This question was started from our friend of mine related to switching over an iPhone to Android. He asked us about the benefits to do so. So, we just mentioned that it needs the ability of rooting the phone. We were surprised by his statement that it just the same as jailbreak his iPhone, so it just the same according him about rooting and jailbreaking. In this case, we are pretty sure that many users for both Android and also IOS actually do not understand more that there is a big difference between Android root access and also IOS jailbreak. Of course, we cannot absolutely do like “jailbreak” Android or something like “root” IOS. At this time, to make it clear that the case is not the same. Why so? Here, we would like to give you more explanations about why it is different and why it is not the same between jailbreaking IOS and rooting android.
Some users will “jailbreak” after purchasing the device since it allows the device to perform certain things on it which cannot be done if it is not jailbreak. So, how to say it in simple way? Jailbreaking means that you remove any limitations and restrictions that have been done by Apple on your device for IOS operating system. To do so, a custom kernel could grant the root access to the device. This jailbreaking action will make you able to download all apps that do not supported by Apple in its market, so you can take a walk finding apps in other places even if you still have an access to visit App Store. So, absolutely you can find out more softwares and apps that do not supported by Apple. Indeed, it is different from “rooting”.
As we know that Apple is not an open source system so you cannot do any changes about the source code. However, android is an open sourcing operating system too, but it allows you to install 3rd party apps.
So, rooting means giving you an access to more or less with the operating system, you can remove OS and then replace it with user made operating system which contained about enhancement and tweaks(called as ROMS). You can access and adjust the settings .
