Advantages or Benefits of rooting

  • Custom Kernels: Rooting provides the possibility to install custom kernels, which can extend battery life, improve performance, and provide additional features.
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth tethering: Rooting entitles your device to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth tethering without carrier restrictions.
  • Access to System Files: Rooting allows you to access your device’s system files, giving advanced users the ability to make modifications and customizations at a deeper level.
  • Performance Enhancement: Some users root their devices to remove bloatware (pre-installed applications) and optimize performance, which is likely to make their user experience smoother and faster.
  • Customization: Rooting allows you to customize your device more than it normally allows. You can install custom ROMs, and themes and make changes to the overall feel and look of your device.

Disadvantages or Cons of Rooting

  • Danger of Bricking: Incorrect root operation may cause the device to become bricked (stopping working), rendering it unusable.

Pre Requirements:

  • Data Backup: There is a chance that your device’s data will get corrupted while rooting, so before rooting, make sure to keep your device’s data in a safe place.
  • Battery charge: While rooting, make sure that the battery of your device is more than 80% charged so that the battery does not run out during rooting.
  • Internet access: You must have internet access because you need to download the unlock tool and some stuff.
  • Device version check: Check carefully the model number and version of your device, as you will need them to learn the correct rooting method and download some files for your device.
