comment Why is root access required for a custom ROM?
@Izzy Just to be clear, when you say I may be given access to the entire SD card through UMS mode, I'm assuming you mean the external SD card that may or may not be present rather than the internal memory holding the file system?

comment Why is root access required for a custom ROM?
@MatthewRead Can't agree more with your statement, however measuring "help" is difficult when I'm asking for an explanation. I don't generally accept answers based on rep or number of votes, but in this case I would. I have nothing to test the answers are correct, nor will I be in a position to fully understand the answers for quite a long time. Saying that, when the time comes when I can appreciate both answers, then I'd happily revise the accepted answer.

@LiamW It's hardly prejudice and you're quite right - high reputation doesn't always mean a valid answer, however considering I asked a question which I had no way of testing the answer I also rely on the community and their votes to find an acceptable answer. As I said, feel free to expand your answer which disproves the answer provided by Izzy and assuming the community agree, I'll happily make yours the accepted answer. :)

comment Why is root access required for a custom ROM?
@LiamW As my question states - I'm very ignorant with mobile OSes, and Izzy has 13.3k reputation which indicates he knows a thing of two more about this than myself; as such, I assume his answer is fully correct as I don't know anything to the contrary; also his answer was also the highest voted (again indicating it's technically correct). Nevertheless if you believe his answer to be incorrect, feel free to update your answer and if the votes swing I'll change the accepted answer.
