We here at TAS (now it is have compiled what we consider to be the best ZTE Merit root guides available. Some of these Android rooting guides come directly from us while others come from sites that we believe make the cut for a good quality guide to getting your android ZTE Merit rooted. Rooting is a means to grant you, the end user, increased access or permissions to your device. Not much different than administrator access in windows operating system, root access allows you to perform functions that your device is set up not to allow you to do. You can run more apps like titanium backup. You may have noticed some apps on the Google play store require root access. Install custom ROMs or kernels in order to take customizing your phone to next level and add some extra features!

Remember there is always a risk that you can brick your device or render it useable. As such, Root at your own risk. Neither myself, nor are responsible should anything happen to your device.
