Vivo Y12s: How to Root the Phone

Rooting an entry-level phone such as the Vivo Y12s that came out back in 2020 is a good way to get more power out of it. Yesterday, we spoke about how to root a Xiaomi Redmi 9A device, which is also a phone that’s far from having flagship specs.

Rooting your Android device is also a good way to bypass restrictions. Thus, you can squeeze more hardware power out of a phone that you root. You can also get deep into the Android operating system by simply opting for a rooting process. While the process might seem complicated at first, it will become a lot easier once you start.

Disadvantages of rooting your Vivo Y12s

Before starting to root your Vivo Y12s, it’s important to keep in mind a few disadvantages. Although there are clearly some powerful advantages, rooting your Vivo Y12s remains a two-edged sword. Here’s what happens if you root your phone:
