Sometimes we can get warning from our Android phones, which says that the storage is running low or the battery icon turns red to inform us of battery lower than 10%. Although they are not really serious, to solve these situation would let us use our devices comfortably. Rooting Android phones or rooting Android tablets is the suitable way not only to prevent those warnings occurring frequently, but also to allow you to perform beyond some limitations.

As for me, to change some original settings like wallpapers and ring-tones is what I root Android for. Besides, iRoot offers hands to make me root my Samsung easily. Of course, you can apply it for rooting your LG, Sony, Nexus, HTC, etc. with Android 2.2 or above. If you have the same problems, come with us to move on.
