    I would advise against "easy" rooting. Knowing what's being done will come in handy when/if things go wrong in the future.

    To answer your question rooting gives you administrative permisions so that you can do things you ordinarily couldn't. Things like loading custom roms, adding themes, and using root apps like those that help you over/under clock the cpu or take screenshots.
