So i got one today its a basic flip phone. something that interests me is that its running a modified version of android so im wondering if it could be possible to run apks on it and if so could anybody do it?
I assume it doesn't have the developer options (settings > about > keep clicking on the build version), right?
Is it even android? While googling about it (didn't even know ZTE was still around) I found some people confusing the Cymbal G (the model you're asking for, which runs some other Linux variant) with the Cymbal T (android)
If it is running Android, it should say so and have a version string in the Settings somewhere. If it does, you should be able to enable Developer Mode and ADB somehow and then just `adb install` apks.
That said, I know nothing about this specific phone.
Can you provide more information (Screenshots, photos, links..) because I can't find any information about your model on the internet, googling for it just comes up with this thread.
zdroid does however appear to be both android and ZTE related, so you may be onto something.
Yup that is Android! Don't know which version, but I know android settings layout when I see it.
Is it possible to tap (Or select) the build number multiple times to enable Developer Mode?
Although apparently older versions of android have it under "Settings - Applications - Development" so maybe you could try that as well?
If you can enable USB Debugging, you can use that to sideload apks without needing a file manager and having to enable unknown sources and copy files and stuff, half of which wont be possible on a dumb phone I Imagine.
