The vroot actually is using 360 one also, as it install 360 inside.

Vroot site - http://www.mgyun.com/vroot



Root required apps running fine.


Boot Loader is still locked.



Bravia Engine still working.

Bravia Off - view using QuickPic | Bravia On - view using Album


Restart, shutdown few times - confirm Root still working.

It was so easy yet scary... ALL IN CHINESE, so choosing and clicking buttons to install was a blind hit and miss

Anyway, if you keep on failing after multiple attempts, not only should you check that the USB debugging mode in on, and also lock screen is disabled,

YOU SHOULD ALSO DISABLE McAFEE anti-virus app as well

Are you sure you have drivers for ZU correctly installed in your PC?
In device manager, delete the driver for ZU and reinstall just to be sure.

Does your PC make sound when u connect via USB? (that up tone double-beep when connecting and down tone when disconnecting?)

Just sucessfully rooted my ZUltra using the VRoot tool. Am running 510 fw (Indonesian C6802).

Just wanted to hare my steps:
1. Connect your phone (don't forget to enable USB Debugging)
2. Open the Vroot tool, wait until it detects the phone.
3. Click on the green button on the right bottom corner of the tool (root).
4. After sucesssfully root using the VRoot (your phone will reboot), install the SuperSU from playstore.
5. Open the SuperSU app, it will ask to update binary, click ok.
6. Then open the Vroot tool once again, click the white button (unroot) on the left of the green button, hence removing the chinese superuser app.
7. After that go to SuperSU -> Settings -> Install SuperU into /system.
8. After that reboot the phone, and the SuperSU will still be there, all apps requiring root works perfectly.

Note: if you cannot find the developer options in the settings to enable USB debugging (just like I did the first time ), go to About Phone and click on the Build Number menu 7 times. That will enable the developer mode.

Can confirm that this works perfectly on the LTE C6833

If you are rooted correctly using Vroot, the next time you open the Vroot tool while being connected to your phone, the tool will show the window I posted above. To unroot, just click on the white button (the one i put in the red circle). Just remember you should only remove the vroot after updating the SuperSU binary, otherwise you would just lose all the root.

After removing the vroot, you just need to push SuperSU to /system, after this you might find that the SuperSU app is also missing, don't worry, just reboot your phone and SuperSu will be there, already becoming the root manager.

Hope this helps.

I knew you'd get me on a bad path...
Currently downloading PC Companion and everything related and then I'm diving right in the magic world of root once again...
Anyway, when you're rooted (bootloader still locked until they find a way to unlock and relock in 5 minutes) can you update via OTA or PC Companion? Will you loose root then?


...............aaaaand DONE!
