How do we go about joining their discord?
I haven't been on the forums in a long time so I'm honestly bummed that no progress was made, and being the realist I am there's no why I'm acknowledging rumors of any breakthroughs with legitimate consideration because who wouldn't want the recognition of cracking the uncrackable despite the toxic atmosphere, it's easier to keep your mouth shut if you ain't got nothin, plus you can't miss what you never had so there's no point in complaining. I'm only reminded of why I wanted root on this phone when YouTube ads start to bug me, unfortunately the Xposed framework is running out working modules to block them on my rooted devices so where all headed towards more forced consumption, loss of real personalization down to a software's code and locked hardware, like I said, bummed.
Dude I know... Best phone I've ever owned, all things considered.
Is it possible things may turn soon..??
Is this the same ZTE were are talking about???
Yes. I'm trippin' too
Same ZTE, different phone. Root has been available for the Axon 7 for a while now.
I know this, but for them to release all their source files like that is kind of unprecedented since they usually only reluctantly release the kernel (which usually has errors). It just seems promising for Development vs previous interactions (hence @Unforgiven 's surprise as well, I'm thinking). Heck.. maybe ZTE just needs some help to get some stuff ironed out?
I'm welcoming the change, it's much needed for everyone's benefit.
Has anyone tried this rooting method so far?
Correct me if I'm wrong but i believe your statement of facts is true but backwards
Private key= Signing key that encrypts at factory, usually contained in the Base rom ( NOT ANDROID ROM ) in the Board and sometimes protected further by Q-fuses
Public key= basically the same key that is attainable by unzipping an OTA.zip
which is used to read the encrypted hash...
you'll see some files with the .crt or .rsa extension
unless I'm Having a brain-fart here.
Can anyone tell me this?
from what I see right here it looks like this device was out well before December 2016,
so if you were to have it in stock form---> Never updated.
What would the patch level/date be?
I'm wondering if it's at all susceptible to Dirtycow ...
I don't have hands on one of these devices but would like to help.
Nope. Didn't work at all.
Pay Google $10 a month, ads go away. Plus added bonus of YT music, YT RED, background operation. Worth every penny
Can Magisk Manager help someway root the phone?
Agreed! Large screen and having fingerprint sign in for all my important apps has definitely supplemented for a lack of root, don't know how I lived without it, can only imagine the advantages with super user privileges
OK...let me start off by saying hello everyone.Old galaxy prevail guy coming back for root of the z981.nowww...I'm wondering what program does zte use to install the android system to the phone.if there is a dfu mode or download mode can't use grab the stock package and incorporate the root in the zip package as it installs it as a new system it would have the root inside already.I've seen it done.done it myself .Anyone shed some light on this
Sorry I'm late BTW I've been watching from the shadows..lulz...let me know if you need anything.. Armed with adb..lol
And I need quick responses.. I'm more of a Dora the explorer finding answers...lol just ask @hroark13 ...good ole prevail days lol..hey its me wifredojr978 lol
I'm pretty sure it's ftu or from. But the pro does have musicfx an BusyBox installed as system apps which are apps that are used with root not sure why they would be tho
Root let's you install custom roms, get rid of bloat ware that could cause device slow down especially if your device has a low amount of ram like the zmax pro, and it let's you use apps that need root on the play store, or apps like a modded play store.
I moved on to the LEECO LE S3 X626 as the zmax pro has no root at all a low amount of ram, and a processor that overheats so easily. My ZMAX PRO will be collecting dust for a bit.
Because ZTE needed it to do anti-Root testing. Yes, they were busted with a Root switch. Really. They also intentionally made ZTE OS's unstable with Root functions to deter ppl from trying to Root at all. Str8 up.
You have to get adb to recognize the device first. ZTE Flash in download mode, adb doesn't see the device.
How do you enter download mode? I tried but couldn't.
i need a copy of the stock rom for zmax pro
