    Then do a search of the forum using the word rooting.

    This is rooting in a nutshell.

    Giving yourself root, or superuser (admin) access, giving you access to system files and the ability to change things that normally are marked read only

    This allows you to change all kinds of things that normally you wouldn't be able to, along with install custom versions of Android.
