    Gives you access to every file on your phone so you can edit them.

    Doing so we can flash new roms and themes. Free wifi tether. Speed up the phone and also lower the voltage to save battery. Just a few reasons.

    Root gives you a little more functionality of your phone. "Root' is the term Linux users vs. Administration in Microsoft's.
