Because of slow Android updates from the manufacturer and issues related to OS, many Android mobile device owners are forced to root their devices. I’ve rooted my Android phone and have never looked back. I love custom ROMs and will keep using them until I buy a newer handset.
Surprisingly, the ROM which I am using gets OTA updates every week. The ROM is open-sourced and maintained by plenty of developers. It is stable and faster than the stock Android OS.
From my example, you can learn that rooting a mobile phone is beneficial. If you own an Android mobile device and its warranty has expired, you must root it. If you do so, you will be able to run a ROM based on latest version of Android. You might know that Android M, N, O offers better features than Android L. Jellybean OS is an upgraded version of Android Ice-cream Sandwich. Both these OS are predecessors of Lollipop OS.
Do you know? Rooting can make your dull phone 10 times faster provided you install the right apps. After rooting and flashing new OS aka ROM, it is important that you download and install the below best root apps so that you have full control over the features of OS.
