    @MasterChief,

    You might have missed it, but it looks like the current download from your server is the ZIP with all of the partitions. I didn't think you wanted that and obviously I'm not the guy to tell you if it causes problems, but I just wanted to make sure you were aware of it...

    There's a new KingRoot apk called v4.6.0 beta1 I have the ZTE Grand X Max+ running on OTA lollipop 5.1 here's the link for the latest apk see if it works for you since it doesn't for me scroll down and you'll see v4.5.2.928 then after a while it'll show an update for it and then you'll get the v4.6.0 beta1 apk http://androidxda.com/download-kingroot-application

    Hey guys. I also have the gand max plus with cricket. And I'm running into issues. Well I did get the kingroot to work for me but only for an hour or so. Downloaded twrp. But now that my phone lost the root, I'm having the hardest time rooting again. I've been trying for the last three days and I almost want to give up on it. But I know its possible to get it again. My guess is to completely get rid of twrp and factory reset my device. I did the clear cache multiple times. UN/Reinstall king root. It stops at 51% and tells me no root strategy. I'm lost in the sause.

    No luck. Do you think it will help if I got rid of twrp. Then start all over. I just don't want to run the risk of bricking it

    Wish I had found this BEFORE I did the ZTE update to 5.1.
    King Root will not allow me to root this phone as of yet. I guess you can root KitKat and then there is an rooted 5.1 over on XDA.
    Only want Root to get rid of the damn bloatware, and maybe someday get the FM radio working.
    Have to love this phone, big display, mega internal memory, and battery that last.

    That would probably work if I was still on Kit Kat 4.4.
    I up-dated my phone to 5.1 before I was this post, and the one you linked to.
    Hopefully someone will figure out a root for 5.1.:oops:

    Don't know about 5.1, but I know to root KitKat on this phone, I had to push the processor to its limits before using kingroot. I had 10 browser windows open as well as running most of the apps installed and running antutu as I ran kingroot. Maybe the system just isn't being bogged down enough.

    I have use this method on the MasterChief's new Lollipop Rooted ROM and it still works. BUT, when trying to get back into TWRP, I have to reuse the TWRP installer (I use this (WAAAYYY faster) TWRP ver 2.8.6.0 here: http://androidforums.com/threads/zte-zmax-twrp-new-version-2-8-6-0.918537/#post-6967171) to reinstall TWRP and then reboot into recovery.

    Using your method of r/w access also lets adaway write to the /system!!

    THANK YOU!

    Nice, there are some real cool boot animations through ROM Toolbox also. Glad everything working for you.

    Masterchief has scripts you can run in TWRP for r/w, much faster than typing it all in terminal, as well as being safer than constantly reinstalling TWRP over system

    In ROM toolbox, just save the above script. Instead of rebooting phone normal way, run the script and you will always have r/w

    I saved the script in mi-moment. I just copy and paste when I need r/w. Doesn't take long.
