Rooting the phone (Z981) from source code?

Okay! I found the source code for ZTE ZMAX PRO (Z981) phone. Could this help in rooting the phone?

Download link:

Someone has already made the TWRP recovery for the phone, but the phone’s bootloader is still locked yet.

Using the sources:


Maybe you need to ask the official to unlock the bootloader ,MI6 also need to ask the official to unlock。
but idon’'t kown that whether the ZTE is like xiaomi.

I am gonna talk to ZTE, and see what they can do.
I myself tried a lot to unlock the bootloader, but I got failed.
