I have here, two packages.

The twrp one is meant for those who have already flashed twrp, the other is for first time root via EDL.

Both flash System RW, updated TWRP and magisk.

TWRP package will not wipe Data, You will loose no data

NOTE - You may have to mount the system RW.
NOTE - The above will be fixed via a future custom rom.

Without further ado, here are the instructions.

Initial Root Instructions

Prep: You must have a Pin screen lock set on your device to prevent data loss.

On your phone go to
Settings>Security>Screen Lock>PIN
and set a pin.

USB Debugging and OEM Unlocking have to be enabled to make this work.

On Your phone go to
Setting>About phone
Then tap on build number 10 time to unlock Developer Settings
Now go to
Settings>Developer Options
Then toggle usb debugging and oem unlocking.

1. Download this package B20 Via QFIL
2. Unzip the file to your desktop.
3. Right click on RunasAdmin_TestSignON.bat and run as administrator.
4. Let your machine reboot.
5. Run Run This.bat
6. Install everything it tells you to install.
NOTE Select WWAN-DHCP when asked
7. RTFM and flash (All the files your need for qfil are in the B20 Folder!!!!)
8. Profit

Then
9.Press and hold Vol+ and Power
10.Once the ZTE screen shows, let go of power while continuing to hold vol+

This will get you into twrp

11.Plug you phone into your computer and from your adb directory, run these commands.

12.adb shell
13.setenforce 0
14.exit

Now on your phone, in twrp
15.Swipe to allow midification
16.Tap Backup
17.check data
18.tap select storage
19.Select microsdcard
20.tap ok
21.Swipe to backup
22.Tap home
23.Tap wipe
24.Tap Format Data
25.Enter yes and tap the blue checkmark
26.Tap home
27.Tap Power off

28.Turn your phone on.

For those who have TWRP already on their device, follow these instructions.

1. Download this package. B20 via TWRP
2. Extract it to your desktop
3. Run "Flash full B25.bat"
4. Profit

so if our system is still ro, all we have to do is mount rw every time? I was hoping that we would only need to mount it like one time, because im basically doing the same thing I was doing before.

Appreciate the update, same problem as before though RO /system and a mount -o rw,remount /system command results in the phone freezing and then restarting.
