Rooting gives access to admin files, in time there will be some kind developer that will create a custom kernel, this could allow us to change aspects of how the interface works, control what the processor speed is for certain tasks, giving better control over battery usage!

to mention custom Roms changing the look of things such as icons on the top bar and other customisations(my s2 has a blue Android man for battery icon!)

with little in way of choice for Roms, kernels etc, I have root to allow me to back up apps easily and although I maybe shouldn't have, I backed up s2 apps to sd card, and restored them on s4 so I've saved my gameplay in games like angry birds.

IAlso make use of adaway which as the name suggests, removes advertisements in the free games and other such apps.
