What is root and how to do it?

Rooting is the process of allowing users of smartphones, tablets and other devices running the Android mobile operating system to attain privileged control (known as root access) over various Android subsystems.

Rooting is often performed to overcome limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices. Thus, rooting gives the ability (or permission) to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized applications ("apps") that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user.

Do I need rooting the target device for using SPYERA?

No, the root is NOT required!

SPYERA can be installed on any Android device running on a compatible OS version.
Please check the compatibility page for supported OS versions.
We recommend rooted devices as some features will not work on non-rooted phones.

What features are available for Non-Rooted Devices?

Please follow the method below to find features that need root permission

Go to All features will be listed by default.
On this page, all available features will be listed by default.
Explore features by clicking on a platform

In the platform menu, you will see two options for Android devices.
Android Phones = Click to see all available features for non-rooted Android.
Android Phones - Rooted = Click to see all available features for rooted Android.

How to root the target device?

We can't directly support the rooting process or any other 3rd party software which we are not authorized.
SPYERA is not a rooting software and does not have such functions.

However, we have some rooting tutorials for the most well-known devices.
You can also google your target device's model and find tutorials in that way.

Please check our tutorial on this link:

If you want to see tutorials for your phone specifically please google it as "Your Phone model + how to root"

If you need to a feature that requires root permission we recommend you to try rooting the target device first.
If that is successful then you can try purchase and complete installing SPYERA afterwards.

Do I need to root my phone or target phone?

Only the target phone receives the software.
It does not matter what model your own phone is, or what network you use.
Only the Target phone matters.
