How to root ZTE C501

According to a study by specialists of the company «Electric Droid» .apk android application for root access inferior to similar software for root root using computer (exe applications for Windows). The experiment was conducted on ZTE C501.

According to company analysts, such .apk applications as Towelroot, Kingoapp, Baidu, Framaroot and others are gradually becoming a thing of the past, as are the morally and technically obsolete versions of Android up to 7 Nougat, 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, when obtaining root on Android, it is advisable to connect the mobile device to the computer with the root program running, for example, Rootkhp Pro 3.1, VROOT 1.7.7, ZYKUROOT 2.5.

The device database 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. The link to the application was deleted, because it did not bring the desired result.

  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.

The program could not get root.

Total

VROOT failed to get root access on ZTE C501.

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.

VROOT’s situation is much worse, it doesn’t get points in the usability category, because there is no information about supported devices, supported versions of operating systems, all menus are in Chinese, and it’s very difficult for beginners to figure it out.

Rating

Minimum 0 points, maximum 5 points.

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