What is Android Rooting?

Android 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 and tasks including modifying, removing or deleting system files, Uninstalling 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.
