    Can anyone explain to me please what is the difference between the charge the way it came and if you root it. I don't know what root means. Thank you.

    Root doesn't change how the phone runs or operates - it will still look the same...it is like giving yourself admin rights on a computer vs guest priv's...you are able to access, edit, modify ALL files on the phone. It is these actions that can change how the phone runs / operates and that is where it can cause problems for the end-user if you do not understand the changes being made.

    one major thing rooting does is allow you to get rid of the bloatware that comes on these phones. i used titanium backup to freeze all the files that are safe to freeze from the same site thats posted above and my phone runs a million times faster.
