I can't root my zte zinger! It is so locked down! And I can't even get temp-root on my zte zinger. Fix as soon as possible!
You're going to have to contact ZTE since they're the ones
who locked the bootloader like they did with the Zmax.
Go to the XDA board and see if they have a way to root it.
A carrier will never help you root your phone.
XDA is no help, they have ways to try to get temp-root but no perm-root yet. Other websites are no help, they are survey lock or just don't work. Please help.
T-Mobile has actually told us in the past not to help people with rooting. It voids warranty and can potentially cause problems that can't be supported by the carrier.
If you're going to want to do that, you're going to have to ask other places -- xda is the suggestion of choice. Honestly, if they don't have a way (yet?), there's probably no other resource that has a way.
