Disadvantages of rooting your Android
No matter how perfect or correct a rooting tutor might be, bricking have been far the biggest enemy of rooting any android device. This effect happens as a result of inappropriately rooting a device or follow the wrong steps while doing it. Rooting a device can be very simple depending on the root app you are using when rooting a device. Some are a bit tasking and complicated to use while some are very easy, roots as quick as seconds. Bricking happens when your phone doesn’t just boot past boot animation, you’re stuck in boot up. Even after switching off, restarting or rebooting it remains the same.
For advanced users, they could easily get this fixed but for newbies, it could be a big problem just like it happened when I bricked my TECNO d9. So for the non-advanced user, the only way is to return the phone to the manufacturer’s service centre, if they come to know that the brick or semi-brick was caused because you were trying to root your phone, you might as well be charged for it.
2. Voids Phone’s Warranty
Many don’t want to lose their phone’s warranties just yet, the truth remains that if you root your device say bye bye to your warranty. If anything happens to your phone even when it’s in the warranty period, the company is going to charge you for the repairs. In some of the phones, you can un-root your phone, but in most of the phones there’s is no going back.
