Rooting means you have root access to your device—that is, it can run the sudo command, and has enhanced privileges allowing it to run apps like Wireless Tether or SetCPU. You can root either by installing the Superuser application or by flashing a custom ROM that includes root access.So, in simple words it means that by rooting and android device we can access everything that our phone provider do not allow us.
The easiest way to use KingoRoot is to install the app version, which literally performs the root process with just one tap.In fact, the only complicated part is actually getting that app onto your Android device. That’s because it’s not available in the Google Play Store; instead, you must download the KingoRoot APK and manually install it. This is the best and easiest way to root a device.
1. Installation of Rom
You can install a custom ROM or Kernel after you root you device, which essentially means you get a new device software-wise. In fact, this is often the biggest reason for people to root their devices. Custom ROMs offer several performance fixes and tweaks to your system, and are typically more user-friendly than stock ones. They are optimized for battery and performance and update more frequently than stock ROMS do.Meanwhile, we can increase our phone’s ROM.
2. Removing Pre-installed apps on Phone
Every Android phones comes with a bunch of apps directly from the manufacturer. Some of them are good, but most of them are plain useless, if not worse, and you cannot even remove them. Once you root your device, however, all those apps can go away and you can get the most out of your machine. This will help us to increase ROM.
3. Hacking Wi-Fi
So, one of the most advantage of rooting a device means that we can Hack any wi-fi near us by using some apps available on playstore.
No more warranty
One of the big disadvantage of rooting Android is the fact that you lose your device warranty. Device makers will not cover damage caused after you root the device or if you realize that the phone was bricked while it was being rooted. In some devices, you can still unroot the device after rooting so that device makers do not know whether you rooted it or not. On the other hand, device makers can go to great extents to find out the truth about your device. For most users, your phone warranty is pretty much permanently voided once you root your phone. So, Please never root your phone.
No More Update
A good thing about unrooted Android devices is that the system update, no matter how late it comes, will definitely install and work well. The risk with rooted devices is that this may not happen. You may find that automated firmware updates may not be working. In some cases, updates will not install because of software modifications made during the rooting process itself. This is also so bad.
Device software can Dead
One of the most common threats to a rooted Android device is misoperation, which could turn your device into an expensive, unusable brick. To avoid this, you should always get your apps from reliable sources, like Google Play, and do not delete files that rooting apps suggest not to delete. The risk of ending up bricking your phone is even greater if you are new to rooting. You can find some pretty detailed tutorials on the internet to root your device, but it can still be a daunting task. If you flash a corrupt zip file or miss any step, you will likely end up with a bricked device. If this happens, you will have to either get your device fixed at the manufacturer’s service center or, if you are a power user, fix it yourself. If you opt for the first option, you will face the second big disadvantage of rooting an Android device. Bricking is a dreaded term in the rooting world. Although there are ways to fix it, it can be surprising easy to brick a device. So this is also a very bad effect on our phone.
Now that you know the pros and cons of rooting Android, you should be able to make an informed decision on whether it is worth the hassle and risks or not. It all depends on how much risk you are willing to take, the kind of usage you have with your phone, and what your expectations are. If you choose to root, root with caution.
You may have also noted that some of the pros and cons are very similar to each other. That is, in fact, the greatest benefit and downside of Android itself. It gives you immense power, but you also have to be careful with that power. Your decision should be based on your answers to these questions:
- Are you willing to risk facing and trying to fix the disadvantages of rooting your device?
- Have you made a backup for your device before it is attempted to be rooted?
- Have you done enough research online to find out how to root your specific device?
If your answer to these three questions is a ‘yes’, then you should be ready to handle rooting your Android device and facing the consequences and benefits. If your answer is ‘no’ to two or all three questions, then you should probably think a few more times before you take the leap. Or leave out rooting your device altogether.
I will never recommend you to root your device.
