In a way, you get administrator permissions by rooting your device which can be dangerous for OEMs as it gives you full control. On a rooted device, for instance, you can delete any base app that you want and you can also block ads so this is bad for business. Anyway, with Samsung Galaxy S7 being the most popular phone this year a lot of people have been looking forward to a root method, and it took a short while but now it’s here.
