Anyone wanting to install a custom ROM or flash a custom kernel will probably need to root the Bluboo Xtouch smartphone before those options are possible. While it’s true installing a custom ROM on a smartphone is one of the most popular reasons to root a device, it’s not the only reason. Many people root Android for no reason other than to install applications. These applications that require root access to your internal system to run are powerful and can do a variety of tasks.
One root application we recommend people give a try after flashing the SuperSU on the Bluboo Xtouch during the guide below is the Dumpster app. With Dumpster, you can fetch files you have deleted and restore them. Anyone missing a photo of a special someone and wishes they never deleted it can do that with Dumpster. The Dumpster application can restore photos, PDFs, music files, video files, and other data you might have lost. Dumpster is one of the best rooted apps that can help you restore memories, as well as save money.

- Rooting the Bluboo Xtouch smartphone will likely void any warranty arrangements you had with your manufacturer. Some device manufacturers do allow for rooting, so you might want to inquire and see what they say.
