How To Root Android Without Computer Like A Seasoned Techie

Root Android without a Computer

Do you want to gain root access on your Android device so that you can install custom ROMs and mods? Are you tired of the same old complicated methods for rooting Android devices?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then continue reading to find out how you can root Android without a computer.

Theoretically, any Android phone can be rooted. However, with a 2015 estimate by OpenSignal coming in at 24,000 different types of Android models, it can be difficult to account for each and every type of phone.

Newer phones come with better security which can make it difficult for developers or hackers to find a rooting exploit. In such a case, we recommend you find a rooting method specific to that phone. If you own a phone that is a little more obscure, developers and/or hackers may not have the same incentive that they do for rooting more popular phones.

Must Read: Everything You Need to Know Before Rooting Your Android Phone

Before We Begin:

  • Verify your device model number.
  • Realize that rooting voids your warranty. Use these methods at your own risk.
  • Perform a full backup.
  • From Security, in the Settings menu, enable Unknown Sources so you download and install apps outside of those in the Google-Play store.
  • Charge your phone.
  • Enable USB debugging.

Time: 5-10 Minutes

Method 1: Framaroot

Framaroot is possibly the most popular and effective app for rooting your Android device directly without using a PC. The app is basically a universal one click rooting method for Android devices. Hundreds of Android devices have been tested successfully from some of the most popular manufacturers so it is likely that the app will work with most Android devices.

Not only does the app let you root your Android device in just a couple of seconds, but you can also unroot your device if you change your mind in the future. 

  1. Download Framaroot APK

    Download the Framaroot app on your Android device. Unfortunately, the app is not available on the Google Play Store due to Google’s terms and conditions.



  2. Find File

    Open any file manager on your Android device. Navigate to the directory where you saved the apk file earlier and tap on it. If you don’t have any file manager installed, you can get one like ES File Explorer from the Google Play Store. ES File Explorer can be downloaded using the Google Play button below.

    Download: ES File Explorer

    Google Play download button

  3. Install App

    Tap the Install button to get the Framaroot app on your phone.



  4. Open Framaroot

    Once the installation is complete, tap on Open button to launch the app

  5. Install SuperSU

    Select Install SuperSU from the dropdown menu at the top.



  6. Choose Exploit

    Tap on the Lord of the Rings character that uses the exploit for your phone. View this link to find out which exploit works on your device. You can also try out different options to see what works with your device. If you get a Failed popup message, select another option.



  7. Success!

    After selecting the option that supports your device, you’ll get a Success message in the Exploit result popup. That’s it! Your device is successfully rooted. Make sure that you reboot your device after getting the Success message.

Method 2: Kingroot

You will need to maintain a stable Internet connection throughout the process. KingRoot is Chinese, although a lot of English is used in the APK version. Unless you want the exclusively Chinese version, we recommend using the APK (Android) version that can be downloaded directly to your phone.

  1. Download Kingroot

    Download and install the Kingroot APK on your Android. This app checks whether you already have root access.





  2. Launch KingRoot

    Open your new KingRoot app. You can find it in your app drawer once installation is complete.

  3. Check for Button

    Ensure that you can see the Start Root button at the bottom of the display. This tells you that your device is supported.



  4. Start Rooting

    Tap the Start button to begin rooting. Rooting may take a few moments. Once rooting is complete, you should see Success! on your screen and the KingRoot icon on your phone.

  5. Restart your Device

    If your device is not compatible with the rooting software, you will instead be prompted to try the desktop version of KingRoot, which might work better for you. There is, however, no English user interface on the desktop version at this time.

Time: 2-5 Minutes

Method 3: Universal Androot

Universal Android Root is another app available for Android devices that lets you root your device without using a PC. Unlike Methods 1 and 2, the app is not that popular and it might not work with some Android devices. That being said, if Methods 1 and 2 didn’t work with your Android device, perhaps this one will.

As the app is old, it should work with most older Android devices and firmware versions. Like Framaroot, this app also features a built-in option for unrooting your device. The app can root supported Android devices in five to seven second.

  1. Install Universal Android Root

    Download the Universal Androot app on your Android device. You can get the apk file here. If you have difficulty find the file afterward, try using a file manager. B1 Archiver file manager can be downloaded using the link below.

    B1 Archiver Zip Rar Unzip

    Google Play download button

  2. Open App

    Once the installation is complete, tap on Open button to launch the app.

  3. Install SuperSU

    Select Install SuperSU from the dropdown menu at the top.


  4. Specify Firmware

    Select your Android firmware version by tapping on the dropdown menu.



  5. Temporary Root

    If you want to root your Android device temporarily to check the functionality, make sure that the Root temporary option is checked. This way, your device will be unrooted after you reboot it.



  6. Root

    Tap on the Root button. The rooting process should now start and it will take a couple of seconds.



  7. Reboot

    Once the process is complete, you’ll get a Your device is rooted message. That’s it! You have successfully rooted your Android device. Make sure that you reboot your device after the rooting process.

Time: 5 Minutes

Method 4: iRoot

This rooting method works within the range of Android 4.0 to 4.4. It offers an option for downloading an APK directly to your phone. It boasts of a high success rate.

  1. Download iRoot

    This is another root supported by Chinese developers. There is certainly enough English to get by, however.  iRoot should recognize your device and the Root button should appear.





  2. Tap Root Now

    The software will complete the  process for you.



  3. Reboot Your Device

    It will probably restart automatically, but in case it needs a little help, manually reboot the phone.

Time: 5-10 Minutes

Method 5: WeakSauce (AKA Easy Rooting Toolkit)

WeakSauce is another app coming from the XDA forums that lets you root your Android device directly without using your PC. Framaroot and Universal Androot are better, more reliable, and effective universal rooting methods for various Android devices. WeakSauce, on the other hand, will only work with HTC devices and this is possibly the best option if you want to root HTC One M8.

While the app was specifically designed for HTC One M8, it should work on several other HTC devices as the app was successfully tested on the older HTC One M7. WeakSauce doesn’t root your device permanently, as the root access is lost once you switch off your device. The app automatically roots your device again after about 30 seconds of a reboot. The app doesn’t come with an unroot option, but you can easily disable automatic rooting by uninstalling the app.

  1. Download and install WeakSauce

    Download and install WeakSauce on your Android device.


  2. Find File

    Open any file manager on your Android device. Navigate to the directory where you saved the APK file earlier and tap on it. If you don’t have any file manager installed, you can get one like Amaze File Manager from the Google Play Store. Amaze File Manager can be downloaded using the Google Play button below.

    Amaze File Manager

    Google Play download button

  3. Launch Weaksauce

    Open your new Weaksauce app.



  4. Start Rooting

    After launching the app, you’ll get a Disclaimer popup with the terms and conditions. Tap on Yes to start the rooting process, then wait for approximately 60 seconds before exiting the app.

  5. Download SuperSU

    Download and install SuperSU on your Android device from the Google Play Store. You can download it through the Google Play button below. That’s it! You have successfully rooted your HTC Android device.


    Google Play download button

  6. After Reboot

    If you reboot your device, wait for about 30 seconds and your device will be rooted again automatically.

Is the root still not working on your phone? See if you can find a JOA rooting article specific to your phone. Rooting is a hack of sorts, and it is based on a vulnerability within the operating system. Sometimes, as is the case with rooting method Towelroot, for example, these opportunities within the code get patched by the manufacturer.

The manufacturer is more interested in security than the freedom that rooting affords. This can be understandable, given the damage a third-party with malicious intent can wreak on your phone with root access. But we believe that you should have that kind of freedom when it comes to your phone.

    You are all retarded. I mean come on it says how to root without PC and what does step 3 say. You guessed it. Connect your android device to PC using USB cable. Are you fucking retarded? I mean please have the decency to not lie. Come on that’s fucking degrading. Please let me know when you have some truthful people.

    • Sam on

      Hey John,

      Thanks for stopping by. Seriously, gosh, you have to slow down and read the article fully. Step 2 in Method 1 that mentions using PC is an optional step incase you prefer to download the APK via PC. Everyone in the android world know that you can skip this and download the APK directly on your mobile as per Step 1. We have tweaked the wordings now so it reflects more directly. Hope that makes you warm and fuzzy inside 🙂

      We are not retarded, nor, liars; We are normal human beings trying to give you the best information in the best possible way. The writer has indeed put a lot of effort into this and I hope you would be able to appreciate that. Always open to hear constructive criticism, feel free to shout back!


    • Steve on

      To JOSH (8/28/2014) are you a child? Have you read what you wrote? I think your the one mentally challenged. The “R” word is NOT tolerated in public anymore, it is a HATE word. The flagrant use of the”F” word will not get the desired attention of others, it just pisses them off. Before spouting off with your simple minded rants, please run them by somebody that has common decency and a brain. And JOSH, please let us know when you grow up!!

      @YASIR thanks for the info. I didn’t even know about WeakSauce!! Also ignore the small minded people.

      • pw on

        make your own 0day for android and then you can make a vagrant attempt at criticism in regards to somones grammer, who in my opinion isn’t too far from the truth.. – pw

    • Julian on

      Dude the more you text the dumber we get, please stop with the derogatory statements and fascist comments. It doesn’t help you to sound like a retard, or to be politically correct (mentally challenged). Maybe if you slowed your roll you might actually understand something (highly doubtful) worst case scenario you successfully achieve your goal without being belligerent. Best case you hard brick your phone so the lovely person who wrote this very helpful article, won’t have to hear your potty mouth. Have a blessed day MORON.

      Hi Ruan, can you let us know at which step your handset is failing. Without deeper understanding of the issue, we can’t provide a solution.

  2. varun on

    hi..i am using samsung galaxy y ,android version2.3.6 …as soon as i install framaroot..i am getting a weird message”check vulnerabilities- ur device seems not vulnerablr to exploit included in framaroot” i dont kno what to do now..can u plz help me out?

    • Sam on

      Sorry to hear that. Sometimes these methods don’t go well with all phones / network as there are too many influencing factors. Let us know if you have found any alternate methods.

  3. aman on

    nothing works on my mtk phone adcom thunder a400. i’ve tried everything. Can u please tell me how should i root.
    P.S: mtk droid was also not able to root it

    • Sam on

      In an ideal world, yes, it should work. But there are too many factors that could affect this. Please try and let us know if it works.

  4. sushanth on

    None of the methods worked on my Moto G… On framaroot, i just got the option of one exploit.. And it failed.

    • Sam on

      Sushanth, unfortunately methods mentioned in this post will not work with all phones. You will have to try mobile specific rooting methods (which would use a pc)

      • Sushanth on

        That’s really sad, since it was THE most easiest way to root, and it fails. I don’t want to use the other methods mainly because I’d be risking my data

        • Sam on

          You can always de-risk this by backing up your data. You can backup literally anything to cloud from your mobile. Search in our blog and you will find a lot of info on how to backup things.

    All the methods doesn’t work on my Tecno P3 android version 2.3.5. Why?

  8. Alex on

    Hey guys, just wanted to say thank you for the post! I have wanted to root one of my phones for a long time but I don’t have a computer right now and since I bought the HTC one m8 I’ve really wanted to pump it out. And thanks to this post I can.

    Thanks again,

  9. Alex on

    Shoot.. couldn’t get any of the methods to work on my AT&T HTC one m8. Any ideas? Even weaksauce failed

    • Sam on

      Sorry to hear this, Alex. No any more ideas. As mentioned in this post this method will not work for all phones with all OS version 🙁

    • Dani on

      We do not have ZTE source and we are unable to test it for now. But this blog post is written to root all android phones without computer.

  10. protocol on

    this shit never works,tried on different devices.y’all r LIARS

    • Sam on

      As said in the article, please read this article with pinch of salt. These methods are not designed to work in all devices especially new devices come with advanced security features.

  11. Jerome on

    Does it matter if I install Framaroot on the internal memory or SD card? When installing on the internal memory it says “Unfortunately Framaroot has stopped” when I try to launch it, when installing it on the SD card it launches, but gives Error #9, whichever exploit I try.

    My Lenovo virus scanner seems to say Androot contains a virus, however I can not be comletely sure as it is in Chinese and I can not read it. It seems to uninstall it automatically so I’d rather not push it.


    • Sam on

      Jerome, it should not matter where you install Framaroot. If you are getting an error, then your device is not supported. About the antivirus, I don’t really trust any antivirus apps as they’re useless to me. They’ll give you a warning for any app that tries to edit your phone’s settings.

  12. aaron gillen on

    Does framaroot work on the Samsung Galaxy Legend (a prepaid Verizon)? I just want to know before I try, as I have heard that a mistake rooting can ruin a phone.

  13. rooted sandwitch on

    Can i root a lg optimus f3 by virgin mobile or a galaxy s2 from T-mobile

    • Dani on

      If you follow the instructions correctly it will not ruin your phone. But the methods instructed will not work in all mobiles. So there is always an element of risk!

  14. rooted sandwitch on

    ok i so tried rooting my f3 from virgin mobile and i use saferoot and it didn’t load then i use framaroot and it load and closes any ideas

    How do you unroot ? I really want to do this but if i don’t like it, I want to unroot my device.

  17. Kurung on

    Doesnt work on my LG Optimus L3 E400 i tried all methods Q.Q .. There’s still Other methods ?? i want to root my phone without PC is it True ?

  18. cap on

    I’m beginning to think this is actually a pagr linking to virus (especially since the OFFICIAL weaksauce actually worked – and yes, I downloaded the same apk release as the one you provided a link to). I’ve tried the methods on three devices – a note 4, galaxy S5, and an HTC One m8. None of the steps worked (with your file). They all failed at the point of choosing a”root process”. Yes, after choosing to “unroot” with ANY of the options, in ANY app, they still failed to root any of my devices.

    The OFFICIAL root apk’s for the S5 and M8 do work, but I’ve never seen so many people claim that they didn’t work – in one place – ever. Not to mention, you’ve left out some MAJOR steps of each process.

    Just one more reason why it makes me think you are providing some sort of virus in these fake packages you are linking your readers to.

  19. Aries on

    Yes the Universal Androot contains virus that makes my computer refuses to download it, or is this probably what’s happening if downloading a root file, as on other websites saying that to download the file you need to firstly unable your anti-virus software installed on your computer, etc.

  20. Hakeem on

    Will it work for Huawei Y-520. I’ve tried some rooting apps and it didnt work

    Does anyone know of a way/guide to root 4.4.4 KitKat droid turbo? Either computer or device will do. I’ve looked for about 2 days and cant fine anything that will work

  22. Snd on

    How do i root my mi-3?i tried king root and all,i just want xmod games working,thanks

  23. Jb on

    Nice guide. Some people appreciate and some would not but in my case I appreciate the guide. It led me to peace knowing that android 4.4.2 and higher has higher invulnerability than the other previous versions and it makes me feel good knowing that it’s a challege finding a app without pc to root. I guess KingRoot is the only app in my case that works but the only problem is kingroot is just a temporary root to your device and instead of making itself (kingroot) part of the system, itself just operate using your sd card. Going back, nice guide. To other users I suggest KingRoot. Your phone won’t be harmed.

  24. Stephen GEOGHEGAN on

    Tried framaroot, got options of Aragorm and Gandalf, both not working, androot failed as well, any other easy ways without computer for moto X, xt1052, 1st gen, thnx.

    I used Framaroot and it worked like magic on my Blackview JK809

  26. Myles on

    I have a ZTE ZMAX and methods one and two didn’t work for me. Do you know why?

    • Samie on

      Hi Myles,

      The reasons why method one and two didn’t work for your ZTE Zmax device is difficult to say. However, as the article states, some methods may not work with new devices, your device is a relatively new one, with enhanced security. This may be the reason why these methods did not work.

    I have tried all of those programs that you all have listed for my 2.3.6, and not one of them has succeeded in rooting it. That also goes for all the PC programs that I’ve tried. All any of them do is fill up the phone memory.

    • Judy on

      Hi There,
      Rooting your phone can be risky and the risk depends on which phone and/or method you use for the process. For example, if you use the wrong kernel you will brick your phone. Data loss is also a risk, that is why you are urged to create a backup of important files just in case something goes wrong. Hope this helps.

    • Judy on

      Hi Scott,
      I don´t see why not. Thanks for your comment and please let us if there is anything else we can help you with.

    I managed to unlock my htc desire 510.. The boatloader.. I downloaded and ran kingroot.. It actually said my device is rooted.. When I would go in super su.. It said I had to update binary.. When I tried to do that.. My phone would reboot and I wouldn’t be rooted anymore… Ever hear of that.. I wonder if one of the options on here would work better

    I m using Samsung galaxy Y duos (S6102) and running on android 2.3 Gingerbread and I wanted to root my device to install jelly bean in it . How would i do it plz tell me…

    • Judy on

      Hi There,
      It is possible to add a more modern Android version to your phone, but the specs for you phone will not handle the new version very well since the ram is too low for anything.

    • Judy on

      Hi DeVaughn,
      Let me contact the author for you to get an answer for your question. Will get back to you. Thanks for your comment.

  35. Tony on

    i am using method 3 and the app crashes right as i click yes, would love to know why that is

    • Judy on

      Hi Tony,
      Doing some research as to why of the crashing I found a statement from the Developer of the app saying that if the app crashes it is because it isn´t compatible at this time and that he has no interest in adding compatibility. That it will work on some phone´s and will not on others, that it is about giving it a try and see if it works. Thanks for commenting.

  36. Keith on

    • Judy on

      Hi Michael,
      How unfortunate to hear that these apps didn´t work. I have read that KingRoot has worked for some HTC, but that app has gotten its good and bad reviews. Just wanted to let you know, just in case you wanted to try it out at your own risk. Please let me know what happens and thanks for commenting.

      Let me do some research and see what methods have worked for others with the same phone as yours. I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks for reading.

  39. Voland on

    Hey guys, thanks for your work and info.

    I guess a little early, but maybe anyone has some ideas how to root Marshall London Lollipop 5.0.2. ? Want to try, but I’m a little scared that I could make it unusable. Is that possible with these methods?


    • Judy on

      Hi Voland,
      With rooting, there is always a possibility something could go wrong, even if you are suing a method that is safer than others. I know that Rescue Root will not brick your phone even if it is not compatible since it has been specifically designed to not damage or brick Android devices. If your device is a model which cannot safely be rooted, their software will automatically detect and prevent this. Hope this helps.

  40. Ella on

    Thanks for the info.
    I’ve rooted my phone for about a year now, but just few days ago my whatsapp stopped working. I updated the app but it still wasn’t working, so I had to delete and reinstall it again, but my phone number could not be verified, when I tried to find out why, I got a reply that whatsapp doesn’t support rooted devices.
    I’m thinking of unrooting the phone using my super su app, but then I’ll so much like to root it back.
    The issue is that I don’t know how to root the phone myself, and the person that helped me initially has travelled.
    I’m using a Nokia XL, I would like to know if the steps above will help me root my phone back if I unroot it to install my whatsapp. Thanks.

    • Judy on

      Hi Ella,
      The quick answer is … probably. It really depends on the phone and the process it required to gain root access. A lot of times “unrooting” is simply uninstalling SuperSu, which leaves your phone in a modified state but does not give the user access to root (or more correctly, the root manager that allows apps to elevate privileges.) Sometimes the only way to truly unroot is to flash the factory firmware, especially if you are trying to apply an OTA update. See if you can wait until your friend who rooted your phone comes back. =-)

      • Ela on

        Thanks Joa
        Please one more thing, what will happen to my phone if I uproot.
        All those applications I enjoyed as a result of rooting, will they be gone afterwards or what?
        Will there be any damage to the phone?

        • Judy on

          Hi Ella,
          Welcome back! You can ask as many questions as you want, we are here to help you. Unfortunately the apps you used when the phone was rooted will no longer work since they are made especially for rooted phone´s. =-( Do you mean if there will be damage to your phone if you unroot?

  41. Joy on

    I have an LG Volt Android 4.4.2 on Boost Mobile. Never tried rooting a phone before. If you use a computer, does your computer have to be online? I have a windows PC that I could use if it doesn’t have to go online. My phone can go online though. Also, I don’t have an SD card. You don’t have to have one, right?

    • Judy on

      Hi Joy,
      You will need to be online to download and install appropriate USB drivers on your computer. You should be able to do it without an SD card,provided you use a recovery that allows flashing from internal storage. Thanks for commenting!

The androot one only works for androids upto 2.2 so no luck there as my s3 is 4.3 and framaroot unlike I’ve heard and seen showed only one exploit option which didn’t work and was asking me to try another exploits. But as you know , they weren’t there. In a fix ! Help?

    Are there any root apps that has exploited MM yet? Lost root zipping the firmware I can’t use the computer to root because my charge port isn’t syncing with computer at all. It can charge but my computer doesn’t recognize it. I’m on HTC M8 Sprint

    Hey! If I root my HTC One M8, will the Sense UI get uninstalled? I kinda like the Sense UI and dont want to lose it.
    Kindly help!
    Thanks in advance!

      Hi Pratham,
      Yes, you can keep your sense UI if you root your phone. Some ROMs do remove, or try, but they explicitly say so. Thanks for commenting. =-)

    I have LG US810 transpyre verizon may the app work on it when rooting

    Hey I am on HTC desire 510 didn’t work but I understand seeing how I cannot even transfer files pics video music ect to or from external sd on this phone. I wouldn’t expect your awesome lil app to do much software freakary with such a small download I just wanted to say I did use this app and a few others to root a few other previous lg phones I had and unfortunately soft bricked when installing roms. So for everyone saying it doesn’t work you are wrong it only doesn’t work on your phones. Use a pc and Odin go to a library or friends house or whatever. Seeing how you are so easily frustrated you may not have friends but the library should still let you in.

      To transfer your files to your SD card, you can go to Apps>File manager>if it’s faulted to SD card tap on that and select phone storage. Select the files you want to transfer, for example, you can tap and hold on a folder and select cut. Now you should be asked where you want to move your files, tap on the upside down pyramid beside phone storage and select SD card and choose where you want to paste. Hope this helps.

    most people don’t enable “USB Debugging” .that’s why it doesn’t work for them.

    I got a zte max duo z963vl I’m trying to find a one button root don’t have access to PC I’ve tried most of them anyone have any advice?could use some help plz

      If you’ve tried most of what’s available, you might need to look on the XDA Forum. They are usually pretty active with rooting. If it’s not possible, they will say so.

      There is absolutely no access to a computer to root it?
