Why to Root?
Starting with why you should root your Android smart phone. You may have encountered with some applications which sometimes require special permission from the Android OS, which is based on Linux and it doesn't allow. These could be simple as taking a screenshot to higher level permissions to the core Android files. Rooting makes your phone faster, increases battery life, allows it to run more apps, custom software and ROMs which allow complete control over every aspect of your device by allowing superuser and admin level permission.

- Warranty – Some manufacturers or carriers will use rooting as an excuse to void your warranty. However, rooting will not actually damage your hardware. You can "unroot" your device and manufacturers won't be able to tell if it's been rooted.
- Security – Google Wallet, in particular, has a vulnerability on rooted devices that could allow other apps to access your PIN and other wallet information. Google Wallet displays a warning message if you run it on a rooted device.
