How to root Android phones and tablets


Do you want more control over your smartphone? Android rooting opens up a whole new world of possibility, but it can also void your warranty, leave you with a broken smartphone or tablet, or worse.
Before proceeding, it is important to understand that rooting is not always a straightforward process and you may encounter hiccups along the way.
If you decide that you absolutely need to root your Android device, continue below, but know that it isn’t for the faint of heart or technology-inexperienced.


Preparing for root

Back up everything you cannot live without before you start. You should also always back up your phone’s current ROM before you flash a new one.
 You will also want to ensure that your device is fully charged before you begin.
You will need to turn on USB debugging, as well as OEM Unlocking. Do this by opening Settings on your device.
 If you do not see Developer Options toward the bottom of the Settings screen, follow these steps to activate it.
1.Tap on About Phone and find the Build Number. The exact path depends           on your phone, but it’ll usually be found with other software information.
2.Tap on the Build Number seven times and the Developer Options will  appear on the main page of the Settings. You may need to confirm your  security passcode to enable this.
3.Tap on the Back key to see your new developer options.
4.Tap Developer Options.
5.Check to enable USB Debugging.
6.Check to enable OEM Unlocking.

How to root your Android device with multiple programs
There are a lot of different ways to root your phone or tablet. Here are a few of our favorites.
Framaroot is a newer one-click rooting service, and it aims to make the process of rooting easy for everyone with a simple one-click “root” button. However, you might have to jump through a couple of hoops to get it started.
1.Download the APK.
2.Install it — you may need to tap the Unknown sources button in your Android Security settings to complete the installation.
3.Open the app, and tap Root.
4.If the app finds it’s able to root your device, it will do so. If it can’t you’ll need to try another method.
5.If your device can be rooted, you can go ahead and root your device.
6.You’ll then need to download and run SuperSU to manage your root access.
Firmware.mobi, an unlocking utility by developer Chainfire, isn’t the easiest way to root your Android smartphone, but it is one of the most stable.
 It works on more than 300 devices and provides step-by-step instructions that make the rooting process as seamless as it possibly could be.
You will need to download the appropriate ZIP file for your device.
Once you have done that, follow these steps:
1.Extract the folder.
2.Navigate to it, and find the root-windows.bat file. Double-click it.
3.Wait for the script to execute, and press any key.
4.When the process is complete, your phone will automatically reboot, and you will be rooted.

 

CF-Auto-Root

Created by XDA Senior Recognized Developer ChainfireCF-Auto-Root is a root for “rooting beginners” and those who want to keep as close to stock as possible.
 CF-Root is meant to be used in combination with stock Samsung firmwares as well as Nexus devices, and be the quickest and easiest way for your first root.
 In essence, it does nothing but install and enable SuperSU on your system, so apps can gain root access.
The easiest way to use KingoRoot is to install the app version, which literally performs the root process with just one tap.
In fact, the only complicated part is actually getting that app onto your Android device. That's because it's not available in the Google Play Store; instead, you must download the KingoRoot APK and manually install it.
ideally, you'll just point your device's mobile to the KingoRoot Android page and download it directly. If that doesn't work for some reason, or you're working from your PC, download the APK and email it to yourself as an attachment.
 Then, on your device, open that e-mail and download that attachment.
To install it, however, you'll need to make sure your device is set to allow apps from unknown sources.
In most versions of Android, that goes like this: Head to Settings, tap Security, scroll down to Unknown Sources and toggle the switch to the on position.
Now you can install KingoRoot. Then run the app, tap One Click Root, and cross your fingers.
 If all goes well, your device should be rooted within about 60 seconds. (On my aforementioned Galaxy S6, the process made it to 90 percent, then the phone crashed and rebooted. Luckily, no harm done.)


The desktop version

Kingo's support pages suggested I might have better luck with the Galaxy S6 if I tried the Windows version of KingoRoot. Here's that process:

Step 1: Download and install KingoRoot for Windows, making sure to leave unchecked the option to "Install Yahoo powered Chromium browser" and then click Decline to prevent any other adware incursions.

Step 2: 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 (including 5.0, though this also applies to 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!"

With that done, tap Settings, About Phone, Developer Options, and then tick USB debugging." Then tap OK to approve the setting change.

Step 3: Run Android Root on your PC, then connect your phone via its USB sync cable. After a moment, the former should show a connection to the latter.

Your device screen may show an "Allow USB debugging?" pop-up. Tick "Always allow from this computer," then tap OK.

Step 4: Click Root, then sit back and wait while the utility does its thing. After a few minutes, my Galaxy S6 got to 70 percent, and then the phone once again crashed and rebooted. Again, your mileage can (and most likely will) vary.

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. (Same goes for the app version, more or less.)

Now, what should you do with your rooted phone? Hit the comments to share your favorite options.

How to Shut Down & Restart Your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max


How to Shut Down & Restart Your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max



Shut Down Using Your iPhone's Buttons
As mentioned above, simply pressing-and-holding the Side button on your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max will summon Siri instead of bringing up the "Slide to Power Off" option. Now, in order to turn off your device, you have two options with the buttons.
You can simultaneously press and hold the Side and volume up buttons, then let go once the "Slide to Power Off" bar appears and swipe on the bar to turn it off. Keep in mind that if you press and release too quickly on the volume up and Side buttons, you run the risk of taking an accidental screenshot instead of bringing up the shut down option.
Alternatively, you can opt to quickly hit the volume up button, followed by the volume down button, then press and hold the Side button to bring up "Slide to Power Off" bar. The SOS bar doesn't come up when using this method, which eliminates the risk accidentally triggering a 911 call (along with the need to re-enter your passcode if you change your mind, which is required on the first method).ption
 2Shut Down from the Settings Menu

In addition to the hardware method of shutting down your iPhone, you can now shut down your iPhone thanks to an option that's available within its Settings app. To do so, head to "General" within the Settings page, then scroll down to the bottom and hit "Shut Down" to bring up the "slide to power off" option.


3Restart Using Your iPhone's Buttons

Once you've turned off iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max using one of the power down method above, simply press and hold on the Side button and let go after the Apple boot screen appears. Beyond that, plugging in your Lightning cable to charge or connect to your computer will also turn your iPhone back on — no button pressing required.
Option 4
Restart Using AssistiveTouch

In addition to the methods above, you also have the ability to restart your iPhone using on-screen controls, this time by way of AssistiveTouch. Since iOS 11, the useful Accessibility feature has had a "Restart" option present and can be accessed by following the menu below. This option is the quickest way to execute a restart, so long as you have AssistiveTouch assigned to the triple-click Side button shortcut.
AssistiveTouch -> Device -> More -> Restart

Optio
n 5Restart Using Voice Control

With iOS 13, you now have a completely hands-free method of restarting your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max, courtesy of Voice Control. Of course, you'll need to have the Accessibility feature set up and enabled to use. So if you haven't already done so, head to the menu below to get Voice Control up and running.
Settings -> Accessibility -> Voice Control -> Enable Voice Control
Once Voice Control is enabled, you can instantly restart your device simply by saying "Reboot Device," followed by "Tap Restart."
In addition, you can say "Hey Siri," then "Turn on Voice Control" if you have Voice Control set up but disabled. Once enabled (indicated by the blue mic icon on the status bar), simply invoke the "Reboot Device" command as described above, and say "Tap Restart."

How to Activate Emergency SOS on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Max


Activating Emergency SOS on your iPhone automatically calls emergency services and sends a text message with your location information to the people in your emergency contacts. For this reason, you should only use it when you're in danger or facing a genuine emergency. Note that you'll need to enter your iPhone's passcode to reenable Face ID and unlock your iPhone after performing Emergency SOS.
 1.Press and hold the Side button as well as either one of the Volume buttons, so that you're essentially squeezing either side of the device.
2.Keep squeezing until the Emergency SOS countdown initiates on the screen. You can either wait for the countdown to finish or slide it across to call the emergency services immediately and alert your emergency contacts.
How to Hard Reset the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max

1.Quickly press and release the Volume Up button.

2.Quickly press and release the Volume Down button.
3.Press and hold the Side button until the Apple logo appears, then release the Side button.
During this process, you will see a slider to power off the iPhone. You're going to want to ignore it and continue holding down the Side button until the screen goes black. At that point, the Apple logo will pop up, and after the restart is complete, the screen will activate once again.
Using the force restart process prevents you from having to shut the iPhone down entirely, which takes several more steps.
If you do want to shut the iPhone down, you can do so by going to the General section of the Settings app, scrolling down to the bottom, and choosing the Shut Down option.
How to Enter Recovery Mode on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max
Entering recovery mode can help if you're having trouble updating or restoring your iPhone over the air. For example, if the screen shows the Apple logo for several minutes but no progress bar appears, you can try putting the device in recovery mode and restoring it with iTunes. Here's how it works.
1. Using the Lightning cable that came with your iPhone, connect the device to a computer that has the latest version of iTunes installed.
2. Launch iTunes on your Mac or PC.
3. With the iPhone connected, force restart it with the following steps, but don't release the buttons when you see the Apple logo. Instead, wait until the recovery mode screen appears.
4. Press and quickly release the Volume Up button.

5. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button.
6. Press and hold the Side button until you see the recovery mode screen with the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then release it.
7. Select your device in iTunes.
8. You should see a message in iTunes saying that your iPhone is in Recovery Mode. You'll then be given options to update or restore your iPhone’s software.

How to Exit Recovery Mode on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max

Simply press and hold the Side button until the "Connect to iTunes" screen disappears, and your iPhone should reboot back into iOS.

How to uninstall apps in Android

If you’re running out of storage on your Android device, you might be wondering how to delete apps from your phone. Deleting an app is an easy task that doesn’t take a whole lot of time. However, the process may be different depending on the device you have and what version of Android it’s running.



Uninstalling apps from stock Android is simple:
1.     Select the Settings app from your app drawer or home screen.
2.     Tap Apps & Notifications, then hit See all apps.
3.     Scroll down the list until you find the app you want to remove and tap it.
4.     Select Uninstall.

How to delete apps from your Android device

 Delete apps in settings

This method works for all versions of Android. The first thing you should do is open the Settings menu on your device. After that, open Apps or Application manager (depending on your device), find the app you want to delete and select it, and then just tap on the Uninstall button.
The app will be deleted from your device in a matter of seconds in most cases. Once completed, you’ll be directed back to the Apps menu, where you can repeat the process to delete more apps if you want or have to.
Step by step instructions:
1.   Open Settings on your device.
2.   Tap on Apps or Application manager.
3.   Tap on the app you want to remove. You may need to scroll to find the right one.
4.   Tap Uninstall

 Delete apps on the Google Play Store


The second option is to delete apps you want to get rid of by visiting the Play Store. Find and launch the Play Store app on your device, open the Settings, and select My apps & games. 
Then just navigate to the Installed section, open the app you want to delete, and tap on Uninstall.
After a few seconds, the app will be deleted from your device. If you want to get rid of more apps, just tap on the back button on your smartphone or tablet to get to the Installed section again and repeat the process.
Step by step instructions:
1.   Open the Play Store app on your device.
2.   Open the Settings menu.
3.   Tap on My apps & games.
4.   Navigate to the Installed section.
5.   Tap the app you want to remove. You may need to scroll to find the right one.
6.   Tap Uninstall.

Delete in the app drawer


This is probably the fastest and easiest way to delete apps on your smartphone or tablet, although it doesn’t work on devices running older versions of Android.
 If the method described below doesn’t work for you, just stick to either one of the two options listed above.
Here’s how it works. Just open up the app drawer where all of your apps are located, tap and hold on the one you want to get rid of, and drag it to the Uninstall section that you’ll see on the screen.
The final step is just to tap on OK when the window asking you if you want to uninstall the app pops up.
This process also works for apps that are on your home screen, and not just those that are in the app drawer.
Step by step instructions:
1.   Tap and hold on an app located in the app drawer or on the home screen.
2.   Drag it to the Uninstall section that appears on the screen.
3.   Tap on OK when the pop-up window appears.

How to delete pre-installed apps


All Android devices come pre-installed with quite a few different apps. These can include a number of useful ones that most people don’t mind such Gmail, YouTube, Facebook, and so on.
However, there’s also a good chance that your device will come preloaded with apps you don’t intend on using that are made by the manufacturer or your carrier.
 In most cases, these apps can’t be uninstalled from your device quite as easily as the ones you have downloaded yourself. So if you use any of the three options listed above, you won’t see an Uninstall button at the very end of the process, as you can see in the image below.
The apps that can’t be deleted are called system apps, and the only way to get rid of them is to root your device.
 If you’re unfamiliar with the term, rooting simply refers to the act of obtaining access to commands, system files, and folder locations that are usually locked off for the user.
Rooting could be thought of as moving from being a system user to becoming an administrator, with the additional freedom and risks that come with more control over the deeper workings of your device.
 If you want to go down this road, click on the link below to learn more about the process of rooting your device.
The alternative is to simply hide the system apps you don’t want to use in the app drawer if your device allows it.
This won’t delete the apps, but at least they won’t clutter your app drawer.
