Part 1. What is Rooting on Android and Why We Want to Root?

Most Android users are annoyed by these system default applications, which are not really being used but can not be deleted because, if so, the Android operating system will not run smoothly and may cause an interruption. Rooting is a process that allows users to access the main software code of the device's operating system and allows you to modify or change something based on what you want, and how you want the phone application to work for you. Safe to say that this is Android corresponding to Apple jailbreak. After rooted, you can no freely install apps that you think will enhance your mobile experience. After all, that is what we all wanted, to get the most of what we have.

Part 2. Precautions before Rooting Your Android

Note: Rooting Android phone is not guaranteed 100% success and safe, so the following precautions you need to take before rooting an Android phone.

Is rooting safe? This is the most common questions being asked by interested users. Android root acts like the device administrator and guard, so once this layer of security tampers, there are several risks that can affect your Android phone. As we mentioned above, make sure to have all the necessary backups needed.

As an open operating system, Android triggers a wide range of Android mobile brands and Android OS versions, we still have not found out a program which is 100% compatible for every Android phone or leads to absolutely successful rooting, particularly for Android 4.4 and the later.
Always remember to practice safety and protection before doing any root on your Android devices.
