Being able to use our Android powered smartphone or tablet on full power without dealing with any restrictions is something that we all want to achieve. However, due to dedicated restrictions gaining root access (as that’s how you can unleash the full potential of your handset) is harder from one Android update to another. Thus, finding the right root solution for a particular device might be quite tricky. That’s why you should use a general toolkit designed to do all the work for you.
Yes, that’s possible. You can use a generic software in order to successfully root almost any Android based device, regardless the Android firmware version that is powering the handset. I’m talking about the new iSkysoft software which is offering support for more than 7000 smartphones and tablets. So, most likely this tool will be efficient for your handset too – don’t worry, if your device isn’t supported you will be prompted with a warning message and that’s it; your handset will be in safe hands as you won’t risk in bricking its Android system (in the worst scenario you will only remain with a locked device).
As already mentioned, gaining root access is important as that’s how you can unlock the Android core system. Otherwise you will be left will all those annoying factory and default restrictions that are there from day one. If root isn’t ensured you cannot customize and optimize your Android device. You cannot tweak your smartphone / tablet and you cannot change anything that’s there by default. On the other hand, once root access is enabled your possibilities are endless as your handset will become your new playground.
Here are the most popular custom operations that can be easily and quickly performed once the root process is completed: installing a custom recovery image such as CWM or TWRP recovery, making Nandroid backups by using the custom recovery image, flashing root-only apps from Google Play and from other sources, getting features, apps and capabilities that can’t be downloaded from the stock Android platform, install custom MODs and kernels, update the Android system with custom ROMs such as Lineage OS, AOKP or Paranoid Android, remove bloatware and start-up programs, overclock or undervolt CPU frequencies and so on.
Unfortunately, as you can already tell, getting rid of all those built-in security features can’t be a process that is supported by Google or by your OEM. And this aspect leads to the following conclusion: if you choose to root your Android device you will lose its warranty. This is the major downside that’s related with the root process.
Additionally, on a rooted device you cannot receive OTAs. So, for being able to get official Android notifications you will first have to revoke the root access a process that can be completed by re-flashing the stock Android firmware.
Moreover, in order to make sure that everything will go without unexpected problems, before gaining root access you should backup your Android device – even though while using the iSkysoft root toolkit you shouldn’t worry about your data, the best will be to secure your personal files as after all we are talking about personal info. Don’t worry, the backup can be easily and quickly applied by using dedicated backup and restore apps from Google Play, by syncing your data with your Google Account or by using built-in cloud storage services.
As you will see, the iSkysoft is more than a one-click-root solution available for more than 7000 Android based smartphones and tablets. The tool can also be used for completing other operations: data backup & restore, data recovery, data extraction (from damaged devices), lock screen removal, data eraser, SIM unlock and more.
Anyway, for being able to successfully complete all the steps from below, first you should make sure that a computer can be used. On this computer install your phone’s drivers first. Your device and its USB cable must be there too. On your handset you must gain Developer Rights first – usually, that can be done easily: access the About Phone section and start tapping repeatedly on Built Number until the ‘you are a developer’ message is displayed. Good; now, afterwards access Developer Options (within “menu - > settings”) and check the USB Debugging field.
You should also charge your handset before doing anything else. The battery power that’s left should be at least above the 50% threshold. Otherwise your device might get switched off right in the middle of the root process (different malfunctions might be caused due to the sudden turn off) – unfortunately, if that happens your device might get soft bricked. So, try to avoid unpleasant situations by plugging in the charger if that’s required.
