DISCLAIMER : Best Android Blog would not be held responsible/liable for any damages that takes place to your device while following these procedure. So, do everything at your own risk.

How to Install ADB:

  • To root your device first you need to set up Linux machine if you don’t have that already.
  • After that, set your phone up so that USB debug mode is turned on [settings>developer options]. Just make sure your phone isn’t plugged into the USB or it won’t let you to change the setting.
  • Now plug your phone into to the (Linux) computer with the USB. Next you will need to set the USB computer connection type to Media Device(MTP).
  • In order for the computer to communicate with the phone we will need to install Android Debug Bridge (ADB) and create a couple of files.
  • These files will basically trick the computer into thinking it has actual drivers for the phone.
  • Open a terminal window, and enter the following (this will install ADB):

 

sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb

 

  • So, once you have done then enter the following:

 

sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/70-android.rules

 

  • Gedit will open at this point copy the the following into it and then click save and close the window.

 

SUBSYSTEMS==”usb”, ATTRS{idVendor}==”10a9:6055″, MODE=”0666″

 

  • In the terminal window enter this (yeah I know it looks the same just go with it)

sudo gedit /lib/udev/rules.d/70-android.rules

  • After the window opens paste the same line of code into the file that you did in the previous files, save and close.
  • Test your connection by issuing the following command in the terminal window:

adb devices

  • After that you should see something similar to:

 

OSCAR01111112010204 device

 

  • Your adb is now recognizing your phone and you can now move on to the next step if you are not getting this don’t even bother moving to the next step it won’t work. Suppose, if you don’t see this then, check your settings and try again.

How to root:

  • Now, you are actually ready to root your phone. For that first you need to download the modified Bin4ry script from here.
  • So, once you have downloaded you need to extract the same. If you don’t know how to extract that, then know that from here. For that you need to open the file manager (to go into file manager you need to click the home folder icon) and going to download.
  • There find the file called Root_Flex.zip. Right click on it and select EXTRACT HERE. After its done extracting you should see a directory called Root_Flex.
  • In a terminal windows enter the following:

cd Downloads/Root_Flex

  • So, once you entered that your prompt should now look something which we have given below.

user@machine_name~/Downloads/Root_Flex$

  • From here just enter the command:

bash RunMeFlex.sh

  • So, after you entered this command, the menu will asking you which way you want to try to root. Type 1 and press enter. It will give you 3 errors, ignore them. It should copy a bunch of files and ask you to press restore on your phone, so do it.
  • It would again ask you to press enter, do it. So, that your phone will reboot. It should be waiting on you to press enter again don’t press enter until the phone is completely rebooted and for good measure give it an extra few seconds.
  • The script should finish and the phone will reboot again. But this time you should see a little box with an update appear on the phone.

At this point you should be rooted. If not yet then retry the script.
