ZTE Zmax Pro Forum

Root Working Magisk Mods

I have personally tested these on my ZTE ZMAX PRO running my twrp with installed magisk zip. You should be able to install these mods through the magisk app after flashing the magisk zip file. If you need me to test more mods, then comment down below of which mod you want me to test! I will try to install all of them if i can :)

Wait, you have a rooted Zmax Pro? How?!

Recent developments, check Messi's locked thread on how to do so, and Armand's thread that holds TWRP.

Is the cost to root still $50 for the zmax pro z981?
 
#4 jhgfrtu, Feb 6, 2018
I recommend NOT to buy it. Eventually someone will have a free method to get root

I wasnt anyways. In all my 9 years of rooting/modding/building /flashing and editing, Ive never paid for Root and I Never WiLL.
Im suprised some have paid that much for a two year old device thats worth less than $10 as if now. Amazing....

Nice addition. You can flash BusyBox 1.24.2 through TWRP
https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1929852
Other modules that work are greenify4magisk and Youtube Vanced (For some reason, YoutubeVanced would not work with Viper4Android).
It's also worth mentioning that Xposed modules work perfectly fine on ZTE. (GravityBox, LuckyPatcher, XuiMod, you name it).
Personally, I've been unable to edit the system partition using root. So if you want a custom boot animation, custom font or modify build.prop; you will need to do that through TWRP.

Sir please explain to the other average users what you mean by

I'm sure you mean to say custom boot animation. Right?

the way it's written may mislead others to think they can pay 50 bucks and have custom
as in modified bootloader.
Which Is not the case.

Thanks

Also Note that I think we can probably do all of those things you just mentioned from the command line with ADB and root access.
 
#9 Astr4y4L, Feb 6, 2018
I'm trying to get phone rooted just to get rid of all the bloatware . Is that possible or is this 50$ thing serious right now... And does the root work for the zte blade z? Or only the zmax pro

Do not pay the $50. There should be a free method or you might be able to get rooted the same way other's where rooted here without paying $1 let alone $50. Just be patient. Kinks are being explored. And methods will arise.

Even if you where to pay for the program. Most of us are to unfamiliar with the program to make good use of it. The steps are very specific.

You can do that, but only from TWRP. You cannot edit system partitions, while you are booted into the rom.
 
#12 lonelyisland369, Feb 6, 2018
I rooted it
 
#13 fidounlocks, Feb 9, 2018
It'd be nice to know how :b
 
#14 itachi_hoshigaki, Feb 9, 2018
using paid license of UAT
 
#15 fidounlocks, Feb 9, 2018
So a while ago I said that you couldn't edit the system partition unless in TWRP. Well, someone figured out how a while back.

In adb shell run : adb reboot disemmcwp
To revert : adb reboot emmcwpenab

I think that with this there should be no restrictions with magisk root!!!
 
#16 lonelyisland369, Feb 12, 2018
Someone stated in that thread that it doesn't work on the ZTE Zmax Pro.
If would be useful if someone here can confirm that.

LoL
 
#18 Astr4y4L, Feb 13, 2018
I was talking with armadrop_ yesterday about this. It works for me, but I'll check up to see if it works for him too.

@armandop_ I know you've had a little trouble with this, but maybe this app will help ya out.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.blogspot.superthomaslab.mountsystemrorw&hl=en

(To clarify try using this after adb reboot disemmcwp )

Another little update, if you add
"persist.sys.debug.multi_window=true"
to the build.prop, multi window mode is enabled. To choose the apps just press the recent apps button & there should be options on the right corner. Screenshot_20180213-184300.png Screenshot_20180213-184822.png
