    Kool, together we may all find a way to beat the security restrictions still limiting development for this device.

  4. Maybe magisk already took care of this. On the Magisk Manager this is the first screen that comes up.

    That kind of was my thought. It either tried to or did. Not sure. Come over to Discord for a live discussion.

    Sweet !!!
    How'd you get it installed?
    Did you get in on the UAT -train and flash it from custom recovery?

    and if you don't mind , What superuser app are you using?

    That's pretty good stuff, I love Xposed.
    Do you have a list of working Modules, I've noticed a lot of them are buggy or not compatible in everything above lollipop , so a list of Xposed Do's And Don'ts for this device will be Very helpfull for other Android Forums visitors

    A few modules installed , the ones showing seem to be working ok , gravity box is the only app I haven't really messed with yet.
    I used flashfire to install Xposed.

    I did use the UAT, but I didn't purchase it for the purpose of rooting this thing nor would I ever purchase a root solution. I repair phones as my second source of income and the tool has paid for itself numerous times over, obtaining root to the z981 was just an added bonus. I would never recommend paying for root.
    As far as a list of modules that do work with this device they're more do not installs than they're do's
    But I am trying out as many as possible and maybe we can start a new thread on working and non working modules for this device.
    I am using Magisk app to maintain root and unaware of I can actually use SuperSU ATM however I believe not yet.
    Very special thanks to Messi2050 for helping me with many answers to questions on how to obtain root using UAT. And of course thank you for all the work allot of you put into getting this far as it is.

    Great amount of info. Right now we are in the process on trying to get or create the firehose. We need more folks with UAT access over @ Discord. Hope you can come by & help out.

    Since yall got it rooted the easy way, anybody using the uat method just needs to pull a init file from the ramdisk so anybody using anything before b12 can use dirty c0w to root.

    Also the software being used by UAT is a modified version of qualcomm loader, but obviously they found a usable firehose which is probably a modified version of the axon7.

    I am only posting because root shouldnt cost money.

    Wheres sapphire doe! Lmao

    Edit: also to get permissive to work correctly, setenforce has to be ran during boot so write an init file or edit the pre existing init files and put a setenforce command in one of the files.

    Thats a good idea. Except one problem... No one will reply with the joining info when you request to someone to join the discord channel. Multiple people have requested to join and have yet to recieve a reply. I myself have even asked. No luck though.

    Ok so im going to warn everyone that evidentially...

    There is a discord chatroom where development is being done on this device.
    And apparently some mod here has taken those links down.. and banned people who posted them.
    be aware that i believe this violates some policy about driving traffic away from android forums.
    I believe thats whats going on.
    I dont agree with it... just because a different site is gaining in popularity . But rulz are rulz.

    So for those looking at this wondering where did everyone go...
    They are on discord and i believe there will soon be a google group..

    Everyone's welcome there but youll have to find it yourself or ask a AF MOD. AT LEAST ONE OF THEM ARE PART OF THE GROUP. ;)

    I'm not going to get in to the ins and outs of why a certain member was banned, but the post(s) were removed because they blatantly advertised a place where you could download a paid app/service for free. Something which contradicts our rules.

    If you or anyone has any issue with mod actions, the place to discuss that is here. We will endeavour to talk as candidly and openly as our own internal guidelines allow.

    This is where I'm at.

    Adding :

    android:sharedUserId="android.uid.diag" android:sharedUserLabel="@Null"

    to package1's manifest will give you access to
    /data/data/"PACKAGE1"/*** also /data/user/0/"PACKAGE1"/***

    doing the same for other packages givess access to each others data/data/....data/user/0

    example, package1 = filemanager
    package2 = terminal(s) etc

    once in you can add/remove
    change perms
    should even be able to give access to adb if it matters.

    With Emode ver: 5.1.1 and lower
    you can enable logs and pull logs from /cache/logs to /Ztelogcat_
    -And break a few things.-

    Test_Assistant also pulls and zips the logs to /sdcard
    Theres a code to enable it.
    I've seen the user log.
    Ramdump setting.
    if enabled phone will do a ramdump when the modem crashes...
    (2 times on the B08)
    (0 times on the B21)

    Have two zmax pros, the B08 would never take an update. always failed saying rooted.

    Factory reset, in settings still bad
    Factory reset in boot menu still bad
    Factory reset through emode menu still bad but reboots to FTM.

    so B08 won't update at all. it's my daily.
    Now tinkering with the B21..

    Ive taken so many screenshots with the B08 the volume down button no longer works...

    I have some questions.
    Maybe some suggestions?!
    Pretty much been digging alone, no one to colab with.

    after enabling cache/logs,
    file manager I'm using, will not browse to the location. it will get in by filling out the goto path option.
    terminal should be able to get there also.

    anyone getting class loader error with Ztesecurity.jar?

    Grab Mi-assistant ver 7 and ver 8
    don't install. just peek inside, check out the su in there...
    Ver 8 looks like it supports multi Dex.

    system updates ver: FOTA.V7.0.1.3
    dont install
    it can be installed as official update works with B08 and the B21.
    Peek inside this one if u get time.
    Ive looked into, previous version, current, and next looking for differences...

    Look inside Kingroot and mi-assistant..
