  1. And it looks like this, with step one asking the following from you: place the file you had to download a couple of minutes ago on the laptop (its desktop, to be more specific).
  2. Step two will need you to go to that file and then extract the content into a dedicated folder, on the laptop’s desktop.

  4. Opt for Normal mode and then for Root.
  5. The phone will root, and, at the end of this phase, you should reboot the handset to finish our tutorial.
