc....

    Thanks much for the help!!! Its currently charging, and I have yet to even turn it on - figured I would give the battery a good full charge before using it.

    First and foremost it's ZTE not LTE.

    My bad. You are correct.

    Now, any chance you can offer any other advice?

    I was able to gain root. Using superoneclick 2.3.? I tossed the 4gb muve card and put a different one in. I installed the free version of ROM Toolbox and got rid of some things I thought would be safe, a few I wasn't sure... but it seems to be working well still. I also changed the default install location to be the micro sd card with this tool and changed my start screen... so fancy...

    I tried to install sc0re and CWM with ROM Toolbox but that didnt do anything, so I gave up and went to bed. Will try more tonight I guess. Just winging it out here me and google.... Is there a definate list of bloatware I can safely remove? And I am not completely sure why I need CWM or sc0re, but I see everyone else doing it, and I guess if I want flash to work I need to put sc0re on?

    Anyone recommend a good media player? The default one doesnt seem to have an EQ and sounds kinda crappy. Was thinking about Winamp, but I remember back in the day it being a resource hog.

    I must say having never done anything like this before leaves me holding my breath during every reboot.
