Android rooting is the one and the only method to make your stubborn Android more flexible than it is. Technically, there are two methods to root an Android device and custom recovery method of them is considered as successful than exploiting Android vulnerabilities (One-Click Root) method. Let's get to know how to root Android using custom recovery method in a simple manner. Comparatively, the recovery method is a bit harder method than the one-click method as users have to complete the rooting process following a number of steps.

What Is A Custom Recovery

Generally, all the Android smartphones come with stock recovery and it works as a diagnostic tool for Android with limited capabilities. You can boot your device into recovery mode using a specific OEM button combination. The custom recovery goes beyond the stock recovery and offers a number of useful options and creates an advanced recovery environment on stock Android. Currently, TWRP is the most popular custom recovery and you can flash the Magisk Zip file in TWRP recovery and gain root access.

Rooting In Stock Recovery

If you are a Samsung Galaxy user, you can root your device using the same custom recovery method but without flashing a custom recovery with CF-Auto-Root. CF-Auto-Root is also coming as a flashable root file as same as Magisk but can be flashed using Odin in stock recovery as it is compatible with Samsung stock recovery. You can get it from here
