How to root an Android device

There are different methods to root an Android device.

Method 1: use app

There are Android apps that allow to root your device just by installing, running it and swapping a slider.

Cross your fingers so any of these apps support your device, as it is the easiest way.

Some popular apps are Towelroot or Kingroot.
