Smartphone Rooting and its Advantages
By enabling the root on your Android smartphone, you will get a power user or administrator access easily over the system and sub-system apps. Customizations, installing custom modules, and tweaking becomes easier on a rooted device. However, smartphone OEMs don’t provide any external customization options by default.
Additionally, each and every Android device comes with a locked bootloader as the companies want you to get connected with their own UI. Without unlocking the bootloader, you can’t install third-party firmware or can’t root your device as well.
On a rooted device, you can edit, modify, delete root directory files. You can use rooted apps for increasing the device performance, enhance the battery usage, install custom modules & framework. Additionally, you can restrict background running apps quite well, remove ads, and even uninstall pre-loaded apps.
