    I just read an article on Engadget about rooting the Droid. Motorola Droid finally rooted? -- Engadget Mobile

    The article was written for an audience that has some technical knowledge of this. Just curious what does it mean to root an Android device and why one would want to do that.

    Check out this link. It gives a simple definition on what it means, and some of the benefits of rooting.
