Before we proceed in rooting your android device let me explain what is the meaning of android maybe someone out there don't know what is android. And of course the meaning of root in android, also the advantage and disadvantages of rooting your device.
What is Android?
Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android's user interface is mainly based on direct manipulation, using touch gestures that loosely correspond to real-world actions, such as swiping, tapping and pinching, to manipulate on-screen objects, along with a virtual keyboard for text input. In addition to touchscreen devices, Google has further developed Android TV for televisions, Android Auto for cars, and Android Wear for wrist watches, each with a specialized user interface. Variants of Android are also used on notebooks, game consoles, digital cameras, and other electronics.
Android has the largest installed base of all operating systems of any kind. Android has been the best selling OS on tablets since 2013, and on smartphones it is dominant by any metric. Read sources here.
What is Root?
Rooting is jailbreaking for Androids and allows users to dive deeper into a phone’s sub-system. Essentially, it’ll allow you to access the entire operating system and be able to customize just about anything on your Android. With root access, you can get around any restrictions that your manufacturer or carrier may have applied. You can run more apps, you can overclock or underclock your processor, and you can replace the firmware.
And rooting also means you have root access to your device—that is, it can run the sudo command, and has enhanced privileges allowing it to run any apps that has root permissions. You can root either by installing the Superuser application or by flashing a custom ROM that includes root access. Some source Here.
One of the most obvious reason to root your Android device is to clear your self of the bloatware that are impossible to uninstall in your Android device system app. To customize your device. Change and flash a custom ROM for your device. Unlock hidden features and install "Incompatible apps". Boost your phone's speed and battery life and etc. And that was the Advantages of rooting android.
If there's advantage there's also its disadvantages. the very first is you will void your device warranty, make sure once you root your device the warranty of your phone is expired already or else, it will be a waste of time trying to claim warranty cover for the damages. Higher vulnerability to viruses, because as you root your device you can now change custom ROM and in that way you can get some viruses by downloading custom ROM and installing it to your device in which that viruses are always in the internet.
