How to root ZTE Grand S

How to root ZTE Grand S

According to a study by specialists of the company «Droid Utopia» .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 Grand S.

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, due to the fact that developers of these apk applications cannot or do not want to implement support for obtaining root rights to Android 8 Oreo, 9 Pie and Android 10 Q.

Thus, in 2019, when obtaining root 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 – privileges in the system that give full access to the file system, which means that you can do everything: delete / edit system files and applications, install applications on removable media, increase or decrease the processor clock speed, install your firmware, change the boot screen devices. You can do everything to customize the device for yourself.

Program Evaluation Criteria

We conducted a small study of several programs for getting root access on Android using a computer, choosing the best programs based on reviews on w3bsit3-dns.com and XDA forums. Programs were evaluated based on:

  • Supported Android Versions
  • Functionality
  • Supported Mobile Device Base
  • Usability – End-User Ease of Use
  • The presence of the official website of the root utility

From 0 to 1 point for each point. All together up to 5 points inclusive.

Using Vroot 1.7.7

How to root ZTE Grand S

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.
  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 the automatic restart, the Chinese Superuser application will be installed.

Expert Review:

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

No result was obtained using this program.

Checking for root

If you do not mind your time, then you can download the application Root checker or similar on Google Play.

Summing up the study

VROOT failed to get root access on ZTE Grand S.

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

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
