I bought a new XOLO Q700 last week, with Android jelly bean 4.2.1
I found out two ways to root the phone.
First, as per the instructions given in this website
As quoted in the website...
The process is really simple for rooting the phone:
First what you need to do is download "MotoChopper" on your PC.
Extract the .zip file to a specific folder Install the USB drivers using PdaNet+
Enable USB Debugging mode on your device.
For Windows users, execute the "run.bat" inside the contents of the extracted archive. Be sure to run it as admin.
- For Linux or OS X users, execute “./run.sh” via terminal window.
And its done! I have tested this method on windows and it is working. It will continuously repeat that adb server is outdated and it is killing it but don't worry about it, it will still continue...
Follow the steps carefully in the terminal window. After the window closes itself REBOOT YOUR PHONE!!!
To check if the phone is rooted correctly or not use, Root Checker Basic from the playstore, it should do your work
Second, is using the software UnlockRoot
Though the second method is pretty simple, connect your phone and hit ROOT and UNROOT to revert
While the First method is a little more tedious.
So I would like to know what is the difference between the two methods. Also which would be safer.
