About Rooting phones
Rooting is the Android equivalent of jailbreaking, a means of unlocking the operating system so you can install unapproved apps, deleted unwanted bloatware, update the OS,
replace the firmware, overclock (or underclock) the processor, customize anything and so on.
Of course, for the average user, this sounds like — and can be — a scary process. After all, rooting around in your smartphone’s core software might seem like a recipe for disaster.
One wrong move and you could end up with bricked handset.
Thankfully, there's a utility that makes rooting a one-click affair: KingoRoot.
It’s free and it works — though not with all devices.
I originally tested Kingo on a Virgin Mobile Supreme and samsung glaxy j7; the process proved quick and easy. More recently, I used it to root a OnePlus One, and this time it was even easier — because an app did all the work.
