Everything About Rooting – Andro Root

What is Rooting?

Rooting is the process of allowing users of smartphones, tablets and other devices running the Android os to gain privileged control (known as root access) over various Android subsystems.Rooting lets all user-installed applications run privileged commands typically unavailable to the devices in the stock configuration. Rooting is required for more advanced and potentially dangerous operations including modifying or deleting system files, removing pre-installed applications, and low-level access to the hardware itself (rebooting, controlling status lights, or recalibrating touch inputs.) A typical rooting installation also installs the Superuser application, which supervises applications(as explained above in What is Superuser?) that are granted root or superuser rights by requesting approval from the user before granting said permissions. A secondary operation, unlocking the device’s bootloader verification, is required to remove or replace the installed operating system.


Why Rooting is Performed?

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 applications 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.
