What is Rooting?
Rooting is basically a process where the access to system level files is given to the third party custom ROMs or the files so that the required customization can be made. Only rooting makes it possible to customize the phone the way you want to. So, let’s proceed and check out the merits and demerits below.
Merits of Rooting:
There are many advantages of rooting which we have mentioned in the below list.
- Rooting allows you to convert the current laggy file system of RFS to the faster EXT4 file system,
- It also allows you to remove the default applications which comes pre-loaded,
- It allows you to install the custom firmwares as well as the beta Stock ROMs from different country un officially.
De Merits of Rooting:
- If rooting process is not followed properly then you may even brick the device,
- Rooting voids the warranty, though can be regained by updating with the default firmware.
