How To Run Root Apps On Unrooted Android Device

What once seemed a far fetched scenario has now become a reality. With the help of a simulator app called VMOS, you could now run various root apps on unrooted Android devices. Refer to the instructions given in this guide to know more.

What is VMOS

VMOS is a virtual machine that allows you to run the Android OS inside your primary Android device. It is similar to VMware for PC or Android Developer Studio provided by Google. VMOS contains the entire Android system, based on Android Lollipop (5.1.1) within itself. You just have to run it as any other normal APK and let the app do the rest.

The best part about this application is whatever action you perform, it remains within this app only. It will have no effect as such on your device. In case if something happens to your device, i.e. by installing a rooted app or for any reason whatsoever, simply uninstall VMOS.

So let us now have a look at what all could be done using this app. But before downloading the app, have a look at the requirements needed for this app to run. Please make sure that your device meets these requirements, otherwise, you may experience lags while using the app.

  • Android Version Required: Android 5.1.1 or above





VMOS creates a working Android environment, with pre-installed apps such as Google Apps, Contacts, Call Logs, Browser, Downloads, File Browser, etc. It runs on Android 5.1.1 as a native OS with all its functions, features, UI exactly similar to what the native Android provided.
