Easiest Method to Root Almost any Android 4.4 KitKat Device


Depending upon what smartphone you are using, your smartphone can be rooted through multiple root methods. However most methods to root an android device can be time consuming and difficult for novice android users. Although you will  need to have a lot of patience while you root your android device, but the end result will liberate your android device from all the restrictions imposed by its manufacturer.

Fortunately once in a while, developer come across certain loopholes in the Android OS and exploit it in order to gain root access. Previously i had written an guide on rooting Android devices using an one click app called Framaroot and thanks to it thousands of android users were able to root their android devices without much effort. Framaroot was mostly capable of rooting Android devices running anything Android 4.1.2 by making use of certain unpatched exploits in Android 4.1.2. However these exploits were patched in android 4.2 and above and as a result Framaroot could not root Android devices running android 4.3 and above.

Fortunately, once again another similar app called as Towelroot has been released that is capable of rooting android devices running Android 4.4 KitKat with a single click. Developed by Geohot ( the guy who jailbroke the iPhone and modded the PS3 ) Towelroot is an one click android app that can root almost any android device running Android 4.4 KitKat.

Towelroot was developed with an intention to root Samsung Galaxy devices running Android 4.4, however it was also able to root other android devices running Android 4.4 KitKat. Here’s how you can use Towelroot to rot any supported android device running Android 4.4 KitKat.
