    there is a little detail to mention, the used program to flash twrp costs 50$ so that may be a problem for some
    Yea annual sub is 50$ that's why i didn't create a topic

    can you give a picture of the whole phone with twrp? You know, just to prove that it really works, because $50 is a lot

    After a long journey when everyone is on nougat or Oreo by now; as well as messis contribution in effort to root. I think it's safe to say that he wouldn't b.s. us.
    He is your twrp man.

    so i got bored.
    i also have absolutely no clue on how to root any android phone.
    i searched for our processor (MSM8952)
    found another thread with a phone that had the same processor, locked bootloader (i think) and no fastboot.
    somebody modified someone elses work to make it work for their own device (CAT S60)

    prog_emmc_firehose_8952_ddr.mbn
    (i know messi was looking for this file)

    seemed pretty straight forward.
    put it in diag mode
    open QFIL
    load up .mbn and 2 xml files
    download
    and done.

    google
    MSM8952
    or
    CAT S60 root
    or
    prog_emmc_firehose_8952_ddr.mbn

    hopefully there is someone out here that knows what needs to be done in order for it to work.
    or
    tell me
    "this isn't how it works, stupid!"

    If you are talking about the Uni-Android Tool, 14.01 added support for ZTE devices.
    I don't know if the method works, but I was looking around and trying to see if I was willing to risk $50 for the program.

    If you are still wanting to try.
    Well make sure you sandboxie or VM the ramsomeware & mining included. Also pray that your ZTE will just reset itself after things fail & not trigger any eFuses. Make sure you pay with a method you can get ur $50 back once reported as fraud. And record everything to prove things. You do see that only lurkers with only one post or a few post wanderers comment possessively on this fake Method.

    Hi everyone,
    I have been pointed here by a @LV426 as a challenge ,
    My Challenge, find a method to exploit this device
    for root priv. escalation, as such I'll be hanging around to read the hundred pages or more of what has been tried and didn't work .
    I'll need to get to know some of you fine folks as I personally dont have hands on the device, and I'll need some willing testers soon as I get an Idea how to proceed .
    There's no guarantee that I can do any better than the great guys here who have tried and fallen short.
    But I'm going to try, and I have had success on other devices where NO ONE else managed it. So maybe we'll crack this too.

    If anyone knowledgeable about this thread would like to chime in and bring me up to date , kinda sum up everything so I don't have to read 100 + pages to catch up it would be very helpful.

    Thanks,
    Astr4y4L

    Will be more specific once I get permission to repost. But that links post even has the program created so far.

    But basically the biggest road block will be dealing with the bootloader.
