Rooting your phone or getting access into its root directory is the process of customizing the OS loaded on your device to give you total control over it. When you are in full control of your device and its OS, you can go beyond your phone’s limitations, expand system functionality, and even upgrade it based on your preferences. You are able to do that on a rooted phone simply because rooting gives you access to system files you normally do not have access to.
