    exactly what it says: it gives acces to the root of your mobile.

    the root is where all system data and preferences are stored. ull be able to literally customize everything from themes to entire ROMs (kind of like operating system). hell, if u want iOS4 from iphone u can install it on there (not saying you should). possibilities are endless.

    one mayor downside: rooting expires your warranty so if the device breaks, ur f***'d
