What is Rooting?

It is not possible that every user of SGN will be familiar with this root thing. It is sure that most of you have heard the term but some of you have no idea what kind of beast is this.

Every Android phone has a special administrator access. This is controlled by the manufacturer. The users are not allowed to access the core system areas of the handset unlike a PC. Rooting is nothing but hacking to get entry to all areas of your phone. By rooting it you can recover the full right of your phone.

So, you can use special programs and scripts on it which need to have special administrator permission like changing the clock speed of your phone’s CPU or installing a custom ROM.
