    Ever used Linux? Root Access = access to everything; changing system settings and configurations.

    Right now, we don't have access to the system files (Like the /Windows/ folder on a PC) Once we have root access, we will be able to access, alter, add, etc to this area, and completely customize our phones.

    Hence why I added a windows analogy

    I figured most people would understand that a little better.

    It is derived from the Warcraft RTS in which the Tree of Life Uproots and becomes a weapon.

    Hence root.

    haaa... almost the same thing except his was actually helpful.

    I swear I must be the only one who types it into Google first to make sure it will show the results he/she is actually looking for.

    your joke, FAIL
