Rooting & Jail-breaking

What is Rooting?

Rooting is the process of modifying the original operating system on the phone in which the limitations are removed and full-access is allowed and thus allowing you to alter or replace system applications and settings or run specialised or non approved applications. In addition you can also remove and replace the device’s operating system with a custom one.

Is rooting dangerous?

There are certain consequences and risks to take into account when you’re considering to root your phone.

1. Rooting will immediately voids your phone’s warranty.
By not allowing access to the superuser account, the manufacturers and your carrier have basically protected you from doing things that change the system and make it unstable. It is plainly stated that altering or using unapproved software voids your warranty, and rooting falls into that category.

2. Rooting involves the risk of “BRICKING” your phone.
Don’t root your device just for the sake of rooting it unless you come across something you feel could use or would like to have, then consider it. The decision to root your Android is one that should not be rushed into. Through the allure of having an unrestricted phone is wonderful, having a “Bricked” phone is, not so much fun!
