ANDROID ROOTING – A MEDLEY OF IDEAS

November 8th, 2013 - Posted by admin

“What, again? I’m sick and tired of it!” – You can exclaim in irritation, but it’s really vitally important if you intend to seriously fathom your phone’s abilities. Repetition is the mother of knowledge, so, let’s repeat the basic points.

What is rooting?

Rooting is a technical term that denotes the special process undertaken upon a cell phone after which you can get access to the administrative commands and functions of an operating system.

When you root an Android phone, you start acting as the one and only administrator of the phone, and no Sprint/Verizon/T-Mobile/AT&T’s software can get the upper hand in it. Power is entirely yours now.

You modify your phone’s operating system to allow different applications and software not presupposed to be installed at your phone by the factory set; that is the so-called “root permission”. In simpler words, you grant certain applications “work visa” (a permit) to work freely on your phone or Android device, removing “factory-installed janitor”.

Rooting is similar to jail breaking an iPhone and allows all sorts of modifications.

Why to do it?

There are different reasons for undertaking this procedure:

  1. First and foremost, to save battery life. When administrative phone functions are freely accessible to you, it is simpler to stop, temporarily or permanently, system processes that drain battery life.
  2. Secondly, the ability to install an updated version of the operating system, or any other software you choose. Quite a number of useful Android applications require root menu access. Besides, there are the functions and menus which are usually inaccessible to the typical cell phone user, but extremely useful if applied properly.

If your aim is to use spy software installed at your phone as efficiently as possible, it’s advisable to ponder over the possibility of rooting your tiny mobile helper. Some programs (i.e. MobileSpy and StealthGenie) don’t require tackling it seriously, but in this case, you won’t make the most of some advanced reporting features (e.g. monitoring WhatsApp, Gmail and the Live Control Panel with MobileSpy). They simply won’t work to their full extent.

mSpy, an advanced mobile phone tracker, doesn’t require rooting in general as well; but again, some advanced features (Gmail, Keylogger, Instant Messengers) won’t function without it.

How to do it?

Unfortunately, there is one bulky hidden reef in this situation. As soon as you root your phone, almost all manufacturers’ warranties become void. Ways out are not numerous: either you accept this state of affairs passively, as it is, or learn how to undertake a similar process in the opposite direction if some urgent need surfaces.

It goes without saying, every new skill, and technical one in particular, is acquired through learning, practice and research. The problem with rooting is that no two phones undergo this manipulation in the same way. You can learn “how-to” either by watching topic-related videos, or reading device-specific instructions at different sites. You are free to ask available specialists plethora of questions; it’s no crime to learn at any age.

Present-day rooting applications are safe and easy to use. And you’re to remember, this procedure is totally reversible.

Procedure:

  • Backup your Android phone or device
  • Make sure your phone battery is fully charged before you begin
  • Enable USB debugging on your phone
  • Download the app for rooting to your PC. There are many different apps for rooting, varying in ease of use and support of certain range of cell phones and OS versions.
  • Unmount SD card in your phone or remove it before proceeding
  • Connect your phone to your PC via USB cable and make sure no other programs are running. Click on the app you are going to deal with, and follow the offered steps in the procedure of rooting till the very end. The whole procedure is rather quick.
  • Power off your phone and then restart. You should see your chosen rooting app on your phone. If you later decide to remove rooting, you can do it through this app again.

Now, your hands are freed to install any app you want, modify and personalize your Android phone. What is important, you can get the most out of your spy software program.

Our Verdict

To root or not to root – that is the question!

If Shakespeare lived nowadays, he’d recommend undertaking rooting, for sure. He valued freedom more than all other things in life. We can do nothing but agree.

GIVING SENIORS THE SPACE THEY NEED

July 18th, 2013 - Posted by admin

As your parents or grandparents grow old they will need more looking after, however, they will still want to maintain their dignity and independence. It is all too easy to intern them in an old people’s home, so that they can be looked after by trained professionals, however, this is not always the best option.

Maintaining your independence is important to most of us, and this is especially true amongst the elderly and infirm, so it is important that you let them have as much freedom as you possibly can. When you let them have their independence you are giving them a feeling of self-worth that they are not just there as a burden, but that they can still contribute in some way within society.

THE WAYS TO GIVE FREEDOM

One way in which you can give them their independence, yet still keep an eye on them is to install a cell phone app that allows you to keep tabs on what they are doing and where they are going. Cell phone spy software is becoming more and more popular amongst parents who want to see just what their offspring are doing when using their phones. However, it is not just parents who are using this relatively new piece of software, the middle-aged children of elderly parents are turning the tables, and they are making use of this technology in order to make sure that their parents are safe when away from the home.

Cell phone spy software is fairly straightforward to use, you simply need to get hold of the phone that you wish to download the software onto, download the app and then hand the phone back. The software runs silently in the background, so unless you have told them that it is on there, they will have no idea that their cell phone use is being monitored.

One word of caution is that this type of program will only work successfully on a smart phone, so if your elderly relative has a basic phone that allows them to call and text only, then it is not going to work. Once you have downloaded the software onto the smart phone, all you need to do in order to gain access to all of the data stored on the phone is to log-in to the company website and sign into your account.

THE FRUITS OF YOUR LABOUR

Once logged-in to your account, you will have immediate access to much of the data stored on your elderly relative’s smart phone. The kind of data that you can access includes text messages, call logs, web pages visited and the browsing history. As you are more likely to be concerned with the location of your elderly relative, you will be most interested in the feature that allows you to track their position using their cell phone. Because most smart phones have GPS built-in, you will be able to use the spy software to track the position of the phone in real time via the GPS signal it gives off.

So you will be able to keep tabs on your elderly relative and be safe in the knowledge that they are not in any difficulty.
