Has anyone rooted this device yet (z978)?

Waiting/trying to root mine... no single clickers work, tried several. Adb on linux recognizes my device, but need compatible recovery & either custom (Lineage?), or reload stock rom/kernel to try root (have P853A10V1.0.0B18). Anyone know if this is possible/where to get recovery? How about using Windows? Any successful?

    nope... it seems there is plenty of tutorial available on youtube but they are all fake. No recovery neither.

    Unfortunately no, the mifavor bootloader is extremely difficult to hack. No method as of yet

    No idea where you found that but the instructions are for a Samsung phone, except for the parts where ZTE was mentioned. This won't even come close to working.

    As you know, it is risky to root Android phone. After getting ROOT permission on your phone, it may result in system instability. And then mobile phone system is likely to crash under improper uses of superuser permission. In addition, during the rooting process, viruses may invade and damage your Android device. Apart from these, after successfully rooting your phone, your smart phone will be outside the scope of free warranty. Thus, if you want to root your Android smart phone, please think carefully before you act.

    Alex, not only does your heavy winded reply not answer the question, it also does not give anyone any information they would not already know if trying to root a device. Besides that, someone alteady gave a very similar reply long ago. Type (or tap) on bro!
