Hello Friends, today I am going to show you how to Root your android device.

What is Root/Rooting of an Android Device?

First of all, Do you know WHAT is ROOT?? If you don’t then first lets find out what is ROOT? Root is mainly a process to give you access directly to the Operating System. Yes, its true. You can make any changes in your device after rooting. You will be allowed to access the Android‘s Subsystem.

Why rooting is required?

When you want to overcome the limitations set by the hardware manufacturers on the devices thereby preventing the ability to alter system level applications and settings, which requires some administrative level permissions. In Android rooting sometimes rooting leads to replace the operating system as a whole.

We all know that Android is derived from the Linux kernel and so rooting any Android device is as equivalent as gaining permissions on any LINUX or UNIX based operating system.

Feels great! Right?? With Root comes great risk, you will VOID your Warranty After doing it, But You can get your warranty back by doing the process reverse, Yes you can get your  warranty back by UN-ROOTING your device.

SO lets START,

Step:1  First you need to download Framaroot from the link given below. It’s an app to Root your phone in simple way. After downloading the app in your device, start the app and it will appear like this.

You will see the option Install SuperSu and something like Aragorn and Gandalf. But This is the tutorial for SAMSUNG GALAXY CORE so there are only two options,there are different options for different devices like Boromir, Faramir, Pippin, Gollum, Legolas etc. So from these two options you have to choose one. So what to choose? Well it depends on your Phone.

So I am going to show you you the example of Rooting Samsung galaxy core. In case of this device the option will be Gandalf, by clicking on it you will have your device rooted!!!!

So reboot your phone and SuperSU will be installed.

Open it and your rooted phone is ready to be operated. You might brick your phone,but there are minimum chance of bricking your device so don’t be afraid.

[alert size=”alert-block” variation=”alert-error”] Disclaimer: I Will not be responsible if any thing happens to your device in the process of rooting, In case if you want to get Your Warranty back then you have to simply Unroot the phone.[/alert]

Go to Framaroot, press Install superSU then you will see an option UN-ROOT click on it. Choose Gandalf,

  1. such a informative article..
    thanks for sharing it…it helps me to root my android device…..
    Maintain your long term relationship:tips

  2. First of all i want to stop u from flowing some insecure info’s like

    1) The one u talked about unrooting and getting back warranty
    – The devices having 2.2 and older worked with that trick
    -The new devices launching from 2.3 and higher till date 4.4 are having flash counters in form like (0/1), if u root your device once and then again unroot then the counter will turn to (1/1) which when taken to hardware manufacturer gets caught and your warrenty gets void. So be aware of that.

    2) If u have followed XDA then u must be knowing about Unlocking the bootloaders.
    -First of all try unlocking your bootloaders ( in HTC’s , SONY’sand Sony Erricson’s Devices) which can be unlocked
    -Then go for unlockable boot loaders ( of Motorola’s and Early Erricson Phones like X10, X10i etc) where u need to go for side root techniques

    similarly many of things r there..but cant post it all here, simply remember 1 thing- Every device is unique and requires a unique key for unlocking ( here rooting).
    So got 4 it..Good luck

    • First of all you talked about the counters that counts the rooting or Installing the ROM,But Every Problem has its solution
      so there’s an APP “Triangle Away”,With the help of this app you can reset the counter.
      2nd you said unlocking the boot loaders yes i know the unlocking the boot loaders , as this is the Beginners Article i cannot give this option instead Framaroot is the Easy way,so take a note on that.
      Thanks for your Consideration

  3. I simply want to mention I’m all new to blogging and absolutely liked your blog site. Almost certainly I’m planning to bookmark your blog post . You actually have exceptional posts. With thanks for sharing with us your website page.

  7. Hello, I have a pioneer r1 7″ tablet that automatically did a system upgrade after a boot and hung on 14 or 18 files upgraded. It hung like this for hours. I rebooted the tablet but after it got to the pioneer logo where it is animated but wont boot the rest of the way. I am not happy with the tech support for this tablet not a very customer centric company. the only help they were going to give was to hit the reset button on the back which did nothing. So pioneer told me that i have to send the tablet to them and pay the shipping and im not wanting to do this. Is there any way to get to the factory reset with out using the reset button or is there a way i can manually install the android os with out having to send the tablet in to them to only be told they cant do anything with it. Please help.

    • Hi Raven,
      so its like theres a problem in software upgrading in your tablet,so you have to reset it by going in stock recovery mode and factory reset it.

  8. hello I hope you can help me find a way to get to the factory restore with only a power button. I have looked every where for help and so far this forum has been the only thing to seem to help. Pioneer customer service sucks and all they want is more money. so please if you can help me please help.

  9. Hi I’m Jagadeesh!
    I’m currently using Samsung Galaxy S – Gt-7562

    but I tried the above steps & even my device shows only one option (Gandalf).
    It displays try some other exploits!

  10. Hi :)) may i ask if this supports rooting starmobile engage 7+ and starmobile engage 9i. Also which rooting method should i choose? Thanks in advance.

  11. Nice informative article about rooting…am sure you can find a solution to my predicament. I bought from Globe the bundle that included phone, broadband, and HOOQ. An application wherein you can play (stream/) movies, or download. I was able to install it right on my lenovo P780 cell phone, but I also have a Starmobile engage 9i which will be very convenient to watch movies compared with a cell phone. Unfortunately, an error message pops up, after login and getting on the movie. “Oops It looks like you’re trying to play on a rooted device. HOOQ does not allow download or streaming on rooted devices due to content rights” So I presume the table is rooted, and I did scout around on various site and on play store, only to find app on how to root. I believe I need an application to UNROOT this starmobile, and how to. I saw several app on play store to unroot, but they ask which application should I UNROOT? Can you please help. Thanks and regards

  12. how to root my star mobile play neo? the system always say it is not available to exploit….what the nessesary solution to my problem.tnx
