All you need to know about Android Rooting

You probably have heard about the iPhone jailbreak. Rooting is jailbreaking for Androids which allows users to dive deeper into a phone’s sub-system. It’ll allow you to access the entire operating system and be able to customize just about anything on your Android. If you gain root access, you can bypass any restrictions that your manufacturer or carrier may have applied. Moreover, you can run more apps than before, overclock your processor, and use custom Rom.

Rooting an Android phone allows Android users to boost their handset’s operating performance, install non-approved applications and otherwise modify their phones to their liking. Often inexperienced users are likely to “brick” their phones (make them useless by modifying them incorrectly) if they try the rooting procedure without following proper guidelines. You should root and Android phone carefully, as it normally void the phone’s warranty.

Why do you need root?

There are many advantages of rooting Android devices and some of them are as follows:
  • You can access and modify system files and apps in the OS.
  • You can install many special apps from Google Play Store which require rooting.
  • You can flash custom ROM (i.e. install 3rd party firmware to enjoy the latest Android version).
  • You can remove preinstalled crapware i.e. useless OEM apps.
  • You can install carrier blocked as well as incompatible apps.
  • You can unlock many hidden Android features that were blocked by the mobile company.
  • You can increase device performance, improve battery life, etc using special apps.
In other words, Your Android Devices System is in Your Hand.

Why not go for Root?

Everything has its advantages and disadvantages. If you are planning to root your Android mobile phone or tablet, you should remember the following things:
  • Rooting your Android device will void the warranty.
  • You might not be able to receive OTA (over-the-air) updates from your carrier after rooting.
  • Rooting can brick your Android device i.e. it'll not turn on.
NOTE - Normally rooting doesn't brick your Android device but installing incompatible custom ROMs can damage your phone.
