Rooting the ZTE A880 is like giving it administrator permissions. Unfortunately, when we buy devices that run Android OS, we are already buying devices that are locked. We call this locking it up with factory restrictions. It’s a different type of locking that is not to be confused with having a device that’s locked to a phone carrier network.
The locking when we are referring to the operating system itself is when Google prevent us from having full system access to the Android root file system. The main thing this interrupts is our installation of apps. When we think about security and malware, it’s important to secure the apps because that’s really the only way malware can get on our devices. So by locking the operating system they are also locking the app s owe cannot use many of them.
