Android is an awesome operating system known for its open source attribute. It offers hundreds of devices to choose from one of the cheapest to the costliest ones. This most popular platform stunning on its own becomes more powerful when you gain root access on it. If you have an unrooted device, you have been experiencing just the half of what it can offer. Rooting unleashes the true capability of an Android device. By using root apps, custom mods, ROMs, frameworks and kernels, you can enjoy the best possible system optimization, performance tweaks and graphic customization.

There was a time when it was not possible to root an Android phone or tablet without using a computer. We had to use different tools for rooting different devices. Moreover, most root-toolkits were made for Windows only. As a result of phenomenal custom development activities, more refined, safer and easier-to-use methods have been evolving now. Cross-OEM tools like FramaRoot and TowelRoot does not even need a computer. You just have to install an Apk on your device and tap a button in the app to get it rooted.

Now we have another amazing root-tool in the form of an Apk. Famous developer jcase has collaborated with some other renowned names like IOMonster, Autoprime, PlayfulGod and the result is an universal root exploit for LG devices.  The root exploit is called Stump Root and works on almost all LG phones and tablets released since 2012 till data.
