Lineage OS has numerous inbuilt features which are not found in stock Android ROMs. Once you have root access to your Android phone, you can easily tweak the settings, customize boot animation, add your own boot scripts, change the CPU frequency settings and much more. This is a fantastic feature for developers and advances users as enabling the root access gives them an opportunity to learn numerous things by changing and modifying the system settings.

In this article, you will be learning how you can enable root access on Lineage OS. As you might have heard, Lineage OS is a recently released custom ROM. It comes with root manager but the root access setting is not active by default, and you will have to enable the root access manually.

The process of enabling root access on Lineage ROM is very similar to that of CM14 or any other CyanogenMod ROM which was released before that. Lineage OS gives the users an opportunity to choose which apps get root access and which don’t.
