If you want to gain full control over your Android device, you may need to root it. Rooting is the process of unlocking the bootloader and gaining superuser access to your device. This allows you to install custom ROMs, remove bloatware, tweak system settings, and more. However, rooting can also void your warranty, brick your device, or expose it to security risks. Therefore, you should only root your device if you know what you are doing and at your own risk.
One of the easiest and safest ways to root your Android device is to use Bin4ry v 28. Bin4ry is a tool that can root many Android phones or tablets running Android version 4.0.x ICS or 4.1.x / 4.2.x Jelly Bean[^1^]. It works by exploiting a vulnerability in the restore function of the Android system. Bin4ry can root your device without wiping any data or requiring a PC connection.
In this article, we will show you how to download and use Bin4ry v 28 to root your Android device. Follow these steps carefully and make sure you have a backup of your important data before proceeding.
Step 1: Download Bin4ry v 28
The first step is to download the Bin4ry v 28 zip file from this link[^2^]. The file size is about 9 MB and it contains the Bin4ry executable file and some other files needed for the rooting process.
Step 2: Extract Bin4ry v 28
The next step is to extract the Bin4ry v 28 zip file using any decompressing application such as 7zip, winzip, winrar, unzip, etc. You can extract it to any folder on your PC or directly to your device's internal storage or SD card.
Step 3: Enable USB Debugging Mode
The third step is to enable USB debugging mode on your device. This mode allows your device to communicate with your PC via USB cable. To enable USB debugging mode, go to Settings > Development options > USB debugging or Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging and check the box. If you don't see the Development options menu, you may need to tap on Build number several times in Settings > About phone until it says \"You are now a developer\".
Step 4: Connect Your Device to Your PC
The fourth step is to connect your device to your PC using a USB cable. Make sure your device is recognized by your PC and that the drivers are installed correctly. You can find some drivers for different devices on this page[^1^].
Step 5: Run Bin4ry v 28
The fifth step is to run the Bin4ry v 28 executable file on your PC. If you are using Windows, double click on the RunMe.bat file. If you are using Linux, run ./Runme.sh in a terminal. You will see a command prompt window with some instructions and options.
Select the correct mode for your device by typing the number and pressing Enter. Normally, most users should run option 1 (Normal mode). However, some devices may require option 2 (Special mode) or option 3 (Goroh_kun mode). You can find out which mode works for your device by searching online or checking this list[^1^].
For example, Xperia phones with older firmware = Normal mode; Sony Tablet and similar = Special mode; Xperia phones with JB Firmware = Mode 3 (Goroh_kun mode).
Step 6: Follow the Instructions
The sixth step is to follow the instructions on the screen carefully. Depending on the mode you selected, you may need to do some actions on your device such as restoring a backup or pressing some buttons. Wait for the process to finish and do not disconnect or turn off your device until it reboots.
