Rooting is possible to any android device – android phone, android wears, android tables and android TV. By rooting your android phone, it can overcome from the limitation sets by the hardware manufacturers and carriers.

Removes Crapware:

Do you know what is Crapware?, Crapware are those pre-installed apps in Android phones which we are not allowed to remove or replace. But this is not the same after rooting. Rooted Android phone allows you to remove these crapware which manufacturers won’t allow you to uninstall.

Block Ads:

Those annoying ads which pop-up while playing games or opening any app can be blocked. Many ads blocking apps are available free in store but required “Superuser” permission to use it. And you already know that rooting grants you that superuser rights and permission.

Say Bye Bye to your Warranty:

Rooting voids your warranty that means manufacturers will not cover for any damage happens to your phone. Even if you “Unroot” your phone they will easily find out that your phone is gone through rooting.

Problem with updates:

Once you root your phone you will no longer receive regular carrier updates or OTA updates. In case you receive a OTA(Over -the-Air) update notification, be noted that usually OTA updates break the root.

Risk of Bricking:
