    ZTE Score X500



    Umm... I think i may have borked my Score entirely...

    Is it possible to break a phone to the point where it's "rooted" but doesn't have Superuser, and is lacking in the recovery mode department? I may have ruined this thing entirely, because when i do the finger gymnastics to get it into recov. mode, it just FREEZES on the ZTE logo, and does nothing else.

    So yeah, i'm half-rooted, no superuser, and no recovery mode. Great.

    In the words of many lolcats, I ask of this community: HALP.

    But you can get into the phone right? As in it boots up all the way to the home screen?

    If you have a windows computer you could try using the modified zerg rush I've posted. This would take care of the root and recovery problem. And in my opinion is the easiest way to root and install recovery on this phone. Anyway here's the link to zerg post. Hope this helps

    @stedman420, thanks, I'll try that.

    @adj998, yup, it boots up alright, just no recovery mode.

    Its just scary that recovery is just gone.

    FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU

    the zerg rush worked... sort of. when it's done, the phone boots up fine, but when i try and draw my pattern, it decideds to reboot... into a boot loop. it's like this is ZTE's way of telling me "YOUR PHONE WILL NEVER BE ROOTED!"

    If zerg worked then you should have custom recovery just boot into recovery and factory reset then you can install a rom while your at it too. (after making a backup of course) This should fix any problems your havin but will wipe your data. Hope this helps
