The SuperSU application is normally the app installed on an Android device for root access. That same app works as a supervisor to check out the root access when its required. Apps on the Android operating system cannot have the root access 100% of the time.
They first must prompt you that they want that root access and you then confirm or den that request. KingUser replaces the SuperSU when you root with the KingRoot tool so when you see the KingUser there in your list of apps, you’ll know what it does.
The Files You Need
- Download the KingRoot tool from the official home at XDA Developers here.
- You do not need any other files to complete this guide. The APK file does, however, give your device three new apps and only one of those (KingRoot) is the one you use for rooting. The KingUser is the app you want to open if you ever want to unroot the device and the KingMaster is the app you need if you want to increases the device’s performance.
- You can check that your device is one of the ZTE devices supported from its page.
Rooting the ZTE Q505T
- Download the KingRoot app to the desktop of your computer.
- Enable the Unknown Sources option for your ZTE Q505T smartphone. You can find that by navigating to the Menu > Settings > Security > Unknown Sources.
- Connect the Q505T smartphone to the computer with the USb cable.
- Transfer that app over to your devices internal storage SD card and then unplug the ZTA smartphone from the computer.
- Install the APK file on your device by following the guide in the link to get that done. Those choosing to use the file manager can download the best file manager for Android from here.
- Tap and open the KingRoot app once you finally have it available from your devices app drawer.
- Tap the Get Root button you will see on the first page inside the application.
- Wait as your device gets root access granted by the universal one-click rooting tool.
- Soon you will see a success message on your devices display. Once you do see that message, you need to exit the KingRoot app and then reboot the device.
- You can choose to install the root checker application from the Google Play Store.
- Now that you have verified the root access on your device using the root checker application, you can open the Google Play Store app on your device and start installing the root-requiring apps.
Now that SuperSU is installed you can go about installing just about all of the root applications out there that there are to install. Just note that you can’t use services like Android Pay and Netflix when you get root access with SuperSU because of the Google SafetNet feature that protects these services from rooted devices. If you need to use Android Pay, then you should try getting root access with the newer Magisk root application instead.

I’m new here and I really need help in fixing by hard bricked ZTE Q505T (4g) device. I just got this phone like last month and I successfully rooted it, and then i edited something in the build.prop which began my problem. Whenever i boot the phone, logo shows but then the screen starts flashing white and black and vibrates on key press. At then I could boot into my recovery, which I figured out that my device was soft bricked. Allelujah!!! at then, i boot into recovery, downloaded my stock rom which was in a .zip format, copied it to my SD card, tried to “install update from SD card” option (I don’t have a custom recovery since my device was too rare), got “E: signature validation error, installation aborted” error, I tried using the “apply update from ADB” option as well and the adb sideload program on my PC, got same error on my phone. Since my device was a qualcomm device, I googled “How to unbrick a qualcomm device” and came across a site where it said (among its steps to follow) to use miniTool partition to format my device’s partition, and I did, and that began the second phase of my problem , cos I later got to realize i just deleted my recovery image as well and the other step to follow to restore it with QFIL was to have my firmware image not a .zip type and that was the only one I could online, a firmware.zip that Just contained the boot.img, META.INF folder and system folder, no recovery.img
and the other stuffs needed. I tried my luck if I could use the extracted .zip for flashing back to my stock rom, but got a Sahara Failed/Error report. Right now I’m stuck don’t know what to do, except if someone here could help me to get a backup firmware image with all its needed files for my phone let me try again. My device has an inbuilt battery but thank goodness it is a qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 driver. Right now the device can’t boot up or show any logo or even charge or show the LED, but my system recognizes it as a qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 whenever i plug it in, that gave me alot of hope, I know i messed big time, Please just help me !!!!!

Most smartphones have a flashing tool that you can install on a computer and then flash the firmware files from there.
I don’t know official firmware sources for ZTE, and I don’t know what flashing tool ZTE has either.
To avoid following a guide from a non-reputable website, I recommend getting in touch with ZTE first and asking them to direct you.
AndroidMTK.com is a website that is knowledgeable with flashing tools if you can’t get in contact with ZTE. He is an Indian man and not necessarily great at writing, but his files are legit.
