    Advantages of rooting ..

    "Rooting" your Android phone does afford you numerous benefits, including;

    1.Running special applications-Superuser is an app that can only be run on a rooted Android phone. This allows you to control which apps have access to the "root" system. Another popular application that "rooting" affords is the ability to tether a computer to your Android phone so that the computer can access the Internet using the phone's data connection. Another program can allow your Android to be used as a WiFi Hotspot without having to pay your provider for the feature.
    2.Freeing up memory-When you install an app on your phone, it is stored on the phone's memory. "Rooting" allows you to move installed applications to your SD card, thus freeing up system memory for additional files or apps.
    3.Custom ROM's-This is the most powerful feature of "rooted" phones. There are hundreds of custom ROM's that can do anything from speeding up the processing speed of your phone to changing the entire look and feel of your phone.
    Disadvantages Of Rooting your phone
    1.Rooting immediately voids your phone's warranty-Once rooted, don't try to bring your phone back for service or warranty work. You are on your own!
    2.Rooting involves the risk of "bricking" your phone-In essence, a "bricked" phone is no better than carrying around a brick in your pocket. The phone is dead when it has been "bricked.

    Other potential disadvantages, though less severe, are still worthy of consideration;

    1.Poor performance-Though the intention of "rooting" a phone is to give the phone more performance, several users have found that, in their attempts to speed up the phone or add additional features, that their phones lost both performance speed and features. Remember that when you "root" your Android phone, you are making changes to the stock operating system.
    2.Viruses-Yes, even phones can get viruses. A common practice that people do with "rooted" phones is to flash their ROM's with custom programs. Whenever you make changes to the code of a software, you run the risk of introducing a virus."
    So if You are not careful with your phone Don't root it :)

    LETS BEGIN! :) Rooting:
    1. Download Root.Zip To Your Computer Then put it on your sd card
    2.Shut down your phone
    3.Put It on recovery mode by pressing volume up, Power button and Home button(you cannot use touchscreen on recovery mode, use up and down volume button to navigate and home button to select) apply update from sd card and select your Root.Zip .
    5.Reboot Your Phone
    WALAH!! YOU HAVE ROOTEN YOUR PHONE!! :D Congratulations :)
    Unrooting: to Your Computer Then put it on your sd card
    2.Shut down your phone
    3.Put It on recovery mode by pressing volume up, Power button and Home button apply update from sd card and select Unroot.Zip
    5.Reboot Your phone

    I'd brought my phone to the service center and they don't even check if it is rooted. But before that, i just unroot first my phone. Make sure also that you have your phone 0 counts in the download mode. It is 1 of causes to void your warranty. :cool:
  3. Oh Hey Friend,
    Thanks for the info :) I have 13 Counts on my download mode hahaha :)) I can fix Bricked phones and Bootloops :D

    You're telling me what I need to know to root, but I need a lot more information. I can download anything to my computer, but I don't know how to get the download to the phone sd card. You will have to explain that for me to proceed. Can you help with more specific information for a someone like me. I want to use my new transphone when I get it as a wi fi hot spot for my PC. The phone becomes my hot spot. I would also like to be able to tether the phone to my PC, both for internet access on the PC from the phone's data connection. Some times I prefer tethering because the phone charges during use.

    Hi Jasneskis. When you have the program on your computer just put the SD card or the micro sd card into the computer card slot and then point the program into the right direction as far as transfering the program to the card is concerned. A micro SD card will need to be put into an adapter to fit into the card slot on the computer.
    Hope this helps you.
