    Yeah, I tried that too but still no boot. There's not anyway I can fix it without a signed boot.img from ZTE. I just gave up and got a S5 for $150 that I could root and install roms on. It's a much better phone IMO :)

    I could give you a copy of the stock boot.img, how would you flash it, though?

    Yeah, but if it won't boot to android, how's he gonna get temp root and type that in the terminal?

    Do you still have the n9518? Would you be willing to do some testing since it is bricked? Not right away, but in the near future.

    I've got a different phone as my daily. My warp is a glorified mini tablet at this point. Let me know if you have something to try.

    Well I have a kernel cooked up, but I don't want to brick anyones phone. We need twrp. I think every partition besides userdata and cache is encrypted so they will need to be formated before flashing so.... yeah its do or die.

    So we can get temp root. Has anyone been able to pull recovery and bootloader and modify them? Possibly unlock the bootloader and reflash after temp rooting again?

    We have source code so if someone could compile kernel( which should be compiled as a debug or eng build or selinux permissive and aboot with the right boot configs flags marked, and find a way to format kernel and boot. Then just dd them and twrp( when messi2050 can compile it) Then we're all set.

    I have a update.zip that is rooted and debloated and deodexed /system. Also has a permissive kernel, but there is no way to flash it at the moment.

    Does flashify with temp root work? Or possibly using adb to install the update.zip? I'm assuming the latter will get blocked by the system checking the file first..

    Flashify should work, adb fails.

    Damn, have had this phone since Oct 2015. Can't believe there is not a root yet. That temp root just soft bricks the phone..

    Has anyone tested that? About a week ago I installed the update...something about a google patch. Anyways, I haven't attempted to gain temp root since... So I was just wondering if anyone has tried.

    Which update? I'm on b12, and kingo takes a few tries and takes a lot longer to do. I did happen to pull the usb when it was about 88-90% and caught a ton of the scripts that it uses to do the rooting, before it could clean up.

    On another note I've been checking out a way to trick app_process and zygote and other early boot scripts and services to get install-recovery.sh to install a permisive kernel to the recovery partition. Just dd'ing doesn't work and and the recovery partition just gets rebuilt upon reboot.

    Unfortunately #root is the least of our worries. There's the issue of the system being mounted as ro even as root, there's dmverify...We have to have a unlocked bootloader and a writable system partition. Has anyone tried psneuter or dirtycow?Or has anyone tried pushing su and superuser to data/local/tmp and mounting with Nautilus and tried moving su/super user from data to system? I'm in the field without my laptop but that's my 2¢...

    It goes into fix root mode and stays rooted until reboot but I can use apps like titanium back up.

    What method did you use? And after reboot does it wipe your phone?
