WHAT IS ROOTING?
Rooting is a term which is mostly used by computer and mobile technicians. It is a process by which one can get administrative control and function of an operating system.
By rooting your Android phone means you are giving yourself the permission to act like the controller of the phone.
BENEFITS OF ROOTING YOUR ANDROID DEVICE:
There are many reasons that’s why people want to do this but few salient reasons of rooting android devices are given below:
- 1. FREE YOUR MOBILE FROM UNWANTED APPS:
Rooting will help you to delete some unwanted apps that were installed by the manufacturer and will put your device on diet. Rooting will help administrator to get full control over applications so you can easily reduce memory space by uninstalling undesirable apps. It also helps to save battery life by stopping some system processes.
- 2. IMPROVING BACKUPS:
Rooting will improve backups and restore options. The most frequently used software for rooting is “Titanium Backup” and it is fundamental when you are going to play with any Android software. It is better to create a complete backup of your device once it is rooted so you can restore anything.
- 3. UPDATED ANDROID VERSION:
Another benefit of rooting is that it will help to install different versions of Android. Rooting will open door to get Android updates much faster as developers have ported latest updates to different devices but you won’t receive manufacturer’s official Android version.
