CyanogenMod, one of the most populat alternative Android ROMS, will no longer ship root access by default. It will now be a user enabled option.
Root access is required for apps that are used by developers and advanced users. Root access also has security issues that the ordinary non developer user doesn’t need.
When CyanogenMod was in default, common users have no use for it, and have no idea that it was on. Hence they are unaware of the security dangers it poses.
Now, the root access will no longer be by default on the CyanogenMod 9. Users can now choose between disabled, enabled for ADB, enabled for app, and enabled for both. Switching between options will alsi be a breeze within the Developer Options menu.
