Benifits of rooting android

Android mobile applications have seen a tremendous burst of android development activity with its ever-increasing scope, popularity and range. The functionality of your phone can be extended by upgrading or by rooting it. Let us know what is rooting and what are the advantages of doing so with your mobile.

What is Rooting?
Rooting of an Android device is similar to jail breaking of iPhone. Rooting gains you access as a super-user on the Android platform. 

Rooting your phone implies taking complete control of your phone by modifying the operating system that originally shipped with it. A program called SU (super user) when uploaded on the device provides root access to programs. SU manages this by exploiting vulnerability in the operating system code or device drivers. Needless to say, manufacturers do not approve the process of rooting. The advantages of rooting your Android device are enumerated below.

So root! Once you do, you can download and install any number of custom-built ROMs (different versions of the Android firmware). Some of them are highly customized and tweaked to add features, and others are basically just stock Android. Cleaning off an ugly skin can be like a breath of fresh air.


More apps and games

A large number of Apps on the play store work with rooted phone. 
If your device is rooted You can enjoy most of games and apps from market place, as you upgraded your phone to latest os by custom ROM. 

Customized Stable Android OS

Android devices are not bound to its original OS. You can customize the OS to suit your needs.( Prefer Latest One ). The more popular devices have more customized, after-market OSes. Rooting gives you full control over Android and you can alter system files, use themes, change boot images, delete apps that you do not want. For example, HTC Desire has more than 20 customized OSes that allow among other things saving apps to an SD, adding Arabic support, and removing SenseUI completely.


As said above you can really perform tweaks that really increase the functionality. Like you could adjust the resolution of your screen. Record your screen and make a video or if it.

Uninstall Pre Installed Apps

If your phone is rooted then get rid of pre installed apps by uninstlling them by using Uninstaller apps like UNINSTALL MASTER. 
By uninstalling you can speed up your ROM and Internal memory. 

Backup and restore your ROM

Rooting gives you the ability to back-up your entire device image onto an SD card, which can be restored later if required. This allows trying out different OS on your phone. If you want to try a new ROM (modified, after-market OS), you can back-up your phone, erase it completely, and then flash the new ROM. If you are not satisfied with the new ROM, you can restore your phone to the old image from the backup.

ROM Space

Sometimes you may reach the maximum storage limit on your device. To overcome this hitch, you need to enable most applications to become movable to an SD. Tools like CyanogenMod, the popular Android custom ROM, enable the user to transfer most apps to SD even if the Android developers of those apps have not enabled this feature.
Apps Requiring Rooting
Some Android apps specifically require rooting. A tool like ROM Manager requires rooting to flash ROMs from SD card to your phone. Similarly, setCPU is another root-requiring app that helps you to under/overclock the device

Better Battery Life

The most ever problem facing by all smart phone users are its low battery life. Rooting your device gave a little bit relief from this problem. As i mention earlier you can manage all of your apps after rooting your device. There are lot of unwanted apps installed on your device, which were eating half portion of your battery charge. By managing these sucking apps you can achieve more battery life. I don't think that rooting can perform outstanding magic on your device but surely earns you few more hours.


Ensure that you follow the instructions carefully when rooting a branded or locked device. Improper execution may result in a bricked phone - a bricked phone is one where the firmware is damaged or a software error has occurred rendering the device unusable in any capacity. In some instances, the phone can be usable through a ROM flash.


Customized Android ROMs have evolved from being simple tweaks earlier to allow advanced full access controls covering most of Android phones today. Hyper-optimized versions and CPU overclocking can make your phone incredible swift. The best way to get started is to Google for information on rooting your phone by the search string "<phone name> custom ROM."
