What is root? Advantages and Disadvantages of root? How to root? Android is one of the most open, versatile, and customizable mobile operating systems out there. You may think you don’t need to root your phone, but you’d be surprised at how much more you can accomplish with a little work.
What is rooting means?
In simple words Rooting means of unlocking the operating system so you can install unapproved (by Google) apps, update the OS, replace the firmware, overclock the processor, customize just about anything, and so on.
Advantages of having root?
1. Custom Software (ROM’s)
You may have heard of people loading custom “ROM’s” on their devices. A “ROM” is the software that runs your device.There are many great custom ROM’s available that can make your Android device look and perform drastically different.The best place that I have found to find custom ROM’s for Android devices is the XDA Developers Forums. The XDA community is filled with smartphone enthusiasts and developers for the Android platform
2. Boost Your Phone’s Speed and Battery Life
For example, with an app like SetCPU you can overclock your phone for better performance, or underclock it for better battery life. You can also use an app like Greenify to automatically hibernate apps you aren’t using—perfect for those apps that always want to run in the background when you’re not looking.
If you aren’t rooted, you can back up a few things like apps and data, but you won’t necessarily be able to backup system apps and their data, or automate the entire process as well as Titanium Backup can.
4. Block Ads in your android device
we of all people understand the need for occasional ads—it’s how we make money. But ads can also get in the way and use up data. If you want to block ads in certain apps or on certain devices, rooting is by far the best way to do so. AdFree, AdBlock Plus, and Ad Away are all great options
5. Create a Nandroid backup
If you flash something that breaks your phone, you can just flash back to your most recent nandroid backup to return everything to normal. This is different from using an app like Titanium Backup that just backs up apps and/or settings—nandroid backups backup the entire system as one image. Titanium backups are best when switching between ROMs or phones.
6. Remove Pre Installed System Apps.
You can also uninstall annoying, battery-draining, space-wasting crapware that comes preinstalled on so many phones these days—and, sadly, this feature is root-only. Freeze them first to make sure your phone operates normally without them, then delete them completely to free up that space by using Titanium backup or rootunistaller apps.
Disadvantage of rooting
1. Brick your android
To brick your phone is to break it during flashing or other acts. There is always a small risk with flashing, and if your phone becomes unable to function—that is, it basically becomes a brick—you’ve bricked your phone. The risk is very small, however, and more often than not people say “brick” when they really mean “it turns on but doesn’t boot properly,” which is a very fixable problem.
Frequently asked Q?
1.Can I unroot my phone?
Yes. If you decide you don’t like being rooted, you can often find instructions on unrooting your phone as well
2.Is rooting illegal?
No. Technically, it once was, but exceptions to the DCMA have made it legal
3.Will rooting void my warranty?
Yes. Unlocking your bootloader will void the warranty on your phone, even if your manufacturer provides a way for you to do it. That said, if you need warranty service for a hardware issue, you can sometimes unroot your phone and take it in for service with no one the wiser. However, some phones have a digital “switch” that flips when you unlock your phone that is very difficult or impossible to revert, so do your research before unlocking if you want to preserve your warranty.
How to root?
I am not responsible if you brick your device. If you blame me I will laugh at you
Unfortunately, every single phone is different, and rooting methods change every time that phone’s software updates. With so many Android phones out there, it’s become impossible for us to actually list rooting instructions here you can check it on xda developers website or try apps that you can use to root your device in just a few seconds without using pc..
