You can download Root Master from here.
Over the past few years, the battle has raged on between iOS and Android, with both having their own advantages and disadvantages. But everyone has to agree. When it comes to user customisation, there is only one clear winner. Android. And we’re here bringing you a way to unlock limitless potential to your phone. Yes we’re talking about rooting your phone.
Agreed, that even without rooting your phone. You can change a huge amount of things. But the fact remains that if you want to unlock the full potential of your phone, you must root it. Before we get around to how you will root it. Let’s find out a bit more about rooting.
Rooting is a process that technically allows one to get root access to the Android operating system code . It gives you the power to modify the software code on the device or install other software that the manufacturer wouldn’t normally allow you to. I mean sure, they have a good valid reason for not allowing you to do that right from the start, cause it can result in accidents that generally leave your phone beyond repair(yes, we’re talking about the dreaded hard-bricks here.) But if you’re like us then you love your phone to be up to date with the best and latest software. And the only way you can get your hands on the latest software if you manufacturer isn’t providing you with it , is by using ROM’s. ROM’s aren’t the only use of rooting your phone, others include:
- Complete control over the customization of just about everything on your phone.
- The power to override PlayStore limitations and download any app, regardless of the app store they’re posted on, or what platform they’re made for(tablet etc).
- Improved battery life and a much much better performance
- Get your phone up to date to the latest version of Android if your device is outdated or if the manufacturer simply decided to not upgrade the software anymore.
- Making use of Xposed or other modules to improve app/system performance
Now it can’t be all good in life can it? Of course there will be some limitations. You do the process right, and you’ve got yourself a wonderful device that’s running the latest and greatest software. But take one wrong step, and BOOM. All your efforts, down the drain.
They say “With great power comes great responsibility.”
What’s the great power here you ask? Well a phone with untapped potential you can enhance right in your palms is something to start with. But now of course as we all know, there are some problems we can always run into, a few of them are highlighted below:
- The infamous “Hard Brick”: Now we obviously don’t mean your phone will convert into an actual literal brick. What’s a bricked phone you ask? Well, a bricked phone means one and only one thing, your phone will just simply refuse to turn on in any way, shape or form, and there’s nothing you can do to fix it. It is, for all the meaning of the word, as useful as a brick.
- Your phone warranty turns void:Let’s get this cleared out now. You’re not gonna become a secret agent working for MIA who has to go undercover once you root your phone. It’s completely and totally legal to root your phone,however, you should know that if you do, your device instantly becomes void of warranty. Hypothetically, say that you root your phone and that you somehow succeed without blowing up your phone to smithereens. A little time after that, you experience a mishap, a hardware or software mishap. Perhaps your battery life gets ruined or maybe your phone just works way too slow. Now you don’t have the right to approach customer care to fix the problem that you knew you would encounter if you root your phone. Because of the fact that you’ve rooted your Android, the warranty is no longer valid, and the manufacturer completely disagree to cover the damages.
- Malware can easily breach your mobile security: Remember we talked about ROM’s? Now the thing with ROM’s is the fact that most of them don’t ship with the latest security patches that are sent out by Google to combat malware. Heck they could even ship fully loaded with Malware. Gaining root access also means the security restrictions put in place by the Android operating system are completely overlooked. Which means your phone can be a host to worms, viruses, spyware and Trojans, or maybe even all of them grouped together to make your life worse. Now there are a hundred ways these malware get on your phone downloads, malicious links, infected apps that you download and install from unknown sources.
