    I tried King Root, did not work.

    Bump. I hope this phone gets more interest. I'm more of a PC power user, so I don't get the most expensive phones.

    However I really hope this phone can get root. It's a shame because I had the ZTE Warp Elite for 2 years. It still has not seen root.

    I just hope this phone doesn't turn out like that one.

    I have tried King Root, it does not work as of right now for either.

    I've heard with these newer versions of Android, one click roots are a thing of the past, not sure how true that is.

    ZTE phones in particular seem to be hard to root and few have never had root reliably. While they may be economical, they certainly aren't the best choice for customizing.

    Yeah the newer ones. The older ones I don't think so as much.

    I have a rooted ZTE Force 4G, which I still use.

    Anything before Android 6 could be rooted with one of the one-click exploits since it was an OS vulnerability. That said, since 6.x I haven't seen much need to root.

    I hear you. I'm basically wanting root for Xposed, to completely remove Google apps, and a few other things.

    I already have this with my other rooted phone but would like this on the Max XL. Since it's a better device.
