    root or rooting your phone is the process of modifying the software on your device to grant you complete control over it.

    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 flavor of Android.

    the name root comes from the Linux operating system world, where the most privileged user on the system (otherwise known as Administrator on Windows) is called root.

    Obligatory Warning: rooting your phone does run the risk of potentially bricking it (i.e. your phone could become nonfunctional) – so do your homework before attempting anything, unless you’re a fan of $500 paper weights. it also voids warranty.

    by doing this you will have complete access to alter any system files, use themes, change boot images, delete annoying stock apps and flash custom roms & kernels :)

    to get you started for root
    unrevoked forever radio S-OFF/S-ON tool
    unrevoked 3 - root & reflash

    roms

    The principle benefit is making the phone truly YOUR phone, and freeing yourself from the diet of whatever Verizon and Motorola feel like feeding you. Why settle for one dish, when you can have smorgasbord?
