The reason why most of the advanced users buy Android smartphones is due to the fact that they can install custom ROMs and experience the best features in enhanced modes. Furthermore, some of the smartphones like that of Samsung and Xiaomi come with pre-installed custom ROMs with custom UI. When you get bored of those, you can go back to stock Android version easily. But the only complaint that most users make about custom ROMs is that before flashing a custom ROM, one needs to root their device. This rooting process differs for different smartphones and most of them are complicated. Fortunately, RootME is a great solution for them as it almost has a universal rooting method for most of the smartphones.
RootME is a PC based universal toolkit which works both on Windows and Linux. You should note that various smartphones come out every month and the latest ones might have different technologies and the universal rooting method may not work on them. Currently, it works on Samsung, LG and Lenovo devices. You must also be aware of the fact that rooting your device will void the warranty.
