Part 1: Before Rooting Android Devices

1. What Is Root
With our Android rooted, we can get the highest privilege so that we can optimize and manage our Android device better.

2. Advantages of Rooting Android Phone Are Abundant
1. Remove pre-install apps to save space and battery;
2. Mute useless alerts or disable app permissions that we don't want;
3. Download some useful third-party apps, beautiful wallpapers and fonts on our Android phone;
4. Upgrade our old Android to the latest Android OS which has more powerful new features;
5. Use our Android phone/tablet and play games with the game controller paired on Bluetooth.

3. Possible Risks of Rooting Android
Though you will get lots of convenience after rooting Android, you should be aware of the possible risk before you decide to root your Android:
1. If your Android is still within warranty expiration, you'd better not root it. Warranty policy doesn't include rooted Android.
2. Your phone might behave wired after rooting and fails when you trying to upgrade your OEM.
3. If mishandled, your Android phone is likely to get bricked.

To prevent all these, you need to make sure that your Android has more than 50% battery left and back up your Android if you still worrying about your Android data.

4. What to Use
There are several useful root programs provided for Android users to root their Android, so that no matter you use Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony, Motorola, Google Nexus or other smartphones that runs different OS of Android, you can find the compatible one for your Android phone/tablet. Today, I'd like to recommend two powerful root tools for you, which have the higher rate of success: One is Kingo Root the other is KingRoot.
