    What does rooting your phone really do? what happens to the stuff that is currently on the phone? is it like reformating your computer? everything is gone and time to start fresh?

    To further explain. Rooting your phone itself will not erase your current data, so it isn't like re-formatting a computer. However, when you flash a ROM, that can erase data. Think of it as loading a new OS on your computer, sometimes you can upgrade, sometimes you have to start from scratch. Same concept.
