  1. What is the purpose of having your device rooted? What are its advantages and disadvantages as well? I am interested on this but is afraid of the consequences. Tried checking online for answers but it seems complicated and I am quite confused. Hope you can help me out with this.

    1. Hi,
      Root can give you many advantage such as you can install custom recovery. With custom recovery you can backup, restore, format and etc on your android system. With root you can change system files on your android device such as change theme, lock screen, change ui and etc this can be done if you know how to do it. But if ability to change the system files you also can accident erase system files that make your android brick, warranty will void if you root your device. I think that and i hope you undestand, ask me if you still dont understand

    1. hi,
      have you successful install the USB VCOM driver? if already successful and keep connect and disconnecting, i have ever read on some forum that you need to press volume up or volume down (i forget i am not sure) while connecting your device. maybe you can try it and see on the device manager.
