The rooting of your Android phone gives you better access to its operating system, allowing a higher level of customization. Since there is so much variety in Android phones, there is no single rooting method that will work for every phone or Android version. To get started, you ll need to download the appropriate rooting software for your phone model (most are only for Windows), enable USB debugging on the phone, and set up your USB drivers on your computer. Do not forget to save your data before rooting.
