GUIDE: ROOT XOLO Q800 X-Edition
Before you begin with the instructions below, make sure your android device is adequately charged — at least 50% battery of the device.
STEP 0: CHECK DEVICE MODEL NO.
To make sure your device is eligible with this, you must first confirm its model no. in ‘About device’ option under Settings. Another way to confirm model no. is by looking for it on the packaging box of your device. It must be Q800.
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.
For help on Backup and Restore, check out our exclusive page on that linked right below.
STEP 2: ROOTING INSTRUCTIONS
Download the Towelroot APK file from the towelroot website given below (Right click on the lamba symbol to download) and transfer it to a separate folder on your phone’s internal / external SD Card.
TOWELROOT APK FILE
DOWNLOAD LINK | File name: tr.apk (110 KB)
└ Click on the lamba icon to begin download
- Install the Towelroot APK file you downloaded above on your phone. For help, check out our guide on → How to Install APK files on Android.
└ During installation you might get a notification like “Google recommends that you do NOT install this app”. It’s okay, it appears because the app plays with Android’s security protocols.
- Open Towelroot app and tap the “make it ra1n” button to begin the rooting process. Then wait till it is finished.
- Once Towelroot is done rooting your phone, install the SuperSU app from Play store (link →) to manage superuser permissions for apps.
