    I recently bought a ZTE Avid Plus (Z828) from metroPCS with 5.1.1 and I am looking to root it. Is there anything available yet to help me do so?

    I know its been awhile since you posted. I have been looking for root access on the ZTE Z828 since I bought it last week.. Wish I had done some research on what Metro pcs phones were easily root-able.
    I Seen something over on XDA that someone's attempt with KingO root was not entirely unsuccessful? Not sure yet..

    Sir.. would u be so kind as to explain or link where i could find more about rooting with kingo root? I did hear someone else was not entirely unsuccessful using kingo but what was the process exactly. And was it true root?

    Root successful. No recovery. Quite simple....

    Download ADB Drivers and ADB Shell set up to PC.
    Install on PC with Admin privileges
    Download latest version Kingo Root to PC
    Connect device to PC via USB
    Turn on device.
    Enable USB debugging
    Enter Command Prompt (Admin Privileges)
    Exactly.....

    adb devices
    [enter]
    adb reboot disemmcwp
    [enter]
    Phone will reboot with extra write privileges

    Right click on Kingo Root and Run as Administrator.
    Wait bout 5 min for the magic to happen.

    Links at bottom for Drivers, Shell, and Kingo Root

    It was tricky switching to super su. But this worked fine for me after trial.
    I simply uninstalled Kingo user then installed super su and updated binary normal. Boom. I'm still holding down root. Over clocked kernel and all. All the credit to ....
