Have you ever wondered what are the benefits of rooting your android device?
You must have heard rooting or root in android community. They are used all the time everywhere.
Rooting is the Android equivalent of jailbreaking, a means of unlocking the operating system so you can install unapproved apps, deleted unwanted bloatware, update the OS, replace the firmware, overclock (or underclock) the processor, customize anything and so on.
Here are top 5 reasons why you should root your android phone:
- Phone Backup
When you loose your phone you loose all your data mainly. Yes in lolipop there is inbuilt backup solution but with apps such as titanium backup you can backup absolutely everything on your phone. You can even save a copy of it with your cloud storage service or you can pull down to another phone as cloud storage feature is not free.
- More customization
On many phones company the company manufacturers don’t let you customize your phone freely with out of box un-rooted. On rooting your phone you can customize as :
Add option to your power menu.
Changing lock screen shortcuts.
Changing your notifications light colors
- Rom and Kernels
Here we have custom Rom Cyanogenmod and that essentially what different custom Rom allows you to do. They just add features to your phone and allow you to customize a hole lot of different things. Some mods are scientifically built to give you a lot more features on top of what market offers. For ex – Controlling the brightness of your phone by just swiping your status bar at the top and many more.
- Regular updates
It is a related to custom Rom that the developers do a good job by keeping it up to date with latest updated version of android. If they don’t you can find another one that is updated and use it instead. You can get to try out the latest version of android earlier than the people who have not rooted theirs. You are not going to have same problem of your phone as it is supported and the fact it is not going to be updated. Because you have plenty of custom Rom out there and you don’t have to wait for the company to roll out update for you.
- Get rid of pre-installed softwares
In every phone you would see some pre-installed apps that are pretty much useless and you are never gonna use them but phone manufacturers don’t let you uninstalled them on your phone. However rooted phones can easily remove such apps by help of titanium backup.
