What is Android Rooting?
“Android rooting” means running the process or application, that gives you access to administrative commands and functions of an Android Phone operating system. Rooting in an Android phone is like jailbreak in an iPhone. It allows you to unlock the operating system for installing new apps which don’t belong to Google. Moreover, you’ll be able to customize your smartphones apps and features. To make it easy to understand it is like running programs in Windows OS as administrators; or running a command with SUDO in Linux environment. With a rooted phone, you can run apps that access certain system settings, as well as flash custom ROMs to your phone, which allows access to all sorts of extra features.
This comes in handy to users who are having problems to retrieve information from Skype, Viber, WhatsApp and Facebook messages.
