Rooting an Android device means to be able to gain access to restricted areas of your Android device. You gain the privileges of a “Super User”.

After rooting your Android device, you can

  • Load custom made ROM’s

  • Increase performance (Clocking)

  • Increase battery efficiency

  • Gaining access to apps which require rooting.

And much much more….

WHO SHOULD ROOT ??

             I.    Anybody who wants to experience his phones extreme capabilities.

             II.   If your company based ROM sucks (My Motorola Defy ROM did)

             III. Your carrier has restricted your access rights or put you under some constraints.

Things to be AWARE of :

  1. Rooting your phone may void you off your phone warranty.

  2. Rooting can damage your phone (It may never wake up from its sleep)

  3. Security of the phone may become vulnerable.

  4. Rooted phones can be un-rooted as well (cheers for that !!)

Note:- Point no. 2 may arise some concerns within yourself but chill, if you follow the rooting techniques properly, you shouldn’t face any real trouble.

So Let’s get started…

HOW TO ROOT YOUR DEVICE

In this article I will discuss about the SuperOneClick technique, the most easiest way to root your Android device.

So here’s how SuperOneClick works:

  1. On your Android phone,

                     a) We need to enable the USB debugging mode first

                         Settings   → Applications →Development →USB Debugging (Check it)→OK

                     b) Now check  your Android version

                         Settings→About Phone→Android Version (Check the Android version number)

                    c) Now, to unmount the SD card go to

                        Settings→Storage→Unmount SD card

 

  1. Download and install SuperOneClick

  1. Connect your phone to your PC.

  2. Open SuperOneClick application installed on your PC.

  3. Now click on root

  4. If it prompts by asking “Whether your Android version is 2.0 or higher” Click YES if it is.

            (You had checked the Android version earlier remember..!!)

  1. Then when it prompts “Root files have been installed, would you like to run a test”. Click YES.

  2. Now on the next prompt regarding the ‘su’ command, click OK.

  3. Finally you will receive a message saying “Your  device has been rooted

So congozz you have successfully rooted your device without any trouble.

Now be ready to experience the next level of Android….
