I have an Android 6.0 phone that has not received updates in a year. It has likely dozens of security holes that allow one to gain
root access. I wish to do this in order to remove pre-installed bloatware system apps and change system config files. However, all methods known to me involve running some closed source rooting tool that may very well contain a trojan or other malware.
What open-source (or ideally, type-in
adb shell command list) method is there to root an Android phone not patched in the last year?
Of course, if a rooting tool is open source I would need to build it myself to be sure - so that would involve much more work than executing a script or entering shell commands
