What is Rooting?

Rooting means unlocking some special permissions on your android phone Which a normal user won’t be able to access on his phone. Whenever you will root your phone, you will have the ability to perform some special tasks like install Custom ROMs, enhance performance, increase battery life, disable notification bar etc. In simple words, it’s just like having access of root directory of your phone. You can root your phone either via a PC or without a PC. Some devices need a PC in order to be rooted, but some device doesn’t require a computer.

6. How to root Android 6.0.1 without PC

If none of the above methods works for you, then this will surely work. In this method, we will be placing the root script inside the system folder. The process is a bit tricky so follow all steps carefully. This method works on every recovery, but we are using TWRP recovery as an example. The steps will be the same for other recoveries as well.

  1. Download Super-Su root script.zip from here.
  2. Put your device in recovery mode (In this method I am using TWRP Recovery, if you want to use any other recovery then the steps are little different for you).
  3. Click on the install button.
  4. Tap on the Super-Su.zip
  5. Now swipe to flash the file, it will take few seconds to finish.
  6. Once it finished, tap on the “Wipe cache/Dalvik” button and swipe to confirm.
  7. If TWRP asks to install SuperSU now, then choose “Do Not Install”. Because sometimes TWRP unable to find that superSU is already installed on your phone.
  8. A new Super Su app will be installed in your menu which will regulate root privileges in your device.

Advantages and Disadvantages Of Root

Sure rooting your device will give you ultimate control over your phone hardware but it comes with its own disadvantages as well. If you root your device and something goes wrong, your device might go to deep sleep or as we say soft brick. Also, your company will stop giving you customer support if they found out that your device is rooted. Now it depends on you whether you want to risk all that to gain superuser control over your android device.

Final Words

A Rooted device will provide you with some superuser features which can’t be accessed by a normal user. This is the reason why a lot of people wants to root their phone.

  10. No Offense to the Author but your article is full of errors and information that simply isn’t true that would discourage the normal Android user from Rooting and becoming a real Power User… That being said- #1: ROOTING YOUR ANDROID AND UNLOCKING YOUR BOOTLOADER IS NOT AND NEVER HAS BEEN OR WILL BE **ILLEGAL**!!!! In the very early days of Android(cupcake, donut, eclair, froyo, etc) it was almost guaranteed that your service provider/manufacturer would void your warranty because it was very easy for them to tell if you had modified your device(Unlocked bootloader, Root)- Today it is next to impossible to void your warranty this way as many bootloaders are relockable and getting rid of root is just a matter of a tapping your screen a few times!
    I know this is a kinda old thread to write this post on but something needed to be said… If anyone happens to stumble across this thread like I have and needs ANY assistance at all with Root, Recovery, Roms, Kernels, Mods, Tweaks, or whatever get ahold of me on xda-developers.com my handle is undeadking
