Rooting your Android phone? Google’s rumbled you again

Re: Google Pay = Google Play

And I have a non-rooted Galaxy Prime (and several others), turning off Google Play Services requires it revert to the factory version, which it promptly uninstalls all of the apps.

So you're saying to stop Google Play Services, I need to root my device? Then run some other app to disable Google Play Services?

I tried rooting a Asus tablet to install Cyanogenmod, only to find it wouldn't root. Even if you're claiming a successul root can remove Google Play and still leave downloaded apps, how do I fix the root!

But also *why* should I have to!

This is 100% true.
