Rooting your Android phone? Google’s rumbled you again

Re: how to root an android phone

1) This sounds like a clickbait site.

2) The point of the article is that more and more Android apps are root-aware and will not work if it's present (some like Android Pay won't work even if it's present but not on). And because of dm-verity being enforced in Marshmallow, many custom ROMs won't work for this purpose anymore unless they submit to formal testing (which many can't due to copyright issues).
