How does Towelroot work to root Android devices?
Number6 4 weeks ago
I’ve rooted a number of Android phones and tablets over the years. It has always been a multistep process - install software on laptop from manufacturer, unlock bootloader, install more software to root, connect device being USB cable, etc. Now I’m hearing about Towelroot (towelroot.com) which is supposed to work with almost no effort by the user, you simply download the apk, install and open it, and click a button. Easy peasy. All of my devices are already rooted, and I don’t want to go through the process to unroot just so I can try this out. Has anyone actually used Towelroot successfully, and how does it work without all of the steps they have been necessary up to now?
