Rooting in Japan
I got my SGS3 about three to four days before heading to Japan. So I didn't have much time to explore the phone completely. And one thing I always do with my Android devices is root them. Why? Just because I can.
This was just as we have arrived at our hotel. I took a quick shower had late supper, which I bought from a 24 hours departmental store, yeah, 24 hours. Then got online, and looked for the root.
The actual process was not that difficult. If you get everything ready, less than sixty seconds its done. But a lot of people are a bit weary, if its their first time. Some iOS users think its similar to jailbreaking. No, its a different thing. Android devices still can install non store applications, as long as you have the apk, or installer files.
I like to root my device so some applications have access to system settings. You can live without rooting your device, seriously.
