Reasons to root


Feb 21, 2012, 11:15 AM
I know the basic idea behind rooting but was just curious what everyones reason is for rooting. Any particular thing you wanted to be able to do or just to speed the phone up?

You can install 3rd party apps on an android without rooting it. It's not an iphone.

Even so, there are certain applications that can only be downloaded if you have rooted the phone.

Yeah IDK why I listed that one.... that was stupid. Removing bloatware and overclocking are your big reasons. There are a few 3rd party app that only work if it is rooted.... but yeah... my bad.
