    To root your phone manually, you need to turn on USB Debugging. 

    1. Go to Setting, Find kernel version in About.
    2. Tap it seven times, at which point you should see the message, "You are now a developer!" With that done, tap Settings, About Phone, Developer Options, and then tick USB debugging." Then tap OK to approve the setting change. 
    3. Now turn it ON  in fastboot mode and unlock the bootloader.
    4. Install a recovery to help you with flashing.
    5. Flash a supporting custom ROM and gapps.

  • How to hide photos and videos on OPPO A1K ?

    B

    Answered By Brijesh Bhat | 1 years ago

    There might be some pictures or videos that you want to keep safe, so you have no worries while sharing your phone with others for a phone call or showing the selected pictures you took on your last trip.


    You can hide sensitive pictures and video and just relax. 
    There are many ways of doing that.

    The Technical Way:
    • One way to hide pictures from showing up in your gallery is to change their extension. 
    • You can do that by renaming them and putting something else than .jpg or .jpeg
    • These are the formats which your phone photo viewer understand as a picture.
    • Your pics are not hidden and still accessible through File manager, but they will surely not show up in the gallery.
    The Easiest way:
    The easiest way to hide and unhide your pictures in bulk is to use a vault. There are a lot of applications available for hiding your pictures and videos. You can choose one from them:


    My personal favorite is Vault as it allows you to hide SMS and take backups. You can also protect your applications with this.

    Know how to Vault:

  • How to enable VOLTE on Xiaomi Redmi 8A ?

    H

    Answered By Harita Balasubramanium | 1 years ago

    You don't need to enable VoLTE. Insert the Jio (VoLTE enabled) in any slot. By default, VoLTE will be active. If it is not, you can change the network preferences from Network option in settings.


    1. Go to Settings > Call Settings (Sim and Network)
    2. Tap Cellular networks > Enable Voice over LTE On/ Off.

    Alternatively, you can follow a much easier way:


    1. You can simply dial *#*#4636#*#* 
    2. Choose Phone information.
    3. Click " Phone Information" and Toggle VOLTE Provisioned.
    4. Restart the phone and you are done.
