    I traded in my Savvy for the Majesty need root and I have looked at all the forums on the rooting of these two new phones. It seems it will take more time for us to be able to root these phones.  Based on the research of others trying to root theirs and not being 100% successful I have not made any attempts. I hope others join in and show that they also wish to root their ZTE Majesty.

    The Majesty seems like a pretty nice phone so far. My wife and I both have one, well worth the price paid.  I have tried Poot, as well as about 4 other ways and have been unsuccessful as well. DroidHost recommended this phone so I am hoping that means he or someone here on the site will come up with a nice root and rom option soon.

    Try Cydia's impactor method. It worked on the Avail 2.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I researched Cydia's Impactor method and ran the two different scans for the two vulnerabilities; on the Majesty 8219321 has been patched but the 9695860 is vulnerable. I am currently backing up my phone content and going to see if Cydia's Impactor will work.

    This method will root the Majesty until you reboot or turn off your phone.
    (Update) The phone will lose root running some apps even if the app does not require root.

    This successfully rooted the Samsung Centura and still rooted after reboot.

    Still have not got the Majesty root to stick, the Centura is still rooted and working as expected. Does any one have any suggestions to solve the unrooting issue of the Majesty? I have tried Voodoo OTA Root Keeper, and Root Keep Survival.

    Those two methods exploit a hole in the security system, which may be why it's temporary. Do the temp root again and pull boot/recovery for us so I can take a closer look at what's going on.

    I've never heard of a locked ZTE so that helps ;). Even if they did, it'd likely be a simple fast boot unlock.

    Is there a particular method I need to use to pull the boot and recovery images from the device? I am not exactly sure how to just yet.

    Still researching and looking for a good guide for this

    This Majesty is a Straight Talk phone. I can give you any specs or details on this device you need just let me know.
    as far as pulling recovery and boot images. still have not had much luck.

    While rooted:
    give a readout of "adb shell cat /proc/partitions"

    Look for partitions around 8-12MB in size.

    For each 8-12MB partition = #
    Do "adb shell did if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p# of=/sdcard/#.blk" (make sure the # matches the partition you want to copy)

    Copy these to a computer then post them in dropbox (or similar)

    Did you grant it super user permission on the phone after you put in the "su" command?
    You need to have a "#". Instead of "$".

    I agree with you two; when I was executing the commands in the terminal on the phone minus the adb shell part

    su did not return root@ # it stayed normal and my apps did not pop up with super user permissions granted. I was so tired I payed that part no mind and went to bed.

    Arrgh! this dang phone is pissing me off!

    Yea temp root will go away when running some apps that require root; the root also goes away on other non root apps.

    Temp rooting is no where near 100% successful using Impactor if I get  error mount: Read-only file system I have to disconnect USB cable and reboot phone. The same for the error _asset(worked).

    Odd: been trying for hours to temp root I would only get a partial root no apps would request superuser access like they are supposed to. Odd thing is the only solution was to remove Main 32GB SDcard then boot phone and re temp root it.
    I assume some app that was moved to SDcard was causing it that was installed in the last two days.

    As soon as I insert Main 32GB SDcard and it is mounted temp root is gone yet again.
    I will use the stock 4GB SDcard that came with the phone OK that worked Temp rooted once again.

    Finally some success the dump of the two blocks 8,16 done.

    adb server is out of date.  killing...
