Hey guys I am starting this Series because I thought there was a lack of post about Hacking from Android.
In This series I will tell you about That your Android can really be used for hacking just like your other systems.
So in the first of the many posts I will be telling how exactly you can prepare your Android. Android is an OS which is locked down very deeply inside and Gives only a few permissions. So to use all the exploits (or apps) which we want to use we need to get special permissions. We can exactly do this by ROOTING your phone, Now rooting is a method to unlock your android at deepest level.
Now rooting void your guarantee ( but you can always unroot your phone and company wont get any notice of that)
Nowadays rooting is one of the simplest thing in today's world.
With apps like Framaroot, kingroot and several special root packages From XDA developers (if your phone doesn,t support both of the above apps) you can root your phone in like 1-2 mins.
Rooting your OS helps you to run several several apps which you weren't allowed before. And these apps can really be helpful.
I will tell you guys about them in my upcoming posts.
So to root your phone
Go to google and search if your phoe is supported by framaroot or kingroot. ( just type on google- Rooting "your phone model name" by kingroot/framaroot. and search)
You will get the whole procedure to root your phone there.
I am not providing tutorial here because i cannot cover every smartphone in one post.
But if your phone does not support both of the apps don't worry
Friends at XDA have special rooting package for your phone.
Just type in google's search box-Root " your phone model name" .
I am providing links to direct download These above stated apps
So you don't have to bother.
