Off the top of my head I'm going to say no, you cannot get SU access without rooting your device--however I've passed to question onto a colleague of mine and hopefully will have a definitive answer for you by morning.

If you go to the you'll see that everything there is written with the presupposition that your device is indeed rooted. Is it just warranty/carrier issues that make you hesitant to root the device?

    I'm not hesitant to root, just don't know how to root without messing up my phone.

    Well I certainly understand that--but it's easier than you might think. If you want to review the steps involved, this is a good place to start: and if not, maybe one of the user groups would be of some help.

Where can I get root permission for my zte 813

Dear Mark,
This phone is a newer phone therefore there are not many rooting methods as of yet, since this is a lower end device this method will likely work but i'm not sure if its 100% compatible with android 5.0 lollipop.
1) Go to settings and in security sou should find the opton unknown sources, check this box and accept
2) Next download this file in the phones browser Poot debug apk Poot debug apk by stedman420 for Optimus when it finishes the download, pull down the notification center and click on the download complete notification, it will ask you if you wish to install this app, select install,
3) Run the app and follow what it prompts you to do it may be particular to your device
4) Install this app and open it and install the su binary
5) Install this app and check for root
6) Enjoy your root !!!

You will have to load that app from the app on your phone. But keep in mind, if your phone is not rooted, superuser will not do you much good.

What is rooting your phone mean?

rooting your phone means giving yourself root, or superuser (think...admin) access, giving you access to system files and the ability to change things that normally are marked read only

This allows you to change all kinds of things that normally you wouldn't be able to, along with install custom versions of Android.

Here is a youtube vid on "why" you should do it, check it out and maybe you will see that it may not be the thing for you.

Hope this helps.
