    KingRoot 4.9.5 locked my phone the same way. I haven't tried 4.9.6 yet on it because it's my only phone and I don't want to mess it up again. I think I'm going to give up until I get a different phone. HTC is a phone that keeps the bootloader unlocked without voiding the warranty as far as I know. Hopefully boost mobile carries a good model.

    Yeah, don't feel like resetting it again. Does anyone know if the LG Stylo 2 or the Galaxy J7 have root?

    ZTE n9518 root with KingRoot 4.9.6
    I just got root. Not sure if it is complete or if it will last. Is there anything I should do next?

    You're gonna have to hard reset, idk why I tried that shit. Just like last time. Not messing with KingRoot again until I know it can root 100%

    You were right. Shortly after root it shut down and needed hard reset. I'm restoring everything now. I thought I really had it this time. I took one for the team!

    If someone actually looked at the ZTE Bootloader at it's source code. It is locked because the UICC unlock feature has been disabled via Android OS side, therefore root cannot be obtained through a phone restart/power cycle.

    The bootloader "ZTE" logo (that loads before "carrier/provider" logo screen) remains locked by "ZTE Consumer Electronics"

    If someone was a master at manipulating bootloader code they could easily unlock it. ZTE is in the technological business for one thing "your money."

    Outsmart them. Learn what needs to be learned and get this thing rooted for the love of everything good! I would love to OC the craaaap outta this phone. I already have water tight custom cooling case for it and Graphene pad installed. Just waiting patiently for two years now and still no root. I'm still patiently waiting for this phone to be rooted. Hopefully before the tech is considered majorly obsolete. :rolleyes:

    As I understand, The bootloader is locked because it was made specifically for its carrier. Which mean ZTE has nothing to do with it, it's the carrier that locks them.

    Negative. ZTE manufacturer started implementing their own security locks last year on their Bootloaders because of people bypassing/disabling the carrier Bootloader lock, rooting, and obtaining super user on phones. I will post screens of the data once I recompile ZTE Bootloader without the lock or find a way to disable it. Then root with kingroot.

    I have temp root with pc version of kingo. I dumped the stock recovery image. As long as I don't reboot, I can keep root. Tried various mount codes but can't get the system to mount rw. Does anyone have any knowledge to help get this thing perm rooted? I know with some lg devices you can zero out the laf partition to enable fastboot, obviously we don't have a laf partition, but just wondering if anyone has any ideas for the next step.

    The next step would be to disable write protection, unfortunately, I think, This will be impossible without fastboot.

    I have another dev working on patching the recovery and possibly the boot image. (to keep the recovery from reverting back to stock) Once he patches the recovery if all goes well we will be able to flash zips through the modified stock recovery.

    I don't wanna get anyone's hopes up. This may end up resulting in me bricking mine. Lol. It has a cracked screen anyways tho... So I'm willing to take one for the team so to speak.

    Still working on it. Basically I'm just waiting for him to upload the modded images. Then I will test.

    If everything goes smoothly, how complicated will it be to use it. I have never really used flash before when I have rooted a device. I probably should have. I understand the basics of it but never came into a situation that I needed to.

    If all goes well you will be able to flash the images with flashify app or dd commands. It will not be super easy to use though. Basically, he is going to change the public keyset in the recovery with a different set. Then any zip signed with his keyset should flash. (Meaning you'll have to sign every zip you want to flash.) I am going to test it with a simple SuperSU zip and If It doesn't brick and I gain perm root, then that's definitely a start. I just can't wait to try it. Hopefully something good will come out of it tho.

    How is he going to change the public keyset in recovery without flashing a new modified recovery.img?
