    If you get temp root with Kingo

    you can use adb shell to install a backdoor

    this was found by jcase for the ZTE ZMAX a while ago

    Get root with Kingo, dont reboot
    Make sure you have adb on you computer

    adb shell
    su
    setprop persist.sys.k Z958


    now if the phone is rebooted you can still get root using adb shell

    you will not be able to do to much with this, but for those that want to play around, here it is

    just note that the system partition is write protected unless you are booted from the recovery partition
    the bootloader requires the boot.img and recovery.img to be signed, so no TWRP or CWM
    flashing the boot.img to the recovery partition does not work like it did on the ZMAX

    so you do not have any options except a boot loader unlock

    maybe with the root shell someone can find something

    IT IS NOT SEMI PERMANENT ROOT

    IT IS SEMI PERMANENT ROOT SHELL

    THERE IS A DIFFERENCE


    if you were to do a factory wipe then the root shell would be gone

    because the property persist.sys.k Z958 would be erased

    Is there any way you can post like a guide because I tried everything with the adb shell following jcase's post of this root method and I keep getting "permission denied" and when I boot it into recovery as it says in the guide it says "error: device closed" or "error: device not found"
    I would gladly appreciate it because it is annoying having to root the phone over and over again with KingoRoot PC after rebooting.
    Thanks ;)

    here are some sister phones, that you guys could team up with, to find stuff

    gift = Z936L = lever
    lol = Z958 = zmax 2
    sunny = Z818L = Allstar
    sungod = Z819L = Stratos
    xuantan = Z813 = Overture 2
    max = N9521= Boost MAX+
    sif = Z850 = Grand X 2
    warp6 = N9518 = Warp Elite

    all these phones use the same kernel source

    I actually flashed the Warp Elite recovery image to my recovery partition and it booted

    the Warp Elite has some people trying to gain root, so you can keep an eye on them

    Can I use a similar setprop persist command for the elite to keep the root shell after reboot?
