How to Root Android Phones & Tablets?

Rooting is the Android equivalent of jailbreaking, a means of unlocking the operating system so you can install unapproved (by Google) apps, update the OS, replace the firmware, overclock (or underclock) the processor, customize just about anything, and so on.

After rooting your Android phones & tablets, you'll have full access to the entire system and can run special types of apps that require root permissions. What's more, you also have the ability to use some Android recovery program to find back your lost or deleted data from Android phones and tablets. Before you actually try to root your device, make sure that you do some reading. The best place to find discussions about rooting, guides, and custom ROMs is definitely the XDA Developers Forum. Look for a thread on your specific device and you’re sure to find a method that has worked for other people. It's worth spending some time researching the right method for your device.

Now, let's us to see the detailed tutorial of rooting Android devices.

Steps on Rooting Android Devices on Windows/Mac Computer

Preparation

The actual rooting process itself should only take a single click. However, you have to do some necessary preparation works before:
1. Download and install the Java JDK and Android SDK on your computer before continuing. And Java must be installed before the Android SDK.
2. On the device, go into the Settings screen, tap Applications, tap Development, and enable the USB debugging check box.
3. Connect your Android device to PC with a USB cable. And you need to install a proper USB driver for your device.

When the above process is finished, you're required to restart your device. SuperOneClick automatically installs the SuperUser binary.
