One of the best thing about the android OS is how it gives you the ability to tweak almost anything on your smartphone to your satisfaction. But to get full control over your android smartphone, you need root access. Although there are many one click root apps that can root your android devices automatically within few minutes but they don’t work for the latest OS version like Marshmallow and Nougat.
