How do IP address changes work?

By toggling Airplane mode, but make sure the Android device itself is connected to the Internet via a SIM card. After toggling Airplane mode back off, your mobile operator will issue you a new IP address.

Please note: if the device is connected to Wi-Fi and you toggle on Airplane mode, then your Wi-Fi’s IP won’t change. Changing the IP address works only when the device has mobile Internet.

What is root access?

Root- is a “superuser”. The rooted iProxy app can remotely control a device: toggle the Airplane mode, restart the phone.

The iProxy application also works great on non-rooted devices: it can remotely toggle Airplane mode through a voice assistant or with the help of a clicker through the Macrodroid app. Read more about changing IP addresses remotely on rooted and non-rooted devices in this article.

How to obtain root access on an Android device?

Getting root access is no small feat. Each phone model has its own firmware and not all phones can be reflashed.

We’ve compiled a list of tested root-phones for iProxy along with instructions on how to obtain root access. The phones listed in the article are fairly easy to root.

Alcatel 1 5033d Android 8.1.0 is the most affordable phone in the CIS region, you can easily root it according to our Video instructions.
Buy in Ukraine :,
Buy in Europe :, and,
Buy a rooted Alcatel 1 5033d from the iProxy tech support : Telegram-support.

If your phone model isn’t on the list, then we don’t know for sure whether it can be rooted or not, and if it can, how complicated the process will be. Which is why we strongly recommend you turn to specialists that work in service centers/markets, lest you risk wasting precious time.

Please note: when rooting XiaoMi, you need to wait 7 to 14 days for the manufacturer to approve the flashing. Tip: check in advance with the specialist who will reflash your XiaoMi whether they know how to root without having to wait 7-14 days.

On the 4pda forum, you can look for rooting instructions for your specific phone model.

Can I buy a rooted Android device from you with a 100% working proxy?

Sure, contact our Telegram support. A phone with root access and the pre-installed iProxy app will cost you 5,990 rub. (as of February 28, 2022). We sell phones at cost price and flash them for free. The smartphones on offer have been tested by thousands of iProxy users, so you can be 100% sure of them.

Please note that once rooted, your phone will no longer be covered by the manufacturer's warranty. Also, if you attempt rooting your phone without following our instructions, you risk essentially turning it into a brick, meaning you won’t be able to install an OS on the phone or launch it, which is why we recommend hiring a specialist for such purposes.

If you still have questions, be sure to check out our FAQ section. We’re also always available in our Telegram chat.
