ROOT : What is Android Rooting - Advantages and Disadvantages ?

What is Android Rooting - Advantages and Disadvantages ? 

WHAT IS ANDROID ROOTING ??
     - Rooting is the process of allowing users of smartphone tablets, and other devices running the Android mobile operating system to attain privileged control (known as "root access") within Android's sub-system.

WHAT WE CAN DO WITH A ROOT ACCESS ??
    -  With Root Access , you can access and modify files which you can do without rooting your device. Example : Files stored on /data and /system partitions. Having root access also allows you to run an entirely different class of third-party applications and apply deep, system level modifications.

Root also allows you to access certain device features that would otherwise be inaccessible or use existing features in new ways.

Having Root Access isn't the end all-be all of device modification - that title is usually reversed for fully unlocked bootloaders and S-Off. That said, root access is generally the first step on your journey to device modification. As such, root access is often used to install custom recoveries, which then can be used to flash custom recoveries, which then can be used to flash custom Roms, Kernels and other scripts.

Due to its inherent power, having root access is often dangerous. Thankfully, there are root brokering applications such as SuperSU that only grant root access to applications of your choosing. There are also various root-enabled utilities available to help you restore in the event that something goes wrong. For starters, you can use any number of root-enabled application backup tools to backup your applications and their data to your local storage, your PC, and even online cloud storage. And in conjunction with a custom recovery, rooted users are able to perform a full, system-wide Nandroid backup that essentially takes a snapshot of your current smartphone or tablet at any particular time.
