Rooting a device and installing a custom Rom makes you take control of the device. With this ability, you can vary the clock speed of the processor thus making your device run faster, add various themes to improve your device look, upgrade OS on your same device and experience its features, add custom Rom, and unlock variety of other option.

Make sure you have rooted your device and if u haven’t read the article unlocking nexus 9 or else install root checker from android market free and check is your device rooted well.
