Before rooting your ZTE Android device with the help of a rooting tool, here are a few prerequisites that need to be taken care of:
a) It is crucial to take the backup of everything on your device before rooting it, as the tool doesn't provide the automatic backup feature. Here is a guide telling you how to backup ZTE phones.
b) Your device should be at least 60% charged before the backup as the process could drain it significantly.
KingoRoot is a popular rooting app that enables you to root all models of ZTE devices from Android OS 1.0 to 7.0. It has both PC and App version. Here, we will set the App version as example.
