wat is rooting ??and y shoud v do it ???

Generally we all know Android is an open source operating system but users on advance level knows it comes with some limitations that one cannot gain full access to some of its features. Basically these limitations are there for inexperienced users to avoid unnecessary damage to their devices. There are restrictions for users so they don't end up messing up their devices or settings.

Take an example of Windows Operating System. If you try to trick something in Systems folder or anything tricky you would do to your device you will end up having errors, booting issues and etc. But what if you are not allowed to enter the System folder of your operating system? Yeah you got the idea now, you will not be able to trick it and so you won't be having any issues or whatsoever.

Your Android devices by default comes with this security mechanism enabled known as Bootmenu Locked,  S-On, Unrooted.

Now from above mentioned Windows Example we can say it comes locked means we are unable to access our systems folder. Now to access this folder we need to Root , S-Off or unlock bootmenu

Now you know what rooting is. It means gaining superuser permissions or, as it is more popularly known, rooting your Android smartphone/tablet is the process by which you bypass the limitations put in pace by your device manufacturer to become the true master of your device. Yes A Master!
Further there is an app called Super User is installed in your device to allow or control access to different applications or features.
