Rooting Your Android Device Side Effects That Will Make You Rethink

For Android devices, the handset manufacturers do not provide full access to the files. To gain complete accesses go for rooting the device. Rooting an Android device simply means to enable access the device’s main directory; modify system files and other permissions, based on Linux algorithms. In windows terms, it can be termed as the administrative rights. Rooting gives you control over a number of variables and functions. Such as the user can install and use a number of apps and programs which were probably not possible with a standard device, that mean user can install apps that require administrative privilege, install new custom ROM, apply custom themes any many more customizations.

Even though, if its bring many benefits, it has some critical side effects also. Here we discuss three major spin-offs of rooting an Android handset, whether it is a tablet or handset.

Devoid of warranty

Even an attempt for rooting will nullify the warranty of your device. It is one of major side effects of rooting. Manufacturers sell their new products with a service contract for at least one year. If the device has any fault during the period the company will provide free repair or replace the set with a new piece. But any effort to root the handset will automatically end the warranty and its manufacturer won’t further provide any free service for the device. In case of any fault after rooting, users will have to get it repaired at their cost. However USA citizens this is not an issue, they can claim warranty even, if their s devices are rooted.


Bricking is a critical situation that you won’t be able to smoothly use your Android phone further. Bricking means total mess-up of the software of a device, which is indeed one of potential side effects of rooting. It often happens when an unprofessional person tries to root an Android handset. It also occurs when an inappropriate tool is used to root the device. After bricking, most devices won’t be usable anymore.

Battery may go weak

Battery life and the default firmware of a device are highly related. If a user installs any unauthorized program or custom ROM battery life of the device will go into trouble. There is better chance that you will lose battery longevity of your device to a huge low after rooting. For example, a device with 10 hours battery life may only get four to five hours after rooting. There are many reasons, sometimes it may be an apps bug, or missed calibration of the “batterystat.bin” system file. Most of the situation, this kind of battery drains faster, after flash a custom ROM. To fix this issue you can calibrate your android phone, tablet battery, and you can read more information in our earlier post in here.

Android handset users should take much care in rooting their devices. Proper tools should be used to perform the activity. If users are unable to do rooting, a professional programmer should be appointed for the task. A beginner or inexpert person may kill your device. Anyway, as you do root a device, you will nullify its warranty and sometimes you may lose its battery life as well. So along with enjoying a freedom from the manufacturer or carrier restrictions, you will have to meet up with these critical conditions also.
