I have an ASUS tablet filled with bloatware which I would like to remove very much. I've read about having to root the device, which I am willing, since I think I left some corrupted files when I was about to reinstall an app and I could not delete it with normal access. But I need to know the risks of rooting an ASUS device, if it were the same as rooting a Samsung device of the same OS, or greater.

My OS is Lollipop by the way.

Thank you, thank you.


Since it's lollipop you'll have to unlock the bootloader before being able to root.(warranty will be void) Then you can download a compatible recovery and flash it using fastboot. You can then use the recovery to install su. Caution: Unlocking bootloader will clear all the data from your tablet. Lemme know if you understand the risk and are willing to do it. I'll write a guide for you if you want. Here's a wiki link for unlocking the BL:http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Template:Unlock_Bootloader_Asus

  • I understand the risks. Thank you. I'm ready. :) – Monica Labbao May 9 '16 at 9:58
  • Actually, the link I provided pretty much acts as a guide which is why edited my answer. Read it and tell me if you don't understand any step. – prof.Zoom May 9 '16 at 11:06
