Android rooting is something every user tries to accomplish. Rooting of Android gives you free reign over using your Android device. But with the perks you also have to contend with drawbacks such as rendering your warranty useless or turn your device into a brick.
All you need to do is be careful on how you do the rooting. For instance, using Dr.Fone Android root software program is one way to ensure safe rooting.

Rooting in simple words is jailbreaking done on Android devices.
With rooting, a user can move into the sub system of the device and access the whole operating system and perform any degree of customization on any feature of the device.
Another advantage of rooting is you can get past the carrier or manufacturer restrictions, run as many apps as you want, under clock/overclock the processor and even replace the firmware.
Is rooting necessary?
With rooting you can be rid of all the unnecessary programs in your device that cannot be normally uninstalled. You can fix wireless tethering.
Other advantages include installation of special apps and custom ROMs, which help to improve the performance of your device.
Why you should be careful about rooting?
Some drawbacks of rooting include
- Invalid warranty – Carriers and manufacturers will easily cite the rooting as an excuse for making the warranty void. But this can be avoided, if you unroot the device when you send the device for repair.
- Phone bricking- Too much of tampering always carries the risk of turning your phone into a brick. By using the right rooting method, you can avoid this.
- Security risk: Rooting can make the device vulnerable, especially when you use all kinds of apps or services.
