    Welcome to the forums taylor_yoshi!

    I've moved your thread to the appropriate forum, but pretty much all of the basic information on what root is can be found in this thread - This Is What Root Means

    How to root and what tools are available to help restore your phone will vary from device to device, and device-specific information can found in the corresponding forums here. But no one should start messing around with rooting until he/she completely understands what it is, what is being done, and how to go about properly using it. And for that, the above thread will be a great place to start!
