How to root Android on any mobile device How do you hear it!

If you are one of those who always tries to get the most out of your mobile phone, you have surely heard of root permissions on Android or rooting Android. But what exactly does root mean and what implications can it have? In today's post we will see how to root any Android phone through a simple process. But first, let's see what rooting means ...

What is to root or root a mobile?

Some time ago, when Android was in its first years of life, many of these phones that worked under its umbrella failed to show their full potential. The apps were slow, very heavy or consumed too many resources, and the solution to the problem was root.

When you root a mobile, what you do is obtain administrator permissions, which give you full access to all the files of your phone's operating system, being able to do things that you cannot otherwise due to lack of permissions. With administrator permissions you can change everything.

Android is based on Linux, and uses its permission system on files and folders to function. Root is nothing more than the name of the superuser "its”From Linux. When you activate root you are simply recovering a type of permissions that had previously been removed from your system.

Is it advisable to root Android?

The most obvious answer is "Of course! Put me quarter and half root!”. But before we jump into the open field of administrator permissions we have to think very seriously about what that entails.

Having root permissions is great and allows us to remove all those unnecessary programs that the manufacturer has put in our system and that until now we could not uninstall. We can also install apps that make the most of our hardware and we can get more out of the phone.

But you also have to consider the cons. In many companies if you root your mobile you will lose the warranty. In addition, it must be borne in mind that we are opening a door that was expressly closed. If we are not careful we can turn our smartphone into a brick.

¿So it is worth rooting Android? I think so, but only if we are very clear about it.

Apps to root Android

There are many applications to root Android. Depending on the make and model of your smartphone, some root applications will work on your device and others will not. It's just a matter of finding the key that opens your door.

Luckily, there is an application called Kingo root which is tremendously effective with virtually any device.

You have to be careful because root applications are a hotbed of malware and viruses, and if you use the wrong program you can end up with a virus like the crown of a pine tree.

Luckily, Kingo Root is a program that we can trust, and in XDA-Developers give a good account of it. To make sure, before doing this tutorial I have also rooted my phone with Kingo Root and I have not had any problems, so we can confirm that Kingo Root is an application that does what it promises. No more no less. Let's get to it then!

To root an Android device we have 2 well differentiated options:

  • Through a program connecting the mobile to the PC.
  • Through an app on the mobile.

Next, I am going to explain the 2 methods, but I would recommend, whenever possible, do it via PC. Let's say that rooting a device from an app is like operating on a patient without anesthesia ... you understand.

Root Android from PC

To root our Android phone from the PC we are going to divide the process into 2 parts: the actions that must be carried out on the device and those that must be carried out from the PC.

Actions to be taken on the Android device

Go to the phone settings "Settings -> Developer options"And activates"USB debugging”. If your version of Android does not have “Developer options"Go to"About device”And click between 5 and 7 times on“Build number”. You will see how now the developer options appear and you can enter to enable USB debugging.

Actions to be carried out on the PC

Download and install the Kingo Root application for Windows. You can download it from HERE. Be careful when installing it, since during the process you will be invited to install other third-party applications on your computer (ByteFence and the browser Chromium). When this message appears, click on "Ignore”.

From here the process is very simple. Once installed Kingo Root start it and connect your Android smartphone to your PC via USB. Once the application detects the device, we will only have to click on the button "ROOT”.

Now Kingo Root will start the rooting process. The process may take about 5 minutes to complete, and the phone may automatically reboot a couple of times.

When the Android device has been rooted you will see the following message on the screen: “ROOT SUCCESS”. Objective achieved.

From here you can use an app like Root Checker to confirm that indeed the administrator permissions have been granted correctly.

Root Android directly from your mobile

As I mentioned a moment ago, rooting a phone with an app on your own mobile is like operating hot, and if it can be avoided, much better. But not everyone has a PC from which to perform the rooting process.

If this is your case, you can easily do it using the app version of Kingo Root:

  • Enable USB debugging from the phone settings. Go to "Settings -> Developer options"And activates"USB debugging”. If your version of Android does not have the “Developer options"Enabled go to"About device”And click between 5 and 7 times on“Build number”. You will see as now if the developer options appear and you can enter to enable USB debugging.
  • Enable the installation of unknown apps from "Settings -> Security -> Unknown sources ”.
  • Load the page // and download the Android version of Kingo Root. A file with the extension “.APK”That you must run and install on your device.
  • Once installed Kingo Root open it. Make sure you have an internet connection and at least 20% battery power before starting the root process.
  • To root the device you just have to click on "Try it”And then click on the large Android icon that you will see on the screen.

Finally, you can check that the device has been rooted correctly through an app like "Root Checker”.

Your device does not work with Kingo Root?

To carry out the root process, Kingo Root searches the cloud for the best method to root your phone, but it may be that the application does not support or cannot root your Android phone. In this case, you should look for an app that can expressly root your device.
