    Answered By Lajwati Subramanium | 9 months ago

    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.


    XDA Developers is a great site to help you with the process, support and Custom ROMs.
