    Rooting the phone basically means the same thing as jailbreaking. by passing the OS's permission system to give the user SU (superuser permissions)
    this allows applications to do things that otherwise could not have been done... reboot your phone automatically for instance or snap screenshots.
    It also allows you to install custom roms


    thats the basics maybe try this link for more info
    Let me google that for you
