Android Phone/Tablet rooting guide

What is “Root” ?

Android root user is equivalent to the Administrator user on Windows. The root user has access to the entire Android System. By default, you don’t have root access to your Android device, and the screenshot capturing and Whatsapp logging features won’t function without root access.

Before you root your Android phone or tablet, there are a few things you should be aware of:

Warranty – Some manufacturers assert that rooting voids your device’s warranty. However, rooting will not actually damage your hardware. Mostly you can “unroot” your device and manufacturers won’t be able to tell if it’s been rooted.

Bricking – “Bricking” refers to breaking the device, making it about as useful as a brick. When you root, jailbreak, or install a custom ROM, or otherwise hack around, you do so at your own risk. It’s a good idea to do a little bit of research first and see if other people report success rooting your device.
