How to root ZTE Switch X2

According to a study by specialists of the company «BootRoot Sky» .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 Switch X2.

As the chief analyst of the company Saniyah Powell, 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 – 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.

Using Vroot 1.7.7

How to root ZTE Switch X2

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 rebooting, the superuser application should automatically install, again in Chinese.

Expert Review:

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

The program did not complete the task, giving errors.

How to check if root appeared

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 Switch X2.

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
