    Thanks for manual. What kind of system will I have after rooting? Is it english version? Will I be able to install google play store?

    • Wahyu Setyo Budi says:

      You will have the same system as before. This procedure will just gain a “root access” to your system.
      There will be no change to your phone’s system.

    Does The Phone Really Have To Reboot Itself? Cause Ive Waited Too Long

    • Wahyu Setyo Budi says:

      Yes it should reboot by itself, but you can force restart it if it doesn’t restart by itself and continue the procedure.
      It won’t interfere the rooting procedure though.

  8. Bryan says:

    After That,
