KingoRoot for Android is the most convenient and powerful apk root tool. Root any Android device and version without connecting to PC.
This brings me nicely on to the next major benefit of rooting Android, improved backup and restore options. Yes, the cloud can back up some of your settings and app downloads, but that is not really a true backup; it’s just a list of things for the phone to download and change. Want to keep everything the way it was? You will need to root.
As already mentioned, Titanium Backup is one of the most popular backup apps used by rooters, and this, or a similar app, is essential if you’re going to start tinkering around with Android software. But as well as acting as a safety net in case you uninstall something important, Titanium Backup can also be used to backup your user data… any and all user data.
Even better, once rooted you can create complete backups of your entire handset using the TWRP option, providing you with extra protecting in case of a major malfunction. Recovery can only be accessed before booting into Android, but it provides additional backup options in case, for whatever reason, Android fails to boot properly or experiences a crippling error. This makes TWRP Recovery an essential tool for those looking to install custom versions of Android.
Before jumping into the rooting process, please make sure you get everything right beforehand.
