How to Keep Root After OTA Update – You’ll usually lose your root access when you install an operating system update. The OTA update sets your Android system partition back to its factory state, removing the su binary. You do not have to wonder anymore because at this time Asus Zenfone Blog will share How to Keep Root After OTA Update On Zenfone to you.
Why You Lose Root
Android is based on Linux, so Android devices come with a “root” user that functions like the Administrator user account on Windows. By default, Android doesn’t give you access to the root account. Rooting is the process of enabling access to the root account, installing the su binary. Applications can call su to gain elevated privileges, so they can break free from Android’s security sandbox and do more powerful things. Android doesn’t come pre-rooted because of the security problems this could lead to, especially for less technically inclined users.
