Looking for pros and cons of rooting.

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello all!

I'm contemplating rooting my galaxy nexus and am looking for pros and cons as well as specific answers.

1. If I were to root, would i be able to travel internationally with use of my phone for voice, data and text with no charges from my mobile carrier?

2. Will I be able to download paid apps, games, books etc for free?

I am looking forward to answers πŸ™‚ oh yes, i've already downloaded the wugfresh unlock kit to my computer but am having problems downloading and installing the driver software for my nexus.

Thanks πŸ™‚

Looking for pros and cons of rooting.


Rooting your device helps you to  obtain “superuser” rights and permissions. If you want the best from your tool, in that case I believe rooting is the lone way to attain that.

Your battery life can be increased, you can do away with the Google bar, soft key switches for a bigger size of the screen and can capture screen shots by just pressing the power button.

With rooting and this super power you gain the ability to load custom software and you can now install custom themes, higher performance, increased battery life.
