I hope that you are reading this article if had already rooted your device or willing to root later. Anyway there are lot of advantages for a rooted android device than a normal device. Before explaining that you should understand what is rooting an android device.
Simply rooting an android device such as tablets, smartphones is to attain certain control within Android’s subsystem. Rooting is for overcoming the limitations which had already made by the device manufacturers for putting some restrictions over the device. Rooting makes you a super user of your device which you had bought for a high cost.
There are many advantages if you root your android device. Some of them are mentioned here.
1. Huge Access to Root only Apps
As you know that there are more than 6000000 apps on Google Android Market. Among these you can’t install thousands of apps which needs Super User permission. One popular app which need Super User Permission is Link2SD. Link2SD allows users to move apps installed on device to external SD card which saves the internal memory. Here are some other popular apps which need device to be rooted.
- Keyboard Manager
- Titanium Backup
- Samba Filesharing
- Dual Mount SD Widget
This is the main advantage of rooting your device. All you know that every year android introduces new updates in their OS. When i am posting this article their last OS were Jelly Bean. Your Brand New Smart Phone seems too old if you use an older version of android. Am i right?
If you make your device rooted you can manually install pirated version of brand new android OS. I had installed Jelly Bean on my Galaxy Y successfully.
If You became the Super user of your device ( After rooting you are called super user) , you can manage all of your phones system files means you can uninstall unwanted inbuilt apps also known as Bloatware from your device.
This makes your phone clean as well as extra bit of memory space.
4. Overclock Processor
By rooting your device you can overclock your processor. Overclocking with Custom ROM’s results in explosive device performance. One user of Nexus S had said that he got more speed of 250 % after he rooted and overclocked the processor. But i didn’t getting enough speed after overclocking my Galaxy Y.
Only one advice to my fellow readers that please do not try to overclock your device without getting significant proof. It will result in damage of your brand new Phone.
5. 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.
Before rooting your device keep in mind that it will break all manufactures warranty. So think two or three times before breaking up your device. If any problem persists you can unroot your device.
