    Model is c6740(not c6740n) Carrier is T-Mobile (if that even matters)
    Runs on Android 5.1
    I have looked all over the internet for a solution, even the xda forum, and there seems to be no way to have this phone rooted as of now. I did find a video showcasing it being rooted, but comments say they its only temporary and really short. Do any of you know how to root this phone permanently?

    Some mobiles are carrier locked to prevent you from rooting (carriers are basically jerks) by having something called "bootloader" locked.
    It's highly possible yours falls under this category (like my brother's AT&T Galaxy Note 4).

    Have you tried any of the main rooting techniques such as towelroot, iRoot, and whatnot? Sometimes they just need a simple rooting application that nobody has looked at.

    towelroot - "This phone isn't currently supported"
    iroot - failed
    kingroot - failed
    kingoroot - failed
    framaroot - Error 6
    whatnot - can't find an apk that works

    Usually when these apps run it just crashes everything or forces a reboot. The "lookout" antivirus tries killing the process too and can't be uninstalled or disabled. There was a time where kingroot claimed it rooted the device only to immediately say it was unrooted. This stubborn thing does not want to be rooted.

    Maybe the Kyocera Hydro/Rise root procedure will work..?

    T-Mobile doesn't lock bootloader's.

    I was able to get some kind of temporary root access with kingroot. Is there any app that can make it permanent? It resets on phone reboot.
