Quick Guide: How to Jailbreak Android Devices

The Android OS has grown to surpass iOS as the most used platform with 72% of all smartphone users using Android devices. There are several reasons why most people choose Android. But perhaps the most important one is the ability to customize and tweak the OS to meet any user’s needs. One of the ways to get the most out of your Android device is to jailbreak it.

You’ve probably heard the term jailbreak in relation to iPhones and other iOS devices. With Android devices, it is often referred to as rooting. Essentially rooting an Android device is the same as jailbreaking it.

Why Jailbreak Android?

If you’ve never thought about jailbreaking your Android device, you may be wondering why do it. Why go through the process? What good will it do? Well, the following are just some of the top reasons why jailbreaking your device may be a good idea.

Get incompatible apps

Have you ever wanted to install a certain app that your friends are just raving about only for Google Play Store to display a message saying you can’t?

It can happen because some phone carriers will restrict apps for a variety of reasons. Jailbreaking your device allows you to bypass this restriction and install apps that were previously incompatible with your device.

Block Ads on apps

Some apps can be quite annoying in the way they display Ads every time you use them. If you’d like to block these Ads when playing a game on your device or browsing, jailbreaking your device will help with that.

You can block these advertising networks by blocking them on the root levels of your device in much the same way you would block a website on your Wi-Fi network.

Back up everything on your device

We all know how important it is to back up the data on your device. Yet, with an unrooted device, you are unable to back up everything. Jailbreaking your Android allows you to install apps like Titanium Backup that can then help you back up everything on your device including all your settings and apps.

Back up everything on your device

Disable or remove stock android skins

Device manufacturers like Samsung and HTC will often modify the Android skins to one they think you will like. The problem is, sometimes these modified skins are often too bulky (taking up too much space on your device) or too ugly. A jailbroken device gives you the ability to remove these skins and make your Android device as beautiful as you want it to be.

Unlock hidden features

There are lots of hidden features on your Android device that you may never have access to unless you jailbreak the device. Some of the coolest ones include the following:

  • Attach a PlayStation controller to your device and use it when playing games.
  • Download and use apps that are not yet available in your country.
  • Block callers from calling at certain times.
  • Use your device’s camera in high-FPS modes and even enable 249fps slow motion even if your phone doesn’t have the necessary features.

Flash a custom Kernel

Perhaps the biggest advantage you get with a jailbroken device is the ability to flash a custom Kernel. A Kernel is what your device uses to communicate with the apps installed on it. The benefits you get from a Kernel will depend on the particular Kernel, and range from prolonged battery life, better performance and a whole host of other benefits that will improve your experience with an Android device.

With dr.fone, jailbreaking your Android device is a much more simplified process. You can experience all the benefits of a jailbroken Android device in a very short time.
