{Android Users} 8 Reasons You Should Root Your Android Phone

1. Customize everything

After you have rooted your Android device, you can go ahead and customize every inch of the interface. Thanks to various Xposed modules and repositories like GravityBox, you can tweak every element of the interface. You can even change your device’s boot animation or the DPI of the interface to suit your needs better.
2. Custom ROMs


Most people root their Android smartphone, so that they can go ahead and install their favourite custom ROM. Custom ROMs offer a lot of advantages like letting you install the latest version on Android, when your OEM isn’t rolling out an update. Along with that, ROMs bring a ton of additional features and customization options. There are a number of great custom Android ROMs available like CyanogenMOD, Paranoid ROM, Resurrection Remix, so you can choose to your liking.
3. Boost performance

Android has been criticized a lot over the years for its inconsistent performance and while it’s a lot better now, there’s still scope for improvement. Thankfully, rooting your Android device lets you make some tweaks and use some apps that really speed up the performance.
You can use an app like SetCPU to overclock your device’s CPU for a more snappy performance. Overclocking basically means increasing your processor’s frequency for better performance. While this does the performance of an Android device, battery woes are a part of it. There’s also the option of using custom kernels, which bring features and options that might not be officially supported on your device like the ability to control CPU, GPU, screen, battery, sound, RAM and more.
There are also various apps like EX Kernel & Kernel Aduitor, which support various kernels and let you tweak advanced options from the app. Also, there are other dedicated apps only for rooted devices that speed up performance. There’s Speed up Swap, which speeds up performance by emptying memory and GLTools, which offers advanced options for better GPU performance.

4. Access more apps

There’s no scarcity of apps for non-rooted devices but there are certain cool apps aimed at rooted users. Apart from the apps we have already mentioned, there are many more great apps for rooted android users like DriveDroid, Flashify, DiskDigger, DataSync, Device Control etc. that make the best use of the root access to bring you some great functionality and control.

5. Explore new features

One of the best things about rooting is that you gain access to tons of new features to play with. For instance, Xpose framework brings a ton of modules that bring features like multi window, detailed app permissions, native clipboard, YouTube background playback, boot manager and way more. That’s not all though, as apps like IFTTT andTasker bring a lot of cool features if your device has root access, basically giving you the ability to automate anything.
6. Remove bloatware apps & ads

System apps and bloat apps from device manufacturers can cause quite a problem if your device does not have a huge internal storage. Well,rooting brings the ability to remove any system app or bloatware. There are various apps that remove bloatware but we quite like 3C Toolbox due to its advanced app managing features. The app lets you remove system apps but that’s not all, as you can also remove updates to apps, move any app to SD card along with other advanced options. If you are looking for something simple to remove bloatware from your device, you can install NoBloat.
Ads too can be particularly annoying, especially the full page ads some apps bring. Root users can install AdAway (APK file), which is the best ad-blocker app on Android. The app is easy to set up and it blocks ads on both websites and apps. You also have the ability to whitelist/blacklist an app or website.
7. Improve Battery Performance

Android users always complain about poor battery optimisation and if you are one of those users, you should root your device because there are apps & mods that totally refine your device’s battery performance. Greenify is arguably the best battery optimizer app for rooted devices, which brings cool features like auto-hibernation mode, which basically hibernates the apps that are heavily consuming your battery. Apps like Wakelock, Servicely,BetterBatteryStats etc. also make sure that your device makes the most out of the battery.

8. Backup Everything

While Android includes a backup feature for non-rooted users, it’s no match against the abilities of a backup app like Titanium Backup. There are various apps for rooted devices that let you take a complete backup of your device. The best apps are certainly Titanium & Nandroid and they let you backup everything including all the apps, app data, files, settings along with external data that might be part of your SD card. You can then save this backup on your external storage, SD card or even in the cloud. So, if you ever lose or brick your device, you can easily restore a Titanium or Nandroid backup on the new device and feel like nothing happened.
