DO you want unlimited control over your phone? Android Rooting is a process that lets you access all the settings and sub-settings in your phone, which means your phone is truly your own and you can install and uninstall anything you want. Like other mobile OS, Android limits the app working in the sandbox, to protect your Android device from threats as well as exploitation.
On a regular Android device, you do not have root access, but the root user always exists in the system. You can not access to the root user with any built-in feature, so “rooting” is an only way to access and use the root user account.
Android rooting opens up a world of possibility, but it can also void your warranty, leave you with a broken smartphone, or worse. It isn’t for the faint of heart. With a rooted phone, you can remove bloatware, speed up your processor, and customize every element of your phone software’s appearance.
If you’ve ever interacted with an IT professional, you know that backing up your data is one of the most important things you can do. When rooting your phone, this is particularly important on the off-chance something goes wrong, or if you change your mind. (Rooting can be reversed.) You can back up your Android device in a number of ways, using Google’s own tools or third-party apps.
In terms of some manufacturers, you will lose warranty of the device if it’s rooted.
The root process is not actually damaging the hardware.
You are also able to unroot the device by just restore the stock
firmware, and manufacturers will not able to know
if it’s been rooted or not. Basically, rooting is a safe process,
but if you mess something up, then you can’t expect a
free fix from warranty service. So make sure
you clearly know what you will do in the next step
or know how to restore your Android device in case it got errors.
Rooting is a Simple and quick process, but there is no standard way to root all devices. I will list a few popular tools that will help you root your Android device quickly and safety. If your Android device is not supported, visit XDA Developers forums, find your device on the sub-forum with your specific model for solutions.
CFRoot, an unlocking utility by developer Chainfire, isn’t the easiest way to root your Android smartphone, but it’s one of the most stable. It works on over 300 devices, and provides step-by-step instructions that make the rooting process as seamless as it possibly could be.
You will need to download the appropriate ZIP file for your device.
Once you have done that, follow these steps:
Towelroot is one of the most hands-off ways to achieve root. It works on most Android devices, but not all of them — some Motorola and HTC devices are not compatible. And it will only work with devices that have a kernel build date earlier than June 3, 2014. (You can check yours by pulling up Settings > About phone and scrolling down to Kernel version.)
To use Towelroot, you will have to enable your device to install apps from unknown sources (see above). Once you have done that, you are ready to move onto the next step.
You will need to download an app to make sure your
device has been successfully rooted. There are several
apps available on the Google Play store that,
when downloaded, will tell you if you have super-user
permission — a telltale sign you have succeeded.
Root Checker is a popular one — simply installing
and running it will tell you if your phone has super-user
As we said, rooting means you have complete control over your phone so that you can view and modify even the deepest settings and access special apps designed just for rooted phones. These apps include ad-blockers and robust security and backup utilities. You can also customize your phone with themes and colors, and even change button configurations, depending on the rooted OS version you choose (more on that in a minute).
SuperSU app will help you to control the app permissions and accesses. However, it also has a great feature, allow you to do full unroot a rooted device. Go to Settings and select Full Unroot option and your Android device is definitely fully restored.
