Rooting an Android is equivalent to jailbreak of an iDevice. It is a means of unlocking the operation system and authorize it more permissions. For instance, if connection fails when trying to recover deleted data from mobile phones (opens new window) with FonePaw Android Data Recovery (opens new window), you can fix this issue by rooting phones. Certainly, it is not the sole advantage of rooting. Read on and know more rooting. By the way, turn on your phone and try to root it with the methods we recommend.


Verizon and AT&T have locked the Bootloader in Android, leading to difficulties in rooting Android and possibilities of bricking the device. So the solution we offer below may not works on Android manufactured by Verizon or AT&T and it is better not root your phone with this method.

Prompts before Rooting Android Phones

  1. Rooting will void the warranty of your Android phone. If your Android phone is still under a long-period warranty, consider carefully before you act.

  2. If you follow the rooting steps strictly, your Android phone won't be bricked. So don't worry.

  3. Safe as rooting usually is, I cannot guarantee that it is 100% safe due to some unexpected mistakes and accidents. Situations listed can lead to a failure and even danger to your Android phone. For example, disconnection between Android device and the computer during rooting, Android phone getting powered off due to low battery, and mistaken operations.So I strongly recommend you to backup your Android files, photos and contacts for example, before conducting the rooting.

  4. You can use FonePaw Android Data Recovery to recover deleted lost files from a rooted Android. Additionally, you are allowed to remove applications preinstalled in your Android phone by carriers and manufacturers, relieve your phone memory, and so on.
