Every phone have a security feature which void your access to their operating
system . Here In this post I am going to give a easy way to Root your Android mobile device .
Before We start with this you may have many questions in your mind let me just clear them in one shot!. Before writing this post I have taken reference from many resources on the web to give you complete knowledge about Rooting.
What is Rooting?
“Rooting” your device means obtaining or gaining access to “superuser” rights and permissions to your Android’s software installed on your device. With these elevated user privileges, you gain the ability to load custom software ( like ROM’s) or install custom themes, increase your overall phone performance, increase battery life by making adjustments, and the ability to install software that would otherwise cost extra money (ex: WiFi tethering or any premium software). Rooting is essentially for “hacking” your Android device.
Why its called Rooting on Android?
- Install Custom Software (ROM’s)
A “ROM” is the software that runs your device. It is stored in the “Read Only Memory” of your device.With a custom ROM, you could load up the latest and greatest available Android versions and bring that antiquated device up to par with some of the newer ones.The best place that I have found to find custom ROM’s for Android devices is the XDA Developers Forums
Increase Kernel , speed & battery Life.
There are many custom ROM’s and apps available for rooted devices that will allow you to drastically improve the performance (speed) and also extend battery life on your device. A lot of developers tweak the kernels (layer of code that handles communication between the hardware and software) for added performance, battery life
- Unlocking Additional Features
Enabling free WiFi and USB tethering, which many carriers charge more money otherwise. I am not suggesting you do this you may try something different. But it is possible to do this. However, your carrier may catch on to the fact that you are using your device as a free WiFi hotspot and figure out a way to charge you for it.So use this feature at your own risk.
