Are you looking for a simple root solution compatible with the Motorola One Power? If you are we might have the best rooting method that can be currently applied on your brand new Motorola branded smartphone. This process is intuitive and can be quickly completed even by a newbie who is on his first root experience – in that respect you have to know that we will be using the latest built of Magisk, a great app that can now grant root access on the Motorola One Power. Of course, the steps explained below will take you through the actual process that must be completed, so do check everything that’s detailed here.
The root access should be gained on your Motorola One Power if you want to have more control over the Android core system. Basically, once root is enabled the Android UI will be unlocked – the factory / default restrictions will be removed. Thus, in the end you will be able to change built-in apps and processes and further customize and optimize the pre-installed Android OS. Aditionally, you can upgrade general performance and obtain better results in term of speeds and battery life when using your One Power on a daily basis.
That’s possible because on a rooted Motorola One Power you can apply different tweaks. And among the most popular tweaking solutions we must mention the following ones: you can install apps from other sources than Google Play, you can add root-only tools, you can remove bloatware, start-up programs and other built-in apps, you can set up custom MODs and kernels, you can flash custom ROMs like Lineage OS, AOKP or Paranoid Android, you can overclock / undervolt CPU frequencies and so much more.
Of course, unlocking the built-in Android system is not a process supported by your OEM or by Motorola. So, you are on your own – you have to apply this process on your own risk: if something bad happens it’s your responsibility and do note that during the root operation your Motorola One Power warranty will be void. Hint: you can restore the warranty, when needed, by reinstalling the stock Android OS, situation during which you will also manage to unroot your One Power, to relock the bootloader and to reinstall the stock recovery image.
A backup shouldn’t be optional as while achieving root your files might get corrupted or erased. Thus, on your Motorola One Power you have to secure your contacts, call logs, texts, images, videos, audio files, market apps, internet settings, calendar info, saved passwords, IMEI / NVRAM data and similar other packages which might still be required afterwards. A general backup can be applied easily and in different ways: you can choose to use Motorola’s cloud storage services, you can sycn different files with your Google Account or you can download and install backup and restore apps from Google Play (make sure you download already tested tools).
A Nandroid backup is also indicated in this situation – since this process will save the current Android OS that runs on your device, if the root process will not end as expected you can then choose to go back to stock easily by reinstalling the Nandroid package.
This root solution will work only if other two additional operations are first applied on your Motorola One Power. Thus, you should first unlock your phone’s bootloader as that’s the first step that must be applied when trying to fully unlock the Android UI. Then, you must install TWRP recovery on your One Power – Magisk, as this is the root tool that will be used, can be flashed only if a custom recovery environment can be booted and used.
Other pre-requisites that should be checked and applied first:
- On your smartphone make sure that you can access the USB Debugging field – it should be located under general Settings; if you can’t, navigate towards About Phone and from there tap repeatedly on Built Number until the ‘you are a developer’ message shows up.
- On your handset check the USB Debugging option – you can find it under Menu - > Settings - > Developer Options.
- Make sure that a computer or a notebook can be used as there you will have to download the root exploit.
- Your Motorola One Power and its USB cable are required.
- Charge your device if it runs low on power – plug in the charger if the power is currently lower than 50%. Otherwise your phone can get turned off in the middle of the root operation situation during which you can end up in experiencing software related issues such as boot loops, lags, hangs, screen freeze, battery drain, heating situations, signal strength problems or total blackouts.
