Android devices or Android platform as a whole provide excellent features to the user with smooth touch interface, superior performance, fluid interface and running numerous applications for any kind of need.
Though this flexibility is quite appreciable, an Android user is restricted from installing any kind of custom ROMs or applications which require additional system and hardware rights.
Android users don’t have any access to the flash memory chip in their stock configured devices and thus are not able to modify or revise the operating system itself. The Rooting process here enables the bringsthe freedom and the features within their reach.
Rooting is a process of permitting the users of the Android Devices with full access to Android subsystem by granting Privileged control, also known as ‘Root Access’. Rooting overcomes the confinements and limitations that the carriers and manufacturers set on their devices. Thus it allows the user to alter the system settings and permits the use of Administrator-level authorization.
Android being a Linux –kernel derivative, rooting an Android platform is a lot like retrieving administrative permission on Linux. Rooting used be an obscure process and was only confined to the will of the hackers and modders.
Process normally includes exploiting a vulnerable security weakness in the firmware but is a time consuming process as every phone is different and one needs to find the right method for the specific device.
Nowadays that process has become quite stress-free these days. Now a user only needs to download and run the program designated for Rooting. One such application is Unlock Root.
