Towelroot is a free android app that gives you full superuser access to make manipulations as you see fit. It has reduced the complexity of rooting a device. The success rate of this program in Android gadgets is more than that of other apps.
Primarily, the app was developed to make a low level change in AT&T devices as well as S5. But from the recent events, it is clear that this application is also very effective for more models of HTC and LG.
The first version was made only for Galaxy S5. The latest version of this application is v3.0. You can try it if you are on Kitkat but for the moment, we would advise against using the same on Lollipop distribution as this is not yet supported. Also Nokia X series are compatible with it.
The computer is one of the most important requirements when you wish to root. But the specialty of Towelroot is that you do not need any computer for using this app.
- Firstly, you should back up all your data to ensure the maximum security of your information in case the process fails or worse.
- Make sure that you have a constant internet connectivity since the whole process will require that you have data access, otherwise you may get bricked.
- Now make sure that you have charged to over 70%, otherwise, hence ensuring that the process is not interfered in any way when you get powered off accidentally.
To proceed, you may simply follow these steps.
Step 1: You will need to download this file from the internet. Save this file somewhere in your internal storage.
Step 2: Now, go to Settings option on your device. Choose the Security from the list. Check the Unknown Source. This will make sure that the application is granted access for installation since it is from third party sources rather than the Google market.
Step 3: Now that you have it, install it.
Step 4: Run the program and tap on the Lambda symbol. If your handset is supported, you will see some progress otherwise you will receive the notification that you are not supported.
Step 5: you have to wait for the entire process to complete after which you should restart and that is it.
After a successful completion of rooting with Towelroot, you can enjoy an array of custom software as you wish. We recommend you to use the latest version for 4.4.2, if you wish to get the latest updates.
