Therefore, the deleted or formatted data are still there until overwritten by new data. Stopping using the device is the first step for Samsung Galaxy Data Recovery.

Compared with IOS, although Android technically is an open-source platform, there are still plenty of limitation in some cases. If the users would like to increase the performance of the Android device(generally, a Android phone) or custom the ROM of the phone, you know, most of the final product are still the result of a phone-maker’s skin, or the carrier or manufacturer’s will install some preloaded software which are useless, or even sometimes, a few disabled features.

As the first generation Android phone rolled out, such as HTC Dream, rooting is the first step to add functionality to a phone and often extend the life of the device. For example the G1, HTC Dream, for was officially supported through Android 1.6 Donut, but if you rooted the phone and install “xrecovery” feature, you could load an alternative Rom that offered most of Android 2.2 Froyo’s features.

What is Rooting?

Rooting, generally speaking, is the function that provides users a right to manage and control the phone as an administrator. It is similar to “jail-breaking” an iOS device, This action often done in order to ignore carrier or manufacturer’ limitations or restrictions. Once you achieve “root access,” you can replace or alter applications and system settings, run specialized apps, and more.

The most common reason for rooting is to replace the operating system with a ROM, Some 3rd-party OS that also gives users more control in details. In rooting culture, we’d call that “flashing a custom ROM.”

Why We Root the Android Device?

The reasons for rooting are various, remove any unwanted apps and games that your carrier or phone maker installs when the phone gout from factory. Rooting can grant you a full uninstallation. Deleting apps you’ll never use can also free up some additional storage capacity.
Another main benefit of rooting is to enable the system platform updates faster. From the time it takes for Google to announce a new version of Android to the time your carrier pushes it to your device can be on the order of weeks, months, or even longer. Once rooted, you can often get some of the new platform features through custom ROMs in short order. This could, for some users, add years of life to an Android handset — rather than buy a new phone, flash a new ROM.

Other reasons to root a phone include being able to perform complete device backups, integrate tethering and mobile hot-spot features, and extend the device’s battery life through newfound settings and controls.

How to Root in Easy Way?

What are the Risks for Rooting?

However, a coin has two sides, even if there are many advantages if we root our Android phone, but some weakness we can not ignore. What come to first is rooting your device can void your warranty. This may be the biggest risk for your phone after rooting. If you run into big trouble such as the phone become a brick device, and you’ve added a custom ROM build, your manufacturer and carrier likely won’t offer the after-buying service to you.

Although you can overturn any ROM you flash, and return to the phone’s stock Android OS with as much ease as you installed the new ROM in the first place. However, If you’re not careful, or don’t follow the steps properly, you could end up with a bad ending.

Lastly, rooting may cause data loss from Android, because the process of rooting need to wipe the device or the memory card, some old Android device running a old version of Android os (Android 1.6 Android 2.1) can not support to install apps to memory card, so when we do rooting on these device, we have to do partition for memory card to make a ext3 or ext 4 partitions which are the Linux system can read. In this process, if we do make a backup for the Android device or the memory card, all the data in them will be lost which will trouble us.
