You may wonder why should you root the phone and risk your warranty. There are some advantages that often tempt a user to root his android phone. Some of these might include the ability to remove system apps which eat up the RAM and the battery. Also, they occupy a huge amount of internal space. After you root your phone, you can also automate tasks on it using Tasker. You can convert system apps to user apps using Titanium Backup and a lot more can be made possible.

Before you root your phone, we advise you to back up all data on your phone, in case you need to reset the phone. Rooting does not usually result in loss of data. Also, make sure you have the device drivers installed on your computer.

Backup Data

  1. Back up all apps using ASTRO File Manager. You can get the APK files using ASTRO and later restore it. Rooted users can use Titanium Backup which also backs up data along with the apps.
  2. Back up all contacts to SD card.
  3. Backup SMS on Android.
  4. Backup call log on Android.
  5. Have minimum 60% charge on your phone else you might get stuck while the update process is running on your device.
  6. Remove any security or Anti-virus app if you have them installed.
  7. Enable USB Debugging. This can be don by Settings>Applications>Development and making sure that USB Debugging is checked.
