comment How to switch user profile based on password / lockscreen pattern
@ThisName They can't support that because they can't know everything for every configuration and it's dangerous. The company can't bear the damage done on a rooted device because possibilities of soft or hard damages are endless. Look at their Terms and Conditions. Xiaomi for example supports rooting based on a ROM released by the same company but it doesn't cover everything.

comment How is the Gmail password stored in Android - and where?
@Sopalajo With root access, you can play God. With access to internal storage, you can extract the plain password the way KeyChain does (remember, KeyChain also needs to make plain password available to the app) unless the device features special hardware encryption. Even with the hardware encryption, the running KeyChain's process can be hacked from the RAM (the encryption key always come inside the RAM; also check Cold Boot attack to get an idea).
