  • Service Provider

    I assume this is some kind of Android question? I'm not sure that I follow.



  • Yes its android related question only



  • It sounds like he is asking which he should upgrade first -
    The OS on his device or
    the software providing him root access.

    Assuming the upgrade to the root software is compatible with the old OS, I'd do it first. But unless the root software will be maintained through an upgrade, you'll likely have to re-install the root software after the OS install.



  • The root software is for whole device whether the root software comes for the different Android version 6 or 7?

    Assuming this is a question.... the root software is often dependent upon the device android is installed on because the software uses different flaws in the Android software on the device to give you root access.

    Root access on android isn't something we normally get from a vendor. The best way to think about it is.. think of it like getting Windows without admin rights.
    Now, because of the way android is written, you are allowed to install applications without root, but that's about all. You can't change system level things in Android by default. You have to break it from it's designed way of working. i.e. getting Root.



  • Most of the time when you upgrade android, you break root. If you upgrade before you root, rooting may not be possible.

    I would advise against doing any rooting procedures if you do not understand the process of rooting. You are likely to brick the device.
