CyanognMod to remove default 'root access' in future versions
The developers behind CyanogenMod, a popular third-party Android system ROM has announced that they have decided to no longer enable root access by default.
Future versions of CyanogenMod starting with version 9, will have this option removed by default however users will still be able to explicitly enable it.
“On a default CyanogenMod installation, root usage will have to be explicitly enabled by the user. This means that the user is fully aware that any application that uses root may perform actions that could compromise security, stability and data integrity. Once enabled, the process mirrors that of the current process, apps that request root will be flagged by theSuperUser.apk and the user will have to grant selective access”, developers said in a blog posting.
