The benefits of this procedure

Bloatware or security problems will not exist. But these will: new features and customization tweaks. The SRSRoot can unroot the smartphone, too. Which, by the way, works with many Android versions. The phone has this variant: Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread. A Build ID is required for the device’s rooting; our pick was this: GINGERBREAD.RUXKJ7. The SRSRoot will accept many other Build IDs you may choose to use instead of ours. The Samsung SGH-I727R will experiment with these, too: custom ROMs.

You have to be warned: root access will be revoked if your phone is upgraded. The system partition will be deleted, but the important data won’t go through that. The smartphone’s warranty will not stay where it is. Rooting the phone means the loss of the warranty. The loss, however, isn’t permanent. You will get it back if you follow a tutorial dedicated to the matter.
