Rooting the Intex Aqua HD is now much easier than ever, all thanks to Framaroot. The aforementioned device is now supported by Framaroot – one of the popular rooting methods for Android devices. Once you’ve rooted your Aqua HD, you should be able to play around with root-requiring apps, flash a custom recovery, or even change your current ROM.

If that all sounds good to you, here’s how you can root your device:

Those of you who already know Linux like most of the world doesn’t will be aware that the root user is the boss of the operating system. The root user is the same as the administrator is to the Windows operating system where there is now nothing you can choose to install and uninstall. If you have had experience using Windows accounts with lesser permissions, you would know how frustrating that can be and how restricted it is when trying to install apps on the computer. As you know, mobile devices come with apps too, and it is the apps from mobile that are the real driving force behind making the operation systems useful. Without apps, we wouldn’t be able to do hardly anything.¬†There are many things that root apps can do — from making the battery last way longer to making the hardware give out more power by overclocking the CPU. It’s all available with root access. For those who wants to learn more about what it possible to do with root access, you can read out post that goes into more detail about all the things that a rooted Android operating system is useful for and pick up some ideas.

Once you have root access to the device, then you start installing any of the apps that are available from the Google Play Store. While that sounds fun, it can be a great deal more fun when you know the names of the apps that you want to install instead of just rooting the device for the sake of when you stumble upon some of the root apps. We have an article that goes through what many of the best root apps for Android are so you can remember the names and then search for them. There are sometimes root apps that are not available from Google Play because Google have disallowed them or the app owner has decided to set up a website for them instead. Just about all of the others are accessible from a Google search.

One of the root applications that I enjoy installing is the Titanium Backup app. There is no other way to take a full backup of the data and the apps that are running on your device apart from using Titanium Backup unless you wanted to use ADB from a computer or have a custom recovery installed. Titanium Backup is not only perfect for backing up the app and all data, but it also gives you the chance of uninstalling any of the apps that are on your device. That includes any of the system apps that were not able to be uninstalled before you had root access.
