The contact numbers stored in the SIM card will not be affected though. Backup other items like photos, ringtones, music and videos to a micro SD card before rooting.

2) If you do not backup the installed apps then those could be deleted. So, take backup of the apps which you have loaded from the Play store or via 3rd party.

3) The mobile should be sufficiently charged. We recommend to keep the battery level above 70%. If you have a phone with low charge level, then it could be shut off during the operation. Such an accident can brick your phone.

4) You need to enable USB Debugging from the menu. This is the loop hole in the impenetrable house of Android. Our program breaks the gates by entering through this hole.

5) Disable the antivirus software and the firewall on your machine. Otherwise, these programs can interfere with the whole process.
