In my opinion, rooting should be the first thing on your checklist if you just bought yourself an Android device. Rooting is basically the process of obtaining superuser rights to access some special functions that are restricted to privileged users only. Basically Rooting provides you with the access to the root of your device and lets you get the most out of it.
Before we proceed with detailing the process, you’ll should make sure that you’ve backed up all your data and have a minimum of 50% of charge on your phone’s battery to make the things comfortable. Also note that the process of rooting may void your system’s warranty.
