Operating systems on our smartphones and computers, in general, can be fun a lot of the time. That fun is quickly stifled if you are using an operating system without many permissions working in your favor. One of the perks of being an administrator of an operating system is that you can assign different privileges to different users, and there are many reasons as to why that is a good thing. However, the problem with Android for many people out there is that as soon as they buy the device, they are not given these administrator permissions to choose. That’s where rooting the Android operating system comes into play, and it allows people to gain full control over an OS, unlike the way it is when it first comes out of the box.
Rooting the Android operating system isn’t for people who have not experienced web geeks or Android geeks in general. There are legitimate reasons for Google and Android electing to sell its operating system locked, and we don’t argue with those. However, Google and Android also don’t argue with us when we say some people should have every right to open up an operating system so they can do what they need to do as long as they know what it is they are doing. Welcome to the world of rooting Android operating systems.
