Universal Rooting Methods for Your Android Phone/Tablet

Android is based on Linux so it is flexible as Linux and powerful but only standard user access given to its user. Root access – also known as Superuser access – is the access level on Linux-based devices that lets their users perform administrative tasks including writing to the system partition, installing Linux binaries and scripts at the core level, modifying protected system files and changing their permissions, and using several apps that require such privileges that aren’t possible without root access. We have been covering rooting procedures for several Android devices in the past and in this post, we aim to bring them all together.

The procedure for rooting an Android phone or tablet varies from device to device, based on its version of Android as well as any manufacturer or carrier-specific restrictions placed in its firmware. Unfortunately, we can not cover all the devices and android versions but these universal rooting method should work on many Android phones and tablets.

So, all you have to do is try out the universal methods, and if they don’t work for your device, try searching on Internet or let us know in comments details about your device and we will try to help you.
