Android is a Linux-based operating system for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. It is developed by the Open Handset Alliance, led by Google.
This operating system is already leading the market. People are enjoying this operating system very much. There are many custom ROMs available for different Android smartphone and different Android versions. To install custom ROM (mods) one needs to root his or her Android device. There are many people out there who wants to ROOT their Android phone but they think it’s very tech-savvy but the truth is it’s not. There are many software out there which can ROOT your Android phone in just one click. You just need simple settings change in your device and it’s all done.
Warning: To be honest, there is NO big risk. But it’s a formality and I have to say this:
Please follow the guide when you completely understand the risk of having a bricked phone at the end. It’s nothing but hacking your phone and system (root) files, if done improperly, it can harm your phone. I will not be responsible if you brick your phone during rooting your device according to the following instructions (but there is a way to unbrick your phone, I have bricked my phone many times, but unbricked them easily, will share the instructions soon).
