The most popular smartphone app for managing files is "ES File Explorer". This program allows the user to operate files in the same way as on a computer: copy, move, rename, and so on. Getting Root access allows you to use the additional functions of the explorer.
What is Root rights?
From English root is translated as a root. Obtaining these rights means that the user expands the capabilities of the phone's operating system and gets to its "root". The smartphone is factory set to "guest" mode. This means that the owner does not have full-fledged capabilities: he cannot change the system files, remove built-in applications, flash the system on his own, and so on. Getting Root-rights on android gives the following benefits:
- It becomes possible to flash the device yourself.
- You can edit system applications, as well as the desktop of the device. Due to this, you can radically change the appearancedisplay.
- Adjust the speed of processes and change the performance of your smartphone.
- Remove system programs and install new ones.
Why Root is needed in Explorer
"ES Explorer" is designed primarily to access files on the device or on external media. This program without rights will not allow the user to get into the files of the system, much less change them.
It is for penetration into the "OS" that you need Root in the explorer. If you have rights, "ES Explorer" will allow you to view system data and exploit them. Consider accessing this feature.
Getting Root rights
First of all, it should be noted that smartphones do not have such a procedure. That is, the introduction of administrator rights removes the warranty from the new device and exposes the phone to the risk of breakage, for which only the user is responsible. Therefore, such an operation must be carried out very carefully.
Before implementing Root rights, you should, just in case, transfer all important files to removable media.
To install the Root Explorer on an android, you must first get the rights. There are several programs for this. Consider two of them: KingRoot and FramaRoot.
The first app is versatile and simple. The first step is to download it from the web. Installation should be done exclusively from trusted sites or from the official one. When you start the application, you need to go to the menu. A Try to Root button will appear or"Try Root", which must be clicked and wait for the process to finish.
If an error appears, then most likely it is impossible to get rights on this device and install Root-Explorer. But it's still worth trying the second app.
FramaRoot is also a simple program. You need to download it from the web and run it. After that, several functions will appear: "install SuperSU", "remove Root rights" and "run script". It is clear that in order to obtain rights, you need to press the first button, then select one character, for example Boromir, and start the installation. If the operation is successful, a smiling emoticon will appear on the screen.
Working with "ES Explorer"
Now you can proceed to install "ES Explorer" with Root. Step by step instructions:
Download ES File Explorer from Play Market. The application is free and available for all smartphones
- Open the function bar by tapping the three bars in the upper left corner or swiping the screen to the right.
- In the screen that opens, you need to find the "Root-Explorer" and click on it. This button can be either in the panel itself or in the "Tools" tab.
If permissions are set on the smartphone, the application will require consent to use them. You need to grant access and continue
This process can be completed, however, to edit system filesyou need to do one more operation: hold down the Root Explorer button to open the settings for this section. A window will appear where you need to click "Connect as R/W". All flags must be rearranged to the R/W position. "ES File Explorer" is now fully rooted.
After the operations performed, the user will have access to built-in files, editing all applications, desktop, text and similar functions.
Install Root Explorer only if the user is confident in their device. As already mentioned, administrator rights completely destroy the warranty on the device, so in the event of a breakdown, repairs can be expensive. It is worth first determining what the administrator functions are for, and only after that carry out the above operations.
