Have you just owned an Android? It’s absolutely amazing, ain’t it? Yet, it does have limitations. But here’s some good news, Android being based on Linux can have its limitations removed by the process called “Rooting”.

Users like me, who root their phone on the very moment it arrives, are always keen to go custom as fast as possible. There are several methods out their to root an Android device which includes rooting via flashing the Superuser binaries, pushing them via adb/fastboot using command-line or terminal and foremost the easiest process by using a toolkit. Although most of the devices have their specific toolkits to perform this action, but certainly are limited to the same device and requires access to a PC. And so here, Framaroot steps in which brings an all-in-one root tool for rooting quite a list of devices by just one-click through your device itself, without the use of any PC.

Framaroot is a simple Android Rooting application developed by alephzain (Donate), which installs as a normal apk file and pushes the superuser and su binaries to your device, hence rooting it. The application is already compatible with with a list of devices from various manufacturers and is capable to root an Android device running version 2.x to 4.x. The list is still expanding as users seem to be keen enough to try this on their devices. Below is the list of device which are confirmed to be working with Framaroot.

  10. hello sir,
    i have a Huawei U8850….when i run this app in my phone it displays GANDALF EXPLOIT only and when i tap the GANDALF EXPLOIT it displays (Error #5).
    i’ve attached screenshots…please tell me how to root my phone ??

  11. I use samsung galaxy win. I’ve tried using version 1.6.1 and it didn’t work. with my mobile, what is the most appropriate?

  12. what do i used for a samsung galaxy express i437?
    I have been looking everywhere to find out how to root

  13. Do not forget to backup your current ROM in TWRP and then proceed. If you feel any issue, you can restore the old ROM back. Therefore, there is no need to be nervous (I know it’s natural for a new user). I’ll always be here to for any assistance.

    Just make sure to read instruction a couple of time and follow then carefully. Good luck! 🙂

  14. Definitely would love to try this out! What kind of bugs can I expect from this. Favorite descriptions that I’m seeing is the Speed and Smoothness. I’m a sucker for those qualities.

  15. Crap, this might take me a while to understand. Lol. But I’ll definitely study this.

    What about updating to the latest Firmware like 4.3? Should I need a Rom for that as well?

  16. No, rooting is not enough for installing ROM, it’s rather a license. LOL. To install a custom ROM, you will also have to install a custom recovery. Download the Goo Manager app and install TWRP recovery using it, and then you’ll be able to install any ROM.

    You will find the link to app here: http://www.droidviews.com/best-apps-for-rooted-android-devices/

    See the app screenshots to know how to install TWRP (open recovery). Also, since you are new to such things, read this too: http://www.droidviews.com/things-to-do-before-and-after-installing-a-rom-troubleshooter/

    Hope it helps. 🙂

  17. Thanks for the Quick Reply, appreciate it. It’s rooted. I was a bit nervous since this is my first time lol.

    Does that mean I can install the infamous cyanogen mod? Lol.

  18. Nevermind, I selected Aragorn and it restarted. Now, how do I tell if it was rooted? It just started up normally. Lol.

  19. I have a Sprint Galaxy Note 2 and it says select an Exploit? Which do I choose? Aragorn?

  20. Your device is listed because users reported that root is working. Note that framaroot is not a permanent rooting application and it might fail to to its job if you have device with a firmware that has been patched the exploit the tool works on.

  21. Does it work on the AT&T Galaxy Express? I tried it and both exploits that are listed say they have failed.

  22. Hi, it has not been tested on T-Mobile S4 in my knowledge, but you can try it. It’s just a simple apk files that works on most devices. Testes on GT-I9500 and I9505 (Qualcomm chip like yours).
