Do You Still Root?? by masterfactor(m): 8:33am On Oct 06, 2019
The word root is a technological term use to give reference to permission in any Linux based operating system or kernel. In other operating system like IOS or Windows the term Root is refer to as jailbreak, they all mean the same thing just different name in operating system.
In a layman language root can be describe as a means of getting full control of your mobile phone, for example Mr. A purchase a particular mobile phone with his/her hard earned money and the manufacturer thinks he/she knows what is best for you and decided to limit the function you have access to on your mobile phones and allow you to access only what he/she thinks is safe for you to operate. In technology term ROOT is a process of allowing users of mobile phones(smartphones), tablet and others runing the Linux or Android operating system attains administrative privilege control, Root is not save if it is not done properly and can brick ones device, violation of product warranty is not left out. Over the years, to root or jail break any device is easy due to the development of various software that are developed to perform such task , software like Iroot, Kingoroot, dr.phone root, superuser app etc.

Advantages

1. Support for themes, allowing everything to be visually changed from the color of the battery icon, to the boot animation that appears while the device booting and more.

2. Full control of the kernel, which for example allow overclocking and underclocking the CPU and GPU.

3. Full application control including the ability to backup, restore or patch and edit application, or to even remove bloatware that comes pre-install on many phones.

4. Custom automated system level process through the use of third party application.

5. Ability to install custom software also known as Custom Rom(cynogenmod,lineage os,Resurrection Remix, Paranoid Android and many more) or software such as Xposed, Magisk, BusyBox etc. It allows additional levels of control on a rooted devices.

Mobile phones manufacturer are making some function available to customer in order to discourage them from root, functions like font change, font size, theme etc.
Does any one still root or jail break his/her device in 2019, as for me i dont, because installation of custom Rom is addictive, what is yours??

Would that require the use of a PC?
Or it's just my phone that I need?

yes you need a PC, some MTK device can be unlocked from development mode but it does not reflect in fastboot
