So let's start with some basics.
What is rooting exactly and what do I gain from this?
Rooting an Android device (Your typical phone or tablet for example) is the process of modifying your device in order to gain SuperUser (SU) rights. It's basically the same thing you do in a PS3 console when you jailbreak it. You gain full control over the device. Having this kind of control, you can literally change almost every aspect of your device personalizing and tweaking it to your own liking, or even modding android games, removing all kinds of ads even from apps and even more.However as you can probably guess this has some drawbacks as well. Most importantly should you follow the guide and root your phone, you WILL void your warranty and if you mess up, you can even brick your device. So consider yourself warned. Me nor NGU will take any responsibility if anything happens to your device.
There are two basic ways of rooting your device.
1) It's the most commonly used and suggested way (and the best in my opinion). The PC/ADB (Android Debugging Bridge) way! (If you want to install a Custom ROM this is the most known way )
2) The App way! (Pretty much self-explanatory, you use an app to root your device.)
The most trusted apps to do this is either Kingroot, Kingoroot, Framaroot, Magisk and more all you got to do is search which one is compatible with your phone and which one you like.
-Always Back-up before attempting anything.
-Since this is not a full guide make some more research before you actually try to do anything.
-Be patient. This is not something to be taken lightly, one wrong step and you could be saying goodbye to your phone.
-Ask for help if you don't know what to do or you are stuck.
Downloads/What you are going to need
You need to download your phone's developer's USB drivers if you are going to use ADB or want to add a custom recovery (More on that on another post).
ADB tools folder download link (its named platform-tools) Extract the folder from the rar archive and in order to use them, open the folder, hold down the Shift button, hit right-click and select "open command window(cmd) here"

Suggested Apps to have after rooting
It's an app that can be used if you have installed Magisk Framework to root your device. It has a huge variety of things to optimize your experience and can also edit your SuperUser permissions given to apps. (Like hiding it from certain apps, etc.)
The app every one basically wants to have. It can hide ads disable them, allow you to buy free shit from inside your games (Not working with all games), You can apply custom patches to apps or create them yourself and so much more. It's the All-Star of the All-Star apps xD
That's what we call the mother of all f*ckery, this app can help you tweak your phone to the absolute max. Enough said!
This is the mother of all Back-Up apps. It can backup EVERYTHING on your phone!
It's more of a supporting app for LuckyPatcher but it still has it's own usefulness
Root Explorer or ES File Explorer
Both work great, both can access that sweet sweet little-hidden part of your device that houses all of the files and folder stored in your device and not only your sd card and internal storage
It's basically like Magisk Manager, but since sometime ago Chainfire has stopped maintenance of this app. It's still useful and works 100% but it's a bit outdated compared to Magisk
That would be all basically for this guide. It's my first guide ever so don't hate too much xD. If it helped you or given you a general idea of what rooting is then my purpose has been fulfilled.
