Android rooting, in layman terms, is synonymous to saying “journey to the center of the earth”. It is like being a psychologist and trying to drill into the minds of people.
Talking about it in the language of a techno freak, it is simply getting into your Android Smartphone, breaking all those limitations set by the manufacturer, and getting the power to run apps which require administrator privileges, and carrying out operations which are otherwise aloof . So, android rooting is simply the key to open those closed locks. In other words, it is equivalent to diving into the roots of your OS, and making any changes that you want.
But, the million dollar question here is, whether to play with this fire or not?
Is it a forbidden fruit?
As said a coin has two sides, android rooting does have too.
- To be able to ingress various apps like superuser, which lets you control what apps have the key to the root system.
- One can easily tether wifi and use android as a hot spot and that too for free; thus eliminating the hassles pay your service provider.
- Remove the default games and apps which have resided in your phone using up much needed memory and processing.
- Custom ROMs are yet another cherry which give you the au courant platform features which include from boosting that processing speed to giving your phone a complete makeover.
- Give your apps their right home to live, the memory card and not the phone memory. And, the answer to it lies in rooting.
- Although rooting is powerful, but at the same time power corrupts the absolute!
- Once you have touched the forbidden fruit, rooting, your phone warranty at that instant becomes void. It is just like playing with fire, and burning your hands!
- A rooting gone bad is like a suicide bomber on your side. Once, the rooting goes wrong your phone becomes a dead piece, as dead as dodo.
- Another disadvantage is that it mars the phone with viruses, and kills the immunity of your phone in return.
It is at your disposal to decide whether you want to root the phone or not. It is like an unknown adventure, the road less travelled. You might get power but at the same time you face a risk of literally killing your own phone. Let us know below…
