How to Root Android and Install Non-Market Apps

If what you really want is to have the latest build or running non-market Apps on your Android device then you need to consider rooting or "jailbreak". And we're going to show you how to do it.

If you've had an Android phone or tablet for a while now, or you know someone who has and they're right into technology, then you've more than likely heard about 'rooting' your device. Basically, rooting your Android gives you access to everything on your device; thus allowing you to optimize performance, modify the software, and delete all the 'bloatware' that's not wanted.

Tethered Jailbreak

A device entails a tethered jailbreak has to be connected into a computer while booting up. This is to ensure that the jailbreaking program, such as redsn0w can aid the device boot up process. It’s known as a "tethered" jailbreak because your device has to be linked to a computer to boot up correctly. Tethered jailbreak is annoying and unsatisfying because they involve a computer connection to boot a jail-broken iOS tool. The notion of a tethered jailbreak has been exercised for a while, but basically it means that each and every time your iPhone or iPod touch battery croaks i.e. reboots, you have to tether or connect your iOS device with a computer. This allows the hardware to boot with the assistance of the jailbreak application tool. Continue reading...
