There are plenty of normal apps available in the Google Play Store these days that could make you think there isn’t much point getting root access to your HKC Q79 3G device any more. However, that thinking would be incorrect. Still to this day, some of the better applications out there for your HKX handset are going to require root access. The reason for that is simple: often the apps that do the most things require access to the root file system and logically that makes sense.

One app that is available for rooted users is the Children Tracker application. The Children Tracker app is amazing if you are a parent — albeit an overprotective one. While your kids will hate us for telling you this, the Children Tracker app is like having your own helicopter in the sky. And guess what? You must root the HKC Q79 3G before you can use the app.
