With almost 87% market share in the Smartphone industry, Android with no doubt is ‘the most popular Smartphone OS in the world’.
How did it got so popular?
Since Android is Open-Source and was given away for FREE by Google to other device manufacturers, this led to its huge popularity saving device manufacturers the time to develop its own specialized OS.
One thing that has been the USP of Android devices is the ability to root them and unleash its hidden potential.
Right now I’ll show you how to root Android Phone without PC and that too in one tap.
If you have no idea what rooting is,then check its detailed definition here, in simple terms rooting means accessing the core files of your Smartphone and modifying them to get more performance out of it.
In layman terms, it’s like modifying a Ford Model T-Bucket and giving it the power of Ferrari 458 Italia.
Coming to rooting Android device is always a scary task because there is a fear of getting you phone bricked (it’s a technological term of saying your phone R.I.P.)
I still remember rooting my Micromax Canvas A110 using USB cable, downloading phone’s drivers, software to root and performing certain actions at the right time or else the rooting might fail or the phone might get bricked.
But no worries as we have this small app call Framaroot.apk which will root your Android Phone without PC, just in one tap.
