How To Root ZTE Racer With Universal Androot App / SuperOneClick Root

If you bargained for a ZTE Racer and now looking for a root, then there is some interesting news for you. After browsing through heaps of forum discussions and related blog comments, I came to the conclusion that ZTE Racer is rootable with Universal Androot App.

Previously we dedicated a whole post on explaining how to root your Android phone with Universal Androot App, but with ZTE Racer; we will keep it simple. So let’s cut the talk and get down to rooting your ZTE Racer Racer.

  • The first step is to connect your phone over a Wi-Fi network and launch browser.
  • In the browser, type the following URL: http://blog.23corner.com/2010/08/12/universal-androot-1-6-1-released
  • once you land on the page, navigate down to where it says “APK” along with QR Code pictures.
  • Now download this application from here and wait for the installation to complete.
  • Once the installation of Universal Androot app is complete, launch app.
  • Now follow onscreen instructions to root your ZTE Racer.

If you are unable to find the APK file on the URL given above, you can download the APK from here directly to your desktop. After download, simply connect your phone to PC, mount SD card and save the downloaded APK file to SD card root. You can then use any file manager available in the market (Linda File Manager, Astro File Manager) to install this APK.


And there you go! you now have root!

We have several reports that this root might only act as a temporary root and if that’s the case, then you’l have to repeat the above procedure every time your phone reboots. In case this method doesn’t work for you, you can try the SuperOneClick Root method posted here. Please try the SuperOneClick at your own risk as there are no reports of ZTE Racer getting root with this application as yet.
