Obtaining superuser certification on Android devices has become common practice, and performing the root operation, a process that generates administrator permissions does not require more advanced knowledge from those who decide to waive the warranty on a device. The increase in the number of programs dedicated to this operation is also due to the increase in the demand for services that request SU authorization ( learn more ).
But the concept of “root” still frightens Linux- based, the superuser licensing process enables independently-developed applications posted outside of Google Play to be installed on smartphones with the “Search Giant “.
The price users pay for the Android release can be high (in addition to losing the warranty, those who root can compromise the software on the device). Fact is that doing rotate, for example, different thematic interfaces that require access to the root is a tempting invitation. Want to venture into the “world without limits” that root devices unveil? Then follow our list of applications that, through a few commands, are able to unlock your mobile.
Warning: when performing the root process, the warranty offered by the manufacturer of your phone is lost. The SU certificate generation program can still damage your software.
The installation of the applications responsible for performing the root operation will be done through a computer or through APKs. This means that you must allow the installation of downloaded apps from unknown sources on your mobile device. Go to the “Settings” and then go to “Lock screen and security”. Find “Unknown sources” and enable the function.
To do root
We will list below four applications capable of performing the operation. Some of them require the execution of a few commands, others have to be operated via PC with a cell phone.
KingRoot is one of the most popular cloud-based applications dedicated to today’s root operation. In order for SU certification to be acquired, the user only has to install the app and tap the center button of the screen. Although it is in Chinese, the program does not present any difficulty of operation.
Once the model of your smartphone is identified, the process is then started. If successful, a green “V” signal is displayed, as in the picture above. KingRoot completes more than 60% of the time root operation on Android devices, which makes the application one of the sharpest tools available.
Kingo Android Root is another program capable of performing root automatically. This application also has a computer version. If you choose to use the PC, connect the device via USB and make sure to enable the “USB Debugging” mode – if this option is not displayed, go to “On the phone” and repeatedly touch “System version “.
Then the root check will be started. Once the required drivers are downloaded, all you have to do is press “ROOT”. Click “Finish” after the action is completed and you’re done. On your phone, the APK will work as KingRoot: just touch the central button of the app for root to be done.
One Click Root (paid)
One Click Root is a paid application not only capable of providing superuser certification. The service supports the devices and provides instructions on how to install ROMs and MODs, for example, through a 24-hour online help desk available for every day of the week.
