Android is one of the most popular Linux based operating systems. There are billions of application available at google play store which you can install on your android device. Due to the increase in the popularity and demand, developers have built android emulators (like BlueStacks, Memu) which allow us to run Android apps on our Windows or Mac computers.
Android is Linux based so there are many tweaks which you can make your device more powerful. All of these advanced tweaks require a rooted device so that the root app can tweak the internal files of your device.
There are many sites across the web from where you can easily learn ‘how to root an Android device’. Here in this guide, I am going to guide you for ‘how to root BlueStacks 2, 3, 4 Latest version with 2 different methods’.

You can download the pre-rooted bluestacks. This is an offline installed that means you do not need to have internet connection for installing the emulator. Download free offline pre-rooted bluestacks
How to verify whether your BlueStacks rooted or not
There are several android apps at the Google play store for checking root access in your Android device. Follow the below guide:
- First of all, download root checker from play store.
- And then install the app in your bluestacks emulator.
- Now open the root checker app.
- And then tap on the “verify root access” button.
- And now, wait until the app checks for root access. If the root checker prompts you to grant root access permission. Then tap on “Grant” option.
- That’s it. You can see something like below screenshot.
If the root checker app does not prompt you for granting root permission that means your emulator is not rooted yet. I will recommend you to download offline pre-rooted BlueStacks (if you are not able to apply the root tutorial).
