    What is this "root" thing on an HTC EVO 4G.

    Just got phone last week.
    System 2.2
    Laptop kept getting a pop up screen Re. need to find additional drivers for ADB (?) Called customer service, told me to get "uncorrupted" 2.1 system flash at Sprint store. Went to Sprint store. The flashed 2.2, said not able to flash 2.1. Phone now seems to be working, but I don't really know, since I have no history with this phone various system upgrades. It's new to me, as of last week.

    So, what is this root thing ?
    Where can I get/read a primitive, newby, type instructional on this.
    Thanks.

    *To everyone remember we were all new at one time.If you have time to insult them then you had time to actually be helpful and provide links to something that would answer their questions.

    Its cool,just want everyone to sit back and think about it.This place is known for being very helpful and that you don't have to worry about people bashing or given a hard time for a question.Yeah it might be asked a million times but owell that happens.
    I would rather be known as the guy that answered the same question a million times then the guy that was rude.

    Thanks.
