  1. You loose your Manufacturer’s warranty:

Definitely no body want that but you can again have it after unrooting your device. It entire depends on you what you want. Unrooting can be tricky and might not be available for every device so beware of it.

  1. Privacy Concerns and Security Issues:

You might experience some problems that might be caused by some application as now there are no restrictions any command runs whether it’s good or bad . So some viruses or worms or Trojans may take your device some really big problems. Some software  such as keyloggers can also monitor your all phone activities such as calls , sms and your browsing history and send it to some person therefore your privacy may be ruined.

  1. Risk of Bricking your Phone

It’s the worst problem that can happen after rooting. Bricking will not start your phone as it will stuck after your company’s logo appears while booting your device. Making your phone useless, but don’t worry if you are experienced and use trusted softwares there are very less chance of your phone getting Bricked.

Simple process of Rooting ..

  1. Rooting starts by unlocking the BootLoader,BootLoader is a lowest level program in your device that decides which programs will run as soon as your device starts. It’s by default locked by the manufacturer and unlocking it will ruin your warranty of your device.
  2. Install the softwares required for rooting your device .

There are different methods of root for different manufacturers, so can easily find the process of rooting your device by searching it on google.

My Opinion ?

Well guys I hope by now you might have understood what’s rooting but you might be confused about

Should you root your device or not ?

Well Rooting will not harm your device when you download the softwares from trusted sources such as Google Play. But the problem comes when you download apps from some untrusted sites. Yes you know internet is full of bads and goods, so trusting some unknown sites can be dangerous.

Tip after Rooting: Always download softwares after rooting from trusted sources such as Google Play.

Otherwise it’s always risk and anything can happen, especially with ROMS , you get them from websites that cannot be fully trusted . Once I bricked my phone after install some ROM on my device (it means that it was not able to open after that ), so I send it to company where they flashed it and then it worked again.

Some Download and install custom ROMS on your device at your own risk after rooting.

If you want to explore more from your device then you should definitely root your device.

But if you are satisfied with the your phone and doesn’t want anything more from it then you should not root your phone.
