  2. Download the Mobile Uncle Tools app from the Google play link provided in the Downloads section and install it.
  3. Launch the Mobile Uncle Tools app from the app drawer. It will request you for the Root permissions.
    Note: If it doesn’t request for root permission, follow the root guide given above carefully once again.
