An Android device can be rooted easily by anyone who wants to experience more than what this OS is currently capable of. The performance of your handset will become better faster if you apply this procedure. But how to root an Android device? You’ll find the answer below.
The benefits of owning a rooted Android device include the possibility to install and use custom ROMs, play with root-only apps, experience new features, tweak your device so that it looks and operates the way you want it to, enjoy a longer-lasting battery life via special tweaks and so on.
The Framaroot method
Rooting a phone running Android may seem difficult. But it’s not if you follow some steps. If you don’t want to root your device using the standard way – that is, with a comp or laptop using -, you can opt for an app called Framaroot. Or via a method called Unlock-Root. More on these later.
However, do keep in mind that a rooting is going to void your device’s warranty.
Below you will see how to root your smartphone with the help of the Framaroot app. The first thing you should do is this: download, on your handset (or laptop/comp) the Framaroot. What comes next is this: copy paste this app from where it is to the memory of your smartphone, then flash the app from the apk file.
Then be sure to opt for Install Superuser and after that choose an exploit (you will see several showing up on the screen). After you’re done, you need to wait until this message appears:
Success …Superuser and subinary installed. You have to reboot your device
The phone is now rooted.
But, if you are greeted with this message
Failed … Try another exploit if available
you can opt for a different exploit.
To make sure the device is, indeed, rooted, you should download an app called Root checker.
The Unlock-Root method
Now here’s how you can root your Android phone with Unlock-Root. For starters, we advise you to read this: in order to successfully get the warranty back after your device is rooted, you need to either update it with official firmware, apply a downgrade to a stock ROM or reset the device’s flash counter.
- turn USB Debugging on by opening Menu, choosing Settings, opting for Applications, selecting development and then tapping USB Debugging;
- create backups;
- use a Windows-running laptop or comp;
- fully charge the battery of your phone;
- use only a device that’s running Android;
- turn off security programs installed on both your handset and the notebook (or PC).
Step by step instructions
- Back to the tutorial now: begin by downloading the Unlock-Root (the free version) on your laptop and save it afterwards, then make sure you flash the tool on the same device.
- After you’re done with the installation phase, you need to proceed to this step: run the .exe file and then download and also flash the driver of your phone on the notebook or comp.
- Once this is done, you should plug the smartphone to the latter with the handset’s USB cord and, after a connection is established, you can go to the interface of the Unlock-Root and click on this button: root.
- Then look for a list which includes some Android models supported by the tool. Choose the one you own, then begin the rooting phase.
- As soon as the procedure is completed, there will be a message of confirmation coming up on the screen. As soon as it appears, it is recommended to do the following: unplug the two devices from each other and restart the phone.
