Before you begin with guide instructions below, make sure your android device is adequately charged — at least 50% battery of the device.

  STEP 1: BACKUP YOUR DEVICE

Back up important data and stuff before you start playing around here as there are chances you might lose your apps and app-data (app settings, game progress, etc.), and in rare case, files on the internal memory, too.
