    Then close the welcome message and wait for a few seconds till a message reading: "Smart install has finished loading" appears on screen. Close this message as well.
    Now, click Install, followed by Normal Install to install busybox files, which might take about 2 minutes. These files are needed by some apps for proper root access and to perform advanced functions.
    Finally, a message box confirming that busybox was successfully installed appears on the screen. Quit this message and then exit the BusyBox app, which you can uninstall now if desired.

7.    Rooting process is now complete. Whenever an app or operation needs root access, a prompt requesting Super-User access appears on-screen. You can now opt to either give or deny access.
