I wanted to know about framaroot for my ZTE Maven z812. Can I use this or another simple rooter?

I tried, but it doesn't work correctly. I'm using the latest (5.1) version. Both the "Root Device (All Methods)" and "Root Device (SmartRoot)" buttons claim to root the phone, but any rootchecker will tell you otherwise, and if you try the "UnRoot Device" button on SRS Root it verifies that it is not rooted. Here's my complete output.

Framaroot doesn't work either. Others may but I've got my doubts due to the phone having Android 5.1. I think they may have to find a new exploit to get it rooted but I'm of the impression that all the hardware is suitable.
Can you by chance list the root methods you've tried already?
I can't promise this one will work, I found it on XDA.
1. Download Super-Root.apk for ZTE Maven from this link : http://root.ngemobi.com/android-root-master.html
2. Connect your device to your PC using the USB cable. (Skip this, and 2 and 3 if you downloaded using your phone)
3. Copy the Super-Root.apk over to the root of your SD card.
4. Once it’s been copied, disconnect your device from your PC.
5. Head to Menu>>Settings>>Security on your device and enable the Unknown sources option.
6. Open the File Manager app on your device and install the app you copied earlier to your device.
7. Once the app’s been installed, launch it from your App Drawer.
8. Select Install SuperSU from the first dropdown menu.
9. Select exploit, tap on it in the app.
10. The app should begin rooting your device, shouldn’t take too long to finish.
11. Reboot your device once it’s been rooted.
12. You’re all done! Excellent! You’ve successfully rooted your Android device using the Super-Root.apk app and you should now be able to see the SuperSU app in your App Drawer!

Just to make sure, you have USB Debugging enabled, right?

No problem, I hope it helps you all out. I currently don't work much on the Mavern, as the Asus ZenFone 2E and LG Volt are my primaries, so I haven't seen any recoveries for the Mavern yet, but I'm keeping my eye open on TWRP to release a recovery.Thanks for posting this. I just ordered this phone. Should get it in a couple of days. Been searching for a way to root it. Will be trying this & SRS Root. Hopefully one of these methods will work.
Have you seen a custom recovery that will work for this device? Would like to be able to make a nandroid of the stock ROM.
Received the ZTE Maven today. Just to clarify it's the AT&T GoPhone version of the ZTE Z812 (Build# Z812V1.0.0B15), Android version 5.1. Tried three methods to root and all failed.
First try: SRSRoot
Used the All Methods option. The application indicated "Rooting Complete" but after restarting the device, found it was not rooted. Installed the SuperSU apk but it said the binaries are not installed and could not be installed.
Second try: Super-root root-master.apk suggested by cotylee1991
Installed apk on device. Ran the app. Took several minutes to run the attempt but finally said it failed.
Third try: Super-root PC Root application
Installed the program on my computer, connected the device and attempted to root. Again, several minutes later program states rooting failed.
Not going to try any other methods at this point. I'll wait until I see postings of actual successful methods and a custom recovery. Hope they show up soon.
