Would like to know how to root my Z981? I don't understand why I can't find any information on this?

    @mbarratta85 The bootloader on the ZMAX Pro is not unlocked. If you are in "Developer Options" and seeing the option for OEM Unlock, this is standard on all Android devices.

    Root has not been achieved on the device.

    I still don't understand why? This phone has been out for how long? I paid full price for my phone.... It's like buying a car with no keys to get inside....

    @sshasan I don't remember the thread but I said the same thing as you just did and someone posted a link to YouTube videos showing how to root it. I didn't check them out since I don't have the phone.

    Are you talking about unlocking the phone so that you're free to use on another carrier or unlocking the bootloader so that you can root it?

    This is No Root for this phone. Videos claiming such are clickbait.
