Want to root your android device but do not have access to a pc?? Or do you just want to root your device without having to go through a million and one steps and require you to be a expert to understand?? Well this is probably the most easiest way to root most android devices and one of the safest ways as well. Still as a warning there is still a possibility to “brick” or break your device even though its not extremely common so use this tutorial at your own risk.
Step by step: 1. Enable usb debugging mode in settings under developer options.
2. Download and install Ministro II (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.kde.necessitas.ministro&hl=en). After installation you will notice that there is no option to open the app but don’t worry you wont need to its only necessary for downloading the libraries for the app that does the job of rooting the device.
3. Do a Google search for Poot apk or Poot-debug apk. I will post a link but the links sometimes change so if in the future it doesn’t work just Google it cause there are many links to this app it is very popular. After you find a copy download it than Install it.
Poot-debug.apk - https://www.dropbox.com/s/odgbq448eova7ag/Poot-debug.apk
4. Open Poot app once its installed and allow Ministro to download the libraries. Once they are downloaded the app will run and all you have to do is press poot. The app will root the device and you will be ready for the last few finishing touches.
5. Download and install Superuser by ChainsDD - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.noshufou.android.su&hl=en There is a different version of a similar app by another developer I wont mention names but the actual app is named Superuser as well. That particular Superuser is not exactly user friendly for those without the experience in Linux or Android so it would be my recommendation for those of you that aren’t the most familiar with android and Linux to use Superuser by the developer ChainsDD. Its far easier to just update the binary with this one. After the app is installed open it. There will be a notification that pops up on the screen asking if you want to allow Superuser to have administrator access to your device make sure you allow it and that the box to remember that choice is checked or it will not work properly. Swipe to the left of the screen to show the Info options. Press where the update binary button is and it will first check which version su binary you have which should be outdated and a button will appear on the bottom of the screen to update. Update the binary and thats it. The device is rooted!!
But wait how do you know for sure its rooted?? Easy there is an app called Root Checker - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.joeykrim.rootcheck&hl=en that will allow you to check weather or not its rooted at the press of a button. Easy right??
