So you want to root the BLU Studio Energy smartphone, and you need some root apps to get your unlocked operating system experienced under way — where do you turn? There are many options out there for you to check out.
Sadly, the Google Play Store doesn’t give us lists of root app and non-root apps for us to install, but a quick Google search can ping back hundreds of results for those of you who are wanting to find the best root apps available for Android or anything alike. It lets you browse heaps of domains all of which have created their individual lists of the best root apps to install on smartphones running the Android operating system. Most of the time, the phone that you have in your hands is not at all relevant. Instead, what is relevant is the version of Android operating system you are using or just the fact that you are using Android. It is rare you will need to worry about the exact Android version, but there are times when it is relevant like if you were to install the Xposed Framework on your BLU Studio Energy smartphone.
Here is everything you need to root BLU Studio Energy smartphones running on the Android 4.4.2 KitKat software updates by using a handy one-click rooting application known to the world as Kingroot.
- The following guide is created with the BLU Studio Energy smartphone in mind when it is running the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update. As far as we know, this handset never got updated to Lollipop, and the Lollipop was reserved for the BLU Studio 2 smartphone instead. You should find this guide works for all versions of KitKat that your device gets updated to in the future if you see any more software updates.
BEFORE WE BEGIN
- Unlock the Developer Options menu on the BLU Studio Energy smartphone if you must by tapping on the Settings > About Device and then tapping where it gives you the Build Number. Keep tapping that build number at least seven times and do to stop until it gives you a message on the display saying that you are using the smartphone as a developer now.
- Now that you have the Developer Options unlocked, it is time to enter the new menu and enable the USB Debugging. To enable the USB Debugging, head to the Settings > Developer Options and then check the box that is there for the USB Debugging Mode and you will have turned it on.
HOW TO ROOT BLU STUDIO ENERGY
- Download the Kingroot one click rooting app from the XDA-Developers forum.
- Install the KingRoot app on your BLU smartphone directly by visiting the web page above from your web browser and following the prompts to get it installed on your device.
- Head to the app drawer on your BLU smartphone and tap on the new Kingroot app that is available on your smartphone.
- Tap on the large button on the main page that says it will test to root your device.
- Give it a few seconds to ping back the result and then start rooting your device; you will get a progress bar on the display letting you know how it is going.
- Wait until your BLU smartphone gets the progress bar at 100% and a success message pops up on the screen.
- Close the Kingroot application and then reboot the BLU smartphone the same way you usually would.
In conclusion, that is how to root BLU Studio Energy smartphones running on the Android 4.4.2 KItKat update. You should find all of the same root apps work for you that you would expect to work when you root with any other rooting tool like SuperSU. However, Kingroot does not require an unlocked bootloader and does not unlock the bootloader for you, so check whether your smartphone needs the bootloader unlocked before you try installing a custom recovery if you are planning on installing some after market firmware.
