First off, why root an Android device?
Rooting a device is a course adopted by many people. Rooting basically allows you access to the whole device and its programming, and takes away any restrictions the developers might have put. Rooting can be done for a variety of reasons:
- Your phone doesn't have enough space and you want to do away with the default apps.
- You want more customization.
- You want to experiment with apps that only work on rooted devices.
However, you need to pick the right app to help you in your rooting journey – whether it is providing information, checking rooting status or any other relevant step.
