This is Why You Should Root Your Android Device
The last few articles dealt with Rooting various devices. However, it is obvious that many of you will wonder as to why exactly you should go for the rooting process at all. TO clear that up, I will give you a few reasons as to why I think Rooting should be applied to you Android device. So, without further ado, lets get started –
- Install ‘ Uninstallable ‘ Apps – Although Android is an Open source software, it still cannot give you complete access to all features. Sometimes, you will find that a particular app or feature has been blocked by your carrier or Phone manufacturer, for reasons only known to them. In such cases, Rooting plays a big role. Once you root your Android Device, all these problems will instantly vanish, and you will finally become the undisputed master of your piece of Android Tech.
- Automate Everything – Its a well known fact that , one can automate majority of their tasks on their Android devices.While some brands pre install an Automation program, there others where you yourself have to go on the Play Store and get yourself a Task Automater. One of the most prominent names in Task Automation apps is Tasker. This app lets you automate almost every task on your device. However, there are some features like Toggling 3G, GPS, changing CPU speed, turning the screen on, and others that require Root access. Not just this app, several other apps as well function much better when you have root access.
- Get a speed and performance boost – While it is true that you can optimise your Android device without root access, you will be able to do a lot more if you do. While normal Android devices can only go as far as turning off notifications and disabling unwanted apps, Rooted devices can go as far as getting their CPU overlocked for better performance and under clocked for better Battery life. You can also use apps to automatically hibernate apps you aren’t using. This will make sure no apps silently work in the background and hog that battery and memory .

- Block those annoying ads – Ads are ways through which the app developers earn some money , even out of their ‘Free’ Apps. Hoever, while its all cool on their part, there are many users who simply delete the apps on seeing those pesky ads come out of nowhere . There are two ways you can get rid of these ads. You can either put your device in Airplane mode while using the device, or go ahead and root your Android Device. I would definitely go for the latter because putting your device in Ariplane mode is only a quick fix and its efect wear off the moment you turn the mode off. However, if you root your Android device, you can opt for proper ad removal apps like AdBlock Pro, and get rid of those pesky ads for good.
- Keep your data Backed Up – when you buy a new Android device, switching all your data and settings can be a big hassle sometimes. That is why , it has become rather imperative these days to have a backup ready of your Data and Settings. This way, when you are going through a device transition, you can end the process in just a few taps, rather than minutes.
