    (not my words - those were written by the OP of the link.

    From the link:

    First question we'll tackle is "what is root?":
    To have root access on a linux based system such as android means you have the equivalent access of Administrator on a Windows based computer. You will have unrestricted full access to nearly all aspects of the android system stack.
