    Hi! I know this will sound like a dumb question but what does rooting and overlooking mean? Thanks

    G.Armour You know you want to.

    Welcome to the Android Forums! Rooting means that you are able to use superuser abilities, you can flash custom roms, and use special apps that you can only use with root. OC'ing means that you flash a new kernel, you can speed your phone up that way.
