What does rooting means?

Android OS was built on the Linux kernel, hence it inherited the Linux style of permissions (dates back to the Unix OS), the permissions define who can access files and directories in the system with three permissions:

  1. Read.
  2. Write.
  3. Execute.

The file owner can define the above three permissions, but what about the OS files (files created when installing the operating system)?

The root (by default) is the only user that can have all the permissions (read, write and execute) to system files, this means that having root privileges grants full control of the system, thus you can tune the system (or damage it) as you like.

The same goes for Android, to have root access on an Android device means to have complete control (read, write and execute) of the OS files, but by default, you are a user with limited access to system functions (what the manufacturer permitted). That is why you need rooting tools such as Kingo Android ROOT.

If want to read more about Linux/Unix permissions then this is a good reference for you.

Do I have to root my Android device?

No. You don't necessarily have to root your device, but some users may need to root their devices for many reasons, including:

  • Using apps that require root access.
  • Remove bloatware (software included by the manufacturer).
  • Remove manufacturer's restrictions.
  • Access and mod system files (customize Android OS).
  • Experiments for educational purposes.
