How to root ZTE Source

According to a study by specialists of the company «BootRoot Giant» .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 Source.

As the chief analyst of the company Kendra Parrish, such .apk applications as Towelroot, Kingoapp, Baidu, Framaroot and others will be forced out of the software market, as well as obsolete 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, 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.

The process took: 9 minutes.

Using Vroot 1.7.7

How to root ZTE Source

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.

Unfortunately, this program from China has failed in its duty. Apparently, the Chinese are not omnipotent 🙂

Checking for root

If you want to clutter up the device with another application, download Root Checker, it will write whether you have root.

Summing up the study

VROOT failed to get root access on ZTE Source.

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.

Our program evaluation

The assessment 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
