What is Rooting?

Rooting is the process of allowing users of phones, tablets and other devices which have the Android mobile operating system to attain privileged control. It is also called as the root access. Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices. Thus, rooting gives 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.
To root the Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge means to free up its memory – both of the RAM and storage variety. So think twice before you start to root your phone. Besides that, we also would like to warn you a few things when you root your Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge.
