I have to point out that a true "Professional" would not be creating a product that seeks to exploit a linux/android security weakness, all to purposefully circumvent a lock that the carrier put there. The carriers/manufacturers such as Samsung and AT&T have been creating Locked Bootloaders, adding security tools such as KNOX and generally making the process of modifying a phone MUCH HARDER than it has ever been. This gets a LOT of people upset - I did a petition to AT&T Executives to unlock the bootloader on the Note 3, of course it was ignored, but I got a lot of signatures, showing that many people are not happy with being LOCKED OUT OF THEIR OWN DEVICE. Once a phone is paid for, it should be YOURS to do whatever you like with it. It's not like you can harm AT&T's network with a modified phone or something. The worst you could do is brick the device, and if that's what they worry about, they could just ask to to waive the warranty when you unlock the bootloader. This is what Asus did with the transformer Prime and Transformer Infinity tablets, and many folks were happy to sign off the warranty to get the bootloader unlocked - me included.

Do not misunderstand me - I think this is great work you are doing, and I support the Kingroot team for its work. But while you are not harming the user, the Carriers (Verizon and AT&T will feel that you are harming THEM. If they start threatening or causing issues, JUST IGNORE VERIZON AND AT&T - THE SAME WAY THEY HAVE BEEN IGNORING THE DEVELOPER COMMUNITY FOR THE LAST 2 YEARS AS WE ASKED, PLEADED, BEGGED AND PETITIONED THEM TO UNLOCK THE BOOTLOADER OF OUR DEVICES. THE ONES WE PAID FOR. THE ONLY DEVICE THAT AT&T AND VERIZON HAS A RIGHT TO LOCK DOWN IS ONE THEY GIVE AWAY FREE. THE ONE I PAID FOR IS MINE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

*RANT OVER* Sorry - I get very worked up on the subject. Please keep up you efforts. This is important work you are doing here. It is appreciated by the Android development community.

Thank you very much for your understanding and support, we will continue to fight with manufacturers and get back the things which should belong to users. We pay! We gain!

How do re-root my phone?

Hi, can you give me more information about "re-root". Do you mean you have rooted successfully and then clear root by kinguser? In this situation, you can just re-installed Kinguser, and kinguser will fix root environment for you

For the blade apex2 I tried two different fingerprints of my OS and it doesn't work, ro.build.fingerprint=ZTE/P892E10/msm8226:4.4.2/KVT49L/20140509.120111.402:user/release-keys
and ZTE/P892E10/msm8226:4.4.2/KVT49L/20140529.094820.26255:user/release-keys

Though it might be something on the hardware preventing it since I've heard of users with the first version I posted to have it rooted with this or other similar methods.

(The first fingerprint is just the one given from the update.zip found on the official ztedevice.com site for Finland->Blade Apex2)

Not working on Moto G LTE XT1045, 4.4.4.

Edit: This was just the app, v 4.0.1. I'm hesitant to try the PC version because the prospect of installing a custom recovery sounds a bit harder to undo if it has any success(installing custom recovery), and I'd like to preserve compatibility with OTAs.

Feature idea: for advanced users allow them to choose the exploit method

for example the zte zmax users would benefit from being able to choose the Ping UAF directly

By the way, the latest version of iRoot from today (15/5/2015) (PC version, NOT .apk version) rooted my Blade Apex2 phone. I was talking about in this thread. Kingroot had issues with it (probably because the phone has various sub-versions and not all Blade Apex2s are the same).

edit: the actual latest version I used is from the non-english site: http://www.mgyun.com/vroot

I would also like to request the VZW Note 3. I tried on Lollipop and it doesn't work yet. Has anyone tried it on VZW Note 3 4.4.4?

Understood.
Is there any way you guys can create a fix for someone that gets into this situation? I have a feeling there will be a few more of the Zmax users that will run into this.

If not, we will just have to send in our phones for replacement/repair.

I can not set persist.sys.k back until I have a temp root. I also noticed that the phone will not activate with the sim anymore.

I can swap my phone out, not a big deal.
Just trying ensure I know what to tell other Zmax users to NOT do. LoL
