How to Root the ZTE Warp Sequent

The ZTE Warp Sequent might feel a bit less as it comes at the price tag of $199 but this doesn’t have to do anything with its specifications. Specs of the device include Android Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, a 5MP shooter on the back and secondary camera on the front side so you can make video calls using Skype or your 3G operator. If you’re a person who likes playing freely, then you’d certainly like to root the device as it’ll open up a whole new world of root-only apps for you and it doesn’t cost a penny to gain root access. All you need to do is just follow the procedure given below and you’ll have rooted ZTE Warp Sequent in your hands.
