    Idk why my phone dont support colored emojis when its a jelly bean 4.3 , i thought androids from 4.1 & up has colored emoji.

    I mean when i download the keyboard it does shows clored emojis, but when i post something on fb, or instagram, twitter etc it shows black & white, also i want to see other post with color emojis.

    You don't actually send a emoji, you send the characters required to display the emoji, ":)" for example. Then the receivers phone translates that into the emoji that is installed on the receiving phone. Even if you select a special colorful emoji that you have installed on your phone, the receivers phone will only display the emoji's that are installed on the receiving phone.

    It is possible, but you need root.

    First you need to realize that root is dangerous and for advanced users. Not only will it void your warranty but it will allow you to do things that will completely break your phone. If you wish to proceed it you should go to the root section for your model/carrier and ask for help there.

    Awesome list for convenience.
