A couple of recommendations before finishing

Whatever our situation, it should be remembered that when we root an Android terminal, we are touching "the guts" of our device. This means that it is a delicate process and there can always be something that goes wrong. Let's keep it in mind!

To avoid misfortune as much as possible:

  • Let's make sure the device is fully charged before starting to root.
  • If we connect it to the PC, let's remember to enable «USB debugging».
  • If there is an exclusive method to root our terminal, it will always be much more secure and reliable than any universal app. The risks will be much lower.
  • If you have a Huawei, Samsung, LG, Sony or Nexus, take a look at THIS POST.
  • If you have a Xiaomi, Moto, HTC or One Plus, take a look at this ANOTHER POST.

A rooted device offers us full control over our Android, and allows us to better manage the terminal battery, make better backups, install ROMs, use more powerful WiFi tools and a host of other options and customizations. In short, it allows us to get more out of our mobile or tablet.
