Computer with Odin and CFAutoRoot file. For this tutorial, Samsung galaxy note 10.1 (3G, Wi-Fi) tablet device is used.

  3. You can safely disconnect your device after the pass message has shown up and then confirmed it’s rooted by installing the root checker app from Google play store.

Is it Advisable to Root Android Phones in 2019?

Well, the answer to this is no and yes.

No, because most of the tweaks that make Android rooting compulsory are now added to most popular OEMs by default. Latest Samsung, Xiaomi, and Oneplus smartphones give the user more freedom to tweak stuff than it was in the past.

Features such as aggressive battery saving, call recording, call blocking, keyword blacklisting, message blocking, unique fonts selection, and many others are now a click away unlike before.  So, unless there are some special functions you’d like to use, I don’t see the need for rooting your phones immediately after a new purchase.

And yes because developers need rooting to enjoy their Android phone and devices. Popular root apps like Lucky patcher, Xposed Framework, System App Remover, and the rest of them needs root access to work properly.

A lot of developers and super users can’t use an Android device without some of these apps. So rooting for them is crucial irrespective of 2019, 2020 or even 2050.

Wrap Up on Android Rooting Software and Apps:

These rooting apps and software methods should be able to grant root access to your Android devices as well as unroot them when the need arises.

Note: We included some paid Android rooting tools from Wondershare Inc. This is because the root tool (or rooting software) comes with a trial version for users to try the rooting function before deciding to go for them.

As  a solid rooting tool, they will come in handy as a viable root Android software for everyday users. Our guide on how to root all android phones with Vroot (linked above) should serve as a reference for using the computer root programs.

At the moment, we are testing iSkysoft Toolbox – Android Root function and how well it works for rooting android 6.0.1, Android 7.0 Nougat and other tougher Android phone versions. Once we confirm it as a top rooting toolbox to get root access on Android with ease, we’ll create a room for it on the list.

Do not forget to leave us a feedback if there be any challenges. Help us improve on this list by dropping the list of Android phones you were able to get root access on using any of these rooting methods.

Update: iSkysoft Android Rooting Toolbox (not 100% Free).

A few things to Know About Rooting Android in 2020

A lot had changed in the Android Ecosystem, judging from when this guide was first written. A lot of things that require rooting to work are now hard-coded into most ROMs. Features such as call blocking, call recording, etc. come by default with Xiaomi MIUI and similar brands. Here are some answers to clear your doubts about rooting Android Devices.

Is there any Sense in Rooting Android Phone these days?

Unlike before, most features that require a tweak or rooting to work are now hard-coded into ROMs. If you’re fortunate to have one of these ROMs that includes custom fonts, call blocking, ads blocking, call recording, etc. then there’s no need to root your device.

Is Rooting Android a Safe Practice?

Some devices such as Xiaomi, Google Nexus, and Pixel devices are safer to root than most others. This is because they have unlockable bootloaders, can be rooted easily and also have system images that can be used to restore the phone or tab in case something goes wrong. In all, we strongly advise against rooting for regular users, only advanced users that need superuser access should consider rooting their phones.

Are there Risks Associated with Rooting in 2019/2020?

Well, lots of threats and malicious apps are released daily, and since rooting grants you superuser access, such apps can exploit these loopholes and make away with your sensitive data. Warranty loss, phone bricking, and malware spread are some of the major risks that are associated with rooting Android devices.

Is Root Without PC Apps Safe to Use on Newer Devices?

Irrespective of a newer or older device, using a malicious “root without PC” app is one way to expose your phone to multiple security risks. I’ll recommend only trusted root apps that are downloaded from their official websites for such. Always do a full ROM backup before trying any root app you aren’t sure about.


  1. Hey thanks bro but I am Searching for an app which can Root my Samsung galaxy s duos 3 , I have downloaded many and searched a lot for it but nothing is working ..

      • Hi Obasi! Yes i am still trying to figure out how to root this F-05D.
        I start to lose hope in it. That permission denied in the middle of the root process is driving me violently crazy.
        Do give me a hand friend.
        Thank you!

          • I haven’t laid my hand on this device model yet, i’ll advice you look into the recently updated 1-click root software or look for a custom ROM for your device’s model.

          • I have tried 1 click root a couple of weeks ago but it fails. the device when updated to 4.0.3 it becomes almost “impossible” to be rooted. I think i wont be able to install the custom ROM unless rooted. when in recovery, i cant find any option for zip/backup install. all i can do is either factory reset or update via the official ROM .enc file. I will try again with 1-click root. Thank you for your time ☺

          • I have just downloaded and tried cydia impactor but unfortunately the result is :((( “Error /data/local/tmp/impactor-1”

          • in that case mate, your best bet will be to post a “custom ROM request” at xda forum.
            You never can tell, a developer there might have time to hack in a solution for this.

            I haven’t got the chance to touch one from here.
            All the best

    • Is there anything exactly you’d like to accomplish on the Windows device you aren’t able to do right now? Windows doesn’t have as much apps as android which makes the rooting not as advantageous as the android counterpart.

      Anyways, to unlock the bootloader of any particular Nokia Lumia and/or Windows mobile Phone models, and rightly enable the Root Access on windows, you’ll need download and use the awesome tool at http://www.wpinternals.net/index.php/downloads

      The Windows Phone Internals app works well on rooting several Windows phone models

      • Vroot (iRoot), Framaroot 1.9.3, KingoRoot (PC and apk method; got FC after installation ) and WeakSauce, haven’t solved nothing.

        SRSroot has broken links, and the kit hosted by mega.nz, my Bitdefender woun’t let me download it.

        UnlockRoot has broken host.

        KingRoot has the program in chineese, and i tryed to work things blindfolded, and when I reached the step to press the big blue button on (PC version), nothing happened. Also, I tryed apk version (3 times) and no succes. I’ve uninstalled the again and again, and last time the app sayd that “Root access is unavailable”.

        RootMaster apk is in chineese and at one point i couldn’t understand what he asked me so i canceled the installation.

        z4root apk freezez my phone.

        Universal Androot can’t be installed.

        • Depending on what message you do get while trying to root with either vroot or kingroot software? it could be a question of partial root, in that case, installing super SU and the binary files should be able to complete the rooting. Else, I’ll look out for your device model and see what tool currently works for it.


          Attempt rooting it with the trial version of Wondershare mobilego software and see how far it goes

          • on iRoot says that “HTC Z520e cannot root permanently” and kingroot showed me at the final of the process: one and a half star, 0 19 and 478. Still no root :(

          • MobileGo asked me to allow Superuser Request, so he can continue his thing, but Superuser say’s that “There is no SU binary installed and SuperSU cannot install it. This is a problem!”. What’s the next step?

          • So i installed WondershareMobileGO, run it (4th times, still no root). First and second time asked me to grant acces to SuperSU to do his thing, but an error came up, something about Binarys. 3rd time the program managed to show me the SuperSU with Grant acces button, but after reboot, there was no more root. And now Wondershare is working from about an h, and nothing showed, my phone not even rebooted during this process :(. What should I do? Close the program and try again?

          • Seems to have have rooted temporarily but not completely. I’ll take up this device model and update you with an app to root permanently once I replicate same from my end. Sorry for the many inconveniences so far.

  23. Hi guys. I have an lgl 52vl. It is running Android 5.1.1. I have been trying desperately trying to root this phone. As far as I can tell, it’s currently not possible. I have tried EVERY rooting app I can find… APK’s as well as PC-based applications. Every one of them fails. I root all of my Android devices, and this one is essentially useless to me without root access. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    • Iroot and kingroot mobile can root this model easily. Just give it a shot and get back to us if there be other challenges

  24. helo
    i have haier esteem i80
    i used kingoroot, v root one click root but it fail to root….. help me it has android version 4.4.2 kernel version 3.4.67

    • They (PC version) would sometimes root it partially, but installing the super SU and binaries would help in such cases, else I would take this model into consideration when updating this post in future.

    • I will advice you install the SuperSu app after the partial rooting and accept when it asks you to Update the SuperSU binaries. That should resolve the partial rooting challenges in most cases.

    • Are you sure that the firmware file you were trying to root with is for this exact model? That’s where to start your troubleshooting from as trying to use a wrong firmware file to root would usually fail in most cases.

      You can attempt rooting with any of the all-in-one rooting methods to see if any works for your device.

  25. I had a stylo 6.0 marshmallow i rooted it with the king root app and after it rooted and rebooted it said secure booting error 1003. Im afraid if i root it with my zte warp elite it would do the same thing any suggestions

  26. I find this post helpful as I was able to root a difficult tab with it. I switched to supersu by downloading it from play store

  27. Sup man, i have lg vs920 and its showing no service even though am able to receive messages but i cant make calls or switch on the data. I wanna know if rooting the phone can help solve this problem. Thank You.

  28. Hey man i have a Samsung SM-G531F (It’s Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime).Wich software do i have to use to be sure it will root my phone?

  29. KingRoot = JUNK!!

    1 bunch of advertising files
    1x junk files games
    few, and difficult to remove.
    also remove the program itself gives much trouble !!

    • You can reverse root by KingRoot by using the desktop app Alex and the junk app loaded during root is their Chinese appstore bloatware. It can be removed normally or with the help of system app remover, one of the root apps featured here.

  30. I can’t even get to downloading iroot. It either installs an apk for a completely different program or gives me a broken zip file

  31. Hi!

    Thanks a Ton for this great post.
    My phone is LY L7.
    1. Vroot Software did not work.
    2. kingoapp did it.

    Initially what I thought was, rooting is a very complex and a risky thing. But rooting with these tools was a breeze.

    Keep up the Good Work!
    Thank You.

  32. When I try to root my moto e 1st gen. running 5.1 using kingoroot, after completion of 90% process it gives out an error code 0x1ED1BA what do I do to overcome it.

  35. Do you know of a way to root lg volt 2 I’ve tried many apps but none work. And it’s hard to do with PC I prefer an app. Any ideas? Please help.

  36. I have Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-1900G version with custom Omni rom… I tried Kingroot before and it doesn’t successfully root it… It get stuck at 60% or so and freeze… I tried this multiple time but still fail… The apps said that 13 people succeed in rooting it… I need help

  37. Hi, sorry for the late comment, but i have a Huawei Y330-U01, and the only method that worked for me was Root Genius (pc version) but when i restart my phone, the root acces go’s away. I though it was because i have a locked bootloader, but i doesn’t have a bootloader, so do you know what I should do?

  38. It’s stop at 65% process using kingroot. Then I tried install super su and open the super su app, a message appear told me to root the phone 1st. I re-open the kingroot app back then try to continue the root process, still failed at 65% With a message no solution to root my Lenovo k5-t3 note

  39. Any advice on rooting a LG g pad x 8.3 from Verizon wireless? It’s running 5.0.2 android. Exact model is vk815 running software version vk81511A.

    I’ve tried many methods, they all fail at the same step; once in download mode on the device and connected to my pc via “send_command.exe \\.\com5” the command “sh /data/local/tmp/lg_root.sh dummy 1 /data/local/tmp/update-supersu-v2.46.zip /data/local/tmp/busybox” does not properly run, in fact it failed each of the 100+ times I’ve tried.

    I’ve tried most of the “one click” softwares listed here, they have all failed in total, not even getting a partial root.

    Without root android isn’t any better then a windows or apple phone, both of which I consider bricked from the factory.

    This tablet is the only Android I’ve not been able to root, and I have a nice collection, starting with gingerbread up to lollipop. (2 devices I have WERE running newer versions but I was able to find downgraded roms to make them run lollipop, as it’s my favorite version of Android.)

    I would be most grateful for any help with rooting this tablet.

  40. My Phone is already Rooted and the rooting tool I used is called one Click Root. It’s a nice tool to be honest.

    • That costs almost $40, and $10 more per phone. Motorola will HELP you root your phone for free. Free, like these methods shown.

  47. Hi Obasi.. I try several root apps but none of them works on my galaxy A5 2017 7.0.
    All apps tell me root failed.. ????
    Only the paid one tells me root is possible but if not…. i paid for nothing.
    What your best advice?

    • HI Ritchie,

      I’ll try to see if I can place my hands on this exact model and then give you an update. But then, there’s a money-back guarantee for the paid premium rooting app(s).

  48. Good Android rooting guide Article. It includes so many valuable rooting apps and solid rooting programs. Thanks a Lot.
