Today customizing smartphones have become an easy thing to achieve. The boom in technology and the easy availability of the resources have enabled Android enthusiasts to perform things like rooting the device, installing third party OS, non-official recoveries, theme packs, etc. One of the major aspects of the customization is rooting. It is basically getting the superuser access for the device which you want to root. Some times people get misinformed and think that rooting is the same as hacking which is entirely a false concept. Rooting is just being a more technically sound user with access to more features than what a regular user gets with their smartphone.
Rooting the smartphone is the essential first step in modifying a smartphone from under-the-hood. In this post, we will tell you how to root Blackview BV6100 using Magisk.
