Most users are searching for rooting tools and try to root their old Android smartphone as preparation for an actual rooting process. Actually, it is impossible to determine if the rooting is good or bad since it contains both positive and negative effect equally. In here you will be able to have a reasonable comparison regarding rooting based non-partial view. You will be able to have a close glance at rooting here with some important information.

What Is Android Rooting

The key purpose of Android rooting is to customize the stock Android smartphone according to users' preferences. As Android smartphone users, all of us know that we cannot use our smartphones as we want in some cases. As an example, we can consider uninstalling system apps. When we come across a lack of memory, we try to free some space uninstalling apps and games we have installed on our devices. After trying uninstalling installed apps and games we navigate to uninstall other apps that have come with the system. As my personal experience, I know that we cannot do anything other than disabling the app which can never free up some additional space.

Most probably, you must be someone who has tried this already now. Likewise, there are some tasks that we cannot perform ourselves due to an unidentified and unverified reason. Actually, the reason becomes unidentified and unverified only for regular Android users. All the Advanced Android users are aware of the reason and always searching for the best solution.

The reason is software restrictions that have been imposed on your device operating system by your device manufactures or network carriers. Most of the common problems which users face are based on these software restrictions. Android can be customized and modified officially but you cannot do it as a regular Android user. You need to become a superuser accessing into the system partition where android operating system files and other essential files are placed in your device. The process we use to do is called "Rooting"

How To Denied Acess To Android System And How To Enable Acess

Perhaps you may be thinking of how do network carriers or device manufacturers restrict the access to the Android system since it is An open-source platform. I will explain the principle which is used to do so in a simple manner since it is hard to explain the principle technically within limited writing space. The Android operating system is based on Linux kernel. The kernel is the programme which controls everything in the operating system.

The key purpose of the kernel is to connect applications and software to the device hardware. That is why it loads as the first programme after booting device. It handles almost all of the functions such as data processing, connection to external devices, requests from software and many more. Linux kernel uses a few but essential security features focusing on isolating users resources providing no mutual access between user resources.

Device manufacturers who use Android as their operating system take out the maximum usage from this mechanism and keep system partition isolated. If you need to enable the access to system partition you need to become a  superuser and access into the root account. Root access allows you to access all the restricted files and commands.

How To Become a Superuser

There are two technical ways to become superuser. You can log in as root directly or execute the command su using another user account. The first one requires advanced technical knowledge and second on has become easier with the one-click rooting tools. One-click rooting tools simply execute the Su command using your account, giving you access to the root account as a superuser.

What Happens When You Become A Superuser

As a Superuser you can access all the restricted files and command on your device and change them as you want. But you need to be careful since Unix-like superuser has all privilages to access the device operating system and this access may be caused to crash the system and delete the necessary system files. After reading all the facts you may come across how to root android reliably. It depends on the rooting knowledge you have. You can use one-click rooting tools, flashing utilities and fastboot method to root your device.

Dark Side Of Rooting

1. Since rooting directly violates the manufacturers' regulations you cannot claim device warranty
2. There is a higher risk of device bricking since root change the default device commands and files
3. Risk of viruses or malware due to breaking default security that has been provided for the System partition


All the information that is mentioned here was collected from trusted sources and personal experience and hope these facts would pave the way for successful rooting. The key intention of this article is to make you aware of the technical side of rooting. Because all of us know what is rooting in literally and practically. But most of Android users expect advanced users has incomplete knowledge in the rooting mechanism. I hope this will fill that shortage.
