In the Android world, a device is deemed useless if it’s not rooted or unlocked. At one side rooting and unlocking bootloader are some of the most fan favorite buzzwords and at the other, they are the most despised words too. Rooting definitely optimizes your device, increases performance and enriches it with fantastic features using the custom ROMs. But then it also voids the warranty, at times bricks the device and the sort. Which keeps many from rooting their Android devices.
This gets even more wound up when the phone comes with a locked bootloader from a carrier. The Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was also deemed to be one of the most secure devices. But do our developers stay quite? Adam Outler came up with this simple tool for rooting, unlocking bootloader and installing a custom recovery tool.
