    hi,

    i think it means get root user, sort of a super user, permissions for your phone - so you/apps can do more stuff on it - its good to have when you are flashing roms etc

    ....but i will let SU tell you more, maybe ;)

    cheers

    Pulling root isn't a term I'm familiar with

    Pulling root might be a slang for unrooting, but I've never heard it either.....
