This is an easy process and will take hardly 10 mins to complete.

Proceed at your own risk. Rooting/Unrooting/Flashing a device can potentially brick it and make it unusable. Also rooting/flashing will void the warranty of the device. If any untoward event happens, thevortexcode.com or any of its members will not be held responsible. Proceeding forwards acknowledges that you agree with this.

BACKUP THE DATA FIRST

Make sure to exactly follow the steps mentioned to successfully root your device. Also do check out the video showing the complete tutorial.

Before Getting Started:

  • It is very important to backup your personal data of the device using appropriate tools. If anything untoward happens during the rooting/flashing process, the data will get lost and you can use the backed up data to restore it.
  • Make sure that your device has a minimum of 50% charge left in the battery before proceeding forward with the rooting/flashing process.
  • Deactivate or uninstall antivirus applications on the device.
