Now we have talked enough, let’s discuss what is Rooting and some of its merits and demerits.
What do you mean by Root?
Rooting means nothing but getting permission to make changes in your system files. As the name suggests, once you root your device you can go into the root directory of your device and make whatever changes you want.
If the device is stock and un-rooted then by default you are not allowed to make any changes in the admin directory of your device but once the device is rooted you break the wall that is preventing your to access the root of your android device.
After rooting a device, a user can do lots of different things like installing custom ROMs, Flash zip files, installing hacks, Xposed framework, etc. However, you must know that a rooted device attracts viruses more quickly than an unrooted device.
Merits of Rooting
Once your device is rooted you start feeling the difference, your device will become smoother than before and more responsive. You will like that you are using a completely brand-new device.
Flash Custom ROMs
Most of the users root their device because of one big reason and that is installing and trying different custom ROMs. Even if I talk about myself I rooted my first device when I was 14 years old and at that time Android devices were very new. So, it was a fun experience for me to root the device and flash ROMs, however, now things are way easier than at that time.
Installing Custom Recovery
Having a custom recovery installed on an Android device is very important nowadays because with a custom recovery you will face a lot of difficulties in flashing flashable zip files or even custom ROM.
Demerits of Rooting
The biggest reason why some people avoid rooting their device is because of warranty void. I want to make it very clear that once your device is rooted you won’t be able to get your warranty back and this is the major drawback of rooting a device. So, consider this point in your mind and then only proceed.
No more OTA
Once the device is rooted you have to say good back to all your OTA(over-the-air) updates. You will see no more notification of OTA update but that’s not a big deal as you can install the update manually also. It just that the process will no more be automatic as it was before rooting the device.
NeedAndroid.com will not take any responsibility for any kind of problem to occur in your device at the time of rooting. We are 100% sure that this article is well written without any errors. But, if you don’t follow it correctly then you will end up bricking your device. So, FOLLOW THIS GUIDE CAREFULLY!
