A question. what exactly is "rooting" an Android phone? What does it do? Is it the samething as unlocking? Why do you do it to a phone that already works?
Hi, Rooting is a process allowing users of smart phones, tablets, and other devices running the android operation system to attain privileged control (known as "root access”) within Android's subsystem. Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices, resulting in the ability to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized apps that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user. Rooting is analogous to jail breaking devices running the Apple iOS operating system or the Sony play station. On Android, rooting can also facilitate the complete removal and replacement of the device's operating system, usually with a more recent release of its current operating system. Thus “rooting” a android phone is not meant for unlocking it. So, if you need to unlock your phone, you must contact your telecom service provider or a site such as http://www.theunlockspot.com/
where we can unlock or phone permanently. So rooting is a process for android to get control within an android subsystem. Thanks
