January 4, 2012 § Leave a comment

One of my popular hobbies is to hang out in a puny projection of the internet, helping other users with modifications and what-not for their phones. Over the course of a month I’ve come to comprehend that there are literally so many first time Android users out there chomping at the bit for root. Generally, the guys and I over at Root-Ed try to educate these citizen so their not back in the chat room the next night begging and pleading for help because they’ve bricked their phone somehow. Don’t get me wrong, Introducing citizen to root and the vast possibilities that are opened up upon rooting is quite enjoyable, but with Christmas coming up I hope to reach out to some of the new android owners and educate them a puny before they resolve to take the plunge. To touch a puny on the topic of the disadvantages of rooting, why shouldn’t a first time user root?

We’ll start off with the uncomplicated fact that Root gives you many more privileges in the Linux operating theory than a normal user account. Your able to entrance and modify theory files such as the framework, which in itself is a former hypothesize why the uneducated should not root for one uncomplicated reason. If one has no knowledge on how to backup and or recover their device, if a theory file is modified, the device could simply make the device inoperable. Not only would one have to worry about that, but one thing any man wants to do when rooted is theme. A popular theme application is Metamorph, an application designed to allow root user’s the quality to; once again, overwrite theory theme files Android found in the framework. If one downloaded and applied a theme not designed for their phone and or framework, we come back to the boot-loop issue. As you can see, there’s some way’s a first time android user could literally brick their device. One other thing to add is that citizen do not even reconsider the fact that once rooted, their manufacturer’s warranty is no longer valid, so if your a phone dropper, that should be a key point in your decision.

Something I’ll be face in a followup post are the advantages of rooting and why it can be beneficial. I’ll also be face an introduction to root and what you should know before attempting to root your device. This post isn’t designed to scare a user out of rooting their device, but to give fair warning what could happen. I won’t touch on the advantages as that quantum of this two piece article is soon to come.
