Not only root-access on your ZTE Blade L2 helps you install root-requiring apps, but it does help you create Nandroid backups and flash custom ROMs, provided a custom recovery is available. Rooting is fun and it allows you to perform a number of tasks on your device. Some of these tasks include flashing a custom ROM to change the appearance of the phone completely, flash a custom kernel to overclock the phone, and so on.

If you’re ready to give rooting a shot, here’s how:

Files You Need

1. Download Framaroot from XDA and copy it over to the SD card storage on your phone.

Rooting the ZTE Blade L2

1. The first thing is to enable the installation of third-party apps on your device. To do so, head to Menu->Settings->Security on your device and tick-mark the box that says Unknown sources. It should then let you install apps from outside the Google Play store.

2. Launch File Manager and find the Framaroot APK you copied earlier. Tap on it and it will start to install. Let it fully install on your phone.

3. When the app is installed, open your phone’s main menu and tap on the app icon and it’ll launch.

4. Select Install SuperSU from the dropdown menu in the app.

5. You should see three root exploits right below the dropdown menu. The one that works for this device is Barahir, so tap on it.

6. Let the app perform its magic and root your device.

7. When the app says success, reboot your device.

8. When your phone turns on, open app drawer and look for the SuperSU app. If it’s there, you’re rooted.

9. You are all done.

Finally, your ZTE Blade L2 is now rooted and can be installed with many of those root-requiring apps available in and out of the Google Play store. Enjoy!
