Step 1. We want to make sure that you turn on USB Debug on your phone under development settings in settings tab.
Step 2. Plug in your device nd select install ZTE drivers on your phone.
Step 3. If your pc doesnt recognize the phone click here for zte driver
(if it doesnt allow you to click on it then copy and paste it on your browser)
Step 4. Once you have all drivers install and you pc recognizes your phone go on your browser and download an app call kingo. The app can be found here
Step 5. Once you download and install kingo app open u kingo and give it a sec to recognize the phone. Once it does select root and let the pc do its thing. Once the phone is rooted it will restart and ask you for superuser permissions, at this point select grant and your phone will be rooted. Open Superuser pp and install binaries onto the phone once you do that i suggest you go onto the play store and update the superuser app.
This is it now your new zte boost max is rooted and we are just waiting on a custom recovery to arise or i will work on one and upload it here on this post for you. I do have a spare zte max phone i can work on to try everything i can on it so dont worry hopefully real soon i will have it. Now i worked mostly on Samsung phones Unlocking and flashing repairing imeis so building custom recovery is quite new for me but i promise to work hard. Thanks And enjoy And sorry for some reason the xda is not letting me post url links since im a new member so until i become n old member i cant write www in front of any links. I know its stupid lol
