Rooting your Android phone? Google’s rumbled you again

It's a tradeoff, just like with IOS

Do you really need to have your device rooted/jailbroken? If so, you will lose some functionality/features. My cable company also provides a mobile app for watching live tv on my Android phone. My phone is rooted so it refuses to run as do numerous android apps. I don't watch anything on a small screen except the occasional youtube clip. I choose a rooted phone over features I will never use. I don't do any financial transactions on my phone.

If you need to have your entire life on your phone, rooting is not for you.
