How to Root your Android Phone?
There are various official & unofficial ways that you can use/try to get root access on your Android phone, one of my favorite & easiest methods is using TWRP recovery. That was very back in time when you could root your device using some Android apps such as KingoRoot, etc but nowadays, in modern smartphones, it doesn’t work likely. However, you can try rooting your device using Kingoroot as well. But today, we will always go for the easiest method i.e. using custom TWRP recovery.
