Root Android Lollipop Phones In One Click

Rooting is what first comes to our mind after buying a new Android phone, which ofcourse is kind of necessary for many. Default settings including personalization and customization that comes with the device may not be satisfying and configurable (or tweakable) due to restrictions set by manufacturers, and that’s where ROOT proves to be more important.

I asked myself, why do people strive so hard and takes too much risk just to root their Android phones when Google is indeed working hard to meet the requirement of the people? The answer that came to my mind was because people want something different, you can’t expect them to stick with one setting, one interface, one menu, one icon, one notification bar for a lifetime. They want something new because as time goes on the new becomes old and everything looks like shit. It’s like wearing same cloth everyday.

Another reason is because some people (like I) don’t like to be limited, they want freedom to do whatever they want and you can’t get that without ROOT. Also, Android phone can be further enhanced which includes increasing battery life, using custom ROMs and recovery, and deleting bloatwares that ain’t needed, but all of these also requires ROOT. However, things are not getting easier with each update release. While rooting previous Android versions (Froyo, Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat) are now as easy as cutting a cake with a knife, the newly released Android version which is Android 5.0, Android 5.1 Lollipop put a stunning face to ROOT.
