You’ve probably heard of people who have done “ROOT” on their Android smartphones. You can do ROOT on your Android in just a few minutes. Once you have rooted your device, you have full access to the entire system and can run special applications that require ROOT permissions. These applications can disable even bloatware (unwanted software included on a new computer or mobile device by the manufacturer).
By doing ROOT on your device, you can control application permissions, allow Tethering, and do many other cool things.
WHAT IS ROOT?
We all know that Android is developed on Lunix basis. On other UNIX and Linux operating systems, the root user is equivalent to the Administrator user on Windows. The root user has access to the entire operating system and can do anything.
By default, you do not have root access to your Android device, and some applications do not work without root access.
With ROOT access, you can disable the bloatware that comes with the device, manually deny application permissions, run a firewall, access the entire file system, or tethering from your device even though the tethering feature has been disabled.
You can find many apps that require root access in the PlayStore, although it will not work until you root on the device.

Rooting is not mandatory – you just need to root on your device if you want to do things that need deeper system access.
Before you do ROOT on your Android phone or tablet, there are a few things you should know:
Warranty – Some manufacturers claim rooting voids the warranty on your device. However, this method will not damage your hardware. You can “root out” the device and manufacturers will not be able to tell you that it was rooted.
Security – Google shares, in sharing, a vulnerability in rooted devices that could allow other applications to access your PIN and other personal information. Wallet displays a warning message if you want to run it on a device in ROOT. If you do not use this service for NFC payments, you may want to reconsider the rooting on your device.
Bricking – Rooting is a very safe process. However, there is always some danger of “bricking” the device when you make parameters out of the ordinary – especially if you are trying to install other firmware or install a version of the operating system not supported by a tool. The “bricking” refers to the breaking of the device, making it almost as useful as a Gadget.
When you root, jailbreak, or install a custom ROM, you do so at your own risk. It’s a good idea to do some research before seeing if other people report success when rooting their devices.
The rooting process itself should take only a single click. But, you will need to do some quick things first:
Download and install the Java JDK and Android SDK on your computer before proceeding with this tutorial. Java must be installed before the Android SDK.
Turn on USB debug mode on your Android. On your device, go to Settings> Applications> Development and enable the USB debugging checkbox .
Connect your Android device to your computer using the USB cable. Do not use the SD memory card.
You’ll also need the USB drivers for your smartphone or tablet installed on your PC. SuperOneClick itself should automatically install the appropriate drivers – however, if that fails, you will need to download and install the appropriate drivers from the device manufacturer’s website. Download and install SuperOneClick here.
Extract the SuperOneClick compressed file into an empty folder and run the “SuperOneClick.exe” file as administrator. Then select the “Universal” tab (not Samsung Captivate). In the upper right corner where “Exploit” is written , select zergRush .
Doing ROOT with SuperOneClick
Connect the phone to the computer and click “Root” in SuperOneClick. Several messages will appear in a row, click OK (if everything is OK). Do nothing on your computer or device, just wait.
If the process is successful, the message PASS will appear , disconnect the Android device from the USB cable and turn it off.
Do not worry if the device is slow after the process, wait a few minutes and turn it back on.
Finally, look for the program SuperUser (a skull), if it is there, your device is root enabled. Go back to Settings> Applications> Development and disable USB debugging .
Whenever an application on your device tries to get root permissions, called the su command (as in the su command of Linux), you will be prompted to allow or deny the request.
Open the SuperUser application to control the saved permissions and configure it.
Ready! You can now install and use applications freely, which require root access. We’re going to have more tutorials on things you can do with a rooted Android, please wait.
