Default The Case Against Root: Why Android Devices Donít Come Rooted

Weíve written about rooting your Android smartphones and tablets before, but why donít they come rooted? Google argues that rooting is a mistake for security reasons, as it subverts Androidís security model.

Over the years, Google has added more and more formerly root-only features to Android Ė from screenshots to support for encryption and VPNs. The goal is to minimize the need for rooting.
