A standard rooting procedure will install SuperSU on your device. That SuperSU app is the special app that grants your device the access to the root file system. With the new KingRoot one-click universal rooting app, things are a bit different. The developers who created this tool have also created a kingUser app and the KingUser replaces the SuperSU. Effectively they do the same job but are named differently.
The Files You Need
- Download the KingRoot app from its official thread made over at XDA Developers here. The developers of the universal one-click rooting tool during this guide are the same people who created that thread.
- That’s the only file you need to root the ZTE Blade S6 smartphone. Once you install the app on your device, you will see three new apps in your applications drawer. The two we do not mention during the guide are the KingUser and the KingMaster apps. The KingMaster increases your device’s performance and the KingUser is the one you want for unrooting the device should you ever want to go down that path.
- You are voiding the warranty of your ZTE Blade S6 smartphone by following this guide. You can, however, unroot using the app we mentioned and it will restore that warranty so you may use it again.
- You may verify your Blade S6 is one of the ZTE supported devices on the list.
