This process will work with literally every android device out there. so lets get started.

To check if your android device is rooted or not, install and open Root checker app from Play Store. When you open the app, you’ll see that if your device is rooted or not. If your device is not rooted at this momemnt you can continue root your android device by following these steps:
Step 1. Visit this link to download the SuperSu.zip file on your Android device directly. It’s the file that’ll root your device and this file will work on almost every android device.
Step 2. Now that you have downloaded the zip file to your device. Just turn off your device and boot into device custome recovery. If your device doesn’t have custom recovery installed please read how to install custom recovery on android devices
Step 3. Once device is turned off completely, boot into custom recovery by pressing Vol+ with Home buttom and Power button at the same time. Once you see the boot animation release the buttons, and it will take you to the custom recovery.
Step 4. My device is running of TWRP recovery. There are other popular custom recovery like CWM or clockworkMod recovery, so its very much possible that your device is running of CWM recovery. But either ways the process from now on is same no matter what device you have or which custom recovery your device is running on.
Step 5. Next, head over to the install option in your custom recovery which is usually located at the top and locate the SuperSu.zip file that you just downloaded.
Step 6. We downloaded it directly on our android device so it must be in our download folder. Once located the SuperSu.zip select it and flash it on your device. The custom recovery will flash the file on your android device which will take few seconds.
Step 7. Once the SuperSu.zip (root package) is flashed hit the reboot button or restart your device. Well if you have followed the instructions carefully and supersu.zip was flashed sucessfully, you will see a new app in the list called SuperSu, which shows that your device has just got root access.
Step 8. Now open the SuperSu app. If it shows that there are no binary issues, the process is successful.
To check the root access, again open the Root checker app when prompted, grant the root permissions and it will display if your device is rooted or not (obviously rooted).
