Android Rooting and Unlocking
Similar to iPhone Jailbreaking, we can root android devices. This means that we can install custom firmware which allows the installation of third party root level applications, specially, superuser (su) which allows the execution (running) of elevated applications on the device.
Rooting allows the installation of modified custom firmware — this can be more up to date than original firmware and contain more applications, customisations and tweaks.
Root enabled applications include such functions as firewalls, battery optimizers, overclockers, startup managers, advanced task management, event based tasks (i.e. adjust volume and play music when headphones connected), advanced backups and much much more.
Please note that rootingand unlocking may void your warranty, which we will not be held responsible for. There is also a chance, as with all firmware modifications, that your android device may be damaged in the process (“bricked”) and we will not be held responsible for this — although we would not expect payment. (This has never happened with us and hopefully never will but we have to write the disclaimer.)
A lot of android phones can be unlocked when rooted. We can include unlocking for no extra charge after rooting.
Rooting (and unlocking where possible) android devices costs £25.
Not all android devices can be rooted or unlocked.
