So

Let’s start read

about rooting android phone

 

  1. WHAT IS ROOTING

Rooting can be defined as gaining administrative (admin) access to your android phone, that is getting access to the root directory of your android phone

Rooting is usually done to get out of the various restrictions that the mobile phone manufacturer put on it

For various security reasons android phone doesn’t come rooted

Rooting in ios is known as jailbreak with slight variation

ROOTING

Let’s explain this by taking an example

So that, even a non-technical guy could easily understand this

Consider you are living in a flat. You would be allowed to do things like attaching curtains, changing bulbs, fans etc but you won’t be allowed to make a major modification like rebuilding rooms, demolishing  walls etc

so

You can compare rooting with gaining access to even make major modifications like rebuilding rooms, demolishing walls etc as mentioned above

Like this

In a non-rooted phone, we can do small modifications like installing apps, installing OTA updates changing wallpapers, saving numbers in contacts etc

But in a rooted phone, you cant uninstall bloatwares, install custom recovery, custom ROM, change boot animation and much more

  •  What is bloatwares

Bloatwares are apps which are pre-installed in your android phone and you can’t uninstall these apps without rooting your android phone. These apps are also called as system apps and crapware

BLOATWARE

  • Why do manufacturers preload with bloatware apps

Because there is a fee associated with installing these bloatwares in android phone

Which will create an extra source of income from, so they can also reduce the cost of the device

  •  What is custom ROM

Custom ROM can be defined as the modified version of Android source code provided by Google but this is not the case for ios, ios are not open source so you can’t find any custom ROMs

In simple words, custom ROM is like modified version operating systems provided in pc

  •  Why custom ROM is made

By making a custom ROM, you can add new features, improve the performance of your android phone, customize your android phone and much more

CUSTOM ROM

  •  What is custom recovery

Custom recovery can be defined as the modified recovery environment, every phone come with a pre-installed recovery

  • Why custom recovery is used

Custom recovery is mainly used to install custom ROM and in some subsidiary tasks like  backup, wipe data, cache rooting etc

As everything in the world has pros and cons

Like that

Rooting also has its own advantages and disadvantages

Advantages of rooting

  1. Rooting android phone: Installing custom ROM

Rooting the Android phone allows you to install custom ROM and tweaking kernel

Most of the custom ROMs are specially optimized for increasing battery life and performance

  • What is kernel

A kernel is part of the Android operating system which supports various apps and hardware in an android phone

Examples of custom ROM: lineage os, asop, CyanogenMod, resructon remix etc

These are the most common custom ROMs available now

  1. Rooting android phone: removing bloatware or crapware or system apps

In an android phone, it is merely impossible to uninstall bloatware/crapware/system-apps pre-installed by manufacturers

After rooting the Android phone, you can easily uninstall bloatware/crapware/system-apps so you can release the internal storage and ram used by these apps

I have seen certain cases, where battery performance is degraded by some of these but the situation had changed

Now developers are taking keen attention on these apps to remove apps which causes problems to Android operating systems

  1. Rooting Android phone: Add extra features and functionality

By rooting the Android phone, you can add extra functionalities like double tap to wake up, double tap to screen off, swipe to open apps etc

And also remove some of these features to increase the battery performance

  1. Rooting Android phone: installing non-supported / incompatible apps

After rooting an Android phone, you can install most of the incompatible apps

So let’s take my example for this

A few years ago, I got an idea of starting a technology youtube channel  and make tutorials on various issues in the Android phone

I had only a minimal budget to start my youtube channel, so I thought of creating videos by screen record my android phone and giving a voice over by using a mike

Now I ended up with a major problem in creating videos for my youtube channel

We can only screen record in an Android phone with Android version 5.0+, That is above lollipop

My phone redmi note 4g with android version 4.4.4

I searched nuke and corner on the internet to find an app which allows to screen record in android version 4.4.4 ( KitKat) but I failed

So I got only two solutions, root my phone or update my android version to a higher android version. I can’t update because I got no update to later versions of android

So I just rooted my phone and the problem is solved

  1. Rooting android phone: increase battery life and speed

By uninstalling bloatware and by using greenify app, we can increase the battery life and performance of the android device

Basically, greenify app closes useless apps /hibernate to increase performance and battery life

This apps was earlier only available for rooted android phone

Now its changed, this app is now also available for even  non- rooted Android phones

  1. Rooting android phone: underclock/overclock CPU performance/ speed in the Android device

In a non-rooted phone, we can’t underclock/overclock CPU speed but in a rooted android phone we can underclock and overclock CPU/ processor

Underclocking increases battery life whereas overclocking increases android phones performance

There are many apps for underclocking and overclocking in rooted android phone

Both overclocking and underclocking have its own pros and cons. we will see the cons in the disadvantages section

  1. Rooting android phone: backup the whole device data

In a rooted android phone, we can back up the whole device data including app data, photos, videos and files but in a non – rooted android phone, we cant backup the whole device data

It has many limitations

We cant take backup app data , system settings etc

 

Now

 

Let’s see the disadvantages/cons in rooting your android phone

 

Disadvantages of rooting an android phone

 

  1. Rooting android phone: Rooting can brick your android device

Any mishandling in the rooting process could turn your android phone into a piece of unusable thing /brick. If you are new to this then the chances of bricking your android phone are also higher

  1. Rooting android phone: loose warranty

 

Another major fact is that you would lose warranty after rooting your android phone

still, there are chances of  unrooting your android phone and regain your phones warranty

 

Still, there are times where you can’t go back to the non-rooted android phone and most of the time, you will end up voiding the warranty

  1. Rooting android phone: Loose getting OTA updates

In a rooted android phone, you won’t get regular OTA updates given by manufacturer still you can manually install OTA updates by using custom recovery or by using pc

  1. Rooting android phone: Security

In rooted phones, we cant use banking apps but we can also solve this issue by replacing supersu by magisk (hiding root)

  1. Overheating

If you overclock your rooted android phone above the preferred range. it can cause overheating and can damage the hardwares in the rooted android phone

 

How to root an android phone

There is no universal method for rooting an android phone. if someone justifies by saying there is a universal method for rooting android phone

Then be careful

It’s a scam

Every phone has its own unique method of rooting the particular android phone

There any many apps to root the android phone namely king root, iroot, kingoroot, frameroot but these apps are only available till android version 5.0 and rarely some android phones with android version 6.0 also get into this list. there are exceptions in this also, that my android phone redmi note 4g which comes under this category with android version 4.4.4 (KitKat )

But my don’t support these one – click root apps, it has an entirely unique method to root

That is

By unlocking bootloader and directly flashing/installing custom recovery and installing/flashing supersu through custom recovery namely twrp, cynagenmod etc

But now twrp is the most commonly used custom recovery
