 Rooting Android

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 (superuser) permissions as on Linux or any other Unix-like operating system such as FreeBSD or macOS.
Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices. Thus, rooting gives the ability (or permission) to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized applications (“apps”) that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user.
On Android, rooting can also facilitate the complete removal and replacement of the device’s operating system, usually with a more recent release of its current operating system.
Root access is sometimes compared to jailbreaking devices running the Apple iOS operating system. However, these are different concepts: Jailbreaking is the bypass of several types of Apple prohibitions for the end user, including modifying the operating system (enforced by a “locked bootloader”), installing non-officially approved applications via sideloading, and granting the user elevated administration-level privileges (rooting).
Many vendors such as HTC, Sony, Asus and Googleexplicitly provide the ability to unlock devices, and even replace the operating system entirely. Similarly, the ability to sideload applications is typically permissible on Android devices without root permissions. T
hus, it is primarily the third aspect of iOS jailbreaking (giving users administrative privileges) that most directly correlates to Android rooting

1. Install Custom ROMs

                                                 – After rooting your device, you can flash a custom ROM or Kernel, which means you can have a new device.
 
2. Remove Bloatware
                                                 – Manufacturer won’t allow you to uninstall those preinstalled apps on your device. Rooting a device can make them removed easily, which ensures a high running quality.
 
3. Block Ads 
                                               – Sick of the pop-up ads when playing games? A rooted device can remove this annoying ads immediately.
 
4. Install Incompatible Apps
                                                – Some wonderful apps need the root access if you install them on your device. Root your phone, enjoy more apps.
 
5. Keep Latest Android OS
                                                 – A rooted Android can get the new OS months before the carrier releases the update, often along with a few bonus features.
 
6. Change Skin for your Android
                                                    
                                                 –  As you can see, there are only 3 to 4 default skin on your device to change. But if you root your phone and install the new ROMs, you can enjoy the customized and tweaked skins on your device.
 
7. Boost Speed and Battery Life
                                                 
                                                  – Some powerful apps like Greenify can close the useless applications automatically, which can effectively improve your device’s performance. Of course, Greenify needs root access.
 
8. Make Complete Backups

                                                 – A unrooted Android phone can only backup some settings and apps of your device. Titanium can be used on rooted device to give you a complete backup.
 
rooting can make you be the master of your Android phone. 

Disadvantages of Rooting

1. Can Brick Your Device

                                                  – Compared with unrooted Android device, the rooted one faces a common threat from mis-operation and sometimes you may turn your Android device into a brick.
Avoid this risk: Just download apps from reliable place like Google play, and, do not delete the files if the files are suggested not to delete by rooting apps.
 
2. Void Warranty
                                                   – The Android device manufacturers will not cover the damage after you rooting your device. For some brand, we can unroot the device after rooting, so, the manufactures don’t know if you have rooted your Android device or not. But to make matters worse, Android device manufactures also go to great lengths to know if your device has been rooted!
 
3. Problems with Updates
                                                   – Sometimes you root Android phone to get latest OS but after rooting, you may find that the automatic updates to the firmware stopped. Updates fail to install due to software modifications that occurred while the distribution has been rooted.
