Welcome to the forums!

Rooting a phone is the same thing as getting Admin access on a PC.

From there, you get more options and control of your phone, for example, installing DroidWall, the Android firewall, or getting more backup options.

In addition, yes, you can replace the system altogether, but that's not the only point of rooting. And as anoniemouse says, not really desirable here.

Moving this to our root forum for you.

Minutus cantorum, minutus balorum, minutus carborata descendum pantorum.

For right-on help, the Thanks button is on the right of the post.
For anything out in left field, the /!\ report button is to the left.

Remember, it's our forums and we're all in this together - so let's keep it cool!

Shoot the breeze at the best new gun forum!
