Is it possible to root an android device ....

  • Without using any third party applications like Kingo Root?
  • Without Custom Recovery or Custom ROM?

If yes, please guide me, how to do?

    What device? The process varies a lot based on which device and the version of Android... the only "generic" way that works on most devices with an unlocked bootloader is boot/flash a custom recovery (many devices allow you to BOOT recovery without actually flashing it) and flash SuperSU, but again it depends on your device. – acejavelin Aug 15 '16 at 21:14

  • The only way I know for "generic" MediaTek devices is via androidmtk.com/download-mtk-droid-tool – acejavelin Aug 16 '16 at 0:34

Yes there is a lots of rooting method. Also per device have different rooting method. Anyway expect recovery, rooting app etc. you can root your device with adb too. Here is a universal manual root method by adb.
