Jcase Lets You Root Your Oppo N1 with Only an APK

Earlier today, we covered a relatively simple root method for the . Unfortunately, however, that root method wasn’t exactly ideal, as it used the kingoroot root method to do the heavy lifting. And in addition to the potential hazards of that approach, it offered no real advantages over installing TWRP by Senior Recognized Developer Dees_Troy and then flashing Senior Recognized Developer Chainfire‘s SuperSU.

Now, however, XDA Senior Recognized Developer jcase presents a simple exploit-based root method based on research conducted by Saurik and Giantpune. The tool lets you achieve root on your N1 by simply installing and executing the provided APK. Once that is done,  you wait one minute, install SuperSU from Google Play, and uninstall the APK using ADB (or a terminal emulator).

If simple root access is what you’re after and you don’t need to have the power and versatility of a custom recovery, jcase’s root exploit is your best bet for achieving root on the Oppo N1 simply and easily. Make your way over to the original thread to get started.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends.
