The Newman N2 smartphone was released back in January this year, spotting a 4.7-inch display powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 chipset and 1 GB RAM. Like any other Android devices, the Newman N2 can be easily rooted using the Framaroot app through the Sam / Frodo / Legolas or Aragorn exploit. This will then enable you to install custom ROMs and other root only apps on your device. If you’re interested, then read on to find out how to root the Newman N2.
Before we begin, I would like to warn you that during the process of rooting, there is a risk of bricking your own device. So if you still want to proceed, you’ll be doing it at your own risk and we will hold no responsible for any form of damage on your device. Its a good practice for you to backup your device to an external source apart from your own SD Card.
