Is it possible to root an Android Device without a PC ?
Presently, Android is the one of most customizable mobile operating systems. Android is well-known for its awesome features and capability of customizing, that’s why more and more people get attracted towards it. Almost every mobile manufacturer has started manufacturing mobiles that runs on the Android Operating System. As Android is an open source, every manufacture design in its own way to make different from others but the nature of Android remains the same. Hence the version of Android and UI varies depending on manufacturers.
In fact, manufacturers are very smart; they don’t allow us to exploit Android OS efficiently. As an example, let’s assume you own a Samsung Android Smartphone. The device has some predefined applications installed like messaging, dialer, Samsung apps, etc. Can you remove it completely or replace by some other related apps? Definitely No! Because, these all apps are located in main system files of the Android OS and you can’t locate it without rooting your device.
Rooting is nothing but a procedure to gain administrative privileges on Android OS. By rooting, you can gain full control over Android OS and the ability to replace/delete any apps from the System files. Not only this, there are many advantages and disadvantages of rooting your Android device. In order to supercharge your device you must root it.
Advantages like you can install Custom ROMs, Root applications, and extra-ordinary themes, you can change boot animations, remove stock apps, etc. Apart from all the disadvantage, one of the worst disadvantages of rooting is it voids phone warranty; because manufacturers don’t allow the users to scrutinize the system files, and they are offending him.
Note: This is just an overview of Rooting and its advantages and disadvantages. For detailed guide you can search on Google.
