Are you wishing your Zen Ultrafone 701HD device had on-screen navigation buttons? You can get that look by installing the SoftKeyZ application from the Google Play Store after you root the device.

Most devices do not come with on-screen navigation buttons still to this day, and there’s no way you could ever have an app of this nature working without root access on your device. The SoftkeyZ application is one of the bets apps for rooted Ultrafone users and can be installed immediately after completing this guide.

Files You Need

  1. Download the rooting exploit you need from this page.
  2. Download the universal ADB Drivers from this page.

Rooting the Zen Ultrafone 701HD

  1. Download the rooting exploit directly on the computer.
  2. Since you are using a Windows PC, it will automatically appear in the Downloads folder by default unless you have changed the default location of your Downloads.
  3. Open the Downloads folder and move the rooting exploit over to the desktop (click and drag the file).
  4. Right-click the mouse over the files and select the “extract here” option from the Windows menu.
  5. Make sure you have the USB Debugging Mode enabled on your device before continuing. You can find that out by pointing to the Menu > Settings > Developer Options > USB Debugging Mode.
  6. Connect the Zen Ultrafone 701HD to the computer using the USB cable.
  7. Double-click the Run.bat file that is on your desktop after you extracted the rooting exploit file.
  8. That Run.bat file will now root your device.
  9. Once the rooting is complete, reboot your device and you are ready to start installing the root-requiring apps from the Google Play Store.

The first app many people prefer installing is the root checker application. The root checker application is useful to check if your device is rooted or unrooted.
