    We have a rooting forum for the ZTE Zmax here with info:

    The two main advantages of rooting a phone are being able to put a custom ROM on the phone and the ability to install apps that require root.

    Two downsides - there is a small chance you can brick the phone, and if it's newer you may void the warranty.

    The root process is different for every phone, so follow instructions for your specific device. Here is more information about rooting:

    ROMs:
    Installing a different version of Android yourself requires putting whats called a custom ROM onto your phone/tablet. The custom ROM has to be made specifically for your device, unfortunately you can't simply download any version of Android.

    You can put a custom ROM on the phone after rooting it, check the rooting section for your phone:
