LOL! I guess
It looks like nothing but a screen and a bezel around it.

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.

Kool hope it goes well. I was wanting to know what would you be looking for and how do I view/edit this file; in Notepad ++ a nightmare with all the garbage in the editor, with UEStudio or Ultra Edit the file looks better in the viewer but still mostly a garbled mess of codes. the same way some binary files look.

Are you using a custom decompiler or something I can d/l and use?

I am interested in trying to learn how to do this. Before I built this rig I had VMWare with Unbuntu on on it to compile Android OS source and create a custom build for my Netbook.

Going to install VMWare again since this is a fresh Windows install and add Linux Mint v15.1 on it.

What would I need to know to decompile these .blk files and be able to have a look at them?

Conveniently enough, I have my boot.img tools up on our server.

EDIT:
I also have a test CWM image :)

well the CWM was a bust apparently they locked the bootloaders on the ZTE phones also, hence why there are so many problems getting them rooted... sixxkilur tried testing the CWM for us and DroidHosed (aka HardBricked) it... we are sorry this happened, but its all in the name of development for the ZTE Majesty...

Oh man that sucks. So the battle continues...... I have not seen anyone get closer than a temporary root that fails with most apps. Overall I really like the phone but having root is very nice. Positive spin is we now know another method that does not work.

Good luck with that ZTE is all I can say. The phone I chose for my replacement came in yesterday.
For the record you can get a S4 Clone that is way better than the Majesty at the same price. The clones have good reviews; I am going to get my wife and son one when I can afford it.
