If you have one then today I will tell you how to root yours. This article will guide you through the root process using Odin software, do not skip any step or part of this article or you will end up with a bricked device.
Android rooting comes in handy in may situations, including when you want to customize your device or want to install any custom ROM or kernels. Some apps also need root access of your device’s internal system so it can work properly. Rooting your device is not recommended by Google or your device’s manufacturer. Rooting your device also voids your device’s warranty so root your device at your own risk.
Make sure you make a backup of all of your important data stored in the device to be confident that if anything wrong happens to your device then your data is secure. Make a backup of your media files on your PC or any other external drive.
What you need for this root process is a Windows-based PC with antivirus disabled and a USB cable to connect your phone to your PC.
Also make sure to enable USB debugging mode on your device by going to settings > Developer Options > enable USB debugging. Before going to the steps charge your device to at least 50% battery.
