Root, rooting or root is the method used on Android devices to allow the user to install and run certain applications.Currently, there are applications and programs that can only be installed by the administrator of the operating system.The administrator is the ” higher user hierarchy “, who has the permissions and powers to manage the software on a device , whether it be a smartphone, a personal computer, a tablet, etc.

Thanks to rooting it is possible for general users to be able to run the applications that are being discussed. Various internal permissions and functions are unlocked on the device and access and management is achieved.

What is rooting for?

The action of rooting greatly facilitates the management of files and programs on a device, by any user.

Grant admin privileges to the user

Rooting gives you freedom to modify and manipulate the programs on a device, fully and without the restrictions that a General User usually has within the operating system and other programs.

When rooting, the user has the power to delete the programs that do not serve him, being able to install others on his own, that better adapt to his needs or tastes, and those that cannot be installed on the computer without administrator permissions.

Rooting allows the general user to overclock the processor , which makes the microprocessor operate at frequencies and voltages for which it was not originally designed. In this way, the performance of the microprocessor in a tablet, smartphone or other device that works with the Android operating system is increased.

The Rooting process opens the locks that the android operating system has, allowing changes to be made and programs added to the device (tablet, smartphone, etc.).

Origins of rooting

The action of rooting derives from the Unix and Linux operating systems , in which the root user or administrator has absolute rights and privileges. You have the power to make modifications and change file or folder attributes on the system.

Rooting gives the user full access. The Android operating system, for example, shares origin and some characteristics with Unix and Linux. Android has inherited the circumstance of needing rooting to allow full access to various system functions.

The rooting process opens the locks that the Android operating system has, finally allowing changes to be made and programs added to the device.
