Just bought the Straight Talk ZTE Merit.


Thursday 10th of May 2012 / justanswer.com
Just bought the Straight Talk ZTE Merit. I wanted it to speak the name of the person calling... but now it speaks EVERYTHING!!! Even reads my messages out loud! Is there any way to have it JUST speak the caller's name? Also, I had my email set up so that when I hit the icon it opens right up. Since my phone is 'sometimes' shared, I decided I'd rather have to put in my password XXXXX time. Can you help me figure this one out too? I am NOT savvy with these things. Please help in simple terms that even 'dummies' can follow... ?Also on the ZTE Merit, I want it to alert me when I receive texts and of course phone calls ONLY. Right now it alerts me with every email too! How do I get it to stop the email notifications, and also show me onscreen when I receive a text and when I miss a call???? SO much to learn about this phone!! Already Tried: Everything I know to try...

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


Tuesday 01st of January 2013 / androidforums.com
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 cwm6.0.3.5. 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

is there way other than ADB to root ZTE Merit?


Saturday 06th of October 2012 / androidforums.com
I have a net10 ZTE Merit (same as Avail) but all the times i try using adb none work. either i get a blank list of devices when doing 'adb devices' or i get 'error: no device found' on the command 'adb shell' and i'm lost. i tried Gingerbreak and it just froze. is this phone unrootable? Windows 7 on the PC running ADB has a generic 'ZTE Mass Storage' driver installed, when i try to update it to a file for ZTE phones, it fails saying 'the device cannot start' and reinstalls the generic mass storage driver. i am sure this is part of the problem but i have no other PCs running any other copy of Windows.EDIT: sorry, i feel like a dork. there is a 'CD Drive' showing up under 'F:' that has the proper drivers for USB Debugging and now adb finds it. weird. all my other rootings have been done using software one clicks. i'm so new to CMD hacking....

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: 2.6.35.7-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.

Sunday 07th of October 2012 / androidforums.com

Worse if I moved from the porch rail all signal is lost and does not come back Grrr . Just wondering what network your merit says under about phone, phone status. Thanks

What exactly does update.zip consist of? ZTE MErit boot-looped at Android System Recovery


Thursday 26th of July 2012 / androidforums.com
What exactly does update.zip consist of? My merit is boot looped at "Android System Recovery". (ASR)It is a ZTE Merit 990 on Straight Talk. I believe I flashed a wrong ROM. When the phone boots up, it displays the "Rethink Possible" logo for about 10 seconds(had one.three flashed originally) and then it goes straight to ASR. I've attempted to create an Update.zip from different roms and stuff floating around on this forum and elsewhere, but the end result for all of them is "installation aborted".I have another ZTE Merit on the way just in case my soft-bricked Merit happens to be permanently bricked. But I intend to at the least make a nandroid back-up of the phone before any of my info is put onto the phone, and make it available to all. Also wondering if somebody can guide me to documentation that will explain how to create a ROM image, to also make the original ROM available to others. I know there are others who are also looking for the original ROM for the Straight Talk ZTE Merit 990.Lastly, rescuing my phone absolutely has to be done through Update

Tuesday 30th of July 2013 / androidforums.com
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.
