Blu-Studio-5.0-C-HD-1These are the guidelines to root Blu Studio 5.0 C HD smartphones on any of the current software updates. It will work for any software update that has rolled out for your device up until the date of posting this guide.


  • The following guide is made for the Blu Life Studio C HD variant and isn’t necessarily compatible with any other version of the Blu Studio 5.0 smartphone series. Do not try using this guide unless you have researched this tool works for other devices.


  • Install the universal ADB driver by Koushik Dutta because you will have a hard time finding the official Blu USB drivers online. Alternatively, you may use the Blu dedicated drivers if you can find them from the website. Additionally, we might have them on our USB drivers page in the future too.
  • Make sure you have enabled the Unknown Sources option so you can install apps from outside the Google Play Store. Do that by navigating to the menu > Settings > Security > Unknown Sources and checking the box so that it’s on.
  • Check you have the Developer Options enabled by looking for that menu available from your Settings menu. Those who do not see it must unlock it by tapping over the build number that is available on the About Device page. Keep tapping the build number until it says you are now a developer and then go back to your Settings.
  • Tap and open the Developer Options menu to enable the USB Debugging Mode.


  • Download the KingRoot APK file to your computer.
  • Move the file over to your desktop.
  • Connect the Blu Studio 5.0 device to the computer with the USB cable.
  • Transfer the KingRoot APK file over to the root of the internal SD card storage.
  • Install the KingRoot app on your device just like you would any other APKs (try a file manager).
  • Once done, tap and open the KingRoot app that’s in your devices app drawer.
  • Tap the large Root button found from the applications main page.
  • Wait and watch the progress bar reach 100 %.
  • Eventually it will gives you the “success!” message if it did find a working root method for your device.
  • Close the app and reboot your device manually: Power the Power button once and choose the option to reboot.

Now that your Blu device is rebooted, you can head over to the Google Play Store and start installing those applications you have been waiting to try.

If you have had a sudden change of heart, you can follow our guide to unroot Blu Studio 5.0 C HD smartphones. By unrooting the device, you are agreeing to lock up the Android operating system so you can no longer install any of the apps that require access to your root file system to work. That means no more tweaking the device performance and no more awesome battery saving solutions.

There is nothing stopping you from unrooting the Blu Studio 5.0 device and then rooting it again at a later date if you are having a hard time deciding.
