Why You Should Root Your Android? (Complete Guide)

share on:
Rooting an Android smartphone/tablet has always been
something that tech-savvy people do rather than people without much knowledge
in that area. Same thing with Jail-breaking an Apple device. But why is that
really?

Well! Wikipedia Say’s “Rooting is the process of
allowing users of smartphones, tablets and other devices running the Android
mobile operating system to attain privileged control (known as root access)
over various Android subsystems. As Android uses the Linux kernel, rooting an
Android device gives similar access to administrative (super user) permissions
as on Linux or any other Unix-like operating system such as FreeBSD or OS
X.”

Update: Root Samsung Galaxy s7 & s7 edge

 

So what does ‘Rooting an Android device actually mean?

Rooting or Unlocking an Android phone/tablet means giving
yourself “Super User Right” or ‘Administration rights’. This means
after rooting or unlocking your android you’re able to Edit, Customize &
Patch the system files which, usually, wouldn’t be accessible to normal users.
You’re basically razing about the restriction walls of
Android firmware. It’s similar to Jail-breaking an Apple device or changing from
a normal user to an administrator on a Windows.

Does The Warrant will Void After Rooting?

Answer is YES! Rooting your Android phone basically voids
the warranty!
But, luckily, It’s just Piece of cake to “Un-ROOT” a
device and come back to Stock Firmware by flashing stock ROM which is distributed
by manufacturer of your phone. After doing that, your device won’t show any
sign that it used to be rooted, thus making you eligible for any warranty
claims.

What is the Benefits of having Android Rooted Phone/Tablet?

Having “Super User Rights” opens up many new possibilities to customize your device and improve your Android performance & experience. You Can change user interface, Customize you inner interface to others manufactures design. for example like:

Kernel, for example. If anything goes wrong, just use your Nandroid backup to

  • Automate everything
When it comes to automation, Tasker is the one and only app. With Tasker, you can automate just about anything. It also works on non-rooted devices, but with less automation options. It kind of follows the same logic as the online tool If This Then That (IFTTT) but in a much more sophisticated way.
  • Track Your Device even after Someone Makes a Factory Reset
If you loose your phone, more so if it has stolen by pesky thief
There are actually a ways to prevent your phone from being lost or stolen and to track it even without installed anti-theft app, but problem is they’re more or less detectable. That means, someone, who stole your device, can simply do a factory reset or uninstall any tracking apps


However, with root access, you are able to install a tracking app, such as Cerberus, deep into your system. This way, Cerberus will even survive a factory reset. only if the phone hadn’t been flashed with new firmware. You can even flash a disguised version of the app so that it’s completely hidden in the app drawer. This Apps Is Really GOOD
