What is Rooting on Android?

Beginners29

“What is rooting? Why should I root my Android device?” These are common questions that I get asked quite often. Today’s lesson is to talk to you about both the advantages and disadvantages of rooting your Android devices. But before we get started, a word of caution: rooting or modifying your phone in any way will void your manufacturer’s warranty and possibly “brick” it. What does “bricking” your device mean you ask? Exactly what you think… It means screwing up your phone software so badly that your phone can no longer function properly and is pretty much as useless as a brick. I do not in any way recommend anyone to root their Android device. This article is simply to introduce you to the subject of rooting and present you with both the pro’s and con’s so that you can make an educated decision on your own.

What is Rooting?

“Rooting” your device means obtaining “superuser” rights and permissions to your Android’s software. With these elevated user privileges, you gain the ability to load custom software (ROM’s), install custom themes, increase performance, increase battery life, and the ability to install software that would otherwise cost extra money (ex: WiFi tethering). Rooting is essentially “hacking” your Android device. In the iPhone world, this would be the equivalent to “Jailbreaking” your phone.

Why is it called Rooting?

The term “root” comes from the Unix/Linux world and is used to describe a user who has “superuser” rights or permissions to all the files and programs in the software OS (Operating System). The root user, because they have “superuser” privileges, can essentially change or modify any of the software code on the device. You see, your phone manufacturer/carrier only gives you “guest” privileges when you purchase your device. They do this for good reason… they don’t want you getting into certain parts of the software on your phone and screwing it up beyond repair. It makes it much easier for them to manage and update the devices if they lock it all down. This way, all the users are running the same unmodified version of the phone’s software. This makes it much easier for them to support the devices. But, for the tech-savvy crowd, only having “guest” privileges on your device is pretty lame and it locks down a lot of potentially useful features.

What are the Advantages of Rooting?

Custom Software (ROM’s)

You may have heard of people loading custom “ROM’s” on their devices. A “ROM” is the software that runs your device. It is stored in the “Read Only Memory” of your device. There are many great custom ROM’s available that can make your Android device look and perform drastically different. For instance, you might be stuck with an older Android device that is stuck on an older version of the Android OS and it is not getting any of the newer updated versions of Android. With a custom ROM, you could load up the latest and greatest available Android versions and bring that antiquated device up to par with some of the newer ones. There are lots of great ROM’s available for many different phones and it is up to you to find the one that best meets your needs. The best place that I have found to find custom ROM’s for Android devices is the XDA Developers Forums. The XDA community is filled with smartphone enthusiasts and developers for the Android platform. Check them out and see if you find any ROM’s that would meet your needs. [Link Here]

Custom Themes

Themes are basically the graphics that appear on your Android device. Rooting your device allows you the ability to fully customize just about every graphic on your device. You can load custom themes that totally change the look and feel of your device. Here are some examples:http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=527

Kernel, speed, and battery

There are many custom ROM’s and apps available for rooted devices that will allow you to drastically improve the performance (speed) and also extend battery life on your device. A lot of developers tweak the kernels (layer of code that handles communication between the hardware and software) for added performance, battery life, and more.

Baseband

Rooting your device grants you the ability to update the Basebands on your smartphone. The Baseband is what controls the radio on your device. By updating to the latest Basebands, you can potentially improve both the signal and quality of your phone calls.

Latest Versions of Android

As mentioned earlier, custom ROM’s can allow you to update to the latest version of the Android OS before they are officially released. This is a great feature for those who are tech-savvy and want to stay on top of the latest and greatest software updates before it hits the mainstream crowd. This is also useful if you have an outdated device that is no longer being updated by the manufacturer.

Backing up your device

The ability to easily backup all of your Apps and Data is one feature that is sorely missed on the stock build of Android devices. But if you root your device, backing up everything on your device (both apps and data) becomes a simple task. Titanium Backup is a must have app for anyone who has rooted their devices and wants to backup and restore their phones. [Market Link]

Unlocking Additional Features

By rooting your Android device you also gain the ability to unlock some features that your carrier may charge for. One example is enabling free WiFi and USB tethering, which many carriers charge money for. Now, I’m not suggesting you do this. But I did want to make you aware of the fact that it is possible to do this. However, your carrier may catch on to the fact that you are using your device as a free WiFi hotspot and figure out a way to charge you for it. So use this feature at your own risk!

What are the Disadvantages of Rooting?

Bricking

The number one reason not to root your device is the potential risk of “bricking” it. As mentioned earlier, “bricking” your device means screwing up your phone software so badly that your phone can no longer function properly and is pretty much as useless as a brick. You would likely need to purchase a new Android device since the manufacturer of your device will void the warranty after any attempts at rooting.

Security

There is an increased risk of unknowingly installing malicious software when you root an Android device. Root access circumvents the security restrictions that are put in place by the Android OS. There isn’t really an effective way to tell just what the application intends to do with that “superuser” power. You are putting a lot of trust into the developer’s hands. In most cases, these applications are open source and the community can take a look at the source code to assess the risk. But, nevertheless, the risk is there. Fortunately, malicious software on rooted devices hasn’t really been a problem as of yet. But I thought it was worth mentioning since this could be a potential risk in the future. I’d recommend installing an Anti-Virus and Security App just to be safe. Lookout Mobile Security seems to be one of the best ones available at the moment. [Link Here]

Can I Unroot my device if I change my mind?

Yes. You would need to do some research for your specific type of device. As mentioned earlier, the XDA Developer Forums is the best place to start. [Link Here]

How do I learn how to root my device?

Unfortunately, there is no easy way to teach someone how to root their Android device. Each device has a unique method to rooting and some research most be done on your part. As I mentioned earlier, the best place to start would be the XDA Developer Forums. [Link Here] Another option is to simply Google your model phone and the term root (ex. “HTC EVO root”). Have fun and good luck to all of you! I hope you found this lesson on rooting to be helpful. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment below.

Android Ultimate Backup Guide Without Root or With Root

A good thing about Android OS is, it have some basic backup feature inbuilt to safeguard your data. If you added your Gmail account on your smartphone and activated auto-sync or if you sync it manually before experimenting then it will sync your contact details along with app info to Google cloud server. You can then add the same Gmail id to a new ROM and restore contacts and apps. However, this method not restore app data but install apps that previously you have. Also the default sync method don’t able to backup your massages (SMS or MMS). That’s why we have to take some necessary action before experimenting with your device including flashing ROMs or MODs. If you flashing an official firmware over an old firmware then you don’t require to backup anything as it restore everything as it is, except root access.

3. JS Backup: This is another cool app that you can use to backup various necessary data of your Android system.

Samsung plans Galaxy S5 by April

Samsung Electronics Co will release its Galaxy S5 smartphone by April and is studying the use of eye scanner technology for the first time, as it readies the high-end handset to compete with Apple Inc’s iPhones.

The S5 will be paired with a new wearable device that will be an evolution of the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, Lee Young Hee, executive vice-president of the company’s mobile business, had said on Monday. Samsung, which posted profit this week that missed analyst estimates, will debut the new products together as it also boosts marketing of tablet computers.

"We’ve been announcing our first flagship model in the first half of each year, around March and April, and we are still targeting for release around that time," Lee said. "When we release our S5 device, you can also expect a Gear successor with more advanced functions, and the bulky design will also be improved."

Samsung, which sells one of every three smartphones globally, is adding new features and models to fend off Apple in the high-end market and Chinese makers luring budget customers with handsets for $100. Asia’s biggest technology company will announce at least one other wearable device this year, Lee said without elaborating.

Samsung registered a design in South Korea in October for eyeglasses that can show information from a smartphone and enable users to take calls.

Fingerprint reader
Sales of the S4, the company’s current marquee handset, slowed after Apple released the iPhone 5s and 5c in September. The 5s includes a fingerprint-identity sensor, and Samsung is considering using an eye scanner in its top-end smartphones.

"Many people are fanatical about iris recognition technology," Lee said at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. "We are studying the possibility but can’t really say whether we will have it or not on the S5."

Suwon, South Korea-based Samsung this week posted its first profit decline in nine quarters as high-end handset growth slowed and the company paid employee bonuses. Operating profit was 8.3 trillion won ($7.8 billion) in the three months ended December, falling from 9 trillion won a year earlier, the company said.

Shares of Samsung have dropped 11 per cent from its closing price on December 23 as analysts scaled back projections for high- end handsets, erasing about $22 billion of the company’s market value. Samsung shipped 13 million units of the S4 in the fourth quarter, down from 17 million in the previous three months, Daewoo Securities Co said in a December 23 report.

New design
"The release of the S5 will be very important to Samsung," Lee Seung Woo, an analyst at IBK Securities Co, said by phone on Thursday. "Competition is going to intensify, and it’s not going to be an easy year for the company."

The Galaxy S4 may have fallen short of consumer expectations because its design was too similar to its S3 predecessor, Lee Young Hee said. The next handset likely will be different, she said without providing specifications, including screen size.

"When we moved to S4 from S3, it’s partly true that consumers couldn’t really feel much difference between the two products from the physical perspective, so the market reaction wasn’t as big," she said. "For the S5, we will go back to the basics. Mostly, it’s about the display and the feel of the cover."

Wraparound display
The timing of the release is after February’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Samsung shipped 91 million smartphones in the fourth quarter, up 4 percent from the previous quarter, according to an estimate by KB Investment & Securities Co. The company, the largest maker of televisions and memory chips, is diversifying its product range and using its manufacturing scale to tap new markets.

Samsung’s next Galaxy Note handset may use a three-sided display so messages can be read from an angle. The latest model will be released in the second half of this year and be aimed at the high-end segment.

"We are targeting consumers who want more professional use and tend to be willing to pay more for handsets," Samsung’s Lee said.

Wearable devices
The market for wearable devices may more than triple to about $30 billion by 2018, according to IHS Global Insights. Samsung will attempt to boost sales of its smartwatches by adding functions to check calorie consumption, monitor heart rate and measure stress levels, Lee Young Hee said.

"Healthcare related functions will be the most inherently tied functions to future wearables," she said. "We see a very big potential from there."

The company also sees more growth potential in tablets as it takes on Apple’s iPad line and Amazon.com Inc’s Kindle devices. The tablet computer market will grow more than 15 per cent annually, with more than 240 million units shipped last year, Shin Jong Kyun, head of Samsung’s mobile business, said November 6.

Samsung’s share of global tablet shipments doubled to about 20 per cent last year, Lee Young Hee said. The company, which shipped more than 40 million units in 2013, aims to drive sales growth of its mobile business, which accounts for more than 60 per cent of the company’s operating profit, to fend off margin pressure from the slowing high-end smartphone segment.

Samsung announced its largest tablets at CES, unveiling 12.2-inch versions of the Galaxy NotePRO, which uses a stylus, and the TabPRO, which doesn’t. The largest screens allows users to split the display into four windows running different applications.

"We had put relatively fewer resources and focus, including marketing, on tablets, but from this year we will consider it as one of our key major focuses," Lee Young Hee said.

"We still have room to improve."

Advantages/Disadvantages of Rooting Android phones

 

Rooting  is basically full control over your phone and all its workings. Manufacturers disable this by default. They do this for good reason—and it’s not just to control or limit you. If someone had root access, and he doesn’t know what he is doing, then there could be serious damage to your smartphone. So manufacturers keep devices locked by default to prevent you from turning your phone into an expensive paperweight.

When you give in Root Permissions to your Android phone, it means that you are giving super user root or you can access all system files and give you the ability to change all sorts of things that you could not have normally do. Now you can be able to install and customize the Android operating system. The benefits of Rooting the Android device are endless.
