How to root/flash your Android smartphone with SuperSU by TWRP recovery
In today’s generation having an Android smartphone is bit common thing. While the Android smartphone companies have a huge fight among them by launching best feature and specification smartphones in the market. This fight along companies helps us to get best quality Android smartphones. Some companies have best and some worst but the fight continues between them. However, after using the device we get bored due to its slower performance. Nothing to worry about we have a solution, rooting/flashing your smartphone.
Why root an Android smartphone/tablet?
Why root any Android device? Simple! Rooting your device allows you to use the Android smartphone/tablet to its full capacity. Android smartphone owners like Samsung, HTC, LG etc. don’t allow users root access to the internals of their smartphones. They often ship their smartphones with lots of bloatware/spyware which is natively installed in the root. One of the advantages of rooting your Android smartphone is that you can uninstall such normally un-uninstallable Apps.
Another main advantage of rooting is that it allows you to use all your cores (Quad core or Octa-core as you wish. Smartphone manufacturers only use two cores out of Quad core processors on any Android smartphone. The other two are kept as standby. Rooting allows you to use these two unused cores and thereby make your smartphone faster and agiler.
Rooting also allows superuser permissions needed to write to the system partition. Once you get these permissions you can install many Apps which are normally not installable on your Android smartphone/Tablet. Apps like Xposed, flash custom ROMs, and an assortment of other tweak Apps that make the Android OS customisable according to your liking can be installed but only after rooting.

It provides a touchscreen-enabled interface that allows users to install third-party firmware and back up the current system, functions often unsupported by stock recovery images. It is, therefore, often installed when rooting Android devices, although it isn’t dependent on a device being rooted to be installed.
