I found a similar post for my question, but I don't want to downgrade to Kitkat 4.4.4. because of the risk of having data wiped. I do have my current data backed up. My intentions are to root it. pick a software (wondershare or something else) to try and retrieve business info (SMS) from a specific number.. up to about 3 weeks ago. I Accidently erased it and I need it. I am not sure if it is possible, but reading through other forums. It seems like there is a chance? How many SMS before that info gets re-written?
Heres what I am trying to do. I want to root my phone. I have no idea what information is needed so I'm providing the following. Let me know if there is any other information needed.
