Most of the Android users are unfamiliar with the Word ROOTING…Let’s know what it does to your Android device.Android is one of the most open, versatile, and customizable mobile operating systems out there.But you can’t have an access to tweak the hardware components. It provides the user to obtain complete privileges.So that, they can have a complete access to tweak software as well as hardware. For,the folks who are still in a bit confusion — it’s just like running your PC in Administrator mode.That means you will be provided with some special rights which normal users cannot have an access to.
I’m pretty much sure that you might have known why you’re gonna be Rooting your android. Android devices are great out of the box. There are a numerous things that you can do with rooting.But before Rooting one must know it’s flaws too.Rooting does void your warranty(However, some of the OEM’s like Xiaomi are exception),may soft brick your Android (Device will go into bootloop ),device gets heated up (because of over clocking) and some other complications.Here are some of the things that rooting does…
FLASHING CUSTOM FIRMWARES:
One of the main reason why you should be going with rooting is to flash firmwares. Even I did Flash my Android device just to flash firmwares.Trust me it’s totally worth it. A custom firmware changes the entire look and feel of your device .These brings many features and performance fixes and are much more user-friendly when compared to the stock ones.And Custom firmware gets updated more frequently than the stock firmwares. But make sure that you keep a copy of the manufacturer’s firmware(this can be done through TWRP & CWM recoveries). So,that if something goes wrong you can come back to OEM’s firmware.
INSTALLATION OF SPECIFIC TWEAKS PORTED FROM OTHER FIRMWARES :
Xposed installer is a framework for many available modules.Which allows you to customize your Android device’s performance and visual appearance. It’s kind of having many of the features that custom firmwares offer without having to flash one. So, if you don’t feel the need to install a custom firmware and only want a few additional features. Then installing xposed modules might be the best option for you. Also, it’s easy to install and set up. However, Xposed also works flawlessly with a custom firmware.But you need to check whether the module supports or not.Otherwise you’ll get stuck at bootloop (or you may call it as soft-brick).
BACKUP BECOMES MUCH EASIER :
Backup is also possible without Rooting.But, you can back up only apps or multimedia content.Whereas TITANIUM BACKUP,gives you the access to make copies of the entire system image(apps+data). It provides the options to move it to your SD card or computer. You also have the ability to automate the process at regular intervals.You’ll have several options for backing up and also for restoring.This makes life much easier,when ever a user flashes a new firmware. The user need not to start from the scratch.Just selecting a preferred restoration method and with a single tap.The user can restore the entire copy.
MAKE YOUR ANDROID FASTER WITH CLOCKING:
If you are not satisfied with the clocking speed of CPU of your android or You feel that your android is much slower…then no worries, just go with the app SET CPU(there are many similar apps that you can find in the play store) to increase the clocking speed.You can over clock and also you are able to under clock your device.Overclocking refers to increase the clocking speed of CPU.But, remember one thing that you should increase your clocking speed only to some extent(around 20-30%).
For example,If the CPU speed is about 1.2GHz then you can increase it to around 1.5 or 1.6 and not more than that.But if you increase a lot you may face issues with the device. Such as automated rebooting of the device,also over-heating issues arises.And with over clocking you shouldn’t expect a great battery life.Now, coming to under-clocking you can reduce your stock clocking speed.This is done in order to avoid battery drain and also to overcome heating issues.But do remember that it slows down the device a bit.
BLOCK IN-APP ADS:
You may get irritated with the annoying ads that pops up, while you are playing a game or say while you are in some kinda busy stuff.And you might have known that, you need to pay some bugs to enjoy the ad-free version.But, you can remove those ads without paying, just with the apps Ad away,AdFree,Ad block Plus, and you need to grant the root permissions.These apps blocks each and every in-app Ads.
In Android we find many apps that runs in background, consuming much battery and RAM. GREENIFY is an app that can improve your device’s battery life and performance.It hibernates certain apps to do so. Greenify helps you to identify and put the misbehaving apps into hibernation,when you are not using them.It stops them from lagging your device and leeching the battery, in an unique way. They can do nothing without explicit launch by you or other apps.While still preserving full functionality when running in foreground, similar to iOS apps.
Stock android comes with lots of bloatware.These takes up storage and also RAM, and these cannot be removed or uninstalled.But actually we can do that just by rooting. And installing some specific apps which cleans up the bloatware.We can find many apps like system app remover,NoBloat Free …So, go check out these apps and free up space on your Android.
