If you own this device and looking for a quick way to root it, you are on the right page as I have given a step by step tutorial to root ZTE Grand X 4 here.
By following the instructions given here, you will be able to root ZTE Grand X 4 successfully. Once you have gained root privileges in your device, you will be able to install custom recovery images, flash custom ROM firmware files, etc.
Step 1: The first task to do before rooting your Smartphone is to take a complete backup of personal data like contacts, music, pictures, etc. Although the rooting procedure given here is not a data-loss process, take a backup using the appropriate app to be on the safer side.
Step 2: Next, enable “Installation from Unknown Sources” in your Smartphone for installing the “Framaroot” app (one-click rooting application). To enable the option, follow this path: Settings -> Security -> Device Administration -> Unknown sources (just tap on it).
Step 3: Make sure that your smartphone has at least 50-60% battery backup in it before getting started with the rooting procedure. Also, make sure that you uninstall or deactivate antivirus applications on your smartphone as they tend to disrupt the rooting process.
Once you have finished all these prerequisites, you can move forward with the rooting tutorial given below.

Step 3: Now, select “Install Superuser” under “Select an action to execute after root“. Next, click on “Boromir” under “Select an exploit in list above to potentially root your device” to begin the rooting process.
Step 4: Framaroot will take a minute or two to root your device, and once the rooting process is finished, you will get the following message: Success. Superuser and SU binary installed. You have to reboot your device.

Hi, Sathishkumar. Thanks for the tips, unfortunately the root is not working for the ZTE Grand X 4.
After the second restart, it displays the following message:
“File Error: An error occurred in crypto operations.”
Doesn’t work on ZTE Z956 Android 6.0.1 Security Patch Dec 1, 2017…. I tried several times on both root options but to no avail…..

What error are you getting?
Cannot install superuser.apk and cannot read init…. Already enable unknown sources…
