There are thousands of Android applications, themes and mods for rooted devices and the XDA Forums are full of custom firmwares and mods for all Android devices. Whether you want an optimized custom firmware or if you want to install mods on your device, you will need to Root your smartphone. There are a lot of methods available for rooting Android smartphones, however, most of these are complicated and time consuming.
A new way is out for rooting SOME Android devices and the method is extremely easy and does everything on its own. This will work on phones with, both, locked and unlocked bootloaders. You will only need to spend 5 to 10 minutes in order to root the phone.
