How To Root Xiaomi Redmi 5A And Install TWRP Recovery

The term Rooting is to get the highest execution permissions on Android (root) so that you can modify the software code or install other software that is not normally permitted by the manufacturer. Getting privileged access rights on Android has its own strengths and weaknesses. The strengths that you can get from Rooting are:
  • Full customization for almost every theme / graph
  • Download any application, regardless of the application store they installed
  • Extend battery life and increase performance
  • An update to the latest version of Android if your device expires and is no longer updated by the manufacturer

But if you do it incorrectly, it can create damage. And even done correctly, if your cellphone doesn't have the right antivirus protection for Android, rooting makes your device open to all types of malware.

With great strength, it is a big responsibility. There are a number of things that you might have to consider if you want to do an Android Rooting of your Xiaomi Redmi 5A device:

  • You can turn your smartphone into a Brick. It's possible that your smartphone will become a Brick after Rooting can happen, but! Not all smartphones are Brick after Rooting, only a few high-potential smartphones are Brick.
  • You have canceled the cellphone warranty. Having a cellphone that is guaranteed is indeed an advantage that we have after buying a new smartphone device, but! If you decide to do Rooting, then you have canceled the warranty of your Xiaomi Redmi 5A device. You can do Rooting if you believe your smartphone hardware will not be damaged during the validity period.
  • Rooting means you have weakened your Android's security door to be infiltrated by malware.

Well! The above are the advantages and disadvantages of the privileges you get from the Rooting process. Now take the best decision in your opinion, whether you still want to do Rooting or not.
