You’ll try something else for a change as far as your smartphone’s concerned. This something else is crucial if the device’s previous performance hasn’t been up to par. The tool that does its job on the phone is SRSRoot. It’s not an ordinary instrument. The SRSRoot is an app which comes prepared. The list of the things it delivers for your handset is quite generous. We’ll reveal everything on that after you get some info on this app.
The benefits of this procedure
The rooting tool works with many devices. Don’t worry if your phone’s OS is Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. This dedicated tool doesn’t delete a gadget’s operating system. It actually keeps it, no matter the default version. Released 2 years ago, your phone includes this CPU: dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9. The slow speed you’ve been experiencing till now will be a thing of the past. Your phone’s processor will surely move significantly faster. The SRSRoot is the sort of rooting tool which doesn’t bother your device with bloatware. The Philips W536 will also avoid security problems.
Your Philips W536 has a battery which will last more after the rooting. The app will make it very easy for you to personalize the phone. Different root-only apps, new features and admin / superuser permission are also list of rooting benefits. As are these: custom ROMs. To use a rooted phone, you need a Build ID. This is the version we settled upon: Philips_W536_1249_V09_RU. You absolutely can use another one. The app, which is fully powered by an SRS Server, accepts all kinds of Build IDs.
If you go with an update later, the root access will be gone. Another problem when upgrading a rooted device is this: its system partition ends up completely revoked. The phone will not be separated from its important data. The device’s internal / external SD cards aren’t in danger of sharing that fate.
