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

  1. Download the KingRoot tool from the official home at XDA Developers here.
  2. 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.
  3. You can check that your device is one of the ZTE devices supported from its page.

Rooting the ZTE Q505T

  1. Download the KingRoot app to the desktop of your computer.
  2. Enable the Unknown Sources option for your ZTE Q505T smartphone. You can find that by navigating to the Menu > Settings > Security > Unknown Sources.
  3. Connect the Q505T smartphone to the computer with the USb cable.
  4. Transfer that app over to your devices internal storage SD card and then unplug the ZTA smartphone from the computer.
  5. 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.
  6. Tap and open the KingRoot app once you finally have it available from your devices app drawer.
  7. Tap the Get Root button you will see on the first page inside the application.
  8. Wait as your device gets root access granted by the universal one-click rooting tool.
  9. 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.
  10. You can choose to install the root checker application from the Google Play Store.
  11. 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.
