Important terms that should understand Before rooting.

  •  Stock roms are provided by manufacturers this is the rom that came with your phone another 

example would be miui from xiaomi or  vibe ui  from lenovo.

Flashing - in android flashing is same as installing something on your phone for example  flashing a 

rom means installing a new os on your phone or flashing a recovery means installing a new recovery 

on your phone .

Superuser - Superusers are apps that handles root permissions for you .so that every app on your 

phone doesnt have superuser permission and also it notifies when an app requires root access. The most popular android superuser app is the SuperSU from chainfire.
techmidroid bootloader

Bootloaders - Anything that has an os has a bootloader what bootloaders do is check whether your os

is is official as loads it into the ram.

Unlocking Bootloader - an unlocked bootloader is essential if you are planning to use custom roms 

since always  at the start the bootloader checks whether the os is official.

Bricked device -  It stands for  that has broke during the process of rooting . A bricked device is useless.
  •  Soft brick  -  It usually happens when you try to flash an os that isn't compatible with your 
  •  Hard brick - Hard brick devices are literally non usable this happens due to hardware failure 
            which can be only solved by repairing or replacing the broken hardware.

 What is rooting ?

                  Rooting in one word could be defined as unlocking your phone from all the software 

based restrictions that your device manufacturer has placed in the os.

Why root your device?
android root

                  Well you can bypass all the software based  restrictions placed by your manufacturer and

became the real boss of your phone some of the stuff you can do after rooting your phone are,
  •  Remove bloatwares that came preinstalled on your phone  which are useless and wastes

           battery and memory working as background procesess.
  •  Install  apps that requires root access like xposed , greenify or afwall.

  • Install custom recovery and custom roms which are better than your stock rom like

          lineage or resurrection remix.
  • Install custom kernels that allows overclocking and underclocking of your cpu.
  • Take full backup of your phone incase of an issue which can save you a lot of time using your
          custom recovery or apps likeTtitianium backup.


How we are able to get root  ?

                                                             Rooting is done by using exploits and tricks which uses back 

doors in the android kernel or os so technically you are hacking your own phone.

How to get root access ?

                 The process of rooting a phone is different for each devices out there so you might want to 

look at tutorial for your specific device . There are a lot of websites that you can find info about

 rooting your specific device but make sure that it is legit.I would recommend checking out xda-

One click root procesess for android

       There are one click root options available like kingoroot and kingroot which simplifies the

 process of rooting your phone. but these apps doesn't support all the devices.

Stuff you should do before rooting any device.

  • Take full backup of your phone in case something goes wrong.

  • Charge your phone fully if possible cause you don't want your phone to die while you are rooting.

Stuff you should not do.

  • Make sure you visit websites which provide legit info.

  • Always read tutorials in full before trying it.cause acting stupid can brick  your device.

  •  Never try out root tutorials intended for other devices

 Never give superuser permissions to apps that that you don't know or you don't trust cause apps with 

superuser permission can literally do anything on your phone like spy on you or send your private 

info like photos to someone else which is not something you would want.
