How many of you have tried to answer the question, what is root anyway? For new users, are you scared to ask? Afraid that you're not going to understand? I've noticed, with all of the people who are moving to Android, there is a growing gulf of knowledge. Most of us were skinning and rooting our WinMo phones for a decade before Android came out, so to us, it's the status quo. But how about the guy who just traded in his Moto Razor last week? He hears the word "kernel" and literally thinks about popcorn. I decided to write a little summary, trying to go as basic as I possibly could. Hopefully, we can use this as an initiation, a starting place if you will. Feel free to critique/flame, and steal as you'd like. If you want to put it in a guide, that's cool too. Enjoy!!
