People want to customize their smartphones and Android is an open source operating system that allows you to customize it as you like. But how do you customize it. The answer to this question or the first step for this would be rooting your Android smartphone. If you are using an Android smartphone then you might be very well aware of what rooting is and why should you root it, so I won’t be wasting my and your time explaining the meaning of android rooting.
But why should you root your smartphone and completely void its warranty? Here’s why people root their Android smartphone.
Reasons to Root Your Android Smartphone?
Reason #1: Become Your Phone’s Master
Yeah you heard it right! When you buy a new smartphone, you see that there are many apps that you don’t need at all like the company apps and other services. These apps are called bloatware apps and they are of no use but they come as default apps. The most irritating part is that you can’t delete them and they stay right there on your phone and take up most of the memory space.
But once you root your Android smartphone, you don’t have to let it stay on your device as you can now delete it as and when you like. You get the ultimate access to your smartphone’s working and you can easily control the functions of your device and even configure them.
Reason #2: Custom ROMs
The other big reason that you should root your Android smartphone is that you get the ability of installing different Custom ROMs on your smartphone. Custom ROMs allows you to give your smartphone a completely different look than the stock ROM that comes by default. And there are no bloatwares in the Custom ROMs.
There are many great ROMs available to install on your phone like CyanogenMod, ParanoidAndroid and others that are backed up by a team of highly-skilled developers and are free from bugs and other vulnerabilities. And you can install and remove Custom ROMs on your smartphone easily if you have installed a custom recovery like ClockworkMod or TWRP on your phone.
Reason #3: Performance Tweaks
There are not many independent apps that can make your smartphone run smoothly or maybe there are but not as efficient as they are claimed to be. But instead of using different apps on your smartphone, you can install custom scripts on your smartphone.
There are many scripts that you can install on your Android device that can enhance the performance of your smartphone many folds. You can go through XDA forums and you will get many custom scripts that will suite your smartphone.
