If the root process went well and successfully, the app will display that your ZTE Zmax 2 is rooted. If the device is not rooted, the Root Checker app will display a corresponding message.

• To check if your ZTE Zmax 2 device is rooted or not, look for apps which manage and control Superuser root access in your app drawer. Most commonly Superuser or SuperSU apps are found on rooted devices. If you do not see any app that controls root access, then you, probably, are not rooted.

Open the app and enter “su” (only the word) in the dialog box and tap on return. If you get a pop-up message from a root manager app asking for permission to run the terminal app as a root, then your device is rooted. Otherwise, if your login prompt is #, it means that your ZTE Zmax 2 is rooted. If the login prompt is $, your smartphone is not rooted.
