    Rooting your phone means giving yourself root, or superuser access, giving you access to system files and the ability to change things that normally are marked read only.
    Rooting voids your warranty .
    Rooting is fairly simple and safe.However there may exist a phone which bricks after rooting.In that case,if recovery works factory reset can be done.If not fairly ,depends on your luck.You are responsible for whatever you do after reading this post.
    I have used z4root,and UniversalANDroot .Both work flawlessly on my phone.
    I will recommend z4root as it is more simple and it installs busybox .

    Download and install apk .Run z4root and follow the instructions.
    Have fun unleashing freedom :D

    For people who have updated to KD4 firmware,z4root and UniversalANDroot wont root.
    The usual SuperOneClick works though .It's a simple method which uses adb exploit.No hassles if you follow instructions correctly.Requires Mono or .net :D
