How To Root Bluestacks App Player


If you ever had a chance to take your Android experience to a desktop PC, you must be well aware of Bluestacks App Player, but just in case you’ve no idea, let me tell you a little bit about this great application. Bluestacks App Player is an Android Emulator, that acts as a virtual Android device on your desktop PC, the software is available for different platforms like Windows and  MAC OSX.

The greatest advantage of Bluestacks is, you don’t need any Android device and yet you can experience the best you will on a real device. Bluestacks has no compatibility issues with any applications, it always runs the latest and greatest version of Android available around.

You can simply add your Gmail account on Bluestacks, set up Google Play Store and install applications straight to your Emulator. Apart from that, you can also install Android applications in Bluestacks using APK files, just like you do on a real Android device.

A question might come upon your mind, why would you use Bluestacks and use Android on a PC instead of using it on an Android device, well, half of it is already answered above but if you only want to get convinced, Bluestacks, at first will let you experience your favorite applications on a big screen, there won’t be any storage limits, there won’t be compatibility issues with the Android version, there won’t be any hiccups here and there that will interrupt your smooth use with Bluestacks.

All you need is, you need a computer that is capable of running Bluestacks App Player flawlessly. There are so many others reasons as well but I guess, for now, these are enough.

That was all about Bluestacks, let’s talk a little about unleashing the true power of an Android device now. You can always cross the boundaries set by the device manufacturers by rooting it, once you’re done, you can load a plethora of root applications and make your device fly high.

Rooting allows you to make a number of tweaks on your device that are normally not possible at all, but you will definitely require Android running on a device to attain root access, right? Well, not! You can also root the Bluestacks app player and unleash that power of Android on your Windows, laptop, desktop PC or a MAC device. Wondering how you can do so?

It’s time to get back to our topic for that now. We are going to install the pre-rooted Bluestacks App Player in the succeeding post. Once you’ve installed this rooted version of Bluestacks, you’re free to modify your virtual Android device the way you want, make tweaks to it, and enjoy the cool features that the root applications usually pack up.How To Root Bluestacks App Player

The pre-rooted version of Bluestacks is powered up with Android 4.4.2 KitKat. You will have an Android tablet’s experience on your target device by installing this pre-rooted version of Bluestacks. Obviously, there’s a number of methods to root Bluestacks, but our priority is to find out the best and the easiest one in order to keep our viewers away from any kind of complexity. Let’s learn how to install pre-rooted Bluestacks App Player now.

Before you install Pre-rooted BlueStacks

Make sure that while you uninstall your old Bluestacks, you do not remove its data. In case you loose your data, you won’t be able to enjoy Google Play Store inside the rooted Bluestacks. You may install Play Store using the apk file, grab it from out site here. But there aren’t any good chances that this will actually work as smooth as it will do from your old data.

Another drawback of having no play store in Bluestacks is, you will be only left with one option to install applications and that is using an APK file.  Alternatively, you can also use the cloud connect option in Bluestacks and sync all of the applications installed on your Android device with your PC running the Bluestacks. You may not actually worry about these drawbacks as these are not a big deal when there’s quite a lot to mess with on a rooted emulator.
