In this guide, I’ll discuss how to root any Android device. At TrueAndroid we had written countless articles about rooting various devices but still we left many. That’s why we thought about writing this one. Android is a vast universe and the developers are the heart of it. There are many developers who spending their time to create free tools to make our life easy. There are few tools that could easily root your Android mobile, tablet, camera or TV. In this article I’m going to list some tools that you can use to root your device without much technical knowledge. Before that you may want to read the benefits of rooting.
Warning: Rooting a device may void the warranty on the device. It may also make the device unstable or if not done properly, may completely brick the device. Some methods may install additional apps/software on your device. TrueAndroid Team or the author does not take any responsibility for your device. Root at your own risk and only if you understand what you are doing!
1. FramaRoot: Nice little app to root many devices. You can checkout this app to see if it can root your Android device or not. This app isn’t available in Play Store, you need to download the apk and install it via a file browser. You must allow unknown sources while asked. [Download App]
2. KingRoot: This is a Windows based utility that help you to obtain root. Its a one click root toolkit. All you have to do, download and install the tool and then connect your device to PC.

3. WinDroid Toolkit: Another Windows only toolkit. However, little bit more advance one. It helps you to unlock bootloader, flash custom recovery and obtain root by flashing the SuperSU zip via recovery. [Download WinDroid Toolkit]
4. Magick: Its little advance tool. Those who have custom recovery, can just flash the zip and install Magisk Manager to use root. And those who don’t have a custom recovery, need to install the Magisk Manager first. Then open the app and press Install > Install > Patch Boot Image File, and select your stock boot image file. If you are a Samsung user and want to flash the boot image via Odin then you must follow this first: go to Settings > Update Settings > Patched Boot Output Format, and select .img.tar. The patched image can be found on your device download folder. Copy the image to your PC and flash it via Odin (Samsung Users) or flash it using fastboot command: fastboot flash boot patched_boot.img . You must setup ADB and FastBoot support, if you not have it already. It will be good idea to copy the patched image file to ADB folder to make flashing easy. [Download Magisk]
