- Then download and extract the contents of the BlueStacks Tweaker onto a convenient location on your PC.
- Now launch the BlueStacks Tweaker app by executing its EXE file. Then click on the Force Kill BS button situated at the top right. This will close all the processes of Bluestack.
- Head over to the Root section of Bluestacks Tweaker and make sure both the ADB and BlueStacks are shown via the Red color light at the top-right. Then click on the Unlock button.
- The process will take a few minutes and once completed, it will display the Unlock: True message at the bottom bar.
- Now head over to the main section and click on the Start BS button. It will launch the Bluestack application.
