How To Root an Android Phone or Tablet

October 2017


Obtaining root privileges allows you to have full control of your Android smartphone or tablet. As a root user, you can uninstall applications installed by your mobile phone operator or install applications that require superuser privileges, among other capabilities.

Rooting Your Android Device

To get started, download Kingo Android Root and install it on your PC. After installation, enable USB debugging on your Android device and connect it to a PC via the data cable. At the interface of Kingo Android Root, click ROOT, and wait for the process to finish rooting:


When finished, click Finish and restart your Android.

With superuser privileges you can, for example, download the Titanium Backup application and uninstall applications installed by the manufacturer or those that you do not need. Another application you could download is DiskDigger, which allows you to recover deleted photos or videos from an Android device.

N.B. Rooting an Android with Kingo Android Root is simple. However, if a problem occurs, your device's system may become unstable. In addition, depending on each operator, the warranty of the equipment may be voided. Given these warnings, if you decide to root your device it is done at your own risk.
