What is Rooting?

Rooting your Android devise means to gain full access to it. Rooting,the term traces its origin to Linux,where a user with a root privilege is a ‘Superuser’ and can actually modify the system settings as per his demand.This means you can overcome limitations that the carriers and manufacturers put on your phone, extend system functionality, and even upgrade it to a custom version of Android.

Rooting would actually allow you to gain access to the Administrative privilege on your device  so you can install/modify/fix/break anything you want.

By rooting your phone, you also lose you’re warranty, so you should unroot your phone (resetting to the original state) before sending it to a service

Rooting is not equals to installing a Custom Rom. You’ll still have your ROM, but you’ll have more options (you can install more programs that requires root access, you can remove stock apps), but installing a custom ROM requires rooting first

There are 3 levels of “root” :
Level 1: Shell Root (with ratc rooting the adb shell but no /system write access)
Level 2: Temporary Root (/system/bin/su installed but lost on reboot)
Level 3: Full Root (/system/bin/su installed and sticks)

To root your phone, you can search on Google specific information about how to root your phone, because there are lot’s or models which requires different techniques or if you have a HTC, you can try rooting it with Unrevoked
