  1. I have a ZTE avid 4g model number n9120 I don’t see my specific phone on the comparability but there are other ZTE s will it work for my phone and if so which one?

  2. I tried it with my s2, but i only see GANDALF, and then i see “try another” but no other appear. What to do?

  3. It says check vulnerabilities and that my device seems not vulnerable to exploit with framaroot does that mean my device is incompatible? I’m using a lenovo idea tab A2109A

  4. Hi!
    Framaroot is not working on mine. I downloaded it and only 1 exploit shows and it’s only Aragon–which by the way doesn’t work– I tried downloading other versions of framaroot but still get the same results. My phone is Galaxy Note 2 N-7100

  5. i have installed this framaroot but it is showing only the boromoir exploit not any other thatiswhy it is not rooting

  6. I have rooted my micromax canvas a 120 Jelly bean with frama root but due to chainfire 3d installing problem i updated to kitkat 4•4•2 and now cant rooted by framaroot ,,,,,help it
