How To Root Your Android Without PC [2019]

how to root android without pc

With the penetration of smartphones in the market, all new smartphone brands are jostling to make their place in the market. However, with nothing extraordinary to introduce, these smartphones usually come up with better cameras, batteries, processors and the operating systems.

Breakdown of the available OS

Keeping hardware aside, let’s focus on how these operating systems differ and give control to the end-user. With iOS and Android being the major competitors in terms of operating systems.

It is pertinent to mention the likes of Fire OS by Amazon, Windows OS by Microsoft, and Blackberry OS. However, it is iOS and Android that grab the lions share when it comes to usage of the OS—with 69.8% Android’s share and 28% iOS’ share.

Android Vs iOS

Comparing the iOS with Android is like comparing apple with oranges. The two differ not only in terms of the back-end development but also in terms of their interface, structure, architecture as well as privileges. Where iOS gives only a limited control to the users, android offers much more control in the users’ hands. Customization, themes, controlling sound, screen or literally anything else, it’s the android that always emerges the victor In terms of giving control to its users.

Why Root Android?

However, it is not always the scenario that you get all you want from the android—be it custom ROMS, messing with the data files or modifying the back-end, you’ll need something that can tweak the android to unleash its full control into your hands. This little something is what we call “Root” for android and “Jailbreak” for iOS. Let’s not get distracted and delve deeper into the android OS.

What is Root or Rooting?

The term “Root” is a little techie for some people so let’s explain it further. To root your android means to have the privileges and access to the Root directory of the Android OS which is based entirely on the Linux OS. We all know there’s no powerful OS than the Linux, thus getting the access to the root directory means you have all the control right into your hands. It’s like having the power and authority to run this universe. However, powers misused can backfire in the worst possible manner on can think of i.e you may get your phone bricked.

How to Root Your Android?

When it comes to rooting, the first question we hear all around us goes like this: hey do you know to root your android? Or when we try Googling it, only after the first to works—how to—Google provides you with a drop-down with the top one being how to root android with computer and the second one being how to root android. Although, the internet is ripe with how to root your android guides, let’s not keep harping on that and choose the easier and the other way around.

Before we head towards the process of rooting your android without computers or otherwise known as one-click root, please note that rooting your android will automatically void your warranty and there are possible instances when android devices get bricked during the rooting process. In case any mishaps, Techscopy will not be possible.

Now if you are already a techie or a geek, you would ignore the warning and move on to root your android without computer—techies and geek never chicken out.
