By opening up the Android internal root file system of the Huawei U8300, you are opening up the Android operating system to give you greater power than Android developers originally set out to give you. There are many advantages to rooting your Huawei smartphone. However, with those chances of having greater power also come additional risks. You cannot have access to the root file system when you buy the device. Once you have root access, you have an all access pass to the file system and that means it’s possible you delete some important files. In short, Linux works great with root access and allows you to have greater control over your phone.
