Is it true that Lollipop is unrootable? If it is, when will that be fixed?
I would suppose that is dependent on the device and carrier wouldn't it?
I mean, correct me if I am wrong, the Nexus devices are fairly easy to root on LL?
Yes, depends on device, probably also carrier if you buy branded devices. Some tools only work on some versions, but it's certainly possible to root Lollipop itself.
I'm asking more specifically about the ZTE Z987 (5.1) and Z813 (5.0.2).
The service provider is Cricket.
Merged your similar threads
Not familiar with those devices, but perhaps we have a forum for those?
For the ZTE Z987 take a look at this thread: http://androidforums.com/threads/lollipop-5-1-pre-rooted-update.937791/
As for the overture 2, it seems to be a more obscure device and I didn't find anything useful for that one.
