    it's already been labeled in OP that this may not work, I'm hoping that I can find the same/similar spot for the terminal cmds @hroark13 found with the zmax. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm hoping they just changed the cmd

    I was able to Root the ZTE N817 from Qlink Wireless, after using abd command line on Windows 10 with the correct drivers and adb shell installed, the command executed successfully and was able to achieve persistent root on the ZTE N817 after updating the google security patch even!
    current Version:
    MODEL NUMBER: N817
    ANDROID VERSION: 4.4.4
    BASEBAND: N817B01
    KERNEL VERSION: 3.4.0-gb9ccd38-00530-gfb048cczte-kernel@Zdroid-SMT
    SW VERSION N817V1.0.0B11 (current google update)
    HW VERSION:CQ5110V2.0

    ***attempting to root your device may void your warranty, doing so is at your own risk, I nor androidforums is responsible for any damages that may arise from any posted material, proceed at your own risk.***

    using terminal or adb shell issue the following command:

    reboot disemmcwp

    then proceed to root using kingoroot (worked for me)
    I will be testing out Kingroot as well after doing a full unroot and factory reset
    I will get back to you on this and possibly some custom roms and tweaks.

    You are probably correct but unless root has been achieved on the zmax pro, there is no way to know for sure.

    Could you explain exactly how you got it working? I entered the command on my windows laptop, and tried to push an edited build.prop that had the settings changed to userdebug with no results. It still told me it's a read-only file system and it failed to push it.

    (Then again, he might not be using the Cricket Wireless Z959 version).

    Also, sorry if I'm in the wrong category for this, I didn't know at the time of posting (and editing) if this is just for rooting, or if it allows write access for things other than Kingo. I did try rooting with Kingo and it told me "ROOT FAILED; try again or contact us for further support". Not to mention it kept popping up with "CONNECT SERVER FAILED" and "RETRY" or "QUIT" options. For some reason, the window was operable behind this with no need to press retry, and pressing quit closed the program.

    Were these instructions for me? Installed all 3, android terminal failed to find su, busybox failed to open a root shell and KingRoot failed to even attempt a root, instead just had me make a request. Not sure of how your instructions help me here.

    ZTE Grand X 3 has a crippled bootloader. It's unable to be launched. Sadly, your instructions aren't valid for my case.

    Also, I contacted ZTE by email and they told me none of their phones have unlockable bootloaders, so it's apparently impossible to root any of their devices. Since I bricked my phone, I'm buying an LG Harmony.

    My phone is a a ZTE grand xmax plus z987
    It's oem boot loader option can be unlocked in developer options it's fully rooted by kingroot and supersume 7.6
    They lied to you! Also if you can still power it on or if it goes into recovery mode still it's not bricked. Just download the original software zip on a SD card insert it and update thru recovery mode .under install update with SD card option.phone should reboot with normal functions
     
    Zte z987 cricket and bcrichster like this.

    Sadly, I found out later on that my phone was only out of charge, not bricked. Although, I already have my new phone now, so there's nothing I can really do about it. The only option I saw similar to anything with OEM, was "Enable OEM unlock". it didn't activate the bootloader, and I didn't see any other options that had OEM in the name.

    Still nothing can be done to this terminal for this year 2019?
    I have a terminal with IMEI: Unknown, it does not enter Bootloader, it stays in the AT&T ball and then it enters directly into the software, the software presents certain parts that are not normal, if you try to go out turning it off normal, it stays spinning and thinking and at After a few seconds it freezes before closing, you have to remove the battery to turn it off, I have it already debugged and I activate the OEM unlock, tell me how I do it to unlock the bootloader since with ADB this message comes out:
    C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Minimal ADB and Fastboot> adb devices
    List of devices attached
    b955..xxxx unauthorized

    Of course, after reading this whole forum, I know that these terminals are a mess to unlock the bootloader that is factory closed! :(

    I can't get the Firmware Stock Compilation: Z958V1.0.0B16B Original and when trying to try to Flashear another similar one in Mode MicroSD Download, this error appears:

    E: footer is wrong
    E: Signature verification failed
    Installation aborted

    Logically it seems that it is not the correct Stock Firmware!

    * I managed to make a Dump Firmware to the whole ROM, when I was only with the IMEI: Unknown
    But when trying to Flashear the same Dump, the same error message comes out ....
    * I managed to make a backup of tyoda the security zone!
    * I can't do the QCN Backup, I don't know why? Surely for not having the ROOT, without ROOT it is impossible in this terminal.

    Reading Device Information:

    Model: Z958
    Hardware: lol
    Android Ver.: 5.1
    Android OS: Lollipop
    Platform: msm8916

    Carrier: unknown

    They can help??
