    Question rooting the zte grand x z777

    Has any one been able to root this device? I have tried just about everything from framaroot, kango, bin4ry, SRS to other means and have had no luck.

    Can anybody help out? I just really hope that its not completely locked like the moto g. The sonata rooted just fine... Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Yes, I did try towelroot also. My phone came with JB 4.3 installed if that helps anyone.

    I just tried fastroot and it said that my device is now rooted but it doesn't root... perhaps a joke program. I also tried saferoot and it told me that my kernel is patched and can't be rooted. grrr!

    So, I have confirmed from 3 sources that this phone has a patched kernel. Currently rooting this device cannot be done... Which is BS because I paid for it and I own it. I should be able to do what I want with it.

    At the moment Id be happy just to have a temproot-bootstrap...

    Come on cricket, Don't hold our phones hostage!!!

    Has anyone found root for this device yet for the US? I bought this phone at the spur of the moment cause my previous phone's screen was shattered. I've looked for a week now and have chatted with a member of Oneclickroot.com and they the same BS, that it had a patched kernel and blah blah. I find it hard to believe that a ZTE device can't be rooted and I'm getting pissed off. I can't download more than 3 apps and I'm out of space. I NEED this rooted. Somebody has GOT to be able to this device. Please, please, please!!!!!
