How to root ZTE Grand X Plus Z826

According to a study by specialists of the company «Tangent GoodAcademy» .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 X Plus Z826.

As the chief analyst of the company Sage Mcconnell, such .apk applications as Towelroot, Kingoapp, Baidu, Framaroot and others will be ousted from the software 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.

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:

  • List of supported Android operating system versions
  • Functionality
  • Databases of supported tablets and smartphones
  • Usability – End-User Ease of Use
  • Availability of a site with information about the program and the ability to contact developers

Each item gives up to 1 point inclusive, all together no more than 5.

Using Vroot 1.7.7

How to root ZTE Grand X Plus Z826

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.

For some reason, the program on this Android device did not work, somewhere in the basement a Chinese programmer is crying.

How to check if root appeared

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

Summing up the study

Through the VROOT program, our expert Monica Rodgers could not get root access on ZTE Grand X Plus Z826.

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.

Our program evaluation

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
