After reading this you may or may not want to root that android phone. Because i will be comprehensively explaining the advantage and disadvantage of rooting your android phones. Oops, forgive my bad, do you know what rooting is? If not, before we go into the advantage and disadvantage of it let's take a quick glance for newbies sake the meaning of rooting.

According to Wikipedia.

“Rooting is the process of allowing users of smartphones, tablets and other devices running the Android mobile operating system to attain privileged control (known as root access) over various Android subsystems. As Android uses the Linux kernel, rooting an Android device gives similar access to administrative ( superuser) permissions as on Linux or any other Unix-like operating system such as FreeBSDor OSX. Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices. Thus, rooting gives the ability (or permission) to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized applications(“apps”) that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user. On Android, rooting can also facilitate the complete removal and replacement of the device’s operating system, usually with a more recent release of its current operating system.”

People still rooting phones? Android phones are so good now that rooting is kinda redundant in my opinion. Rooting use to be a thing when android was still growing and filled with lot of bugs and very bare. The last time i rooted a phone was the Galaxy S3 which was filled with millions of bloatwares. However, even the low tier phones are pretty good for their prices this days. But, if you want to tinker and cath fun, feel free to root, but like the OP said, be careful and make sure you know what you are doing.

Are there no android apps that can root your phone just by clicking a button? If this is possible, why the issue of hard bricking? Or is is that these rooting apps are not smart enough to know what they are doing on your phone.

Last time I used an iteL, it1452, it was unto table. I tel do not use mtk processors, it's spreatrum processors being utilised, and it's really hard to root a spreadtrum chipped device but you could still root it sha,

Boot to recovery, flash a super user zip, it will fail, boot back to system and install king root then attempt to root. If it doesn't work, repeat these steps
