    Nevermind - I got it. Root = root directory, admin rights.

    Thanks, though.

    Why do you want to root your phone? From what you've said you don't really sound like someone who should be rooting right now, no offense.

    For what it's worth I haven't done it either.

    Even if I wanted to, I doubt anyone's figured out how to root my device yet, not in the english speaking world.
