    Welcome, rooting just gives you full access to the file system on your phone, to do what you want.

    Do a lot of reading before attempting anything ;)

    If you are considering rooting I suggest that you read as many different threads as you can. Make notes and if you have questions post them. Then, if you decide to root the community will be here to assist if you have problems

    Hope this is helpful.
