Easiest way to root your Android device

If you are an Android user, you might have heard the term rooting a couple of times and probably wondered what it all means. Upon further investigation or simply put - a Google search, you find out that rooting your Android device gives you more control over it thus enabling you to do things you previously couldn't.

Now you are all hyped up and clicking away at numerous websites which present varying options on how to root your specific device. With all the information you go into overload mode and it becomes increasingly difficult to proceed with rooting your device as you can't quite put a finger on which method will work best. Then comes the idea of glimpsing through the comment section to see what other users have to say after they attempted to root their devices with the method at hand. A not so familiar term pops up..BRICKED, yes some unfortunate soul actually messed up the steps and rendered their device useless; In most cases this is however reversible.
The thought of it happening to your expensive Android device that you probably had to save for months to purchase is enough to deter you away for good. This probably happens to people with little to no experience with the Android OS and the less adventurous.
Rooting doesn't have to be that scary anymore thanks to Kingo, a one click rooting application that saves you all the worry of something going wrong and best of all it's absolutely free!

How to root with Kingo
First of all be sure to check the compatibility list before you proceed, to see if your device is supported. Your device might not be on the list but it wouldn't hurt to still give it a shot.
Step one: Download and install Kingo Android Root.

Step two: Enable USB debugging mode on your phone. If it's running Android 4.0 or 4.1, tap Settings, Developer Options, then tick the box for "USB debugging." (You may need to switch "Developer options" to On before you can do so.) On Android 4.2, tap Settings, About Phone, Developer Options, and then tick USB debugging." Then tap OK to approve the setting change.
On Android 4.3 and later (and some versions of 4.2), tap Settings, About Phone, then scroll down to Build Number. Tap it seven times, at which point you should see the message, "You are now a developer!"
Step three: Run Android Root on your PC, then connect your phone via its USB sync cable. After a moment, the application should detect and connect to your phone.

Step four: Click Root, then sit back and wait while the utility does its thing. The aforementioned Supreme took all of about two minutes, including the automated reboot at the end.
And that's all there is to it. If you decide you want to reverse the process, just run Android Root again, connect your phone, then click Remove Root.
With root access on your Android device, you can now be able to remove system apps that came bundled with the phone of which you never make use of, you can install ad-blockers to remove ads that appear on some free applications among other advanced functions.
