Rooting an Android phone allows Android users to boost their handset's performance, install non-approved applications, expand internal storage and block advertisements. Inexperienced users, however, are likely to "brick" their phones (make them useless by modifying them incorrectly) if they try the rooting their Android phone or tablet without following proper instructions.
Tips and Warnings
