Rooting an Android phone gives full power and it is not that hard!

  1. Download these 2 files and put them in Internal Storage.
  2. Now Open Updater App in your phone and click on Menu and choose Choose “Choose Update Package” and select the TWRP file (HM2014813_TWRP2.8.6.1_signed.zip). Now your phone will reboot into Recovery. (newly installed TWRP Recovery)

    NOTE: If your phone reboots automatically after installing TWRP recovery, thats OK. Just Open Updater App and Boot into Recovery Mode and Proceed to Step 3.Screenshot_2015-10-12-22-01-06

     

  3. If you did not reboot after Step 2 but TWRP was successfully installed, just go back and click Install again and select UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.6.zip (Super SU root app).
  4. Click on Reboot System after SuperSU is installed.Screenshot_2015-10-13-01-51-24
