Why You Need to *ROOT* Your Android Phone! My Top Reasons

Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices. Thus, rooting gives the ability (or permission) to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized apps that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user. On Android, rooting can also facilitate the complete removal and replacement of the device's operating system, usually with a more recent release of its current operating system, according to Wikipedia.

7 Top Reasons You Should Root Your Android

Here again i come wink

Welcome Guys!!

To root or not to root? That is the question. Rooting your Android device definitely push you up a level or two in your geekdom. It requires a certain level of commitment, at least a little savvy, and even a modicum of risk. So, why would you want to bother?

So listed below are my Top  Reasons Why You Should Root Your Android Phone ;

A wide Range of Applications:

If you've spent much time in Google Play, you know you're not exactly hard-up for good apps. But why settle for good when you can have great. Once you're rooted not only can you get more apps, but the apps you have access to can get way down deeper into your phone's brains. In some cases you'll be able to do things that carriers, manufacturers, and/or Google may not want you to do. Some will allow you to do things of questionable legality. For example, Network Spoofer uses your device to set up a fake wireless network. When your house guests sign in, you can make ever image they see inverted, or all of the text fuzzy. It's a harmless prank, but of course it could (but shouldn't!) also be used for stealing passwords and other nefarious things.Some great Applications that makes using an android phone experience unbeatable, Xposed installer(A must), Root explorer, Lucky patcher, freedom, Market enabler,Viper4droid and so many others to mention.

The latest OS updates:

Dammit, why are you  always three updates behind? This may be the most common complaint among Android users, less than half of whom have made it as far as Jelly Bean. Between the Google, the carriers, and the hardware manufacturers, there are a whole lot of friskiness behind closed doors that determines when (or if) your phone gets an upgrade.
Android's developer community, on the other hand, is a hardcore bunch. They're often able to get the new OS onto a phone months before the carrier releases the update, often along with a few bonus features. Once you're rooted, you just have to find the OS version you want (optimized for your specific device), and it's generally extremely easy to install the latest and greatest.

Custom Recovery:

I call this the Soul of tweakers, it's seems to be mother of all,In times of problem you run to momma right? Yes, Custom recovery would always be there for you. A custom recovery is beautiful means of getting yourself out shenanigans encounters, It helps restoring your back to initial working point of your phone, Just like the windows restore point on Pc. We've Got great custom recoveries like TWRP, Philztouch, CWM (ClockWorkMod) and many others for different phone variants and brands.Before doing customization/Tweaking up your phone,This is a must set recovery for you.

Changing the UI:

Android enthusiasts rightly hate the software skins that hardware manufacturers use to brand their devices. They're often bulky, ugly, unwieldy, or just downright not as clean and functional as stock Android. They're also a big reason those OS updates take so long. You're almost always better off without.
So root! Once you do, you can download and install any number of custom-built ROMs (different versions of the Android firmware). Some of them are highly customized and tweaked to add features, and others are basically just stock Android with little or much bloatwares. Cleaning off an ugly skin can be like a breath of fresh air & gives adorable user Interface.

Speed or battery life boosts;

Phone starting to get laggy? Or maybe you're having trouble making it through the day on a single charge? Rooting allows you to install customized kernels (the software that enables the OS to talk to the hardware, basically) that are optimized differently. Some are made for low-power consumption, and some are built for speed. You can also use an app like Set CPU, which enables you to overclock or underclock your phone's processor, and set rules for usage. Some great kernel Ive used and tested working wonderfully well; Boeffla kernel, Artel97 kernel my top vouch, you could make much enquires on which kernel works best for your mobile.

Infinite Features/Freedom:

Can you just Shout it for me ""Freedom"" Fr33dom""Fr33Dom"", My Senegalese Niggur comes to mind smiley.

Beyond just customizing your phone's existing features, rooting helps you pile on all kinds of wonderful new weirdness. You'll love it(I swear it.)

Want to hook up your PlayStation controller to your phone for better gaming? You can. Want to set rules for callers to decide who can and can't call you when? Why not. Maybe your carrier has blocked certain apps, or an app isn't available for the country you live in? There are Market Enabler apps that trick your phone (and Google) into thinking it's on another carrier or in a far off land.You institution restricting you from visiting your P*orn pages on School Wi-fi? You can also , Nervous about connecting to the public Wi-Fi? Wifi Protector will keep you safe from all kinds of ARP, DOS, and MITM attacks. Or, you could put the new Android 4.2 camera on your non-Jellybean phone. Accidentally deleted something you wish you hadn't? Undelete might just save your bacon. The possibilities are virtually limitless. smiley

Better Backup:

There are apps out there that kiiiiinnnnda back up your phone, but generally it's pretty surface level stuff (contacts, pictures, music, etc.). Once rooted you can go way, way deeper. Grab an app called Titanium Backup/RomTool box. Not only can it back up all of your apps, but it can back up all of the information stored in those apps. So if you've been doing great in Candy crush but you want to wipe your phone and start fresh, you can use Titanium to back up and then restore the game, and you'll be right where you left off. It's a nice security blanket if you're going to be messing around deep in your phone's brain.

In spite of all these benefits, only you know whether rooting is right for you. For some people it's just not worth the time and effort. For others, it's a godsend that allows them to use their phones in a better way and for a longer time. If you decide to take the plunge, read up and make sure you follow instructions carefully. After that, go hog wild. It's your phone, after all.grin

Hope this helps you make your mind whether to root your device or not..
