The ZTE Blade A3 has been out for a little over a year now, but it’s never too late to root. Before I get into the actual rooting, I want to give you a warning up front. As a warning some, if not all, of these rooting options will void your warranty. If you have any concerns about rooting, I’ll address them here and set your mind at ease.
This rooting guide uses the KingRoot utility to achieve root. Kingroot is one of many rooting services that take a lot of work out of the process for the ease of the user. In fact, Kingroot doesn’t need a PC to root your phone, all you need is the APK. Download and installation should only take you five minutes or less, so this is a heavily recommended option.
