Benefits Of Rooting Your Android Device

Rooting Your Android Device
Google’s Android is open, customizable and a highly versatile operating system compared to other mobile OSes. And rooting it allows users complete control on their devices. However, you may wonder as to what rooting your Android device involves and what are the benefits in doing so. First, it is essential to understand what rooting is all about.

For the uninitiated, rooting gives users root permission and access to their devices. Rooting also gives the users the ability to tweak the settings on their phones, flash custom ROMs on the phone for adding additional features, as well as modify the software on the device. However, rooting is not everyone’s cup of tea, but it can be done successfully provided the users follow the rooting instructions for their device carefully.

A thing to note is that with different kinds of Android phones available, the same rooting technique may not work for all. So before rooting, users need to ascertain whether or not a particular rooting method will actually work for their devices. Users should also know that doing so will void the manufacturer’s warranty on your device and there is a small chance that improper rooting can also damage the phone permanently. Nonetheless, there are still plenty of benefits to rooting your phone and it is a risk definitely worth taking.

Flash a custom ROM:

This is one of the best benefits of rooting an Android device. In simple terms, a custom ROM is a modified version of Android that users can install if they are not happy with the Android version that their device comes with. Adding a custom ROM adds more unique and convenient features to the phone that are not usually seen on their devices. Samsung devices are usually the most rooted of all, as users want to use stock Android ROMs that are much more agile than Samsung’s TouchWiz skin.

Flash a custom kernel:

A kernel allows apps on the phone to communicate directly with the hardware of the phone. A custom kernel helps improve the performance of the phone, enhance battery life, speed up battery charging, and also add advanced features such as Wi-Fi tethering on certain phones that do not come with this option.

Tweak under the hood settings: Users can tweak every little feature of their phone including customizing the keyboard layout, enhancing multitasking functionality, increasing the scrolling speed as well as adding interesting themes to the phone. Basically, rooting allows users to reach into the darkest corners of their phones and make the most of the changes that are possible.

Remove bloatware:

This is one of the best reasons for rooting. Often the phones are preloaded with software and apps that one does not use. These programs not only occupy the onboard memory, but can also drain the battery. Before uninstalling any apps, users should confirm that those apps are not vital to efficient functioning of their phones.


Having a backup of crucial data and settings is highly recommended. Should a user want to migrate to a new Android handset or wishes to restore the deleted data to the current handset for any reason, then a backup must be readily available. This is also helpful even if the user is not rooting his/her device.

Apart from these benefits, rooting also helps to block annoying ads that appear in apps, boost the speed and battery life of the phone, automate everything as well as unlock certain hidden features in the device and install certain apps that are otherwise considered as incompatible.

How To Turn Your IPhone Into A Unlocked Wireless Device

If you purchased your iPhone from AT&T, there is a very good chance that your phone is what is considered a locked device. This means that your device will only work on the AT&T network. This typically does not cause any problems, as long as you remain with AT&T. The problem occurs when you consider changing mobile phone providers. Below is some vital information about why you might want to turn your iPhone into a unlocked wireless device and how to do it.

There are really four basic reasons why you may want to consider unlocking your iPhone. And they are,

Change Mobile Phone Carriers:

           The only way that you will be able to use your iPhone on another mobile phone company’s networks is to unlock the device. All AT&T phones that operate with a SIM card, require that the SIM card ID and the cell phone’s ID match. This means that if you change carriers and put their SIM card into your phone it will not work.

Increase the Value of Your Phone:

          If you have recently upgraded to the newest iPhone version, you may want to consider selling your old phone. You will be able to sell it for a lot more money if the phone is unlocked. This is because unlocked iPhones are in high demand, and you will be able to sell it to people with other mobile phone carriers.

Use Apps Outside of Apple App Store:

          If you have a locked iPhone, you will only be able to download apps to your phone that are found in the Apple Apps store. While Apple does have a large selection of apps for the phone, there still may be some apps that are only available on other networks.

If You Are Traveling Overseas:

          If you travel overseas with your current iPhone, you may be surprised when your next phone bill come in due to the huge amount of roaming charges. However, if you have an unlocked phone, you can take out the SIM card while you are in the other country and use one from that country. Europe offers SIM card that come with a set amount of minutes already on them, which is less expensive.

Steps for Unlocking Your Phone:

If you fit any of the four categories above and want to unlock your phone, you need to be very careful about how you go about it. There are some websites that offer to show you how to unlock your phone through a process called jailbreak. Not only is this process illegal, but is can also cause severe damage to your phone if not done properly. There are also several third party companies that offer this service for a set price. This also may not be the safest method for unlocking your phone.

Fortunately, AT&T offers their customers a way to unlock their iPhone right through their website. You are require to first fill out the online unlock request form, and within five days, they will send you the cod you need to unlock your phone. In order to qualify for this service you must be a current or past customer of AT&T and not be delinquent on any payments to AT&T. In addition, the phone must not have been reported lost or broken in the past and it must be an AT&T distributed phone.

If you feel that turning your phone into an unlocked wireless device is the best option for you, contacting AT&T directly is the best method to use. If they cannot help you, then you may want to explore other options. However, it is important to know that if you live in the United States it is actually considered illegal to unlock your phone on your own and you could face some stiff fines.

Rooting the OS can help us do many custom operations like unlocking, customization of apps, different ROMs, custom kernels etc. Once you root your mobile, you can have better custom control over it where you can perform lot of operations. It is a tricky process and should be carefully carried out. If the processes are not followed exactly that might leave the phone damaged and dead.

While rooting the phone, make sure you are doing the processes safely by following the steps below. By rooting the phone, you are actually removing the mobile OS restrictions from the internal system of your device. After you finish rooting on your device, you can have complete access to the operating system and the internal system of your device.

Once rooted, you can customize your device’s system to,
  • Install custom apps,
  • Remove internal built-in apps,
  • Modify internal settings,

Samsung Galaxy S3 (Root, Recovery and Custom ROMs)

Creating a custom recovery image ~ Step by Step procedure:

After rooting an S3, custom recovery images can be created, as all Android systems have a recovery partition. This recovery image can later be used if the OS has crashed and to reflash the OS for device recovery.
  1. Launch the ROM Manager that you installed in the previous step and select Flash ClockworkMod Recovery and choose your device.
  2. When you select the Superuser prompt, choose the “Grant” option.
  3. The recovery image is created after it displays “Successfully flashed”.

Loading Custom ROMs ~ Step by step procedure:

Only if the device is rooted and a recovery image is created based on the steps mentioned above, Custom ROMs can be flashed into the device. All the different types of ROMs developed have their own differences, so try few and find which the best based on your usage.
  • Select the ROM that you prefer based on your S3, then download it as a .zip file to your computer.
  • Once downloaded, copy the .zip file without extracting, to the device’s SD card.
  • Disconnect the device from the computer and open ROM Manager from your apps.
  • Select the Reboot into Recovery option and the device would start rebooting after that.
  • After entering into the recovery mode following the reboot process, use the volume buttons to navigate(selecting through options) and power button to select Backup and Recovery.
  • Choose the Backup option and select yes for confirmation. This might take some time so you’ll have to wait till it completes.
  • Select Wipe Data / Factory option ->Select Flash zip from sdcard.
