    Commonly used Android Terms & Abbreviations



    adb: Android Debug Bridge, a versatile tool lets you manage the state of an emulator instance or Android-powered device

    ADK: Android Development Kit, What people use to develop anything for the droid such as ROM's

    Baseband: In communications and signal processing, the baseband describes signals and systems whose range of the frequencies measured from close to 0 hertz to a cut-off frequency, a maximum bandwidth or highest signal frequency; it is sometimes used to describe frequencies starting close to zero

    Boot Loader: State in which the droid can be flashed from RSD with an appropriate .sdk file that reprograms the phone into a specific ROM or update. This is typically a last resort when the recovery screen cannot be reached to make a much simpler and less risky solution

This allows you to easily replace files (not having to worry about odexes), but the main point was to deodex services.jar so that you can change all text to different colors (such as the clock color to white) and to deodex services.jar, you need to deodex everything.

    Dev. or Developer: An individual that creates, or alters a file in such a manner as to advance the program

    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.
