“If you can’t get root, you don’t own it.” A primary reason to mod your Android is to prolong the life of a device that is no longer receiving updates.

Better to do this with phones from manufacturers that provide tools; with other phones, tools can be less reliable. You can brick your phone if the power or connection fails during installation.
