Assuming you have installed Remix OS on your system by following my guide in my previous post. And now you want to get the root privilege of various essential tools including Titanium Backup, Rom Explorer, Xposed Framework and more. Well, like others android OS, RemixOS is also rootable. OK, let's root our RemixOS, i'll show you how to do this using Linux Ubuntu (you can use Ubuntu LiveCD if you are windows user and still want to root using this method)

  1. Download this tool and extract it to your Desktop it will create RemixRoot folder.ubuntu desktop
  2. Copy system.img from your remix folder ,where ever you've installed it, to RemixRoot folder remix os installation
  3. Open terminal and type: sudo -i
  4. Type your password (you won't see what you are typing, this is normal)
  5. Change directory to RemixRoot folder by typing: cd /home/user_name/Desktop/RemixRoot  (Change user_name with your username)
