Do you think guys is it worth to root an Android device? And why?
No. UNLESS the phone is old and you no longer use it on a daily basis, then sure. However if you use your phone, and you are not experienced with technology or have to rely on instructions past actually rooting your phone, then no. You can easily screw up your phone without knowing you are.
That, and it voids the warranty on most phones. Unless you do not use your phone and rely on it, then do not root your phone.
I have a Motorola Droid and when the Nexus One came out with live wallpapers, I could not wait to get the update. I did consider rooting my Droid but I decided just to wait it out. Finally the update was pushed to my phone and I had live wallpapers for about 2 days. They seem exciting, but they are actually not. They SLOW down your phone a lot! Everything becomes really choppy and I imagine your Backflip would be the same because we have a very similar phone. The only thing that I consider rooting my phone for is Wi-Fi tethering which lets your computer use your cell phone's internet service as your internet. But it isn't really worth it either because you can do this but with the USB cord. So my advice to you is not to waste your time doing that because it isn't worth it. But if you do, do it, you can restore it if you don't like it.
Yes the warranty is what actually scares me at the moment because I've still a few months of warranty but then when it will expire I guess your thought wouldn't then make sense?
The last part of my post would be void yes, however the content before it would still be a valid point.
sure I rooted May need in a stealthy and programs prohibited programs is a very useful but bad in some time because sometimes errors occur in the device arising from your root
there are many softwares and apps available in the market to root any smart phone with Android System but there are many risk while rooting the phone because there are many chances of damage the phone battery and much more.
I’m unwilling to root, but sometimes, it is needed
sometimes yes or sometimes no...i think you should buy 2 phones
you root your phone and get no warranty. That's sometimes is too expensive
I think it's good to own 2 android phone, the cheap one for rooting or teasing, the expensive one for warranty.
I have a rooted Android phone with the Exodus rom and I love it. It's much faster and the battery lasts forever. It's also fine security wise because you or the applications don't automatically get super user privileges. Also if you have a rooted phone with a voided warranty you can unroot the phone and get the warranty back.
Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices, resulting in the ability to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized apps that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user. On Android, rooting can also facilitate the complete removal and replacement of the device’s operating system, usually with a more recent release of its current operating system.
Rooting lets all user-installed applications run privileged commands typically unavailable to the devices in the stock configuration. Rooting is required for more advanced operations including modifying or deleting system files, removing carrier- or manufacturer-installed applications, and low-level access to the hardware itself (rebooting, controlling status lights, or recalibrating touch inputs.) A typical rooting installation also installs the Superuser application, which supervises applications that are granted root or superuser rights.
