What you must know before going into root

I’m going to try and explain this from two angles.

1. Manufacturer/retailer’s angle: When you root your phone, you loose your ability to claim warranty should there be anything wrong with your phone even when the fault is not due to rooting the phone. Apps such as banking apps and other information sensitive apps might not run at all whenever they detect root on your phone (unless you go in the way of magisk systemless root). Rooted phones are deemed vulnerable to attacks from malwares such as a rootkit disguised as another app just to steal your log in info or spy on you.

Noted: Be careful with the types of apps you allow to gain root access. Don’t just grant all Apps root-access.

2. User angle: Rooting does not damage (repairable software damage) your phone. What damages your phone is the process/method utilized to gain root and what you do with root when you eventually have it. Rooting a phone is just a means of obtaining administrative privileges as seen on Microsoft window OS.

If there is no  answer to your question regarding the goodness or danger of rooting an android phone as it depends on the following:

  1. why root?
  2. who is carrying out the rooting process?
  3. what should be done next if something go wrong during rooting process or during root usage
  4. what will I be doing with root access?

If you can’t answer those questions, then rooting is probably not for you.

What you will gain from rooting
