Maybe you all already know what people call rooting your phone. If you still don’t know, then you come to the right place, because here I am going to explain what root is and what benefits you can get from it.
For those who still don’t know about root, it is the process of modifying the operating system on your device to grant you complete control over it. It means that you can break the limit that the carriers or manufacturers put on your phone, as well as extending the functions of the system and even upgrading it to a custom flavor of Android that people call custom ROM.
The name of the “root” itself comes from the Linux OS world, where the most privileged user on the system, who is someone such as an Administrator on Windows OS, is called “root”. It is a bit strange, isn’t it? Well, don’t mind about the name, let’s go to the benefits that you can get by rooting your phone.
The benefits include gaining full control over Android, backing up the system, saving space on your phone, running special applications, and the last it the most popular that even many people consider itself as root, it is installing custom ROMs.
Well, quite interesting, isn’t it? However, the rooting activity is not something that is approved by carriers or manufacturers. It means that root comes with risks too. The worst risk of root is that it can brick your phone, making it nonfunctional.tags: Android, benefit, Linux, operating system, ROM, Root
