How to root Acer Liquid Z8

According to a study by specialists of the company «Red Peek» .apk android application for root access inferior to similar software for root root using computer (exe applications for Windows). The experiment was conducted on Acer Liquid Z8.

As the chief analyst of the company Lexie Whitaker, such .apk applications as Towelroot, Kingoapp, Baidu, Framaroot and others have no prospects and will gradually leave the market, following the unpopular old versions of Android up to and including 6 Marshmallow, since these applications cannot provide root access on the latest versions of the operating system Android 8 Oreo, 9 Pie and Android 10 Q.

Thus, in 2019, to obtain root rights on Android, it is effective to connect a smartphone or tablet to a computer and use root programs for Windows, such as VROOT, Rootkhp Pro 3.1, ZYKUROOT 2.5.

What is root?

Root rights are special privileges in the system, they give full access to all files in the system, it is possible to change system files, transfer applications to a memory card, modify firmware, delete preinstalled applications, including system ones, overclock processor frequencies and other features.

How to root Acer Liquid Z8

A database with supported mobile devices was not found, and the program does not position itself as a universal root tool, so we decided to try it blindly.

  1. Download Vroot 1.7.7. We removed the link to the application because it turned out to be useless !.
  2. Perhaps you need to disable antivirus programs (it depends on your specific antivirus, this action is at your own peril and risk, there are programs that are approved by antiviruses).
  3. We press the Root button and wait until the device reboots independently. After that, you can disconnect the device from the PC and use.
  4. After rebooting, the superuser application should automatically install, again in Chinese.

Unfortunately, the VROOT application is extremely unstable. I do not recommend for use.

No result was obtained using this program.

Total

Through the VROOT program, our expert Darron Buerger could not get root access on Acer Liquid Z8.

We put a formal minus Rootkhp pro and ZYKUroot – for the lack of support for languages ​​other than English, they get 0.5 points instead of 1, but let’s just say minus is purely formal, because you don’t have to think too much to press 1 or 2 buttons in English. Lameness and information content in these programs, since there is no progress bar, but not to the detriment of the result.

In addition to the lack of results in VROOT, there are a number of serious problems, there is no information about supported devices, some antiviruses block the program, the official site is not found, all the buttons are in Chinese, and you simply cannot figure out the hieroglyphs. VROOT scores 0 points in the usability category.

Rating

Evaluation was carried out on a scale from 0 to 5.

  • VROOT – 0 points in this particular situation, since there is no result on this smartphone.
  • Rootkhp Pro 4.5 points
  • Zykuroot – 4.5 points
