  • Root Cricket Wireless ZTE Sonata 4G

    Rooting allows you to gain access to areas which are locked down to you by default like system files. Having access to these areas can allow you to use tethering apps, do deep backups of your apps / application data, and more.

    From Wikipedia

    Android rooting is the process of allowing users of smartphones, tablets, and other devices running the Android mobile operating system to attain privileged control (known as "root access") within Android's sub-system.

    Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices, resulting in the ability to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized apps that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user. On Android, rooting can also facilitate the complete removal and replacement of the device's operating system, usually with a more recent release of its current operating system.

    As Android derives from the Linux kernel, rooting an Android device gives similar access administrative permissions as on Linux or any other Unix-like operating system such as FreeBSD or OS X.

    Root access is sometimes compared to jailbreaking devices running the Apple iOS operating system. However, these are different concepts. Jailbreaking describes the bypass of several types of Apple prohibitions for the end user: modifying the operating system (enforced by a "locked bootloader"), installing non-officially approved apps via sideloading, and granting the user elevated administration-level privileges. Only a minority of Android devices lock their bootloaders—and many vendors such as HTC, Sony, Asus and Google explicitly provide the ability to unlock devices, and even replace the operating system entirely.[1][2][3] Similarly, the ability to sideload apps is typically permissible on Android devices without root permissions. Thus, it is primarily the third aspect of iOS jailbreaking relating to giving users superuser administrative privileges that most directly correlates to Android rooting.
    Kingo was released a while ago. At first there were concerns about privacy as this was developed by a previously unknown group of developers. Those concerns were addressed and the software lives on.

      I was just able to get Kingo Root to work on my Cricket ZTE Sonata. At first, when I plugged my phone in to the computer, Kingo didn't see it. This was under the "Charge Only" option for USB connection, which my phone defaulted to.

      After I selected the "Install Driver" option, it took less than 30 seconds for Kingo to see it and begin the root process.

      I haven't played with it much, but my phone is now successfully rooted.
