I just got an Android phone, but the brand is not one of the famous or worldwide sold brands, it's a Switel Rock S4500D, and I want to root it. Can anyone help me how to do it? As far as I googled, different ways and programs are based on phone brand and model.

    As a "generic advice": Check our rooting index if the device is already listed and, if not, check the rooting methods below the devices list whether one matches. Still unsolved, then ask here – and include what you've checked and tried. – Izzy Nov 21 '14 at 12:44
  • will do , posting more info after a couple of tries , thanx – Hitman2847 Nov 22 '14 at 8:35
  • @Hitman2847 Did you ever succeed? I never found any information about rooting Switel phones. Either they are too hard to crack or (more likely) nobody cares about this brand. – Daniel Alder Aug 17 '15 at 8:20
  • @Daniel Alder : i didn't find anything and did not even try , it is a brand exclusive to switzerland manufactured by china so it is not even a brand :D and i find it unworthy of the money paid to purchase it , so i am planning to change it to a CATERPILLAR S50 soon . i only wanted to root this switel because it has a very small amount of storage – Hitman2847 Aug 17 '15 at 8:25
  • @Hitman2847 Thanks for this information. I always look for information before I buy my phone, I don't have a Switel at home. But if I had, I would try to hack it... OT: A brand doesn't necessarily need to be the name of a company. By definition, Switel is a brand, in the same way as the brand KitKat which is produced by Nestle (not Google :-P ) – Daniel Alder Aug 17 '15 at 13:44

I rooted many unknown brands in last two months and thr are couple of PC programs which will help you to do it easily.

  1. Kingoapp Root
  2. SRSRoot One Click Root for Android (SuperUser)
  3. Mobiegenie (I never tried this one)

all these programs require a windows PC and a Good Data cord for the process.

  • will try and post the outcome , thanx – Hitman2847 Nov 22 '14 at 8:35
  • Vinay, it would be helpful to include links. While Kingoapp Root is already mentioned in our rooting index, the other two are not – would add them if I had a link :) – Izzy Nov 22 '14 at 13:53
  • Just found and added the links to Kingo & SRS. Are you sure Mobiegenie is a rooting app? I've just found a Windows software to manage your device by that name. – Izzy Nov 22 '14 at 14:01

    @Izzy mobogenie is a mobile device manager , but it also gives you the option to backup and restore files and settings as well as rooting your device , never tried rooting by mobogenie though – Hitman2847 Dec 22 '14 at 17:33
