Good Luck!

If you use the method described in the thread DON'T flash the SuperSu zip mentioned until you delete Kingoroot s 'superuser'.

I did this and bricked my phone for about 10 days until I could manage to keep the system running long enough to get rid of all the KingCrap from it.

Better yet NEVER USE KINGOROOT FOR ANYTHING EXCEPT AS A LAST RESORT

I've spent many hours fixing the damage it can do to a system.

Hi, Steven

As a new forum user, what do you recommend to use to root my phone instead? I have just done this and am having a terrible time with it! I can't move any of the bloatware or anything yet.

Thanks in advance,

Dr Cheryl

Did you replace the Kinguser (it might be called something a bit different like Superuser) with SuperSu or another SU? That is the first step to get out of the Kingroot trap.

Welcome Dr Cheryl

If you've rooted your n817 using this method and managed to replace KU congratulations. This one is not an easy root. Id be xurious what you're using to remove bloatware. 3c works good, Titanium backup, theres a lot

You can pm me iff you need help.

15 attempts. ALL resulted in "root failed".
If you do not know what you are talking about, try NOT posting suggestions because they all lead to the exact same non-functional outcome.

Tried literally everything. All steps posted throughout the internet. NONE of them actually function as advertised.

I am sick of the lies. It is clear that no one on this site actually knows what they are talking about.
The "apps" suggested on this site, along with dr.fone, and even the debloater apps are ALL non-functional.

What is it going to take to stop the lies????

Face it. The N817 can not be rooted nor cleaned up. It is the sole intention of ZTE.
When you call ZTE and navigate past their red tape, you find out the truth.
The device will never allow ANY user access over the device.
STOP the lies and remove this entire topic already.

Well, you asked for it. NONE of these suggestions, and NONE of the other suggestions this site has offered works in any way what so ever.
"root failed" is the only outcome for everything this site has claimed.
The N817 can NOT be rooted, nor debloated. ALL N817's are blocked. Meaning that there is no possible way to clean up nor root them. ZTE will tell everyone the same if they bother to investigate the claims made by users of this site.

I have tried everything this site has stated numerous times. The only result possible is "root failed" or device not recognized.

Actually, I just obtained ROOT with 360Root that chinese app on android. Then I flashed TWRP, then SuperSU, boom fully rooted

Well, some people, like the poster above can't seem to do any critical thinking for themselves. If it doesn't go 'just like the video' heaven forbid they would have to synthesize their own methods.

Hey guys I've tried everything and it's just not happening I have Qlink ZTE 818 with a 7.1.1 OS and it's just not working. I guess I'm not smart enough to do this.

360root works, but you will lose root if you restart/reboot your system.
