When it comes to technology, there are basically two kinds of users. There are those who are comfortable with the way the technology was bought and have no reason to question why or how the technology functions the way if does. The other kind of users are those that love to empower themselves with every available information about the technology and would delve into its intrinsic nature in order to get the very best from that technology.
When it comes to android, ‘rooting’ is the word used to gain access to the device operating system. There are quite a number of benefits to be achieved when an android root is done on a device. Android rooting provides users with a better user interface and features than they would ever imagined.

To get more possibilities with functionality on your new user interface, there are several custom ROMs you may want to consider.
