Meaning Of Rooting Android Phone And The Benefits Of Rooting


In this post, I will discuss some aspects of rooting your Android phone and the benefits that come with it. Maybe you've heard about "rooting" a phone from a friend or read about it somewhere on the Internet.  Maybe you even *kind of* know what it is but aren't sure what you can do with it. Or maybe you are already running a rooted phone and looking for more ways you can utilize it. Whatever the case may be, this article will be of help to you.



What Is Rooting?
First, for the newbies, let me clarify what rooting is. Getting root or rooting your phone is the process of modifying the operating system that shipped with your device to grant you complete control over it.
This means you can overcome limitations that the carriers and manufacturers put on your phone, extend system functionality, and even upgrade it to a custom flavor of Android.
The name root comes from the Linux operating system world, where the most privileged user on the system (otherwise known as Administrator on Windows) is called root.
Rooting is the process of allowing users of Smartphone, tablets and other devices running the Android mobile operating system to attain privileged control (known as root access) over various Android's subsystems. As Android uses the Linux kernel, rooting an Android device gives similar access to administrative permissions as on Linux or any other Unix-like operating system such as FreeBSD or OS X.
Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices. Thus, rooting gives the ability (or permission) to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized apps that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user. On Android, rooting can also facilitate the complete removal and replacement of the device's operating system, usually with a more recent release of its current operating system.
Root access is sometimes compared to jailbreaking devices running the Apple iOS operating system.

 

Benefits

Benefits of rooting include the possibility for complete control over the look and feel of the device. As a superuser has access to the device's system files, all aspects of the operating system can be customized with the only real limitation being the level of coding expertise. Immediately expectable advantages of rooted devices include the following:
· Full theming capabilities, meaning that everything can be changed and themed from the color of the battery indicator, to the look of the dialer or contact list, to the video that plays while the device boots up.
·   Full control of the CPU and kernel
· Full application control, including the ability to backup, restore, or batch edit applications, or to remove bloatware that comes pre-loaded on many phones.
· Processes can be automated on the device through the use of applications such as Tasker.
· Ability to install a custom firmware (also known as a custom ROM) that allows additional levels of control on a rooted device. As Android is open source, anyone with the proper skills can create their own customized version
There are lots of benefits of rooting Android phone, you can also Google it by yourself to get more.
