    This article is a must read for anyone who throws around the term root and has no idea what it is. I feel like this is one of the biggest misconceptions of new Android users, not understanding the term "rooting" and using it interchangeably with installing a custom ROM.

    Please take 2 minutes to read this article and learn a few terms before flooding threads with posts that make no sense.

    I don't understand how "googleing" something becomes an afterthought while people are in forums. People will google, "how to get pregnant" and "how to start a group on facebook." But "what is root?" or other android related things people wouldn't think to search for. lol. Or so it seems.
