Framaroot is an old, old app. It is so old, it probably won't even root KitKat devices. I don't know why so many people keep trying to use it. Isn't is obvious that if it didn't root your device, you need to try something else? Google is your friend.I tried this for my Moto G XT 1033 (Android 5.1)
But it was not working
Is it not supported ?
Yes, I can help you. Try a different rooting app if this one doesn't work!Framaroot doesn't work on my Sony Xperia C 1604.
Says ERROR 7.
Can you help?
Just take the app off into a quiet corner and have a polite conversation with the app. I've heard reports that it with listen attentively. Simply ask the app to please support your device. But you have to be polite. I also hear the app is quite fond of coffee. Take it with you to Starbucks...you never know, it might support your device. But it's been years since it's been updated, so don't hold your breath.Please make it support for Micromax Canvas P290
Worked on Pantech p1080 (Flex) AT&T without a hitch.Hi,
Here an one-click application to install Superuser and su binary on phone. Look at the compatibility list here to see if this application can be useful for you.
Feedbacks on supported devices will be greatly appreciated in order to update the compatibility list. Post your feedback here
Superuser and su binary include in application work from android 2 to 4.
!! Important !!
Success with this application void warranty on your device.
If you need help, read the FAQ first before posting your question in the help thread
If you like my work, you can buy Framaroot donation app
Many many thanks to all donors
- Download it on your device (links are available at the end of this post)
- Install it with a file explorer or directly from your internet browser, if android warn you about security risk, say OK and check Unknown sources to allow install of applications outside of Play Store.
Open Framaroot and select one of the following action: Install SuperSU, Unroot or Execute script (for advanced users)
Possible case once application is launched
- A popup saying "Your device seems not vulnerable to exploit included in Framaroot", in this case you can uninstall app
- You seeing one or more exploit name, also click on one after you have selected an action and you will see one of the above messages
Possible case once exploit is selected
- "Success ... Superuser and su binary installed. You have to reboot your device"
- "Failed ... Exploit work but installation of Superuser and su binary have failed"
- "Half-Success :-/ ... system partition is read-only, use local.prop trick. Reboot your device and use adb to see if it run as root", happen when the filesystem in use on system partition is a read only filesystem (ex: squashfs)
- "Failed ... Try another exploit if available"
- Framaroot crash or freeze, in this case relaunch Framaroot a second time and select the same action and exploit

Is framaroot work on my device ?
If your device is in the compatibility list above, the short answer is : yes but it depends of your firmware version, latest firmware have less chance to be rooted.
If your device is not in the compatibility list and it embed one of the processor mentionned above, the answer is : try it and see.
Why framaroot doesn't root anymore after I update my device ?
Because framaroot exploit security holes present in several devices which has been patched with update you have done, so exploits can't root your device anymore. Framaroot's exploits have a very short life to keep your device "less exposed" to others malicious application. Keep in mind that framaroot is not a permanent rooting application.
I loose root after update, what I can do to root my device now ?
An advice : if you want to have a chance to keep root after update, don't update with Kies or ODIN for samsung devices or don't flash system partition, prefer OTA update and use OTA survival feature in Superuser or SuperSU.
And if you have no choice, you can use the traditional method : flash tools specific to your device
Will framaroot include more exploits ?
Yes, but don't ask when since I don't know myself, it depend of the vendors fix response.
Framaroot crash when I select Gandalf exploit ?
Often the first time you launch Framaroot by selecting Gandalf as exploit, it crash Framaroot. Don't worry, in this case you have to re-launch Framaroot and select Gandalf again, the second time it should work.
What means error# on result ?
All errors less or equal to 9 mean your device is not vulnerable.
If you get error#10, give a try with Framaroot 1.5.3.
All other errors need some investigation about your kernel image.
Framaroot say Success but SuperSU is not installed after reboot ?
Maybe there is some additional protection on your device or something goes wrong with SuperSU version embedded in Framaroot.
In this case, I recommend to use "Execute script" action and put your own shell script commands in /sdcard/custom (use at your own risk, all commands are executed with root privileges). Look at this post to know how to use custom script.
What can I do when the result is Half-success ?
You see this message when the /system partition on your device is a read-only filesystem (eg: SquashFS). To handle this case Framaroot try to use a trick by adding "ro.kernel.qemu=1" in file /data/local.prop. To test if this trick work you have to reboot your device and connect to it with adb shell. Once connected type the "id" command to see if you are root.
If you are not root, your last chance is to select "Execute script" action and put your own shell script commands in /sdcard/custom (use at your own risk, all commands are executed with root privileges). Look at this post to know how to use custom script.
Dude, it's considered very poor etiquette to quote the entire original post to simply say that Framaroot worked on your device! Thanks for letting everyone know, by you may want to edit your post to delete the original post.Worked on Pantech p1080 (Flex) AT&T without a hitch.
Tried other methods including SRS Root earlier.
Use your imagination. If Framaroot doesn't work for your device, then isn't it obvious that you should simply try a different rooting app???I'm using LG phoenix 2 and am getting failed error code 6 it says try another exploit but does nothing else help please
Just try it,anything will be changed in your phone if it doesn't work.My device isn't on the "Compatible" list? Will it just say "Not Compatible" and nothing will be changed? Also, is this an APK or do I open it with "Package Installer"?
gonna get killed for this post
Did you really expect an app that hasn't been updated since Jellybean to root Marshmallow??? Ever heard of something called GOOGLE?i tried it rooting my samsung galaxy j7 (exnyos variant) with latest version marshmallow 6.0.1 but its not working properly the result is rooting is unavailable.. so pls help me in this issue..
Dude, you've got me rolling on the floor in belly aching laughter. So Framaroot cannot root most phones. It's an app that's almost 3 years old! And has not been updated since. I have no idea how you found this thread. Have you heard of a search engine called Google? You type in the following: "how to root my blah blah blah phone". It will reveal probably a dozen links explaining how to root your phone. Follow the links.So there is no way to root my phone??
