Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - MOBILES -

While there are a plenty of meth­ods to root an An­droid de­vice, here are few pop­u­lar ones that we are list­ing. Please note, all the three process uses An­droid De­Bug­ging. One of the most pop­u­lar and univer­sal root­ing pro­ce­dures is us­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion z4­root, which has a sin­gle but­ton to root your smart­phone. This ap­pli­ca­tion is not avail­able on Play­Store and you will have to down­load the .apk file from the web. Plug your phone to the PC us­ing the USB ca­ble, copy the .apk file to the root of the SD card, open the z4­root apk file us­ing file man­ager, in­stall and se­lect the root op­tion. It is com­pat­i­ble with many phones. Do search the web for the same. Su­perOneClick is an­other sim­ple tool for root­ing. Com­pat­i­ble with a wide range of An­droid phones, it per­mits par­tial or full root­ing and can also be used for un­root­ing. How­ever, it in­volves a few steps. Down­load Su­per One Click. Turn on USB De­bug­ging mode on the smart­phone—this can be lo­cated un­der set­tings (de­vel­op­ment). Con­nect the phone to the PC. Ex­pand the Su­per One Click zip file and click the Su­perOneClick icon to run it. The SD card should not be mounted. If you have enough knowl­edge about tech­nol­ogy you can go in for this third method. This method in­volves turn­ing S-OFF, in­stalling cus­tom re­cov­ery and then flash­ing Rooted ROM. For in­stance, the most pop­u­lar S-OFF tool for HTC smart­phones is the ‘Rev­o­lu­tion­ary’ tool.
