What is Rooting on Android

Rooting your device means obtaining “superuser” rights and permissions to your Android’s software. With these elevated user privileges, you gain the ability to load custom software (ROM’s), install custom themes, increase performance, increase battery life, and the ability to install software that would otherwise cost extra money (ex: WiFi tethering). Rooting is essentially “hacking” your Android device. In the iPhone world, this would be the equivalent to “Jailbreaking” your phone.

What is TWRP

To install a new Operating System, or ROM, in Android’s case, you first need to unlock its bootloader. Now the bootloader does what it says and manages your boot preferences, just like the bootloader and boot manager in laptops. As it doesn’t need to be done in a computer or laptop, it is necessary to unlock it to install a custom recovery on your phone. Twrp is a custom recovery like cwm, and benefits of having a custom recovery are many, just like your windows recovery menu which let you reset your laptop or factory default it which just refreshes the window as it was just installed. So a recovery in a phone is just like the PC one, but having a custom recovery is necessary, as it provides a lot more features
