For a long time I've still been carrying a Flip-Phone. I feel like it's time to finally upgrade, especially if I have a goal of working in IT. As a Linux user, I'm very interesting in really exploring the phone operating system. I do of course have Sudo or Root on my computers and I've heard of people gaining this access to their phone. If anyone here had done that I'm curious what your experience was. Is this difficult to do? Is it worth the trouble? Did you think the phone could be made more Secure? Or does Rooting create a Security risk? Also, I'm sort of aware that phones might have a factory reset. If someone thinks they borked their own phone can they just reset it?
