Do You Really Need Rooting Your Android Smartphone In 2021

rooting Your Android Smartphone In 2021

Android is the world’s most used mobile operating system. But Android has some hidden features that general users cannot access by default. To access those features, users need to go through a process called Rooting.

What’s Rooting?

Rooting allows users of the Android mobile operating system to attain privileged control, also known as root access over various Android subsystems. Android is based on a modified version of the Linux Kernel. The Android device gives similar access to administrative (superuser) permissions as on Linux or any other Unix-like operating system such as FreeBSD or macOS.

Advantages

  • Rooting will allow removing unwanted system applications
  • To Block ads permanently Root is needed
  • Some smartphone OEMs don’t allow customization to some extent like themes, fonts, and emojis. Users can customize the smartphone as the user wants after rooting.
  • Sometimes, the rooted devices can run Linux distribution optimized for smartphones on it.
  • Users can get all hidden and advanced access to the device.

Disadvantages

  • Rooting will void the warranty of the device.
  • The device won’t get OEM software support properly.
  • There is a high chance of bricking while rooting. 

Now, do you really need to root your Android smartphone in 2021?

If you asked the same question 5 or 6 years back, the answer would be “if you’re adventurous and want more features than you usually have like customization, block ads, and suggestions then you should root your device”. But now the answer is different as many OEMs are making their one custom skin for their devices in which users can customize. Besides, users can get access to some advanced features that the user didn’t before without it. Even some latest versions of Android e.g. Android 12 supports customization. Still, few things need root to do them, e.g. installing hacking tools, Linux distribution optimized for smartphones, etc.
